31 weeks + 1 day

First of all, I'm still sick. I'm feeling much better, but still have a runny nose and cough. I also get out of breath easy (which would happen anyway) and break out in a sweat from doing little tasks. I think my cold is on the way out though. I managed to sleep laying down last night, rather than sitting up, so that is a huge improvement. I kept waking up because my throat got so dry I couldn't hardly breath but I'm definitely on the mend. I expect by Thursday I should be all (or almost all) better, it generally takes me 2 weeks to get completely over a cold.

My two appointments this week went well. There were no issues with my OB, urine and BP are fine. They checked my cervical length again and it's sitting at 4.6cm so that is fantastic. MFM today and the babies were measuring right on track, A was estimated 3lbs and 15oz while B was estimated 3lbs and 12oz. A has a bigger belly and smaller head, while both are measuring long on their leg bones, so it sort of evened out. The measurements can be off 4oz or so, so obviously just an estimate, but they're sizes are great regardless. Baby B was head up on Tuesday, but had flipped to transverse sometime between then and today. Go figure. That one just can not hold still. So it's way up in my ribs again, which isn't helping my breathing issues I'm sure. A is still head up, but now rather than having B's face in it's face, it has B's butt. Siblings... It's very smooshed in there. They both had the hiccups, and were practice breathing, which is all great. The tech unexpectedly turned on the 3D scan for us and we actually got some partial face shots, so I was really excited about that! We hardly ever see Baby A's face, and have only one profile from around 14 weeks. So that was very neat!

I go back to my OB's office two weeks from last time, although my OB is out on vacation so I'll see another OB in there. Still, it shouldn't be a big deal. I see MFM in another 4 weeks at 35wks, assuming the babies are still baking, and that'll be our last scan with them. It's really hard to wrap my head around how close we're getting now! We're making progress on the bedroom repairs/switches, and should be ready to move furniture soon. After that we can get the baby stuff down from the attic, and start getting everything ready.

Here's a photo of each baby:
