Good thoughts please — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Good thoughts please

Went in for my routine cervical check and growth scan today and was told that my cervix had shortened to 0.9cm from 3.1cm two weeks ago. I was sent upstairs to labor and delivery and put on a monitor to check for contractions. Apparently my uterus is temperamental and they detected some small dynamic changes on the monitor. They put me on Procardia 4 times a day and I go back next Friday to get checked again. I'm home on modified bed rest until then but I'm seriously freaking out. The only bright spot is that the babies look incredible. Both about a pound and a half and growing exactly as they should. I need these babies to stay put awhile longer and will stand on my head if it means they'll stay in there longer! Any good thoughts you can send my and the babies' way would be much appreciated!
