Tomorrow I will see the MFM group again (the high risk people). I won’t be having a cervical ultrasound, because at this point in the pregnancy, it is normal for the cervix to start to shorten. Knowing the length at this point offers no advantage in prevention of pre-term labor. I still think it would be nice to know how long it is just for peace of mind. Although it could go the opposite way too — it could just make me worry needlessly. The plan is to have an exam to check for softening and dilation (bad, bad words), both of which I do not want.
So keep your fingers crossed that we don’t hear the bad words tomorrow. I’ll let you know what we find out tomorrow!
