Update - 26 weeks 6 days

We came in to my doctor again today to re-check cervix length.  It went from 2.3 cm to 2.07 cm in the last three days.  This is not dire news, but it was enough to have them go ahead and admit me to the hospital.  I will be on bedrest here most likely until I deliver.  I am still able to get up and go to the bathroom, take a shower, etc., but that's it.  I am not hooked up to IV's or anything and will only need to monitor contractions twice a day for approximately 30 minutes at a time.  A perinatologist (doctor specializing in high risk pregnancy) will come in 2-3 times a week to do an ultrasound and check my cervix.  With me being here, if anything changes or there are any concerns, they have the ability to react immediately, which is good.

The doctor stated that it is not very likely that I'll deliver in the next week or two, in fact he thinks we'll make it to 30 weeks just fine, possibly even 32.  Of course, there is no guarantee and no way to know exactly what's going to happen, but it's nice to hear.

I will continue to update here as I'm able and as anything new happens! 


  1. Wish I could be there with you, sister!

  2. Praying for you Kerri! Take care and miss you at work :)

  3. Oh, Kerri! I'm praying for you and your sweet baby girl! Love.
