How many doctors does it take to find 1 cervix...

Give up?  Evidently today it took 3.  I guess my cervix was hiding and just didn't want to come and join the party.  Eventually it was found (after 25 minutes of poking and prodding, ouch!) and it was looking good.  No considerable change from 2 weeks ago and all was well.  After "bearing down" 3 times for 30 seconds each time, the change wasn't much.  So, we're good to go.

The tech was great!  When she saw how much Samantha had grown, she switched to the 3D/4D scan.  Of course, little stinker kept her hands in front of her face and would punch the tech every time she tried to get her to move.  We didn't get any pictures of her face, but I did get to see 5 perfectly chubby little fingers on her hand.  She said next appointment (2 weeks from now) we will try again and see how she does.

I was given the goal of 26 weeks today!  If we can get to 26 weeks without any cervical changes, the odds of pprom in this pregnancy drops to 3%.  So, that's less than 3 weeks away.  :)
