23 Weeks!!

Well, we're one week closer to breathing a little bit easier! I obviously want to make it way past 24 weeks, but the viability rate of the babies goes up so much more each day after 24 weeks, it's just one of the many milestones we'll celebrate!

We had an ultrasound yesterday and they did estimated weights on all four babies and to everyone's shock all four babies are estimate to be the exact same weight!!! 1 pound, 2 ounces!! Grow Babies Grow!!

My cervix is still hanging in there, but it did go down a little bit. My length last week was 4.5, this week it was 3.1. We will remeasure again next Monday and as long as it's not below 2.0, no cerclage!!! My doctor also said that it's okay that it's shortening because we know what's causing it, the contractions that I have the thirty minutes before and after my Procardia (the medicine to stop them.) They are not able to up that dose because it makes your blood pressure low and mine is already as low as it can be. If it was just shortening for no reason, he would be more concerned. He said we know what we're dealing with so we know how to deal with it! I feel very confident and very comfortable with any decisions he makes and agree with him on everything!! If it continues to decrease throughout the week, they will start me on another contraction preventing agent!

Pictures will be coming soon!!! Thanks for your continued support and prayers!!!

Congratulations on your quad pregnancy & getting to 23 weeks. I know when I got close to the 24th week, I felt so much relief. I will be following your blog & if ok, can I add you to my blog roll?
Like Jac, I went to Phoenix to have mine. I'm also orginally from "swampland".
Blessings to you,
