At the risk of sounding like a complete braggart, my cervix grew again. Today it measured at 2.8 cm - 3.2 cm. Again, the cervix is a dynamic muscle which changes over time and will likely shorten as time goes on, and we expect it to as the triplets' birth draws nearer. I can hardly believe it actually grew. (I was a bit afraid to blog about it but I knew there would be an email onslaught if I did not update.) Today showed stability which translates into more time at home with the family.
Today the babies (except B, who was being a bit lazy actually) showed off their breathing, even fluid, and good Doppler measurements. Dr. W insisted I get a flu shot and reminded me how bad it would be for me to get the flu while caring for three preemies or for them to get it at all. I did, and took comfort knowing that it grants the preemie babies some immunity from the flu after birth. I am sure I do not need to tell you how immature preemie babies' immune systems are, and how protection for them is critical.

As promised, I bring you the first ever edition of Ask Carrie! I get many questions in the comments section from anonymous readers and some of you who I know well. I thought I'd give you a chance to ask questions- really about anything. No need to make them fertility-related or about pregnancy unless you choose.
As a reminder, I will not reveal doctors' or hospital names, our fertility clinic or any other info like that on the blog. If I know you, I will be happy to talk with you on email, so leave me a way to contact you if you'd like.
Looking forward to reading and answering them! I am still writing my post about privacy, pictures and identifying information about our children. Cassandra, in her usual pesky, thought-provoking form gave me even more to consider so it will be delayed a bit.
Oh, did I mention: 2 DAYS UNTIL 28 WEEKS? No? Well it is less than 48 hours now!
