wow.. this board is slow let's see if I get any response.
I am 41 pg with boy #5!!! I had 4 boys in my first marriage, my dh has no children at this time, we are super thrilled! Took us 13mnths and one loss to conceive this lo.
My boys are 15, 13, 12, and 11 so we are starting over.. it's scary and exciting.
Pregnancy is going very well but at my 24wk apt yesterday I was informed about monitoring 2x a week beginning, I think, at 32wks due to increase in stillborns in AMA, non-functioning placentas, etc. Yikes thanks for the additional scare and the additional pain of missing work, driving to and from apts, etc. Of course it is worth it to keep LO monitored but my goodness.
Ok, anyway the dr said studies have found after 10 years between deliveries the cervix performs more like a first time mother than a mother of X... Anyone else heard this and was this your experience? I was so looking forward to a relatively easy delivery as my previous deliveries did get progressively shorter.
