Why do I need an acceptance speech, you might ask? Or you might not...which would be rather rude, actually.
Because I was accepted into the Pre Term Birth Prevention Program! I really am a mess!
I'm not officially in the program until I complete the orientation class, where we learn all about pre-term labor and the signs (ooooh, they're gonna love me. "I have that." "That happens to me all the time.") and then I'm in. It's pretty much all done over the phone, I'll have my very own perinatal nurse to talk to 24/7 and they'll continue to monitor me through 36 weeks. This means no more "don't pass Go, go straight to labor and delivery" that I get from the regular advice nurses. These God-sends will know my history, know what's going on with me and know what is a concern and what is not.
Not to mention, the program's rates of births prior to 35 weeks is about 3%, where the average population in my state is about 10%.
I'm positively giddy.
