33 weeks ♥

I had my 33 week ultrasound on Monday.

My cervix shortened from 2.6 cm to 1.9 cm in a week. They do not seem to incredibly worried about it, but I am staying in the hospital.

I am 2 cm dilated. I was 1 cm when they admitted me 7 weeks ago. This was the first time I was checked again for dilation.

I am 50% effaced. I know that is a change since being admitted, but was never told the percentage until this point.

The boys fluid levels are starting to show discordance. One baby has 18 units of fluid, and the other baby has 8 units. My specialist is going to check me in 10 days rather than 14 days to see if it has changed. So, I am drinking extra protein shakes with my meals to hopefully help it even out. If it gets unsafe for the babies, they will take them earlier than expected. I will see the specialist Monday, April 18th.

In the ultrasound, we could see that the boys have HAIR :) I was born with a head full of ... BLACK HAIR. Yes, so if my boys come out with black hair, they are really mine ;) My hair turned blonde a couple months later. Brandon was born with strawberry blonde hair, and had WHITE hair as a child. I am excited to see what our boys will look like!

I told my doctor today, the first thing I want to know when those baby boys come out is if they have Brandon's dimple in his chin :) I cannot imagine they would NOT have it, but I have wondered about it the entire pregnancy!

Thank you for all the prayers, we appreciate it more than you know ♥
