Firstly congrats bao... all 3 of us have boy/girl. How amazing is that!
Secondly, thank you everyone for all of the support, I dont think I would be coping so well without all the encouragement. I appreciate it so so much.
My scan today was good, with a few hiccups. The great news is that my cervix again measured 0.9cm so we didnt lose anymore length this week (I was convinced it was going to be less as ive had such uncomfortable vaginal pressure and cramps). But I was so excited that it wasnt worse. The few hiccups are that my funneling has widened which isnt great. We redid my fetal fibronctin (indicator for prem labour) and it had increased from 10 to 69... so my body is starting to gear up for labour (but shouldn't happen this week unless im even more unlucky) and there is amniotic fluid sludge which apparently means that there is some kind of infection now. This increases the risk of prem labour, rupturing my sons membranes and chorio (an infection that is dangerous for bubs and me)... it also puts my son more at risk of other complications but i want to discuss this further with the paed. I have been put on experimental antibiotics that apparently might help, im the 4th person they have tried this on at the womens however apparently its done over in the states commonly and helps 4 out of 5 cases (as long as they are treating the right bacteria - otherwise it does nothing).
So the plan now is 7 days of intravenous antibiotics and rescan on monday as long as im still cooking these precious darlings.
It was still good news though.
