23 Weeks



Hello everyone! I'm still here and feeling o.k. I'm still uncomfortable.I guess it is to be expected.I did go to the doctor this Thursday and there is good and bad news. The good news is the babies are all really healthy still and they are getting really big. They've all grown to over a lb. in 2 weeks. 2 of the girls went from 12oz. to 1 lb. 1 oz, the other girl went from 13 oz. to 1 lb. 2 oz. and the big boy went from 15 oz. to 1 lb. 3 oz. We are very pleased with that. My blood pressure is still great! I am swelling quite a bit in my feet, ankles, toes, legs, fingers, face and nose! My doctor said that it is just water retention and it is to be expected, everyone gets it, it just multiplies with multiples. He is now concerned with the length of my cervix. It has shrunk over an inch in the past 2 weeks. For those of you who don't know...if it shrinks too far, I will go into labor. He mentioned the home monitoring kit that monitors for contractions. He said that he was going to talk to my specialist and they were going to make a decision about what happens next (monitoring kit, bed rest, etc...) by my next visit which is on Wednesday. I'll let you know then........stay tuned!
