Thanks for reassuring me ladies. I have been to wee now at least 4 times and it stings so bad Dont know what to do about it? Hope it stops asap. It's getting a bit much
Glad your stitch went well Jadey_fae. Drink plenty of water and hopefully the stinging will eventually fade.

Jadey - im so glad everything went well! When the catheter is inserted they fill a little balloon to hold it in place so it can irritate your peepee hole. Just try and drink loads of water - more diluted the pee the less it stings but it should settle down. I had had cramping and spotting for a few days - all totally normal.

Karen thats great about your cervix going back up in length!!

Congrats again Twinkle on V-day! Ive got 11 days to go!

AFM - I saw my consultant this morning - urine dipped which showed Leukocytes and Proteins so I have been prescribed antibiotics for a urine infection....that I didnt know I had lol.

Ive also to start injecting myself with Clexane twice a day which is a blood thinner...Really not looking forward to having to do this tonight!
Anyone else on bed rest doing the same??

My consultant has also arranged steroid injections for if/when I hit 24 weeks *touch wood* too which is reassuring.

Im back to see my consultant tomorrow for a scan to get my cervix and im very nervous. 3 weeks ago I only had 1.6cm in length left with funneling - ive been kind of pushing it to the back of my mind thinking ignorance is bliss but im terrified to see what (if anything) is left of my cervix.

Pink v days not far away from you now

Im wanting to ask my consultant about the blood thinners, I don't move all day long so I'm worrying about blood clots, I sometimes wear the compression stockings but I think blood thinners would be better

Ive got a few packs of compressions stockings today also...I figured though I was over 3 hours at the hosp this morning and ive been up and down for the bathroom so I'll put them on later tonight.

You should ask about the blood thinners though I think partly the reason I got them as my bmi is in the high 30's. To be fair I think id be ok without them as I cant seem to keep my legs still and I drink over 2 liters of water a day so Im at the bathroom a fair too. xx

Jadey, glad the stich went well! Take care of yourself!

Twinkle, congrats on V day!

Karen, that's so great that your cervix length increased!!

Good luck tomorrow Pinksparkle!!

I'd like to follow up with you ladies again for some advice. As I mentioned before, my cervical lengths have been the following:

14 weeks: a little over 4 cm
16 weeks: 3.7
18.1 weeks: 3.8 (I thought it was 4.1 but was confirmed at 3.8 today)
19.6 weeks: 3.3
today 20.5 : 3.1, but this time my cervix was funneling. It did not change when pressure was applied.

What do you ladies think? I couldn't speak to the MFM dr but the high risk nurse was not worried at all. I have purposely been taking it easy the past week and now I'm starting to get concerned at this trend. Does the funneling indicate a worse prognosis?

Thanks so much for your input, I really value all the knowledge that you ladies hold!

jadey - I had a catheter during my c-section (I never had a stitch), and it hurt so badly. I don't remember exactly how long it hurt because I had a ton of other pain to pay attention to, but I believe it was gone within 24-48 hours. I hope yours was put in after the spinal/epidural. Mine was put in before and omg that was SO painful, everything after that was easy.

Gwen - I would speak with a MFM doctor when you can. 3.1 is still a good length, but you shouldn't be funneling yet. At the very least, put yourself on modified bed rest for now if you can, just to be safe.

Pink_sparkle - I was on clexane in my last pregnancy when I was in hospital on bed rest. Good luck with the injections. I never done my own as a nurse was there to do them for me.
