Long overdue Quad Mom update! 24 Week Pictures
The above pictures were taken at 24 weeks AND it ended up being my "maternity" shoot due to being on bed rest. It has been awhile since updating all of you so here it goes!
At 22 weeks, they measured my cervix and were not too happy with how short it had gotten (was measuring 3-4 everytime, which is good). This time it had shortened to 2.13 so they wanted to check it in a week (23 weeks). Went down to 1.5. They sent us to the hospital and had me monitored. They checked my cervix to see if it was dilated and I was at 1 cm. They said not to worry about it because I could stay that way for a long time. They started me on steroid injections for their little lungs. Had a few contractions during that time, but nothing major. I begged them to let me go home for my shower, I even said I'd turn myself back in the next day or that Monday. They ended up letting me go home for the shower and a week of bed rest at home. Then we went back in on 8/17 and it had shortened to 1.0. So off to the hospital we went and we will be here until the babies arrive. As of now I am 25 weeks and 5 days. The Dr said the next goal is 28 weeks and if we make it to that, the next goal is 32. They monitor babies heartbeats daily and make sure there aren't any changes with me. So far, so good. We continue to pray that they will not get in a hurry to arrive and will stay put for awhile. Babies last weights were: A= 1 lb 12 oz B= 1 lb 7 oz C= 1 lb 4 oz and D=1 lb 2 or 3 oz
