I had my 14 week appt with my OB (first official appt with her, we had an ultrasound at 9 weeks to confirm).
The plan is as follows:
At the 14 week appt, she performed the fetal fibronectin swab (she said this generally isn't accurate until about 24 weeks + but wants to start them now in hopes that if one comes up positive that I can be put on bedrest immediately). Every 2 weeks this will be repeated.
In 3 weeks, I am going to an MFM to have the measurements done, sex determined and to have my first cervical measurements done (yay! we get to find out before xmas!) This U/S will be repeated on an opposite two week schedule from the FFN test. So I will either be at the OB or the MFM every two weeks.
Starting at 18 weeks, we will start the 17p shots once a week (she said I didn't exactly fit the category of women that they do this in but it may help? not sure exactly what that means since DS was born 10 weeks early with 3 weeks of premature labor leading to that point).
At any point, if my cervix starts to change, I will have to get a cerclage.
Starting at 30 weeks, I will be seeing her EVERY week.
We are anxious/nervous about #2 but I feel very optimistic about our plan and I'm going to try to relax as much as possible.
It's really crazy to think 16 weeks from now, we could be in the hospital having #2. I know, I know. I can't think like that and I'm really trying not to, but it is a very humbling thought. I never realized just how fast little ones can be welcomed into this world. I'm praying for the best.
