21 Week Update

Thank you everyone for your support yesterday...my anxiety leading into the appt was overwhelming and didn't subside until I saw my trio.

All 3 babies are doing well with strong hb! They are growing normally, although do vary among weights and measurements. We are still confirmed 2 girls and 1 boy, which was a relief since we've already named them. (Names TBA, probably when they're born. :-) )

Baby A - girl - measuring 21 weeks, 14 oz
Baby B - boy - measuring 22 weeks, 1 lb (what a bruiser!)
Baby C - girl - measuring 20 weeks 4 days, 12 oz

As for my cervix, it is nice and long! It measured 5.8cm (holy cow!) so that really made my day. The sonographer said that sometimes a full bladder can magnify the cervix but I emptied it right before so we're confident in the measure. I go back every 2 weeks for cervical checks, and have another growth u/s scheduled for 8/4.

I'm so relieved the babies are doing well!

We haven't had extensive conversations about a goal timeline since I'm moving and changing drs in about 5 weeks, but triplets are generally considered full term at 32 weeks. My personal goal is to make it to October, which puts me at 33 1/2 + weeks. I've read varying stories about when trips have come, and my mom met a lady last week who went to 36 weeks and her trio had no NICU time...that's more the exception, but makes me think I can do it.

Thanks ladies!

Torie - I was shocked to see the cervical measurement and I think I cried. lol I had prepared myself for something significantly shorter, especially because I've read very few stories of lengths like that...I hope both of ours stay very long for a very long time! :-)
