Update!

The doctor went perfect today. I heard everything I wanted to hear (except the part when I realized I have now gained a total of 25 pounds).

My cervix has gotten longer! 2 weeks ago it was 37 mm. Today it measured 42 mm. No new restrictions.

Monster now weighs 2 pounds, 2 ounces. He is still breech. He seems very happy like that. The closer his head gets to my ribs, the more I want him to flip. Feet in your ribs is much more comfortable then a head in your ribs.

The ultrasound tech got some good profile pictures of monster today.



I go back to the perinat in 2 weeks. The dr said if I continue to measure long, when I hit 32 weeks they will stop the transvaginal ultrasounds! If I have contractions at that point, they will do an exam. After thinking about it, I think I'd rather have the ultrasounds. The exams hurt!
