July 18, 2012: 18 weeks
Today we did not have to check the anatomy of all the babies since they checked out to be perfect at our last appointment. The main purpose of today's visit was to check my cervix to make sure I had not started to dilate yet...and I haven't! The technician said my uterus was the size of someone who was around 28 weeks pregnant but looked really good.
They did a quick check of the heart beats and all checked out well. It is a continued sigh of relief at each appointment as we get more good news. I hope this pattern of good news continues through their birth and on afterwards!!!
We did talk about bed rest and luckily Dr. Shah agreed to allow me to stay at home an extra week. We are looking at the week of August 6th that I will be admitted. This of course could be changed and come earlier if things change by the time of my August 1st appointment.
He has completely changed his position and is now facing down--I think like they all change their position on a daily basis with all the craziness that I feel in there!!
She did not like the technician pushing on my belly for the ultrasound. I could feel her pushing against it and this picture shows her cute little feet doing just that!
