Almost to 29!

Today I had my ultrasound and it was so great to see the girls again. I have more face pictures, but still no way to scan them. So you will all just have to wait and see their beauty until they emerge from my womb. Baby A weighed in at 2lbs. 5oz and Baby B weighed 2lbs. 11oz. Nearly a full pound weight gain for baby b since I have been here! Those weights were so great to hear that we are out of the 1lb. range. And I have gained two pounds so at least I am gaining a little, thought that is probably mostly babies.

They also picked a for sure date for my C-section. November 13 it is. I am on the schedule that day, so I will either be at 8, 9:30 or 11. Not sure on the time yet, though I'm hoping for the early one so we can get this show on the road.

Another good thing that happened is that my every 72 hour blood draws got cancelled. PRAISE THE LORD! I hate getting stuck and every 72 hours leaves your veins pretty sore. My specialist saw my arm today and it has a big bruise on it from one of my draws and he was not happy with the fact that they were drawing them so frequently. He was also concerned that by the time I got to delivery my veins would be so worn down that they wouldn't be able to give me an IV. So he used his big man on campus authority to shut them down. I was thrilled. The reason they were doing it so frequently is because of some weird policy that you have to have a clot on file in case of emergency but they only last 72 hours, so since I'm here for so long they keep having to redraw and redraw and redraw. Very annoying and painful. So no more of that nonsense.

Last night was another rough night with continuous monitoring and a nurse that was about to drive me legally insane. So I didn't sleep much at all. This morning I looked like a zombie so I have been sleeping most of the day since I returned from my ultrasound. It was so nice to get to go over to the doctor. I had a nice wheelchair ride and got to see the world for a change and get out of my little cave for a while.

So that's about it for now. I'm hanging in here. We love the name guesses!! Keep them coming! If all goes well then I will try to have another clue up tomorrow.
