This year is going to be such a new and exciting one for C and me! Oh, the adventures that await us in twin-parenthood!
As of right now, the babies are still here. I’m 35 weeks and 6 days: 1 day shy of my ultimate goal of 36 weeks. We had an appointment on Tuesday (everything looked fantastic) and because of their amazing growth and a tiny little blip of a heart rate scare (thanks, Baby Boy) we went ahead and scheduled a c-section for next Friday, January 13th.
Friday the 13th? You might ask…isn’t that a bit of an unlucky date to schedule the birth of your twins? First, nonsense, you superstitious ninny. And second, I think it is pretty cool because if you recall our egg retrieval (and fertilization, and therefore conception) was on Friday, May 13th! Exactly nine months later! What could be luckier for these little miracles?
However, that doesn’t mean I couldn’t go into labor at any time before then! Everyone, including Dr. G, seems to think that I won’t really make it until next week. We’ll see! Until then I am just waddling around the house, nesting and getting things organized. I’m pretty uncomfortable (contractions, low back pain, separated pelvis, etc) but I’m hanging in there and taking lots of naps. Here is a pic from last week…I’m even bigger now! Wish us luck, and I’ll keep everyone updated.
