I had my first appointment with the consultant at the specialist fetal unit at St Thomas' who placed my cervical stitch 3 weeks ago today. He measured my cervix to check the length, but he said for some reason my cervix is really difficult to gauge, (something to do with the surgeries i had on it previously making the echo's harder to read??? Duh?) but he said he thought my cervical length was over 3cm, which is good. He also said not to really trust the other scans i've had at my usual hospital as my cervix is so unusual. He's said the next 3 weeks are really important, and that i should rest where ever possible to give my cervix the best chance of staying long. In 3 weeks i'll see him again and he's do a Fetal Fibroncetin test, which is a vaginal swab which can pretty accurately predict if you're going to go into preterm labour. I know it; all good that i'm being so well looked after, but i now feel so scared by the 3 weeks ahead. I;m planning pretty strict bed rest (well, sofa rest) and i know 3 weeks is not that long, but psychologically i just feel so scared i'll not get through it. God i wish i could fast forward time! He finished the appointment saying he thinks it will all be fine - but i just hat this limbo now and worry i'll just start feeling depressed and more frightened over the coming weeks. There are only so many films a girl can watch!!! Sorry - just needed to get it off my chest. Just feeling kind of frightened, even though i didn;t even get any real bad news today.
