4 years ago tomorrow I went to the doctor for a regular high-risk ultrasound. I had been feeling something in my stomach, but I thought it was just the baby moving around. I had no idea those were contractions that I had been feeling.
When they started the ultrasound, they realized my cervix was barely .75 centimeters (it should have been about 4 centimeters). The dr came in to talk to me. He asked me if I was still working. I said yes. He said "Not any more." He called my OB and a nurse wheeled me over to the hospital.
We had no idea about the roller coaster ride we were about to take.
