What a quote! But hey after last weekend we are happy we have made it one more and can have the goal of two more weeks. We had our 33 week appointment today and everything went good. We got a little worried because on Sunday night she was having 7-10 contractions an hour for a few hours, but the doctor told us to wait till our appointment as long as she was not in pain.
So we had an ultrasound, we have not had one since our 26 week appointment. It is always fun to see the girls, just getting a little tougher since they are getting so big. They both measured in at 4lbs. 11oz. There is a plus or minus of about 10%, so the smallest they would be would be like 4.5lbs. So that was GREAT to hear, they are actually big for twins (poor Allyson), they are actually measuring like a single baby.
We also got to see them breathing, which is really good they are developing their lungs, since that is such a worry of premature births. The really cool part was on Leah, you could tell that she has hair and quite a bit.
After the ultrasound we met with the doctor. He was a little concerned with her having contractions, but really happy with the babies size. He checked her cervix and she has dilated 1cm since last Tuesday, which while not bad, is not a good thing either. Either way, it basically solidified that bed rest and medication will be the recipe till the girls come for Allyson. After that is where the lovely comment came out, "If we get two weeks, I will feel lucky." Well Allyson is doing great and I am sure she will keep them in their as long as she possibly can, but when your body is measuring 40 weeks, it thinks it is time to go.
We welcome and thank everyone for their prayers, we really want the girls to be as healthy as possible. I will try to post the two profile pictures we got tomorrow.
