Happy 32 Weeks everyone!!
It has been a busy few days, so I'm going to get right to the meat of the story this week.
Friday: At the OB's office we rescanned the cervix, which had returned to its original length and it did not change at all. He pulled the Fetal Fibronectin test (will explain more below) and told us that at 31 weeks, our babies would be healthy if they were born today. Of course there would be time in the NICU, but that they would pull through. This lead to a good weekend!!
Monday: The Fetal Fibronectin test came back NEGATIVE!!! A negative means that there is a 96% chance that I will NOT go into labor in the next two weeks. More good news!
Today: Babies look great! They are 4lb 5oz and 4lb 4oz, so exciting! I am so glad they are keeping up with each other, and in fact they are both growing at a terrific rate. Cervix still looks great, and the Perinatologist told us that "we won", meaning we have gotten to the safe range. So with two doctors telling us that, it is an amazing feeling.
Here comes the two "Ouch" items:
1. Both babies are still breech. So since they will most likely end up doing a C-section. I'm cool with it, as long as our babies are safe!
2. Heparin. In order to keep my blood thin, they have to switch me from Lovenox (lasts a few days in your system) to full Heparin (which lasts about 12 hours) in case I go into labor. I will start that in 2 weeks. For all you RNs out there, I'll be on 10,000u SQ BID. OUCH and BRUISE!!
So all in all, Todd and I are basking in the happiness that we are getting to our goal in this 3 year adventure. It seems so scary to just enjoy what is happening, but I am getting there! Of course with each week I want one more week so badly :):).
Okay, and last but not least, you get to see big mama Wilson. Please don't laugh too hard! (Okay, you can laugh, I will laugh with you)
Love you all!
Stace, A & I
