Well I am 30 weeks this week and things are still going well. My cervix is long, the fetal fibronectin came back negative again, giving us a pretty comfortable guarantee of not delivering in the next two weeks and my BH’s are minimal. The baby is measuring very big but they have assured me his is fine and I am fine. Now my vagina might be a different story if we make it full term and he turns out to be a 9-10 pounder but no need to worry about that yet.
My nerves are getting better. I wake up several times a night to drink a glass of water for fear that the one or two BH’s I feel are actually contractions but after I drink the water, I feel nothing until I get up in the morning. Once we hit 32 I may breathe a little easier but once we hit 34 I will feel much better.
On a side note, we got some really good 3D photos of the kid yesterday. (I would post a shot but I can’t seem to scan u/s photos correctly as they all end up with a bad glare so if anyone has any tips, please feel free to share.) He fell asleep right before I went in and was in the perfect position for a photo opp. The tech was great as she spent several minutes getting me the best shot possible. She had no obligation to do so as I wasn’t there for a photo session but it was nice she did it. He now looks like a real baby. His eyes, nose and lips are totally distinguishable and he looks like my husband. Hopefully he will get my blue eyes :-).
