What's that saying? The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry....well, that seems to be my life story. Yesterday, the cerclage was put in with some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the perinatologist feels that she got a good stitch, but my cervix was very short and already 1cm dilated. I'm only 12.5 pg and 1cm dilated!!! This is insane!!! My husband saw her after surgery (I was still out of it) and she sounded confident, but put me on strict bedrest. I'm not sure exactly what that means and I have a call into the dr. For now, I'm assuming it means only get out of bed for potty breaks and to stay laying down except to eat and such. So, there goes my optimism right out the door. This is going to be a long, hard battle.
