I'm due August 9th with my first child, a girl. Emily Grace Barrett I got rear ended on May 12 and taken into the hospital. Emily was fine but at my next doctors appointment a week later I got sent back to the hospital because the nurse said I have a very short cervix, it was at a 1.5 , I got a shot of steroids in one side of my hip and was told to come back the next day for the other shot. The steroids were for Emily so her lungs could mature faster in case of an early delivery. I pray everyday that she will go the full 40. Has anyone anyone ever had this happen to them?
