At my appointment this week we did find that my cervix is shortening, but not funneling. Dr. S said he is not going to get too concerned unless it gets below 2.5 cm and I start dilating. It is currently at 2.7 cm with no dilating (he measured 3 or 4 times to be sure). For those of you who don't know, most normal pregnant women have a cervix that measures around 4 or 5. I am not on any restrictions yet and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have to. He did tell me to use my best judgement and I will be going back for another measurement in 2 weeks.
I was just looking at my ruler and 2.5 cm is just over an inch. It's incredible when you really think about what a woman's body does when she is carrying a baby! So crazy!! I can't believe we have less than 15 weeks until our due date. Before you know it we will be a family of 5 (plus the dog) with 2 little boys in our home. It is so amazing that this is happening again. It still hasn't sunk in for me and I am really not sure it will until Cooper gets here or maybe even until he's a year old since I am just barely able to look at Sawyer and not wonder when someone is going to wake me up from this incredible dream!
I am so blessed and feel so undeserving of all that has been given to me. I only hope I can show my appreciation by being the best mom possible for my beautiful children!
