Yes, you read that right. Today at the OB we set my appointment to have the cerclage stitch removed at 36 weeks & 2 days, on the 16th. That is exactly two weeks from today! She said that as long as my blood pressure stays the same I'll be off bed rest at that time! After SIXTEEN weeks! She also said that without that stich it could allow Finley to come that night or very soon after. Basically it's anyones guess. Dr C. said that some women have a little scar tissue after the stitch is removed which sometimes buys them a bit more time. Then there are the others who go into labor very soon following removal. I'm hoping for an extra week or so after it comes out but the thought that she could be here in two weeks is craaazy! At least give me a few days! lol. A lot of family members seem to think that it will happen right away. I on the other hand, feel like we'll be waiting a little longer. We shall see though!
As far as the blood pressure, there was no rise. It's stayed in the same range since 26 weeks (8 weeks ago) when it went up. Dr. C said today that it's still higher than she would like but it's not horrible. I also don't have any protein showing up which would indicate pre-eclampsia, so that's good news. Of course we hope for all to stay like this.
I go to the MFM (specialist) two days after the stitch is removed. He seemed to think he wasn't going to see me again at the last visit when I set up that appointment though. Whats up with that?! Have some faith! I do ;)
That's all for updates tonight!
