High risk Appt

The high risk appt today was uneventful. :) I'm still measuring long and closed at about 4.15cm. Whew. But then again, I measured over 4 cm until the 23 week appt when I went down to .9cm. (I was over 4 at 18 weeks and then about 5 weeks later I had dropped over 3 cm, so...) The cerclage looks good as do the babies! We didn't measure them, but got to peek at them to check their stomachs (is this normal? I don't remember waiting to make sure they swallowed fluid at 15 weeks last time...) and their heart rates. Baby A was at 153bpm and Baby B was at 157bpm. Both were super active.

The weird thing is this time last time we found out we were having 2 boys. I think I got a peek... but I didn't want to, it was totally the angle of the ultrasound while we waited to see the stomach. But I'm keeping my lips sealed. We'll see if I'm right in over 20 weeks! Oh, and there's the fact that I don't really know how to read an ultrasound (it might take until my 15th kid to really understand all that I'm looking at...) so it's possible that I'm totally wrong and what I thought I was looking at was really a hand or the umbilical cord or something! :)

Yay for an excellent 15 weeks visit! :)
We're on Team Green but every time we have an ultrasound I think I see something! Of course, afterwards I start thinking it might've been a foot or an umbilical cord.
