**This post was written yesterday but I'm just getting around to posting it today! :)** Happy Monday! It’s been a great week! On Wednesday, Ben and I met with our new perinatologist that we were referred to by our doctor down in CA. My cervix was still stable and the baby looked perfect, as usual! The new doctor was super nice and so encouraging! He said that now I am practically a normal pregnant lady! I don’t even have to go back to see him again! Woohoo! No more checking my cervix, because he said that at this point, my cervix would be shortening anyways in preparation for birth, so there isn’t a need to monitor it! Now I just need to look out for signs of preterm labor just like any other pregnant lady would! I still need to take it easy and keep off my feet as much as possible. But I don’t have to be as strict as before! He said just not to go wild. haha I’ve still been having a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions, but again, normal. I am just supposed to go into Labor and Delivery to be monitored if I have more than 4-6 in an hour for a few hours in a row. Same as any other preggo at my stage in pregnancy! :)
It’s been so nice seeing friends and family now that we are back in WA! I love seeing everyone and getting to catch up with loved ones! I still can’t believe that we are back in Washington. Everything happened so suddenly and it’s just like a whirlwind!
