And they said it couldn't be done!

We finished up the anatomy scan today. My little boy still looks perfect. Except his ear is shaped like his daddy's. Now, Mr. W's ears are adorable...I love them. However they are HUGE in all childhood pictures of him until, roughly, his senior year of high school. He has the ears of his dad's dad. Yes, it appears my little man is inheriting his great-grandfather's ears, which family legend says were HUGE (Mr. W's grandfather died the year we started dating while still at his Florida condo for the winter; I never met him and had never seen a picture of him until Mr. W found one a little over a month ago that he had taken as a child; fuzzy and out of focus, so, you know...I'll take their word on the ears).

But that isn't what they said couldn't be done. This is. Are you ready for it?

MY CERVIX GREW BACK (some)!!!!!!! Seriously. They said in theory it was possible but it didn't really happen. After last week with it bottoming out below 2.5 (at 2.4something), I felt sure this week would be cerclage time. But the short measurement was 2.6something (I want to say 2.62)! And the long measurement was OUT OF THE 2 CM RANGE ALL TOGETHER! My long measurement was 3.02 cm! The opening of the cervix has stayed the same-ish (about 0.4 cm) and the amniotic sac is still nicely up in the uterus. There is some fluid in the cervix, which they think is a whole lot of mucus (duh -- with the amount that comes OUT of me? I could tell you there's a WHOLE lot of it in there!)

I am still on bed rest, but it looks like things are going to be good as I hit 20 weeks next week. Me. Possibly getting there. I never would have thought it possible.

And now, even though it's 2:30 and I'm going crazy with the acid reflux, I'm going to have to add more food to my belly. It isn't good for the lowercase w to eat nothing. And who knows, maybe this will be the meal that finally forces my bowels to start working again after their 2 day hiatus. Perhaps I'll chase down the leftover pizza with some MORE metamucil.

Wonderful news! Yay for lowercase w, that's such a cute nickname.
Here's to good news and a cervix that 'grew back!' Yea!!

(Oh, and Juliana got her dad's ears--small but they stick out, no lie, like satellite dishes! I just hope she grows her hair out long to hide them!)

Keep up the great gestating :-)
