Appointment went... Meh, okay
 
Had my 34 week check up today. Doc isn't thrilled because I have lost 4lbs since my appt 2 weeks ago. I am definitely not trying to lose weight.. just have been pretty nauseated and have to choke down my food. So at this point I have a total gain of 17lbs.

I told him I have been feeling "off" and BH are getting more painful so he decided to check my cervix. I am 1 cm dialated. Not sure what percent effaced. He said I have about 1.5 cm of cervix left?

There is a little concern that my cerclage stitch could rip my cervix if there is too much strain on it so we will be checking again in 2 weeks and if need be, we will remove it but that could mean I could go into labor very quickly. But for now, it is holding.

But baby sounds good. He was moving all over. Still head down. HB was 135. He thinks he has passed the 5lb weight mark based on his size. BP and urine strip were good :)

Glad he's doing OK and things are still OK with you.

That's probably referring to shorting the 1.5cm left. It starts long and shortens towards the end and once it's done shortening it begins to dilate more. Huge hugs Hun, in 2 weeks you will be 36 weeks and it will be much less to worry about!

That's what I thought he meant, also. Yeah, I will definitely feel a lot better about it if things can remain calm for another 2 weeks. He was very reassuring--telling me that things are in a good spot and each week it just gets better and better towards the end. Staying positive. The ripping cervix thing freaks me out though! Ugh.

I don't think that's uncommon especially since this is your third. Huge hugs Hun!

Hope little one stays for another two weeks. Sounds like he is a nice weight :)

The 1.5 cm left he is referring to is effacement. The length of your cervix. 1.5 is almost 50% effaced I believe.

Hope things stay calm for at least another two weeks. Sounds like the doc is pretty at ease about it, so that's always good. Glad baby is doing good, too!

Hope you feel okay for the next couple of weeks and that nothing happens with the cerclage. Glad baby is doing great though :)

While I don't have your history of early labor, I can sympathize on feeling "off" and having tons of uncomfortable contractions. I have an appointment tomorrow and plan to mention it...

Anywho, glad baby boy is a nice healthy weight and I hope he stays put at least another 2 weeks for you!

I am glad that overall everything looked good for you. I don't blame you for being nervous about the cerclage but it sounds like they are going to monitor it closely.
