A worrying appt - 26w4d

So I had an MFM appt yesterday and everything (with one unfortunately very important exception) looked great. The girls are growing great, right on track, lots of activity, still both head down, my weight gain is good, blood sugar is great, fluid levels wonderful... but my cervix has shortened. A little over 2 weeks ago it was measured at 3.8ish and now it's 2.6.

My friend had this problem while carrying both of her singletons. It is really great that you OB found this problem early on...

I am also pregnant with twins, but only 10w6d. My OB already told me that I should expect possible bedrest any time after 26 weeks. Now, this does not thrill me, but the more people I talk to, the more I hear it is very common.

I know you will do whatever you have to do to keep them inside as log as possible. So don't get too down about this. All we can do as mothers is our best !

I'm glad you received mostly good news, and hope the cervix stays put. Don't you love how drs say not to freak out when we all know that's the one thing we do best? ;-) I hope your pg continues going well and your girls bake much longer.

(((Andi))) I'm glad the girls are doing well but boo to your cervix. P&PT that it stays the same or even lengthens by your next appointment.
