I started spotting last night. One week after the cerclage. I called the nurse on call and was told if it didn't stop within the hour to head to the ER. If it did to just come in to the office in the morning.

So I went into the office this morning. My doctor examined me and said it felt like my cervix intact but, felt heavy more like 28 weeks not 15. Great! So she sent me for an ultrasound. Baby looks great. She was moving everywhere. I could see everything so much more clearly then at 12 weeks. My cervix is measuring 3. Which I was always told anything above 3 is what we want. So it's good but, no room for shortening. It also showed my cerclage is still intact but, lower then it should be. Again not much room for shortening. Oh, and apparently I am already having contractions. I was having them during the ultrasound.

I then went back to the doctors to discuss. I am starting on progesterone shots this week. (They should arrive Thursday.) Luckily, my DH is an EMT and he can give me the shots. We did discuss doing another cerclage further up. For the moment we are going to start the shots. Hopefully, those will help. I go back in 3 weeks. We will discuss more if their is a lot of changes.

I am stressed. I always have complications. It just usually gets interesting around 18/20 weeks. I feel extremely guilty that I am basically doing nothing around the house. DD#1 missed a day of school today because I was held up in at the doctors for so long. Everyone says it's only kindergarten but, she still needs to be there. Sorry for my long vent ladies. I am just having a hard day.
