Looking forward to: A weekend with no plans!!! Which is our last one for the whole month. So I’m soaking this in and washing all the baby things!
Grayson: He loved seeing the babies on the sonogram. He pats my belly and gives the babies hugs at night which is really sweet. My Mom bought him an I’m going to be a Big Brother book so we have been reading that every night.
So I’m still measuring about 10 weeks ahead putting me in the 38-39 week range which makes sense because both babies are measuring around 3 pounds each, Baby Girl is 3 pounds even and Baby Boy is 2 pounds 15 ounces. They are growing really well, and since 12 weeks have stayed within an ounce of each other Baby Girl always being the one ahead. My doctor is letting me stay in work still but said to start thinking up a modified schedule that would only have me in the office 3 days a week, so I have been working on those details. He just keeps repeating to me that I have to make it to at least 34 weeks and that my only job that really counts is growing two healthy babies. I don’t have to start non-stress tests until around 32 weeks since they are looking so good on the sonograms and I have not been having any issues. My blood pressure is staying right where it should at 117/74 which is perfect. I have really been taking it easy. Coming home and just putting on comfy pants and relaxing with my feet up, taking a bath with Epsom salt every other night to help with my lower back. The only new thing this week is my wrist, on my right hand is killing me. I woke up with it a few days ago and it’s just plain awful. I can’t pick up Grayson without yelling in pain, and writing is difficult as are some typing movements. I’m hoping it’s just a pulled muscle that will heal in time. Overall things are just trucking along, just growing two babies and trying to get small ish things done in the mean time.
