Today was my day for the trek down to Anchorage to see my favorite doctor. Today I was once again reminded of how lucky I am to have been under her care for this pregnancy. Due to liability or insurance coverage, very few doctors would have performed a cerclage at 27 weeks. Baby E could have had a very different entrance to life without her expertise in performing this nontraditional cerclage. Besides simply being a great doctor, she's also just nice. For example, she has a 3D/4D ultrasound machine in her office, so every appointment she takes a peak at my munchkin. For fun, she's been trying to get me a face shot. After having feet and hands blocking the shot in previous weeks, she was finally successful!
Ha! Keep in mind that my little man has his face squished up against one of the walls. I think his nose looks huge in the last two picks! Too funny. Apparently, he keeps pressing further down towards my cervix with his head putting a lot of pressure on it. The bad news is that my stitch is definitely losing the battle and my cervix has shortened to 2 cm. Today I was sure I was going to have some bleeding after a sharp pain early in the day, but I'm holding on.
Keep baking Baby E!
