My appointment today was okay overall. My cervix has shortened a bit. It has gone from around 3.2 cm to 2.6 cm. Not a huge change but enough to make me sweat it a little bit. Dr. S didn't seem too concerned. What really concerned me was his excitement about me making it to 24 weeks. He kept asking me if I was excited and telling me I'm almost there. I hope his excitement is only about the big milestone and not because he is thinking Sawyer will be making an appearance soon. I really don't want Sawyer to come for a long time. I want him to be very healthy and able to come home right away!
I have a little bit of concern about the ultrasounds too. Today, before my appt. I felt great. No contractions, no headaches. Then about 15 minutes after the ultrasound I felt the contractions start. So I am gearing up for another headache today but hopefully the contractions stop.
I will go back next Tuesday for another ultrasound and then again on Friday. After that he may change it so that I only see him once a week. I also did my first progesterone injection last night. It is the same type of thing I had to do when I did IVF so it's nothing new and it's only once a week so I am sure we can handle it. I just hope it helps. There is not any real proof that it does but it's worth a shot!
