Want to hear some more about my cervix?

Whether you want to or not.... here is the skinny on my cervix today.

It's shorter.

Minimally so, but shorter. Today's measurements ranged from a maximum of 2.9 cm to a minimum somewhere between 2.4 and 2.5 cm. The perinatologist on duty today said to go home, go to bed, keep gravity off the cervix, and come back Friday morning for another scan.

If it is shorter on Friday, he will then have me go straight to the hospital for admission. I would then have a cerclage either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. I don't know how long I would be in the hospital for; not sure if it's just a day surgery type thing or if they would keep me another day or what. That's the one thing that I didn't ask in the 30 minutes I spent talking to the doctor.

On a bit of an uplifting note, there had been some funneling at the uterine side of the cervix on Friday. It wasn't a lot and nobody was overly concerned about it. While there is still some funneling today, it appears to be less significant than it was on Friday. Yet another reason for the doctor to feel optimistic and to say, "Whatever it is that you're not doing? Keep not doing it!" In short -- stay the hell in bed and don't do anything to jeopardize things.

Finally, my child will not reveal his/her sex! Today he/she had his/her legs wide open. The probe was moved for a good view and immediately the child wiggled completely out of the frame and took up residence elsewhere in the uterus. When the sonographer followed? The baby wiggled back to it's original placement leaving us looking at the top of his/her head. Maybe Friday we'll get lucky and know something. Or next week. Or, you know, the day the child is born.

Gravity off the cervix?? Pardon my french but what the fuck? Are you supposed to hang upside down? I'm glad things are not worse worse but I say stitch it and soon.
