Today was yet another sigh of relief! My cervix is still long and closed! The heartbeats also continue to be strong ranging from the 140s to the 160s. Unfortunately measurements and weights were not taken today though. Those will all be taken at our next appointment on Tuesday, September 11th. We are really anxious to see how much weight they have gained. Multiples typically gain weight and grow as a single baby would until around 26 weeks. Then they start to grow at a slower pace than a single baby for the simple fact that they don't have as much room. I'm anxious to see if we can break this theory as well!! I'm really thinking 30 weeks might not be all that unrealistic after all!
Of course the only pictures I left with were of Giovanni. But they are pretty amazing pictures! Leighton has at least moved to the front a little more so that I was able to see him today but he was too active to get a picture of. Its about time he started to fend for some space in there!
