So my OB called to today to give me a hard time about being a trouble maker at the peri’s office. I explained … to the nurse… that I did not want to take steroids unless it was a real high risk that I was going to deliver this week and I don’t think I will. And the test won’t make me think otherwise. 15% chance of starting labor from a positive result is NOTHING. That is such a small percentage. My cervix is still up high and closed… even though it’s soft, funneling & only 1.6 cm thick or thin I should say. If I keep my butt on the couch I’ll be fine. I said I would take the silly swab test next week at my ob appointment and she said she would check with the doctor. 5 Minutes later she called back and said my OB wants to see me tomorrow, to check my cervix AGAIN and to take the FFN test. This won’t make me change my mind about the steroids right now but it might give everyone (myself included) a little ease to know I won’t be going into labor within the next 2 weeks. Because that’s what it’s going to come back…I won’t be going into labor… I won’t. These babies are not ready and they are not coming out right now. I will sit on the couch and not get up… I will! So tomorrow at 1:10 I’ll go to my Ob’s office and have the test. I guess THAT can’t hurt. But NO steroids! I’m going to keep these babies in for at least 7 more weeks… I will…I will!
I may have been suckered into the test but I’m not going to be suckered into taking steroids unless it’s REALLY time…. And right now is NOT the time. All I need to do is make it 5 more weeks before the steroids don’t do anything anyway… then they can’t pester me about them.
PRAY FOR FIVE MORE WEEKS…. ONLY 5 WEEKS… THAT’S NOTHING… RIGHT!!!
