*sigh. Oh ladies i hate when my mind wont shut up!
Monday i had my cramps/contractions. Called midwife. Got them stopped. Tiday was my 24 week appointmnt. She was able to find babys heartbeat which i was scared for. He stopped movingmonday (he is now moving cinstantly!!!) And i was scared she wouldnt find heartbeat!! Huge sigh whn i heard it. Unfortunitly went went from good to bad. Cervix is soft and starting to dialate. So she wanted us to go for ultraound to meassure cervix and check amnio levels. Asap. So we go in tomarrow. If everything is fine then she says i can stay with them.
But if its thinning then i have to trnsfer to an ob and put on medications and possibly bedrest. Yes i will do what i have to for cadan but im only 24 weeks! Its so early for preterm.
My midwife put me on pelvic rest (no prob there lol) but id go insane on bedrest so would my toddler.

Ugh i think cadan is trying to push his way out!! Tummy feels so tight when he moves like that..but at least he is moving.

I was 30wks when I had a growth scan and they could tell my cervix was already "thinning"
I'm not sure how long before that it had been

but I made it to 39wks 5 days
So try not to stress :)
I know easier said than done

I have several friends that had the same thing happen and with drugs and bedrest two of them actually ended up being late and one was born on his due date :) so try to to fret momma, it may not all be what you were hoping for but chances are everything will be fine :)

Heather, I wish I could help you feel better. If an ob can help more than the midwives though then it's the right choice. I ended up with a c section and still the midwives have been great.

hey rachel!! thanks for trying just over all worried i guess. Not so much the OB part but the medications and bed rest part. and the  whole he wants to come early! way way to early! but im trying to take it easy and not think about it....well as easy as i can when gwen wants to dance and sing and play!  someone gave her caffine pills this morning i swear! but its a great distraction until appointment time!
