Appointment Update

Strict bedrest works! Last week my cervix measured in at a frightening 1.5, today it was a 2.3. Looks like strict bedrest CAN lengthen your cervix. Thank goodness! Nice to know that these sore hips, weight gain, and depressed mood are in fact helping the situation. I am in the "normal zone" again, you don't know how happy that makes me!

I go back again in 8 days. The boys were gorgeous, while we were waiting to go in Aaden decided to make his presence very know. His knee or elbow was clearly sticking out right below my ribs, Elianna and I took turns feeling it. Noah is still breech and laying vertical and Aaden is horizontal right above Noah. So their heads are right next to each other. Elianna's look when she saw them on screen was priceless.

This morning sucked, our power was out for 2 hours. Bedrest with no power! All I could have for breakfast was cereal, so by the time my appointment hit I was starving. Oh well, I got two good hours of reading in. Amazing how much we rely on electricity.

I got my first state disability check today. Uh oh... major lifestyle changes need to be made. Ugh! This was the time we had planned to stick money away, I guess that is out the window, now we will be lucky if we can make ends meet. Only 5 more IVF #3 payments left, once that is paid off things will be a little better. IVF #2 was officially paid off last month. We applied for a mortgage modification a month or so ago, lets hope it works and soon!
