27 Weeks and An Update

This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby's brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don't bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle. http://www.babycenter.com/

Our periontologist appointment went well, I really love that doctor. We were in and out and she was again VERY pleased with how far we have come. My cervix is most definitely closed and I am measuring around a 1.3, so a little shorter, but still good. She will only be measuring the length of my cervix once more. At that point in pregnancy the length is no longer as important, but instead we will begin checking for dilation. If dilation is found it would then be hospital bedrest for me. She says the cerclage is doing its job and she couldn't ask for much more. She okayed me to go to my baby shower (as long as I was laying or sitting most of the time) and she thought the Drive-In movies was a great idea as long as I was lounging in the car or my chair. Noah and Aaden were posing well for pictures and we got great profile shots of each.

My husband surprised me with the Sims 3 using some bartending money he had been saving. Ahhhhhh so sweet and such a great waste of my time. I better get my playing time in because once these boys come, the game will be long gone. You should see what level I am on in Farm Town via Fac.ebook. Yes, you can tell I have way to much time on my hands.

Last Peri cervix measurement July 21st, along with a growth scan. One more week until our BIG GOAL!
