26 weeks

Well here I am, finally at 26 weeks! I had an appointment today with one of the peris that I love (there are 4 in the practice that I see). My cervix is still looking great at 4.5cm, which is really long. He asked when the last time I got measurements on the baby were and I slyly said I couldn't quite remember so I got a nice long growth ultrasound with measurements. Baby boy is now 1lb. 14oz. and is measuring a few days ahead. He also told me they really didn't need to see me for any more cervical checks but I told him Dr. K is on vacation and I really wanted to come back so he said that was fine and let me pick when I wanted to come in again, so I'll be back in 2 weeks for another check. At this point, I really wish I could just sit back and enjoy the rest of this pregnancy, since it's obviously totally different than my others and everything is going so well, but I still can't relax. He also took some 3D pictures of the face which was SO cool. I have to say that they are a little hard to make out, especially if you're not used to seeing 3D ultrasounds, but hopefully you can see his little face.

Ok, this one is a partial side view of his face and he is looking to the right. You can see his right eye and his lips pretty well and his nose is kind of covered by all of those blobs on the right of the picture.

This one is a full side profile where he is also looking to the right. You can also see his right eye and his lips and then his hand is right up on his face, covering his nose, and you can see 3 of his finger. Hope you can make it out!

On a side note, I really missed my girls this week and cried more than usual! I don't know what set me off, but I was sad a lot. In about 6 weeks it will be the twin's 1st birthday...I can't believe it's been that long. Where has the time gone?

  1. Sweet Jenell - This time IS different, and realizing that is bound to make you miss your girls.
    So glad you've made it this far and gotten such a wonderful report from the doctors!

    Big hugs, mama!

  3. Dear Rob & Jenell, Well, you've made it an important date!! As the girl's birthdays approaches, plan something special to honor them. Each year David & I do something on that day to remember our Sarah. The first few years we bought a bouquet of flowers and floated them out at Lover's Point. God never wastes a sorrow! I doubt very much we would have gotten involved with something like the CPC if Sarah had not been born. That little girl lived only an hour but God used her life to teach us so much about His value for human life. Sending love and continued prayers, Debbie

  6. Yeah Jenell & keep up the good work baby boy! I have to say that as my pg with Kannon progressed, my sense of loss when thinking about Dashiell intensified. Good for you for taking a leap of faith and getting the co-sleeper. We're rooting for you everyday and just know that your three girls are fiercely watching over their baby brother. (((HUGS)))

  10. I lost monoamniotic twins at 21 weeks in November of 2006; 11 months later had a perfectly healthy daughter, and four weeks ago lost a son at 26 weeks to stillbirth due to birthdefects. I am hoping to get pregnant again soon. I can't believe I had two stillbirths! What a nightmare! I already had a son before my first loss that was one year old so he really helped me. I hope you have a healthy and happy pregnancy!
