... my living room! I am a very grateful and happy woman, surrounded by gifts from shower number one, watching my daughter run around, with the boys safe and sound.
A longer post is forthcoming, but for now, here is the update after my ultrasound.
Cervix: 1.8-2.2. Still almost exactly the same as it was at the last check, and less funneling this time. Keep up the good work, Cervix!
Baby A: 2 pounds, 4 ounces (!)
Baby B: 2 pounds, 1 ounce
Baby C: 2 pounds, 1 ounce
Yay babies! Their weights are all in the 30th - 50th percentiles for singletons, which is truly wonderful for triplets. I have not gained any weight in the last couple weeks, so it was very reassuring to see the boys are getting exactly what they need.
Dr. P was thrilled, which is not a word I would use to describe her very often, and said the boys look awesome, no signs of TTTS, and my cervix is stable. "Everything is in the green zone," she said. WOOT WOOT! Words I do not often hear that make me very happy. Dr. P is presenting at a Fetal Therapy conference out of the country next week, so I will be seeing two of her partners, Dr. W and Dr. K, both of whom I adore. Dr. K is quite the hugger/hand-holder which is obviously good for me. I told Dr. P I will not be in the hospital when she gets back and she said, "Maybe you'll walk right into your scheduled C-section." A girl can dream!
All of us know how quickly things can change, but for today, everything is good. I am at home, the boys are big and healthy, my contractions are not too intense and tomorrow marks 27 weeks, one week shy of our most important goal. Then onto 30 weeks (I still have a hard time imagining the "thirties") and then our scheduled C-section date of October 27th. Sounds like a great day to be born.
Your suggestions for stress-relief were all awesome! Thanks for the continued support and good thoughts. At the risk of tempting fate, I think they might be working. :)
