28 weeks...woohoo!

Yeah Me! Made it to 28 weeks today...I am feeling very happy and very blessed. This has been a very difficult pregnancy for me (with stupid subchorionic hematoma), so it feels really great to be at the 28 week mark.

Hematoma couldn't be found on last scan which either means it is resolved, or just so thin that they couldn't find it with everything else going on in my uterus...but it isn't causing any more bleeding (thank goodness!!) and hasn't disrupted either placenta, so I am feeling good about where things are with it.

All seems well with my LO's...good growth, good fluid, all anatomy scans have looked great. (Expecting one of each flavor).

Both are head down!!

My cervix is still long and closed (4.3 cm)!!

And, I passed my 1-hour glucose test!!

Not too shabby for an "old" lady.;)

Sure, I have lots of aches, pains, swelling, nose bleeds, back pains, BH's, etc I could complain about, but right now I am trying to focus on the positive and celebrate how far I have come!!

Just thought I'd share.:icecream:

Congrats on all of the good news!! I've never had a c-section and don't know the "multiples protocall" but will they try to deliver vaginally since they're both head down or do they always make you have the c-section with multiples?

Thanks everyone!:)

@Krystal: It depends on your OB and the hospital. Luckily, my OB is open to a vaginal delivery for me, providing everything stays ok--no emergency issues or problems. Some OB's insist both LO's are presenting head down...others say as long as one is head down you are ok. I've been trying to prepare with hypnobabies....hopefully I will be ready!:)
