28 weeks

Hello 3rd trimester! I am so happy to have made it this far. 28 weeks is is an important milestone. Survival rates increase to 90% at 28 weeks. According to the babies should weigh about  2 1/4 lbs. At my doctor's appointment on Tuesday, 27 weeks and 4 days they were both about 2 1/2 pounds so they are both still gaining weight at a good rate. Everything looks really good with the babies.  Their eyesight is still developing and their still adding more body fat to prepare for the outside world.

There was an issue discovered during ultrasound that was discovered some funneling and shortening of the cervix, so I was put on immediate modified bed rest, so no more work for me. I am also on 10 mg of Procardia 4 times a day to help prevent preterm labor.  I will be visiting the doctor every two weeks now.

The first 5 days of bed rest haven't been too bad, trying to keep myself on a schedule. I am sure the longer it goes the harder it will be. But anything to have healthy babies. My final goal is still 37 weeks and and no NICU time. But my next short term goal is 30 weeks.

Me at 28 weeks.
