"Yes I would".
A conversation I never thought I would have-- but hey-- so, the ultrasound? all is well. the little wiggler is wiggling up a storm, all looks perfectly on schedule, all is good, measurements, heart rate, etc.... nothing scary happening with latent or active bleeds, or placenta misbehaving or anything else praise the gods/goddess/all-that-is.
So after the ultrasound, I met with doc #3, Dr. L-- a guy I liked pretty much right away- firm handshake, congratulated us as he walked in the room. After he confirmed that the ultrasound had shown nothing scary and no cause for the bleeding, I asked if he would please look at my cervix. So he did. A million capillaries on the surface, just aching to be disrupted. yay. who designed this?
so then, he said, I am not telling you not to have, [um, unaccustomed activities (sorry dad)], but after all you've been through to get to this point..... he trailed off... then he said something scary about having seen miscarriage under such circumstances a few times in his many years so....
the good news? cervix looks good and CLOSED, nice mucus plug (yay mucus plug!)
and now, with this huge bit of reassurance that all is well, I now can allow myself to celebrate SECOND TRIMESTER!
HOOORAY and HOT DIGGITY!!!
now please pardon me while I go google 13 week growth of the little being and revel a bit.
fear? you have a time out.
