Thanks mama, it's just scary when you're a mama to a 25 week preemie and a 31 week preemie. They are so high of a risk for so many issues and complications, I'd hate to find out I added to those issues. I feel badly enough that my body does not handle jarring/trauma/stress of any kind. I had 3 u/s with dd1. one when I went in cause we had NO idea what the due date was and the one at 20 weeks.
With dd2 though, we had one for due date, for high risk ***., one at 12 weeks for another high risk check, one at 16 weeks to check my cervix, and one every two weeks after that for cervix checks. The day before I had my daughter ( 31 weeks, 1 day) my cervix had shortened to half it's previous length. Then I fell down an entire flight of stairs, and 25 hours later I had my sweet little girl. It's sad, too cause on that last visit I was given a note to avoid going to work. I wonder if I would have made it to term all the time if I would have gone to work instead
Happily adding to our beautiful family
