It's been a rough week. I have had quite a lot of pain this week and if I knew it was all normal pain I could deal with it. But it didn't feel normal and so I was a little bit on edge. I did go to L&D on Tuesday night and didn't have one contraction the entire time I was hooked up to the monitors, but as soon as I stood up... they came right back! I feel okay if I am sitting or lying down so I have been trying to do that as much as possible. I was really looking forward to seeing Dr. S yesterday cause I was hoping he could shed some light on what was going on. Unfortunately all he could tell me was that I needed to take it easy and keep doing what I am doing. Which is practically nothing. I mean other than doing my weekly injections of progesterone and taking the nifedipine when I feel like I need it. He did do an ultrasound this week and my cervix is measuring about the same, 2.6 cm. On the ultrasound it did look like my cervix had started to dilate a little bit, but when he checked me it wasn't enough to cause concern. I am still high, closed and posterior (whatever that means). I will go back next week to see him again.
I still can't believe that we are in the 3rd trimester! Not only that, but I am having a baby shower tomorrow! It is just so unreal to me. My sister, mom and my two besties have been working so hard on it. I feel guilty! I don't feel like I deserve it but I am going to enjoy it anyway because Sawyer is definitely something to celebrate about. I love my little monkey!
