I’m so hoping today was my last vaginal ultrasound for a long time. Perhaps until we’re ready for baby number two and thus another IVF cycle. I’ll worry about that when the time comes though…
Today’s appointment went really well. My cervix is now measuring 1.3 cm compared to 1.4 cm three weeks ago, therefore my doctor is considering it stable, crediting the progesterone supplements. The plan now is for me to stay on the progesterone and monitor any changes in how I feel, meaning any signs of pre-term labor. My weekly cervical measurements will cease, as apparently it’s difficult to measure past this gestational age due to the size of the uterus, and also because baby girl is now viable. Emergency steroids would still be given if labor seems imminent before 37 weeks.
The only concern my doctor had today was baby’s position, still feet down. She said it’s possible for baby to change position until around 32 weeks, so I’ll probably have at least one more ultrasound to check her position before delivery. Has anyone else’s doctor commented on positioning this early? I guess I just assumed we had weeks yet for her to move and flip. Doctor did tell me not to panic yet, as there are ways for them to turn the baby. (That sounds fun!)
All in all, a good appointment. I did get a few more pictures of baby girl, I’ll post tonight if I remember. My next appointment is my regular 28 week checkup on March 10th for my glucose screening.
