The Good News and the Bad News - 25 weeks

I had a cervical length ultrasound check today and it was a bit of a good news / bad news situation.  The good news was that Boo2 is growing perfectly, he was on target in all of his measurements (though they don't do a full growth scan until 32 weeks) which really put my mind at rest on his growth.  He was a few days behind a couple of weeks ago but now he is bang on target for the number of weeks which makes me very happy indeed!!

The bad news is that my cervical length has gone from a steady 3.3cm to 2.65cm - a significant reduction in only just over 2 weeks.  I called my doctor because I was very worried and he said it is fine, nothing to worry about.  All of the research that I have done suggests preterm birth with a cervix length of less than 3cm at 25 weeks.  

I really don't want him to come early, there are just so many risks.  I really would like to get to the 38 weeks to have the Ceasar so he has every chance in the world but I am feeling that this is becoming less and less likely.  I will be able to talk further with my Doctor on Monday about anything that I can do to help this situation but I suspect that the answer will be 'nothing'.

I feel a bit beaten down.  I know I will feel better in a day or two but honestly, it would be nice to go into scan and not feel more worried when I came out.  The crazy part is that the last 2 weeks I have really reduced as much activity as possible and have rested as much as I can.  I think I am going to have to be even stricter with myself from now on.

**Sigh** I really, really just want this precious little baby to be safe and stay in for as long as possible.  I really want that.  I am praying.

  2. Oh goodness. Why is it that things can never just go smoothly? I'm so sorry that you have an extra worry added to what I'm sure is already a full plate. You'll be in my thoughts and prayers for that little one to stay put for a long time. Hang in there!

  3. HI dear! SO sorry for the ups and downs:( have you read "It is what it is"'s blog? She had an ever shortening cervix for much of the last few months of her pregnancy and she has a lot of wisdom on her blog about it. She ended up going in for her scheduled C section at 39 weeks or thereabouts. I think from reading her blog I gathered that there is not much to do, but that taking it easy can really ease your mind. Hoping for the best for you and your sweet baby!

  4. Hi every one, here every one is sharing these kinds of knowledge, therefore it's good to read this website, and I used to pay a quick visit this blog daily.

  5. Can I simply say what a relief to uncover a person
    that actually understands what they are discussing on the internet.

    You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More and more people really need to read this and understand this side
    of your story. I was surprised you are not more popular because you most certainly
    possess the gift.
