31 weeks | 3rd Trimester

I have officially been in the hospital for ONE MONTH! It really doesn't seem that long since I have had so many AMAZING visitors who come bearing lattes, magazines, movies, and dazzling personalities! I am so blessed/stoked/amazed/humbled/loved, and you guys are making me feel that way! 

I started this entry last night & erased most of it because things can change quickly around here. I just got back from my growth scan/cervical length check. Cervix is holding steady at 6mm, but as soon as we looked at my cervix, we noticed an issue. Baby A's cord is hanging down into my cervix. It can right itself, but it's a cause for concern. I'll get an IV soon in case anything should happen. If his water was to break & my cervix is open, his cord could prolapse & that could be fatal. THANKFULLY, none of my doctors want me to go home. Last week, there was talk of letting me go home, & Lord Jesus, thank You, I am so glad that didn't pan out. I'm a button away from calling my nurses if my water breaks, & they can have me in the OR in 10 minutes. 

In addition to the cord issue, Baby A is measuring small. He's in the 21st percentile (2lbs 14oz), which means he only gained 4oz in 2 weeks. He's not in any danger, but again, it's something to watch closely. His brother is measuring right on track at 3lbs 11oz. My nurse popped in after the ultrasound & I told her the news. She promptly told me to fatten up, & eat Cheetos & french fries. Josh is currently out getting Carl's Jr!

All of this to say, please keep us in your prayers. I'm scared, nervous, and thankful that I am in the safest place for myself & my boys. Dr. P kept warning me of how quickly things can change in a twin pregnancy. I rolled my eyes most of the time because I thought he was being a little dramatic, but oh man, he was right. Things change on a dime around here. 

Thank you again for the love & support we've gotten. Pray for our Jax & Jett!

  1. Girl, I am praying hard for you and those boys everyday. Twins are miracle babies (I know, I am one). You are rocking already. Keep those babies cooking. Hugs!! (I can't believe it's been a month already.)
