23 week appt.

Well, we didn't have our favorite sono tech today :( But at least it wasn't the sono Nazi lady again. I told Dr. G that we only want to have Colleen - it seems nothing good ever happens when we have a different sono tech. Last time Jason wasn't with me b/c our ac went out and he was home with the repair guy - and today... there is apparently fluid in my cervix :( I don't like getting news that's not "perfect". The good news is that my cervix is still nice and long and hasn't shortened, and the fluid around the babies is still looking great. Dr. G seems to think that the fluid is just my mucus plug - not sure what this is or what it does as we have not been to our parenting/birthing class yet - but he said that for now it is nothing to worry about. If my cervix were shortening with the fluid - it would indicate dialation (which is no good at this point). Since the sono tech spent all of 5 minutes with us - she didn't take the time to get a good pic - so all the pics from today are fuzzy and no good- not even worth sharing :( She also didn't measure the babies - so not sure how much they weigh or how long they are - maybe next week. That's right, next week... since the babies will be technically viable in a few days, Dr. G wants to see us every week from now until the babies get here (which will hopefully be mid to late October). I gained about 4 pounds in the last two weeks and am up to 13 lbs! I have a feeling that I will start to gain a lot here in the next few months!

In other news... our little girl has decided to move into the head down position, while our little boy is still breech and has apparently discovered my ribs in the last two weeks - not real thrilled about that one. We went to Austin over the weekend to visit Memi and Gabe. Memi had her baby shower on Saturday, but we went and pampered ourselves with a nice and relaxing 90 minute prenatal massage before the shower. Can't wait to meet little Magnolia Elyse in about 6 weeks! We also got to visit with my parents and brothers down in Wimbo - haven't seen them in a while - so it was really great to see them. Their new house is coming along and looks really good - can't wait to see what it looks like when it's finished!

I don't have a belly pic from this week - but here's one from last week:

22 weeks (almost)

  1. I'm sorry you got the not so nice sono tech.:(
    No worries about the mucus plug. To be honest, the mucus plug is kind of a gross/weird subject haha.
    As long as there's a good amount of fluid around the babies and your cervix is still long, you're good! I do realize it's easy to worry when you don't get that "perfect" news, but it sounds like everything is good. Those weekly appointments/sonograms will probably keep your mind at ease.

    Let us know if you need anything!!
