So, I was going into today's appointment very cautious but optimistic and am very pleased to tell you all that everything went GREAT! My cervix went from 1.8 last Monday, to 1.9 on Friday, to 2.0 today!!! We are definitely moving in the right direction! It gives me that needed push to continue to power through this bedrest - knowing that I am really doing everything I can to keep these babies cookin for as long as I can. The sono tech said that the fluid around the babies was excellent, and we even got to watch them practice their breathing -so cool! Baby A is still head down and Baby B continues to hang out in this sort of sideways position looking toward my back that doesn't look comfortable at all - but I did find out that it is his/her shoulder that is jabbing me. We really haven't had any good sono pics in a while, but we hit the jackpot today (well at least for Baby A)! He/She was perfectly positioned so that we could see his/her profile and the sono tech flipped it over to 3D/4D and we got to see what our precious little baby looks like - it was SOOOOO amazing! They didn't take any measurements today, but the babies should weigh about 2 1/2 lbs each and about 15 1/2 inches long! I have finally broken the 20 lb mark and am weighing in at 22 lbs! I'm really trying to put some fat on these babies so they can be nice and healthy when they are born (in about 9 weeks) - so if anyone has any delicious (or at least not horrible) high protein, high calorie recipes - send 'em my way!
I also had my glucose screening today - and it wasn't nearly as bad as some people make it out to be. It basically tasted like really sweet, flat orange soda. We should have the results back tomorrow, but I'm not too worried about it. I already feel like this week is going to fly by - maybe because I am really looking forward to seeing my mom and having my baby shower on Saturday! Well, I guess that's about it for now - be sure to check out the pics from today's sono!
