Because that is all I can think about right now! Ever since yesterday, I have had very odd pains in my cervix. Now, I am getting more of these fun feelings. Thank goodness I have a regularly-scheduled appointment in the morning. The doctor told me that my long cervix is more telling than checking my dilation, but this weirdness makes me feel like there’s something going on down there. Hopefully, it is nothing and just discomfort caused by the contractions. I just want to go in tomorrow and hear that everything looks okay. I am going to forcefully request that they make sure I am not dilating- the nurse in the hospital didn’t seem very sure when she said it all “seems closed.” I don’t like the word “seems” in this context… I want to hear “closed tight like Fort Knox.” <--- I think that is going to be my new nickname for my cervix because it's very appropriate. Maybe my dear cervix will be inspired by this new, strong name and do it's job really well so I don't freak out. Let's hope, shall we?
I’ve been chilling out on the couch all day today, and it looks like more of the same for tomorrow. I haven’t been on my feet for more than 30 minutes at a time, and that was when I was taking a shower and blow drying my hair. I am curious to hear from the doctor if I need to keep up this modified bed rest or what’s going to be the deal from here on out. It would help if I could see the same doctor more than once- they were starting to rotate me this week between doctors, and I have seen an on-call doctor and spoken with my own doctor this week. Nothing like three chefs in the kitchen.
