Another L&D trip

Ok so I ended up with yet another trip to L&D. I lost my mucus plug last night and started having lots of pressure and cramping. I went in to be evulated and I am dialated to 1 and my cervix has shortened to 2.5cm and they would like it to be above a 3( I was a 4.6 on my last trip to the hospital with cramping). I am not on bedrest as of now since I am not contracting but I need to be resting as much as possible since being up and around is causing me alot of cramping. I have to follow up with my OB on Wednesday for my regular appt anyways so we can get this checked out then and see if things are the same. This little one is determined to give me gray hairs!

I agree....hope you can rest as much as possible!! May be a stupid question but once your cervix has shortened can it lengthen again??? Take care.

Oh my... I'm glad that you're not of official bedrest but I would act like I were! Make sure you take it easy! Have you ever had any preterm issues with any of your other kids?

I agree with what everyone else has said above! Rest as much as you can, not an easy feat when you have other kids around the home.

I know how hard it is to rest when you have other kids but try and get some help so you can rest as much as possible. Hopefully if you rest for a few weeks that will take care of it.
