I'm Alive! 29 Weeks

Well, to cut to the chase, I did NOT get admitted to the hospital and the babies are still cooking! Yay!

We went back for our follow up appointment on the Monday after the big ordeal and things were definitely looking up. I was on the machine for about 30 minutes this time and had only a few, very minor contractions. It was pretty uneventful actually. Doc just said to keep on bedrest and continue with the medications until our next appointment in a week. I did just that!

So, now last Wednesday we had a growth scan, cervical length check and glucose test!

28w3d Growth Scan - OMG! These girls are just to DIE for!! I am soo excited to meet them it's all I can do to not secretly hope they arrive early. Baby B had flipped so she is now head down, which I had suspected because I seemed to be carrying them much lower and could breathe a lot better! During the scan we got to see her practice her breathing!!!! Such an adorable thing to witness...her little diaphragm moving up and down...so. cute.

Baby B was measuring 28w5d and 2lbs 8oz! I'm so proud of her. She's the one whose cord is attached at the side of the placenta and there was a slight worry in the beginning that she may have issues getting enough nutrition but she has really proved us wrong!

Baby A is still head down as she has been all along and continues to try and hide during every ultrasound! The ultrasound tech had to lay me flat on my back for a few minutes while she tried to get a better visual of her head. It worked! And she still has a huge head, measuring 30 weeks! Hahaha!!!

We got to see that she has hair! It was waving in the amniotic fluid. Who knows it she'll actually keep it once she comes out but it was adorable to see.

Baby A measured 29w3d and weighs approximately 2lbs 11oz.

The best thing about this scan was that they were both giving us great profile shots and the tech switched to 3D imaging. Ho-ly crap! it's so amazing!! I had never really been into the 3D images, I felt it was overkill and didn't really understand why someone would do it. But the tech didn't ask us, she just switched over and it was amazing. My babies are the cutest babies ever! One of the girls (A) was squished a bit cause she is so far down in my pelvis so she kinda looks like Sylvester Stallone in her picture, but she is still amazingly cute!

After our awesome scan she checked my cervix which grew slightly! So after meeting with my doctor he determined that I should keep doing what I've been doing, I don't need to take the meds unless I feel the contractions coming back (I have since started them again :/  ) and we will see how things are going next week.

Glucose - I passed!! It was quite a relief because that's the last thing I want to have to worry about with all the other stuff going on. They did see that my hemoglobin levels were at 11.7 and they should be at 12 or above so he has me taking an over the counter iron supplement every other day. Easy peasy.

So here are a few photos to end this post with! I'll do my best to keep a better log of things. :)
