I guess I shouldn't have said my cervix is a champ on a previous post! At our second anatomy scan last week (in which all babies were healthy, and no apparent heart defect for Allie!!!) my cervix measured 4.5 cm, and at a growth ultrasound yesterday it measured a little less than 2 cm, and it was funneling (opening at the top but not the bottom). So that equaled an automatic hospital admission for the rest of the pregnancy. I am terrified and so nervous, but I know I am in great hands here. All of the doctors, nurses, and staff have all been absolutely amazing. The plan is just hospital bed rest, progesterone, and a possible cerclage. The doctors are on the fence with the cerclage, some think it's beneficial and some do not. The decision will be up to me whether to get one or not, we will be going over all the facts and data soon. They will be checking my cervix by ultrasound every 2-3 days, or sooner if there appears to be an issue. Ella did not want to leave me last night and it was heartbreaking to say the least. She kept saying she wanted "mommy cuddles" and kept trying to get back in the bed with me. Larry just had to leave quick because I started bawling and I didn't want her to see me upset. I know I need to be here and I am glad I am here for the safety of these babies, but I am going to miss my big girl so much, it's going to be a huge adjustment for us all.
The babies were great yesterday on the ultrasound. Allie is 15 ounces and Abby, Carson, and Corbin all weigh a pound. They were all extremely active and looking great! We would appreciate any prayers, positive vibes, well wishes, or whatever it is that you believe in! I am so thankful that we are surrounded by wonderful, supportive people!
