My situation

I’m okay. Thanks so much for the sweet and concerned messages.

My cervix is still long. We’re now 3.12 to 3.37, which Dr. K says is fine. Before we wanted above 3, but now the magic number is 2.5. She offered to let me make my next appointment for whenever I wanted – I assumed this morning would be pushing it a bit and said I thought we’d try two weeks again for the next measurement. We’ll see if I can handle waiting that long. She also gave us the number of someone who could do couple’s childbirth classes because I don’t want to be in a class with lots of people (thanks for that advice – I think it came from Aurelia?). I figure I’ll hold onto that too scared to call for at least the next month.

And of course we’re on the watch for contractions.

One of my advisers was extremely supportive about my putting off the job market decision, the other, not so much. Not opposed to my decision. But somewhat condescending.

  1. Bleh adviser sucks. But she can go jump in a lake.
    Sorry you can’t drown your sorrows for a while longer.

  2. The same non-supportive advisor again? I’m sorry. Don’t listen to her. Putting the job search off sounds quite reasonable to me, and in the end, you will have to be happy with the decision, not her.
    The cervix news sound good; I’m still speechless about Meg’s loss and I imagine it must be so much worse for you. Take care.

  3. I’m so glad to hear that your cervix is behaving and so is your uterus (no contractions). Have you been seeing your doctor every two weeks so far (sorry I haven’t been keeping up if this is obvious by your posts)?

    I agree that the condescending advisor needs to jump in a lake. She clearly doesn’t have a clue.

  4. Glad to hear that all is going well. Except, of course, your advisor. Any chance of getting rid of her? (and by that I mean switching to a different advisor, since I would never advocate anything, uh, illegal)

  5. Thanks all. Niobe, there’s no way in the world I could switch – it would be academic/career suicide. I wish. I would tell you all a long long story about this, but I can’t or shouldn’t….

  6. I can totally understand why a childbirth class would be difficult to think about, and attend. I hope you can find something private.

    I am so happy everything is still going well for you. I am pulling for you and this little guy harder than ever!
