My cervix is thin :(

Soo.. title says it all. I'm not dilated but my cervix is thin. I have an ultrasound a week from today and they'll measure it again then. I am on medicine right now to stop my contractions and if it doesn't work they'll probably start giving me injections for her lungs. I have to drop half of my classes to try to keep myself stress free. I was really hoping to get in a bunch of school before the baby was here but it doesn't look like that is happening.

It really does stink. I was diagnosed at 20wks with Incompetent cervix and was put on strict bed rest with YDD. I had to have shots weekly and did the steroids at 24weeks. It is really hard to be limited with an LO. ODD was 9 months when I was on BR so that was awful having to watch others do everything for her and me.

Mama just keep strong it is all you can do.

Well.. I kind of told my doctor that bedrest is kind of stupid for me right now.. lol! With my husbands injury and having a 2 year old it's not possible for me no to do ANYTHING. My MIL helps a lot.. but still, I have to do some things. He just told me to take it easy and lay down when I can. I get contractions now whether I'm laying down or not, so I don't see the point of bedrest.
