LOL! No problem on having the wrong year. Hope everything is going okay for you! We aren't really on this forum anyways cause we visit in PP. Feel free to pop in on our thread in there if you ever have any questions since we were in your ladies' position last year! Congrats and good luck!

Well, from the 2 ultrasounds I had done, they've moved my due date to June 29 - but I'm not changing message boards this late! Of course, now BabyFit directs me to June from my start page, so it takes a few more clicks to get here....
I've been having cramping - some that feel like menstrual, a steady low-grade ache; some digestive, and some 30 second tightening (once on Saturday and twice on Sunday). They checked my cervix, to be sure, and it turns out the lower opening of my cervix is open a little, but the upper opening is still closed. They said that usually happens with women who've given birth vaginally before - but I haven't! I did have my cervix frozen (cryosurgery) 8 years ago, which might be the reason. They said 90% of the time, the lower one being open with the upper closed is not a problem, but they want it checked by ultrasound to determine the length (for effacement). So I have to do that tomorrow. The menstrual cramping could be perfectly normal, or could indicate a problem, so not much help there. If they think I'm a risk for early labor with all of this, they'll probably put me on bedrest. I'm already restricted from exercise due to one slightly high BP reading (they've all been okay since). And I'll find out in the next couple of days if my glucose test was okay or not.
Is there anything other than bedrest to do to help prevent premature labor? I know Dawn is our resident expert! I'll have to do some research.
Oops, I think I got the wrong year message board! Sorry!
