I'm a bit late posting but had my 26 week check-up Monday.
Backstory is I have to travel 300 miles, one way, at the beginning of April for my sister's wedding. (sidenote: I'm a bridesmaid...I will look like a whale in that dress! Yikes! :LOL: ) I'll be 29 wks at that point and with my history of going into labor at 33 wks with DS1 while visiting the same area, Doc planned to do a cervical length check and FFN swab at 26 wks and have me come back and check again for changes at 28 wks depending on the results.
Anyway, so they did the swab 1st b/c the cervix check has to be internal u/s and can disturb stuff making the FFN results not reliable. Then did the u/s and my cervical length was over 5 cm...I can't recall exactly 5 or 5.5...either way very good. They want to see over 2 and start to get concerned below that. I'm pretty sure we checked during my pregnancy with DS2 at 24 wks and it was like 2 or 2.5 so over 5 was great. He decided to not even send off the FFN for results and we are going to decide if we should repeat the u/s at 28 wks depending on how I feel over the next 2 weeks. I also have to do the gestational diabetes test at 28 wks.
They did a quick abdominal u/s while I was in there to check h/b so I asked them to check if she was still, in fact, a she. Here's a pic:
Yep, definitely a little girl!
