Little cervix, Little game

First things first here...

My cervix is incompetent. But we've already established that one. It is 2cm long (short) and funneled to the stitch. Gotta love Dr. F when he comes in after the ultrasound and says, "well, I'm sure glad that cerclage is there!" and then proceeds to send me home to freak out. Aaaaaand David is leaving right at this moment to work. All. Night. And leave me here. Not that I'm freaked or anything. Of course not. I'm the pillar of strength in this pregnancy (unlike my CERVIX!), unwavering in my belief that everything is going to be just fine. Don't mind me, I'll just sit here munching on my chocolate chip cookies. Because I can. Because I hardly gained anything again this week. Not to mention they taste good. To quote cookie monster:

C is for cookie, that's good enough for me!
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me!
C is for cookie, that's good enough for me!
OH, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C!

And because I am bored, here is something I got off of Loni's blog at clubmom. Someone (in this case Loni) picks a letter for you and you must come up with 10 significant things that start with that letter. Loni picked "L" for me (not C), so here goes nothing.

1. Laughter- I mean, who doesn't appreciate a good laugh (other than Simon Cowell)?

2. Love- It's all you need...

3. Lips- All the better to kiss you with, my dear! (Well, you know. David, that is.)

4. Listening- The world would be a lot better if people listened more and yapped less. To heed this proverb: Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

5. Life- What could be more significant, really? We only live once, after all.

6. Light- Without it, we'd be in the dark.

7. Loot- We could all use some more!

8. Lack- To lack something, even for a time, makes us appreciate when we don't lack.

9. Length- To my cervix, of course!

10. Liberty- Freedom from sin, from tyranny, from oppression, and from fear (and eventually from bedrest, or so I am told).

I'm sorry you are funneled to the stitch! But you are so far along, I know that you'll be fine.And I know of many cervix's that appear more incompetent and women end up being induced! I think chocolate chip cookies sound pretty good right now, and I am very jealous that you are eating them. I have none in the house....

I am sorry that your dr. is making you worry! Doesn't he know that's all you have to do when you are on bed rest? :)

Glad to hear that you are hanging in there.

Take care

Just remember you are twice my size "to the stitch"... and I made it... don't let it freak you out... tell your doctor that that sort of news is hard to bear, because you go home and dwell on it a lot and worry and such... remind your doctor that you are bed ridden and though it sounds easy, it allows for incredible amounts of introspection... and maybe you two can come up with something better...
It is my last week of school, grading finals and I can "e-visit" more often.. though I sure have you in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm sending that naughty cervix lots of strong vibes- sounds like you're in good spirits; know you've got a whole team of us on your side!!!

Arrrg. How horrible that you had to go home and worry worry worry. You are doing everything you can do. Remember that. No matter what happens, every second you hold on to her helps her grow and develop. So no matter what, even if she comes earlier, you are doing the best you can. You are great! Now I will proceed to send all my energy out there to help her stay in longer.

Naughty Dr F telling you things to make you worry!! You have come so far and you will keep on going :) ((hugs))

hang in there sweetheart! and enjoy those chocolate cookies! if I were closer (even though you don't know me...LOL) I would come and visit and bring you lots of chocolate. BIG HUGS from a former IC sufferer! :)

Hang in there, keep your spirits up, and eat more cookies!! :) I also highly recommend the Hershey triple chocolate brownies that come in a 4-pack box from Costco; maybe brownies aren't technically cookies, but they're close enough!
