So I just got off the phone with Bronson Maternal Fetal Medicine. I have an appointment scheduled for December 7th. There they will do an ultrasound and check my cervical length.... Yay! Here we go again.... After that I will have my cerclage scheduled for within a week to 10 days. (For those who don't know, a cerclage is a stitch put in my cervix to hopefully keep it CLOSED!!!) I will be out of comission for a little while after that. It is a sort of out-patient procedure. It will involve an epidural and at least 8-12 hours in the hospital for monitoring. After the procedure I will probably have to be on bedrest at home for 4-7 days depending on what the doctor says.... Should be fun with Cameron not understanding why Mommy can't play with him!
Let's all keep our fingers crossed that this cerclage will keep this little one where it is supposed to be for the WHOLE pregnancy! And relieve me from having to be on bedrest! There is still a chance I will have to go on bedrest eventually, but we are hoping not. And we will cross that bridge when we get to it! I will still have weekly or bi-weekly cervical length monitoring to ensure that the stitch is doing its job!
Alright. Enough babbling! Now this blog is not just about Cameron! It is about BOTH our babies!
