That is said with an Irish brogue.
I went in yesterday (4/21/11) for a scheduled monthly ob appt. And ultrasound.
Got the us first, and I pretty much knew something was up immediately. The tech wasn’t chipper and talkative. After 20 seconds and seeing her brow furrowed she said. “Have you been contracting?”
Me: a little, I have had a stomach bug.
Her: I have to stop right now- your cervix is funneling and I have to get the doctor.
Okay, maybe there was more, but idk. That was the gist of it.
,his is the readers digest version for those That don’t follow me on twitter (which btw is he beat way to keep up withme. LOL)
My cervix was 0.6
Like basically nothing. Nada. A push away from a toilet birth, and a likely demise.
I was rushed to the hospital, prepped for surgery and got it sewn shut. Apparently by the time they got in there the doc could see the bag of fluid.
I got a spinal and they tugged and pulled and managed to get a cerclage in. Not sure what type it is called, but he said That he sewed like around the cervix and then cinched it tight Like a purse.
All I k ow is that the spinal is wearing of, I am having bad cramps and contractions. Trebitiline sucks all the sleepiness my morphine pca is giving g me. The King is asleep.
Which is good bc he is on call starting 7am tomorrow until Tuesday and all his partners are out of town.
Murphy’s Law eh?
My mom is coming down
The silver lining is That my doc almost didnt get another US bc everything was PERFECT at the last appointment….but she wanted one more since I had an IUI.
