My babies!
Today started off a little was the first day of school and I wasn't able to take my Princesses....BUT the day improved after my appointment!
No, I'm not off of bedrest (I've given up on that happening), but it was nothing but good news today. Here's a quick recap of the appointment:

* Cervical length: 3.84!! (started at 2.7 only 2 weeks ago)
* No funneling
* Baby L is getting big, weighing 2 lbs 8 oz!
* My weight is up 1.4 lbs from last week...I'd like to blame that on the yummy lunch my granny made for me before I left :-)

My Dr was very pleased with everything he saw and said I've been a "good girl" :-) I gotta tell ya, it feels good to see results...when you're on bedrest (and you have all the time in the world) you start wondering if it's really making a difference or just driving you crazy. I'll admit though, I did try to pout my way out of bedrest today. I begged, pleaded, batted my lashes...nothing! Dammit! Ah well, it was worth a try, right? He did say that I can at least take my girls to school now (since it's super close to home) as long as I'm not getting out and walking them in, so that was just icing on the cake! Seriously, you start appreciating all the little things once it's all taken away from you.
It's still "bed, bath, couch", but with a little more freedom. So even though I won't be running a marathon anytime soon, I'll take what I can get. (Yea, like I'd run a marathon anyway, ha!) 
I also don't have to go back for my next appointment until week after next, Sept 6th. *Fingers crossed for more good news*
And one last thing...send some baby turning vibes my way. Baby L has now decided that he wants to be breach! (Unacceptable mister, I don't do c-sections!) :-)  
That's all for now, TTYL!

Your girls are so cute! Congrats for them starting back to school and for you being allowed to drive them there.
Now about you. No C-sections, huh? Just choose a bikini with a higher waist and you should be fine.
Your Friend, m.
