Appointment update - 19 weeks
Cervical shortening... in 4 weeks my cervix shortened from 4cm to 3.4cm. They said that since 3.4cm is still average they are not too worried about it, but expect my regular doctor to check cervical length every other week (or weekly).
BP - my BP was 135/84 which is definitely high for me. I have a blood pressure cuff, so keeping an eye on that. I did not have pre-E with the last pregnancy, but that was a singleton.
Pediatric cardiologist - noted tricuspid regurgitation in baby A, but thinks it is just from dehydration on my part and encouraged fluids... did not schedule any more tests for that
Anatomy scan - both are boys and both are measuring on schedule, both head down...
I am nervous about the cervical shortening, and plan to take it easy as much as I can. I start a new job (oh yes, you read that right) on Tuesday. But I really pushed myself too hard over the last 4 weeks, and I hope if I limit my exertion to time at work that things will be ok. I have an appointment in 2 weeks with my new OB. I hope it goes ok.
So that is all I've got... I know there is a bumpy road ahead, but hope things turn out ok.
My MFM didn't blame me for not buying a single thing for these babies. She knows that I know enough about what can go wrong and that there are real risks associated with this pregnancy. She also didn't tell me to stop working. I'll be curious what my new doc thinks about all this.
I know many of you ladies have dealt with these issues and would love your 2 cents.
