Today was one of those remarkable appointments where there was good news all around! They usually measure my cervix last, after the growth scan of the boys, but I begged them to do it first today since it would determine whether or not I would be admitted to the hospital. So they did it first and it was measuring 2.6 - 2.9! It has grown a whole 2-3 mm since Friday. Hooray for another week (or more) at home!
Dr. P reminded me that it can change quickly, so bring my bag again on Friday. I will be seen twice a week from now on which is awesome for a Wemberly like me. I kept asking her, "Do you think they'll survive?" to which she said, "Well, they aren't going to be born this week probably." I have never been able to get her to say, "YES! They are going to make it!" which my husband and mom remind me she could get sued for saying, but STILL. I would love some kind of firm reassurance from her, but she seems to take it a week at a time. I said, "I did get a negative fFN (which gets us to 26 weeks) on Friday, and we know 26 weeks is better than 24..." waiting for her to say, "You'll get past 26!" but she just said, "That is true." She is such an amazing doctor, and I truly love her conservative approach, except when it comes to my constant need for reassurance.
The boys look great. Their fluid remains even and adequate and there are still no signs of TTTS! Their weights were all very close to each other and are all in the 50th - 60th percentiles.
Baby A: 1 lb, 9 oz
Baby B: 1 lb, 7 oz
Baby C: 1 lb, 8 oz
= 4.5 lbs of baby inside of my belly!
The sonographer was the most efficient one I've seen! She was not only quick at getting all the required measurements, but stopped whenever we saw something cute to print pictures. She also did 4D on A and C (B was hiding his face behind A) which was amazing. They are filling out already!
I know these can be hard to distinguish, but here they are:
A with his arm curled up and hand by his face- it looks like he is flexing!
Here is C's little nose and mouth (no hole in his head, it is just the way 4D looks):
Very grateful for our healthy boys and slightly more cooperative cervix!
