I have been high risk from the start since I have had type 1 diabetes for 16 years. My pregnancy has been going perfectly until my 28week appointment/ ultrasound yesterday. We found out LO is messuring at 4lbs which is big for 28 weeks, not a huge concern, we also found out my cervix has shortened to 2.0cm. My doctor mentioed starting steriod shots which I would be hospitalized for about 3 days, because of the diabetes but he never scheduled anything and I want to get started on them ASAP. I am also a bit concerned that they did not put me on bed rest, I work full time and I want to do everything possible to keep LO in there as long as I can.
I have an appointment today for an FFN and I plan to ask them to get me scheduled to go in for the steriod shots, hopefully this weekend, I feel that it is a sooner the better kind of thing, am I right?
I guess my questions are: If you had steriod shots how soon was your baby able to come home?
and do you think I should be concerned about not being on bed rest with a 2.0 CM cervix at 28 weeks?
I would appreciate any advice, I am stressing out and driving myself crazy!
