It's pretty funny how many people are surprised that I haven't delivered yet. Dr. H walked in the exam room today and said "You're still pregnant? Are you trying to break a record or something?"
But of course he's thrilled that we made it this far. Despite that, though, he still wants me to take it easy for the next 2 weeks until he takes the cerclage out. He figures since we made it to this point, might as well keep on truckin'!
Dr. H doesn't think Landon is breech. Yay! He just thinks he's lying at an angle - so his head isn't in my pelvis. And that totally makes sense, based on what I've been feeling. I'm thinking that it's probably a good thing Landon's head (or any other body part, for that matter) isn't putting any pressure on my cervix. I've been wondering why I haven't felt much pressure lately, so now I know!
If Landon's head doesn't move by some chance, then I'll need a c-section. But Dr. H said there's still time!
The biggest issue at this point is the contractions. Yesterday I counted over 50, and that's not including the 2 hours I was at church. Pretty crazy! Dr. H said once again that I can take ibuprofen (which I haven't tried yet), but that still makes me nervous. So he said to try taking 2 Procardia pills every now and then to see if that helps. But that also makes me nervous because it drops my blood pressure. So I think I'll wait until I'm not home alone to try that one. He also gave me a prescription for progesterone in case I wanted to see if that helped with the contractions. Ah. Enough with the pills already!
I already have my appointment scheduled to have the cerclage taken out in 2 weeks. Woo hoo! I am going back next week too, though.
14 days left, baby. So excited!
