The nurses at the clinic were all congratulating me at how far I've made it. I thought I was funny...
I've actually been feeling pretty well. I was surprised that today I felt really good. No pain, no difficulty walking or anything! It was a wonderful day just because of that. And the amazingly summery weather outside also helped.
I had my appointment today and Dr. M gave the "you better be ready because they really could come any time now" talk. Not that I'm showing any signs of preterm labor or anything... I guess it's just that time when they give the above talk because it really can happen.
sometimes I think my belly looks like a being of its own...like in this picture, it just looks like it's hugging me and it's going to walk off any minute.
If they came now, at 30 (nearly 31) weeks they would do great.
If they came in a week, they would do even better and probably only have to stay 2-3 weeks in the hospital.
If they came in 3-4 weeks, they would do wonderfully and would most likely be able to go home with us.
Exciting isn't it?!
They are each weighing 3 lbs 7 oz and baby A is still head down, but baby B keeps moving around. Last appointment she was head down but this time she was head up. But apperantly, baby A is all that matters, because baby B will either turn around once she has more room (after baby A is delivered) or they will just deliver her the way she is.
Baby B - finally a profile picture!
I got steroids today to help me their lungs, which was quite painful... add that to the RhoGAM shot and you've got yourself a recipe for no sitting for a day! It actually was not that bad... just the actual injection that stung like crazy, but then it was all good.
In two weeks I've got another appointment and they'll be doing the stress test and the Strep B test. I'm curious to see them in two weeks.
