Some good news (and big fat babies!)
Today we had our first post-cerclage doctor's appointment and it actually went well. Finally! I had a cervical check and so far the cerclage is doing its job. Everything is where it should be, above the stitch, and I actually gained some cervical length since before the procedure. Right before the cerclage I was measuring 1.1 - 1.3 cm and today I measured 1.7 cm. So that's good news. The other piece of good news was our babies. They are rock stars!! They all looked absolutely perfect and were super active during the ultrasound. Plus they are big and fat!! Each baby weighed in at 1 lb 2 oz even. The tech said she'd never had three babies all weigh the same at the same time. She also said that they were a great size for their gestation. I'm so proud of them! They are doing a good job (although I like to think I'm helping by giving them lots of ice cream to grow on). Of course, the ice cream is making ME grow too - I've gained 55 lbs so far - but it's totally worth it if it helps the babies. So after being out of the house for 7 hours (big day!) I'm back on the couch. Joe and I are happy right now - I hope this trend continues. We go back in a another 2 weeks to check the cervix again. Fingers crossed!
