17 week Update

Sorry, have been MIA! Things are okay here. I did go see the dietitian last week... it was helpful to confirm what all we already knew about eating well, along with some advice about how many calories (and carbs) I need. Monitoring wise, I think I am doing well... there are occasional spikes in the reading, but I am figuring out what is spiking up the readings... so I know better what to control next time.

We had our first cervix check on Friday too! The heartbeats were at 145 and 151 bpm! Both the babies have grown so much! Cervix looked good too (3.4... they like to see above 3 and anything below 2.5'ish is a concern)! I have my OB appointment on next Tuesday (Nov 10) followed by the next cervix check on Friday (Nov 13).

I think I have felt the babies move in the last couple of weeks (starting @ end of 14w)... it's more and more convincing, since it has repeated so many times and is at the exact same locations. As per the u/s technician, the baby on the left is more superficially located... and that is the baby I have felt move more! :)


  1. Thanks for the "heads up" on JC Penny sale. So glad all is going well with you and your twins. I need to get my cervix checked too. Enjoy those flutters...I am so ready to feel a kick :)

  2. Glad things are going so well! The movement is the greatest and as it becomes more pronounced that you can share it with hubby, it is perfect.

    Hope you are doing alright with all the pricking. I was thinking of you last night when I just couldn't get enough to eat and I didn't want anything remotely healthy. I pray that things continue to go so smoothly with the diet and the babies.

    Keep on trucking with a peaceful pregnancy until next time you update!

  3. Glad to hear things are plugging along!

  4. Good to hear from you again. I'm glad to hear that things with you and the babies are going good, take care!
