    Hi everyone,

    Firstly congrats bao... all 3 of us have boy/girl. How amazing is that!

    Secondly, thank you everyone for all of the support, I dont think I would be coping so well without all the encouragement. I appreciate it so so much.

    My scan today was good, with a few hiccups. The great news is that my cervix again measured 0.9cm so we didnt lose anymore length this week (I was convinced it was going to be less as ive had such uncomfortable vaginal pressure and cramps). But I was so excited that it wasnt worse. The few hiccups are that my funneling has widened which isnt great. We redid my fetal fibronctin (indicator for prem labour) and it had increased from 10 to 69... so my body is starting to gear up for labour (but shouldn't happen this week unless im even more unlucky) and there is amniotic fluid sludge which apparently means that there is some kind of infection now. This increases the risk of prem labour, rupturing my sons membranes and chorio (an infection that is dangerous for bubs and me)... it also puts my son more at risk of other complications but i want to discuss this further with the paed. I have been put on experimental antibiotics that apparently might help, im the 4th person they have tried this on at the womens however apparently its done over in the states commonly and helps 4 out of 5 cases (as long as they are treating the right bacteria - otherwise it does nothing).
    So the plan now is 7 days of intravenous antibiotics and rescan on monday as long as im still cooking these precious darlings.

    It was still good news though.

    S*** Megs, that sounds tough, sorry for my swearing. I'm very proud of you.Very happy to hear your news today about cervix and 4/5 chances of fighting infection is very good odds, and if it's not the right bug I'm sure they'll find the right abx. You sound like you're getting top care! It all sounds very positive about cervix staying till and once infection is delt with you'll be smooth sailing till way past 28.

    Geeze Megs !! You are being so strong for those bubs hang in there as you said your cervix isn't there yet its buying you some cooking time as for the infection I really hope it does clear up soon eat really healthy foods food really can help with things like that. you could even research foods that help fight infection there's so much information on it these days and from my experiences food plays a hugeee part in recovery with medical advancement these days your bubs have a good chance of survival so hang in there

    @Megsarama26 glad there was some good news if some bad too. Thinking of you and sending love, hugs and prayers to you and babies.
    @BaoLovesLudo congrats on your little boy and girl! Hoping the artery isn't too much of a problem.

    Goodness Megs, so proud of you for finding the positives of today, its so easy to be negative, so A+! Sounds like you are in the best care possible with lots of spexialists doing everything they can to keep those bubba's right where they are. I do hope you are feeling better mentally and coping ok with everything that life is throwing you. WHEN those little bubbas join the world, happy and healthy all this stress and worry will be for nothing. You're doing great megs

    Megs, I'm so glad your cervix stayed the same, at least you finally had some good news. Fingers crossed you're one of the 4/5th the ab's work for. Does being on iv ab's mean you're finally in hospital or is it still home on bed rest? Hang in there lovely you're doing incredibly well.

    Bao I was told with early onset SUA it can either be because the second artery never formed at all or it started to form and then something went wrong, like a blockage, too narrow etc. if it just never formed placenta function should be 100%, if it started forming and then stopped you might lose some placenta but if it happened early it's unlikely to be 1/2 as, like flower said, it compensates. I asked about a blockage in the remaining artery too and they said it doesn't happen in utero, there can be some problems during labour but they keep a very close eye on it and in all honesty depending on how small our bubs are we'll probably have to have a c-section anyway. I would love to have a go at labour (I'm terrified of it but still intrigued) but my obs has warned me that if bubs is small they don't cope well with labour and only one artery adds to the risk. Having said that if they are a healthy weight I think you can be good to go.
    BTW is it just me or does your girl baby already look like a girl and the boy already looks like a boy?! So cute!


    amandale lovely bump - good luck with your GTT.
