Still clueless!

Dr. K popped in to see me yesterday evening. He was here on a delivery and decided to pop in because he heard I had been admitted. Maybe this is normal practice for "good" doctors, but I haven't had a good one yet so I was thrilled to see him!

Basically his judgement is that, without the stitch, I would have already gone into labor and had these babies. Baby A's water is right at the stitch and itching to pop out, so yay for the cerclage that Ms. High Risk (Dr. R) told me not to get. :)

Dr. K is leaning toward keeping me here longer term like some of the other doctors.

Today Dr. K wasn't here, but I did meet with another Dr. K who is leaning toward this week and sending me home. See? I have no idea what's going on! They did the FFN today and it came back negative which makes me happy... but I still don't know where I am headed.

Tomorrow my Dr. K will be here again so I'm really hoping to get some definite answers. After all, he's the one who makes the decisions on my care, right? Right? (I'm really asking because I don't know!)

Still contraction free... "irritable" at times, but I don't even know what that means.

Basically, I still know a whole lot of nothing. But I am loving my nurses and knowing that there are people around here who really have my back.



At the most, I am 10 weeks away from meeting my babies!!!

I'm so happy for 28 weeks, praying for many, many more!!! You tell Baby A to enjoy her time- yes "her" time inside- my Baby A was in a hurry to come too, then wasn't so happy to be on the "other side" lol!!! Try to enjoy every minute as they will be here- healthy and screaming in less than 10 weeks!!!

Love ya!!!

Congratulations on making it to 28 weeks! My vote is that you stay put until the babies are born. If they try to kick you out ask for a Grand Rounds Meeting on your past history and what is happening now with the best of the high risk doctors giving their opinions. Use your Patient's Rights and ask for a Patient Advocate. Don't let the insurance company influence the doctors.

yay for 28w!!! I was a long term hospital mama (7w) but that got me to 27w5d, so no complaints. But it was tough. Let me know if you need something- I'd be happy to send you a care package!!

We were told the ffn test wasnt valid with cerclages, since the cerclage itself can throw off the result. have they discussed other tests with you? like fluid swabs?
