25 Week Update: The Good, The Bad (X-Post)
I had a growth scan and cervix check today, and I am happy to report that all 3 babies are growing normally. They weigh approximately 1lb 11 oz, 1lb 11oz and 1lb 10oz, and all other measurements and heart rates are within normal ranges. I'm glad that their measurements are closer to each other because they were a bit varied a month ago. I am so happy that they are doing well, I just hope they plan on staying in there for a while longer...
The bad news is that my cervix is not holding up. It is dilating already (not sure how much because my brain is mush right now) and shrinking/funneling. The sonographer took a lot of measurements and I knew right away by looking at it that it had shrunk and begun opening...she even did a t/v u/s to get a clearer picture. The physician on duty prescribed bed rest, but I've already been on bed rest and not sure how much less I can do. I literally go from bed to the couch every day, kick my feet up and only get up to go to the bathroom or eat. I don't run errands and my belly is too big to drive so I've been bound to the house for almost 8 weeks. I'm just so confused and heartbroken. I have an appt with my dr tomorrow morning to discuss everything and figure out what to do.
The crappiest part is that I'm supposed to move in 10 days...I've been staying at my mom's house in Northern CA while DH gets our house packed out in HI. He gets here next Wednesday (haven't seen him in 2 months) and we're supposed to make the drive down to Southern CA, get our house set up and settled for the triplets' arrival. I don't know what I'll do if I'm stuck up here indefinitely until after these babies are born. DH has to report to his new ship and attend school so it's not like he can just stay here with me if I can't make the move.
I was supposed to take belly pics today but I'm just not in the mood. I'm so sad...everything just seemed to be going so well and now this curveball. I know that people get put on bed rest to help with this kind of thing, but I've already been on it and it hasn't prevented this from happening so far.
