Sounds like great news! I HATE when they get you worked up over probably nothing! Can't wait to see baby's next pics! :)

Thank you! I'm so relieved... I was crying and freaking out all morning. It doesn't help that I'm all hormonal.

Understandable! My fundus measured 6 weeks ahead yesterday, so I'll be freaking over that until the US he ordered in 3 weeks. We just know too damn much these days!

Omg that sounds so scary. :(

Have any of you ladies taken Cytotec for reasons other than miscarriage or childbirth? My OB/GYN is having me take one tonight and one tomorrow for my saline sono and I didn't think to ask her what to expect. All she said was I would experience some cramping.

I haven't. Do you know what exactly she's using it for? You can't dilate, right, bc of your cerclage?

She says my cervix is very scarred and of course very short and the Cytotec will help loosen it up so she can get the catheter through.

Makes sense. I think it can cause spotting, especially irritating your cervix. I might wear a light flow pad. It's actual labeled use is to prevent stomach ulcers during NSAID therapy, but it can cause dilation, etc so that's why they use it.

Thank you! I guess that's mostly what I wanted to know, if I'd need a pad or not.
