update...or going over your OB's head

Since my OB is so all about deferring to the perinatologist, I called the peri's office and told them the situation. I figured they'd tell me they couldn't make any diagnosis over the phone, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

The nurse got on the phone with me and I told her what I was measuring and that I'd had the cerclage done, but that my OB wouldn't go against the peri's initial ruling of complete bedrest.

She said that with a growth of nearly a centimeter and a cerclage in place, they would be comfortable putting me on modified bedrest.

By their chart, that would mean limited activity and two hours up, two hours laying down, two hours up, two hours down throughout the day. I am not even going to do that much, but it's nice to have the official go ahead!

I even did a little dance when I hung up the phone. No hopping, just tail shaking.

This means I can go to the movies!
