My second I had preterm labor starting at around 30 weeks, full blown at 34 although they stopped it. Both pregnancies I delivered at 37 weeks exactly.
This time I have a even more sensitive cervix than last time ( I was on bedrest with both girls for months, in the hospital with #2 from bleeding).
I am 10 weeks and I have been bleeding daily since 5 weeks. I am on modified bedrest for now, and pelvic rest since 5 weeks. I will be put on full on bedrest by about 20 weeks my doctor said if things do not change. I am mostly concerned because I am a photographer and I have a wedding this weekend. 6 hours of work I can't get out of it but I did get a second shooter thank goodness. I told my doctor and he okay'd it just said to sit as often as possible. Prayers that Saturday goes well please!
It sounds like you have a long road ahead of you! I hope that you are able to carry to term. Prayers that the wedding goes off well for you!

I was sent to labor and delivery a few weeks in a row.

I made it to 37 weeks and had a smooth scheduled repeat c- section (stalled labor with my first). Everything has been great since. I know you all can make it and I hope for nothing but positive outcomes for all of you!!!
My son's head is already measuring almost a week ahead. I am thankful he can't come out of me the old fashion way! Glad everything went well for you!

I am sorry you are having to deal with an IC. However I have only seen good things with Cerclage once it is placed. I have even known some women who got it done prior to conception. I hope all goes well with you! Many prayers for Thursday. You are exactly 3 weeks behind me!

If you have any specific Qs Id be happy to help.

Kristen - Helpmeet to an amazing DH. Mama to seven blessings (and #8 on the way!)
I may very well take you up on the offer! I have been pretty anxious about everything but I tend to find one thing to obsess over and focus my anxiety on. This week its definitely breastfeeding!

Good luck and welcome!

AFM - I had a non-OB ultrasound today (for my oncologist) and it was uneventful. So I think I will not be hearing from her till April! My son (inside me) was dancing around a bit but that just was reassuring! DS (outside) was well behaved too. Next appointment is OB on Tuesday (a week from tomorrow).
Glad the US went well and that you got a peek at the baby, too!

Good luck on Thursday.

My DH just got back from a deployment (I am living with my mom until baby is born). He has to go back to our home station in two weeks but its been so nice to have him here all day! And i dont feel nearly as guilty asking him to do things for me as I do my mom.

Re: Any interest in a high risk thread?

Welcome. And hello again to the rest of you ladies.

My beta levels were at a bit over 9600 yesterday so good increase and no more bleeding so far. I am getting hungrier lol. I am getting optimistic over here!

Next ultrasound and first appointment are scheduled for February 28th. Wish me luck. I can't wait to see a little heart beat!

I wish all of you the very best.

I am so glad that your able to spend some time with your DH before he goes off again. That has to be hard. Will he be able to be around for the birth or is that still up in the air?

Glad your not having any more bleeding! That is always welcome! Good luck in a week!

AFM - I got no word from my oncologist today so I think I passed my ultrasound! She would have called by now if it was bad. No news is really good news with her. Little guy was a bit quiet today but I am still just 16w 6d so I think he can hide. I did feel him when I tried to get him to move a bit this afternoon. I can't wait for the BIG FAT kicks! I have video of my last son kicking me from the inside. It is so cool! I hope to do that again with this baby.

DH will definitely be there for the scheduled c-sec. If I dont make it that far he will hop on a plane as soon as the mfm opts for delivery. So he may or may not make it, but he wasnt supposed to be home til May so we are just happy he is in the States at all.

Yay for no news!

Welcome! I hope that you have a smooth pregnancy!

AFM - Yesterday I put myself on the prayer list at church. Mom said a few people did this at her work for me too (she lives in Florida). I also changed the blog a bit for the new people that will be visiting soon. LOVE the blog. Helps with all the questions that people ask when your in a high risk situation.

How is everyone doing?

I went to the OB today and all I found out is that I am doing well, and if I need a blood transfusion at delivery, I need special blood. I guess it has to be extra clean or something because of my history of lymphoma.
