Every Mommy dreams of having healthy babies. And only now I realize what a blessing that is. I was very happy today to hear that the babies continue to grow and to be healthy, gaining about half a pound every 2 weeks. I am doing pretty well too. I thought I’ll get admitted because my cervix length has shorten to 1.7, but because it’s still closed and hard I guess I’m fine. Contractions are still light and not that many, yay! I am a little nervous because anytime things could change, but I am hopeful. Monday morning I’ll have my cervix checked again and we’ll go from there. I definitely need to stay off my feet and horizontal. I can’t believe how close we are to the big day that will change our lives forever! In my mind, getting to 28 weeks is absolutely mandatory, but every single day after that, will be a heavenly bonus! I do hope to go as far as possible, but I need to be realistic. I don’t have super powers, my body has limits and I am not the one in control, God is. He is the only one that knows the exact day and time that He has planned for our quads to arrive.
It’s funny how my big belly easily opens up conversations, no matter where I am. For me and my husband it feels so normal to be expecting quadruplets, we even forget that this might be a shock for anyone else. Sometimes it’s really fun to see how people react. Other times, not that much, especially when I am tired and I can’t even put 3 words together. But it has been a great experience for us. It does bother me when people that never give me a call, a txt or show any sort of interest in our family, come up with weird stories and gossips. I was expecting this actually, but I thought that my blog would keep everything clear for everyone. I mean, it’s me here, writing about my life, sharing this amazing experience with everyone. Oh well, as we all know, there are others out there that have nothing else better to do than come up with things that are not true.
Baby weights from today’s growth scan:
Baby A: 2 pounds, 6oz
Baby B: 2 pounds, 4oz
Baby C: 2 pounds, 7oz
Baby D: 2 pounds, 12oz
We are glad to know that all of them are within the normal range and we’re praying that they keep on going strong! I wish I could get a picture of all of them, to show you how crazy it looks in there, but they are too big and it’s very crowded inside my belly 🙂
27 weeks, 2 days.
