VIABILITY!!! We have hit one more of the many milestones during pregnancy. This means that if something were to happen and this baby decided to enter the world, doctors would do whatever they could for a positive outcome. Although, we're hoping he/she decides to stay in a lot longer! :-)
While this has been a completely uneventful/normal pregnancy, today changed that. I was feeling consistent movements (and strong ones!) Thursday through Sunday night. Yesterday, I felt just a couple, soft movement and had pinching-like pain on my left side off and on. I attributed the pain to ligaments stretching, but I woke up this morning and had brown spotting so I called my doctor. After a heartbeat check (152) and cervical length check (3.6cm), the baby is fine, but I am now off work for the rest of the week! Thankfully, I can check my work email and voicemail to stay connected and busy doing something. It will all be worth it to know that this baby is okay.
The doctor also mentioned that I am measuring a little big. I didn't ask how big...guess I don't want to know. :-) I head back to the doctor on Monday for my regular appointment and glucose test, and they'll re-check the cervical length then. For now, I'm just praying that the baby continues to do well and stays put! Any prayers would be appreciated.
