27w: Son of a Bitch!
It makes me wonder, I was having some discomfort yesterday that I dismissed as "growing pains." Should I have called to come in? I know it is a high-risk practice, and so they are used to people calling all the time, but I figured I would be in today so that we'd just see then. Now I am kind of kicking myself, what if I could have saved a few millimeters of my cervix? Too late now, of course.
My OB has set 30 weeks as the first goal, since at 30 weeks he expects that the boys will be big enough and strong enough to thrive after birth (of course after some time in the NICU). I told him I will do whatever he tells me to make it 30 weeks. He is putting me on stricter bedrest-- I had been allowed to go up and down the stairs a couple of times a day, and get up to make my own snacks or whatever, and now those privileges are gone. I am going to have to stay in bed all day everyday, getting up to use the toilet and shower, and that's it. That is going to be really tough! But it doesn't matter, I can do it, because it is only 3 weeks and it matters for the rest of my babies' lives.
Oh, the "good" news-- my cervix, while short, remains closed. So I am not about to drop these babies out of my uterus or anything. And, I finally gained some weight, thanks to Frostys, cheeseburgers, and dessert. I will now return to my regular eating, no gorging on fatty food for me!
Tomorrow (or whenever I am home), I will update about the glucose test, and whatever other news there is to share. Hopefully only good news from the OB.
