I was put on bedrest over the weekend than taken off after a second ultrasound by a different doctor in a different clinic (they had a stronger ultrasound machine). I don't trust this other doctor. She treated the entire thing like it was no big deal. They thought my cervix was thinning at 19 weeks, it's a big deal.
I've continued having cramping and contractions (like full on hard uterus for more than 60 sec). They stop and go away with rest. I am scheduled for a second ultrasound in about a week to double check the curvix.
My daughter is 20 months. She needs to be picked up. I can change her on the ground with little problem, but she sleeps in a crib. She isn't huge (only about 25 lbs), but still. I ended up with cramping today after only sweeping and vacuuming (our apartment is around 900 sq ft). Obviously I need to take it easy.
I have no idea how though. My husband works from 9 am to around 8 pm. My MIL can come over and help out starting at about 4-4:30pm. But in that inbetween time, there is lunch, nap, snack (which we normally just hand her and let her play while eating). Playtime can be hard as she's extremely active and demanding.
I will be calling my doctor first thing tomorrow and letting her know what's going on. I really hope that all made sense.
