Relief …Sweet (Temporary) Relief

Babies are fine, as far as the eye can see. I wanted to see them both moving—last time one was very, very still and that really scared me. So before this appointment I drank one of those sugary coffee drinks for insurance (the only time I have caffeine these days). My thought process: If the sugar didn’t wake them up, the caffeine would. Mission accomplished. They were both squirming around, thank goodness. To celebrate, I almost bought a five-pound bag of gummi bears during my post-doctor trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond, but I came to my senses.

The doctor measured them and pronounced them on target. My cervix is just under 4 centimeters, which is also still good. We did the final blood work for the integrated screen and we should have those results in about a week. All in all, a whirlwind, and my next appointment is in three weeks (technically, 19 days).

However, only eight days till the Level II ultrasound.

Glad to hear that everything is going well. I'm with you in that this year has to better than last year. Also, I love from your previous post that you count in the number of sleeps. R and I also do this, especially when we're away from each other.

So how far along are you now? You need a ticker, I can barely keep track of how far along my wife is. Everyday seems like an eternity. Hopefully once we see the heartbeat time will go a little faster again.
