Cervix is still closed and long (over 5 cm). From what I've read, this means that I very likely won't have any pre-term labor issues, not that I was really concerned about that. No wonder all of my other babies stayed in until 40+ weeks!
Everything is looking great with the babies still. Fluid levels are good, too. The one thing I need is for at least Baby A to turn. She is still breech and Baby B is still transverse up by my ribs. They still have some time to turn but the dr told me that usually by 30 weeks, they are in their final positions. Of course, they can still turn after that, it's just not as likely. That's only 4 weeks away. So we need some baby flipping vibes here!
Very good to hear!
I'm hoping your babies flip here soon!
There's lots of information online about trying to get your babies to flip [spinningbabies.com is usually highly recommended] if you want to start encouraging them. I've heard that about the flashlight too, and also having DH talk to them down low so they'll turn to his voice
Goodness, I can hardly walk. It doesn't sound fun to have my belly jiggled or to crawl on the floor. But I'll give a few things a try. I'd love for at least Baby A to flip. It would be ideal if they were both head down. But Baby A has been breech for as long as I can remember. 13 weeks at my NT scan. And Baby B has been transverse the whole time as well. They just seem to be really comfortable where they're at. I'm worried that they're running out of room, though. I'm almost in my 3rd trimester!
And Nia, the plan is to induce at 38 weeks if they're not here by then. But dh and I want to try for February 29, which would only be 2 days before then. We'll see. I'm hoping I don't need to be induced earlier for other reasons.
