    So I had my latest appt with my maternal-fetal doctor yesterday. At the last appt I was too chicken for them to tell me what my cervix was measuring and I didn't want to stress myself out. Well, yesterday I thought I overheard the nurse and doctor talk about it, so I asked. 
    That's so awesome! And really put my mind at ease. It was never ever that long with the twins. At 12wks when our doctors first became concerned it was only measuring 3.5. And sometimes with pressure would go down further. Then at 22wks I had an emergency rescue cerclage put in because they didn't think it would hold until viability on it's own and I was put on hospital bed rest. It was 1.5 I think at that point and I was almost a fingertip dilated. Well, it did hold and I made it to 36wks. But after I had the babies, I asked (I quit letting them tell then because it would stress me out) and found out that around 28wks it shortened again to .9 and again around 32wks to .5. As soon as they cut my stitch out, I dilated  and had the babies a few days later. 
    But anyway. I'm just so excited that my cervix is that long at almost 20wks! 
    I asked if it was because I had the stitch put in so early this time, and he said no that most of the length is way above the stitch. Also, he pushed on my belly and it didn't shorten any. I just can't believe it. I've been almost afraid to cough to hard because of all we went through with the twins. 
    I just wanted to share because I'm so excited and just can't believe it. :D

    Great, I hope you won't have any cervix issues this time and you deliver a healthy baby full time. Did you find out what kind of baby are you having already?

    That is such fantastic news!!!!  I was SO SO worried about preterm labor with my subsequent pregnancies after my twins were born early.  Hopefully now you can sit back and enjoy being pregnant rather than thinking the worst!!  I am really happy for you!!

    We have our sealed envelope! :) But our reveal party is Saturday, so we won't know until then.

    But funny story:
    For about 2 hours yesterday I lost the envelope! I looked every where I could think. Chris was laughing his butt off too. I finally found it in the van thankfully. But I was stressing for a few hours! :lol:

    It really is such a relief. I think things are finally sinking in that we are having another baby.

    Oh Gina that is GREAT news. I'm so happy for you. Yea that is worth some celebrating right there. I'm so glad you asked and were able to put your mind at ease. I know it is always so scary to ask. Like do I really want to know or not. I'm glad you over heard them and it was great news. Hopefully the rest of the pg will be just as relaxing and uneventful.
