13 weeks left!

So I've been getting the feeling that people are worried about this pregnancy. Here's what I have to say about that.......RELAX!!! Seriously, I am not worried at all. I know that everyone is becoming more concerned b/c this is the point where we started to have serious issues with my pregnancy with Ethan however this pregnancy is completely opposite. I am 99% sure that I will not be having a baby over the next few weeks. How do I know that? I have been having the Fetal Fibronectin Test (FFN) done every 2 weeks starting at 24 weeks of pregnancy. The way this test works is if it's negative it's a 99.2% chance that I will not go into labor. If it's positive it just puts us on high alert that labor could happen. Only 16% of women who get a positive result end up going into  preterm labor. I have had 2 tests done and both have come up negative so there is a 99.2& chance that I WILL NOT go into labor between 26 and 28 weeks. I will have it done again at my next appt. I didn't really feel that anyone needed to know I was getting this test done but based on some conversations I've had I feel that maybe it would ease others tension to know that the test is coming up negative. I am posting this as a means to help ease anyone's worries. If I'm not worried no one else needs to be either. Whatever happens with this pregnancy I will take the cards that I am dealt and I will go with it. I don't want to be put in a position where I feel like I am constantly having to reassure anyone that everything is fine. So hopefully with this post I have put everyone's fears to rest and we can all just enjoy the next 13 weeks. I just don't want anyone to worry.
