Last Cervicial Length Check and Growth Scan

Today was my last cervical length check. I seem to be holding steady; the length was a little lower 1.3 but no funneling or dilating. I don't have to go back for anymore checks now. My OB will need to do pelvic exams to check how soft my cervix is and see if I am dilating.

I'm a little nervous to not get an update each week but my ultrasound tech reminded me that I have been holding steady for so long that they don't think I will have any issues for a while.

We also did an ultrasound to check the growth of each girl. Each girl's fluid level was still looking good. We saw the girls kicking and punching each other. It is so neat to see how thin the membrane is that separates them so they can feel each other. They like to be real close to one another.

Addison is weighing 1 pound 4 ounces and Riley is our big girl at 1 pound 6 ounces. This week is another big growth week so they should put on some more weight here soon. I will try to take some pictures of the ultrasound pictures because I don't have a working scanner and get them posted.

I'm very happy to hit the first milestone of 24 weeks where babies have the first chance at viability. Of course I want to go another 10 to 12 weeks at least and 14 weeks to make to my scheduled induction.


  1. That is really good news! Just pay attention to those contractions . . . always better to be safe and get checked! Congratulations on hitting a major milestone. - Tkeys

  2. Yeah. Crgrats on Making it to 24 weeks. I can't wait to see the little girls. 37 weeks here you come. I say you will make it that far. I know the bedrest part must suck but it's keeping you and the amazing little girls healthy. :) I wish you all the best. you and Jesse are going to be amazing parents and your girls will never want to leave home :)
