Peri Update

Saw the peri today, and my cervix still looks about the same “at rest” but has a fair bit more funnelling when “under stress” (pushing on the fundus) so it’s continued off-work/modified bedrest for me. I’m absolutely fine with this, if that’s what we need to do for the babes. Heck, I’d hang upside down by my toes like a bat if necessary. The financials of it suck (no short-term disability, despite my best efforts to get it last year) but we’ll survive. And the peri actually wants me up a little more than before (shocking) so may have actual time to post rather than mostly just reading!

U/S confirms two girls (and I have photographic proof for their first dates…bwa ha ha) and they’re both around 750 grams (1 lb 10-11 oz) and right on target. 50th percentile for all of their measurements (heads, bellies, arms, legs, etc.)  So all that’s good.  A’s head-down, B’s breech, which is perfectly fine for now.  Both were little wiggleworms thanks to the OJ I had before my appointment (and nice heartbeats at 154 for A and 146 for B.)  And aren’t they cute?

Oh, and I’m about 90% sure that we have names.  But then there’s the other 10%…
