So I was full expecting to be let off bedrest today to go back to work.

Not so. My cervix has shortened, and I've dialated to 2cm. On top of that I failed my gestational diabetes test (1hr) and have to go back for a 3 hr test in the morning. On top of that Brayden is measuring 32 weeks, not 30 weeks. So that points to a larger baby and possible GD as well.

And there is no way they are letting me off bed rest. I'm out of work "indefinitely" until after Brayden is born. BUT good news is he is still in there and baking! I'm still on the Procardia 3x a day (every 8 hrs). They didn't get me a progesterone shot yet because it hadn't came in yet even though they ordered it last week.

On a brighter note I'm going to get a 3d/4d ultrasound tonight! Talked hubby into it because I want to see his face!

Sorry about the bedrest. We will pray that he stays in there as long as he needs to be healthy. I hope you pass the 3 hour test. Bedrest will be hard enough without the special GD diet. Good Luck tomorrow. Let us know how it goes.

I'm so sorry. I was hoping you'd get better news.

My sister was dilated to 4 cm for a month before having her son 2 days late. Just giving you some hope.

Gah! I'm sorry momma! Fingers crossed for the 3 hr test! And I really hope the bedrest and meds stop the dialation for you.

I'm sorry to hear about not getting to go back to work- it's no fun on bedrest. As for the big baby- don't worry too much until after the 3 hour test. I passed the 1 hour test and am having a bigger baby. He's already measuring 31 weeks (last week when I was only 28 weeks). Are you or DH unusually tall? I'm a shrimp, 5'3, but DH is a whopping 6'4 and they are saying Junior might just be taking after Daddy!

Oh man, I'm sorry. I'm glad he's still baking away in there, I hope they can keep on top of your contractions.
