Hello everyone, We had a doctors appt. yesterday at 18w5d. I was getting a little nervous about the appt. because I am getting further along. Logan and I were in the ultrasound room and doctor Monti walked in. We were watching our little girl moving all around. Both of us were very excited to see her, but we still had my cervix length in the back of our minds. Monti looked at the ultrasound tech and said "her cervix is very short, and we need to..." Logan and I both went into panic mode, I was thinking hospitalization. I was still holding up pretty well. Then they explained they just wanted to do a trans vaginal ultrasound. Monti wasn't saying my cervix now was short, he was just explaining we needed to look at my cervix. So they start doing the trans vaginal U/S, Logan says my prediction is 5.3....I laughed and told him my cervix has never been that long, even when I wasn't pregnant. My nurse laughed and said, Logan is right. I couldn't believe it. The longest my cervix has ever been is 4.1. When I had my cerclage put in it was only 1.5. This bed rest thing is really working. I am so excited. Here are a few pictures of our little one. I will reveal her name next Wednesday...There is a great story that goes with why we chose the name we did.
