The 33 week visit:
We were able to see fun video of both babies squirming around in their large tank today at Doc's. Baby Girl is 4 lbs 5 oz and Baby Boy is 4 lbs 13 oz. This, so I'm told, is great. They're staying within 10-20% of each other's weight and that is a good sign.
I am, however, showing some signs that they're ready to break out. Not immediately (oh, dear goodness I hope not!), but soon. Baby Girl's head is VERY low and Baby Boy's head is nudging down there as well.
We're still crossing our fingers for another 3-4 weeks. In the meantime, Doc said for me to tone it down considerably. Not forced bed rest, but close enough. I shall obey...until Toddler A and Toddler B need me...which is every other second!
I will now start the precautionary meds to keep contractions from happening (like a muscle relaxer) because contractions at this point would signal my body to start labor...too soon. And, unlike most pregnancies, we actually don't want labor. That would mean an emergency c-section and I'd prefer to leave the word "emergency" out of our already crazy circumstances.
Appointments every week now.
At some point we'll need to name these babies. Or do we already have the names? Well I'd say it looks like we do!
