So for the 3rd time in a row (are we jinxed??) the city of Atlanta is under a flash flood watch on the day we have to go to the doctor. The rain is coming down in buckets, the roads are flooded, and traffic is a mess! But this time we were smart and left more than an hour and half before our appointment and we actually made it on time. Hooray!
All 3 babies look great! They estimated the weights at 1lb 10oz for Sarah, 1lb 14 oz for Jake, and 1lb 9oz for Luke. Usually Luke is the biggest baby but Jake passed him over the past month. Of course the doc did say these weights are only estimates so they could be off by a few ounces for any of the babies. But they are all in the 45th-65th percentile for growth so they are right on track. All 3 heart rates were in the 140's-150's. They measured my cervix and it was a little shorter than last time (3.5cm) but it is still long and closed. The doc was very pleased with my progress at 25 weeks. Also my blood pressure was great (118/80) so being off work and lounging around all day must agree with me! The pics we got today were not great so I'm not going to scan and post them.
Otherwise things are going well with the pregnancy. I can't really complain. Oh wait, yes I can complain...a lot! Actually not too much but being pregnant does get harder every day. My belly measures more than the average pregnant woman at full term. It feels so heavy and it weighs me down. I'm constantly out of breath. I'm not sleeping well either. And the heartburn is no fun! But at least I'm not throwing up anymore. Little victories! I am looking forward to hanging out with my sorority sisters this weekend. They are throwing me a shower and I can't wait!
Why I'm not stepping on the scale
