I'm supposed to be on a google ban, but took a break from it just to read a literature review to give myself some context. Thought this phrased it well: we are balancing the risks of a hostile intrauterine environment to the risks of prematurity. I have known friends who had incompetent cervix and I always hated the name because of incompetent. I think I may feel the same about hostile. I'd be better with compromised or something like that... Hostile sounds intentional.
And now I've got a work project in, so I can happily be distracted! I am so thankful for internet, VPN, printers and work that can be managed with a little flexibility from all involved remotely. I am pretty sure I'd go crazy if I was here with nothing to do!
