It always impresses me how perceptive you are in regards to feeling hiccup. There's no way I could take a guess where my placenta was based on baby's movement! I am lucky I can finally tell between my intestines and baby.

Yes, that's true. I use my sling for long periods of wearing when baby is small, then use it only for quick/shorter wearing times when they're older/bigger. Having only one shoulder in use makes for more pull on your body. But it's no problem until they hit 20lbs or so.

I watched a lot of videos, and tried out a bunch of different carries... but I just couldn't get comfortable using the wrap. I still think it's lot to do with the length of my wrap - it's really very long.

I wouldn't have guessed it based on Hiccup's movements alone - well, maybe at this point, but not weeks ago. But I thought I heard it there on doppler at a prenatal, and then the tech told me where it was at the u/s, so now it's obvious along with his movements, kwim?

Cerclage is in! During the last week, my cervix shortened from 5.5 down to 4.75, so doc was definitely glad to put it in! I'm relieved now that its over.

Spotting has stopped and only an occasional cramp or contraction (I was contracting 1-2 times daily randomly before surgery. Doc gave me meds to stop it while I healed from surgery and said we'd readdress if they continue into next week).

So far she's holding on and while I've been on bed rest since Tuesday I managed to crochet her first baby blanket. I'll post pics tomorrow in daylight (our house has awful yellow light).

Now, if only I could convince DH that I am not an invalid and I CAN cook a meal or get my own drink --- the DOC said light duty (no lifting or vacuuming and to not be on my feet/walking for long periods) not to be on complete bed rest for weeks

I'm so glad the Dr was vigilant and did it right away when shortening started! for many, many, many weeks of no-news to come!
I think it's cute that your DH is so overly concerned - although I can definitely see how that would get annoying after a while!

The surgery was scheduled before the shortening started, so we were both glad he trusted my instincts and agreed todo it preventatively rather than as a rescue situation!

And DH won't let me walk without holding his hand outside the house, haha. I bet if i let go for more than a couple steps he'd pick me up and carry me.

I remember that it was scheduled, I'm just still really glad that this Dr is being so vigilant and watchful about things

I can totally picture that!

Marie - Glad the cerclage procedure went well and that you're able to be up & about a bit now. I was on BR for 1 weekend when I was pg with my DD and it about drove me nuts to sit and do nothing. I give props to any of those mamas who have to do it for longer than a weekend.

Elena - I too am impressed you can tel where your placenta is! I only know mine is anterior, but I have no idea how high or low. I feel the jabs about the same all over the place these days.

AFM - Hanging in there. My next appt with MFM is the day after Christmas. I am now worrying that the little lady has the cord around her neck. I was looking more closely at our 3D photos from my appt on Wed and I swear I can see it wrapped around there. Ugh. Keeping busy this weekend baking and making Christmas goodies. I need to quit eating them as I make them! I'm going to make myself sick. Not sleeping well these days. I wake up multiple times at night to roll over because my hips ache. I tried sleeping propped up because I get heartburn from practically anything I eat, but that was an epic fail, too.

Like I said, I wouldn't be able to tell without having all ready "found" it with the doppler at the Dr's and then the tech at the u/s confirming it. I mean, I still couldn't pinpoint it, lol, but I know the general area where it is.
Makes sense that by that point baby would be big enough to be felt even through the placenta.

Try not to obsess about the cord - I know how hard it is not to keep looking at the pics, every angle, trying to dicipher things.
Even if the cord is on her neck, that doesn't mean around her neck, kwim? We could see Hiccup's cord going up his chest, across a part of his neck and over his shoulder, but it was obviously not around his neck and wasn't tightened.
When you have your appt, take the pic along and ask the Dr about it, ask him to check it and show you on the next u/s - shouldn't be a problem, and, really, should be something they're taking a peek at each time anyways I would think.

AFM: 24 weeks today - viability
