and all is well. My bp is normal (knew it would be!) so doc said to just keep doing what I've been doing. My cervix shortened a bit, but not much and no funelling, contactions or "unusual uterine activity" so he isn't worried about that. Also, the babes are all around 4 pounds.
DH asked about the chances of me being on hospitalized bedrest and the doc went on about how bad that would be for me because with all the nurses needing something to do, they would be observing me really closely and likely finding small things to worry about. THe we would have to deal with unneccesary intervention and probably an early delivery. So unless there is (G-d forbid) some sort of drastic, horrible change, no hospital (I'm not sure why dh is worried about this as it wa sonly brought up once as a slim possibility and last resort if my bp didn't behave.)
OB also has no idea if May 2nd will be it or if I'll be able to go longer. He did have 2 triplets pregnancies before me that went to 37 weeks, so I know that if we're all good, I can get that far. That would put me at the week starting May 12.
