The OB-GYN just called and wants me to get back to the hospital off-Island. The results from the ultrasound yesterday were not good. The cervix has thinned to the point where the baby can arrive any day now. He and his colleagues were discussing a controversial procedure: putting a stitch in my cervix. The risk is that it could actually break my water. My cervix is currently at 5mm…which is really bad. It should be around 1.5 cm right now. The doc spoke with his former professor/mentor at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto about my case and I may even have to be flown there if I go into labour now.
Needless to say, they want me in hospital from here on in. I don’t know when I’ll be able to give you any updates, but hopefully Hubby can keep you informed via the blog, e-mail (and for some of you by phone). Hopefully next time you hear from us, Junior will still be “hanging in” there and will have not yet made his grand appearance! Honestly, I was totally NOT expecting this at all.
Love and hugs,
C and Juniorxoxo
P.S. Yes, that is an actual photo of me when I was in the hospital over the weekend…Minus the very poorly PhotoShopped sad face! Did you honestly think I’d let you see how dreadful I look on bed rest…and in a hospital gown!? 😉
