30 weeks

I had an appointment Wednesday with my OB.  Nothing too exciting to report.  My uterus is measuring 34 weeks.  Both babies are still head down.  They're a little concerned about my iron levels but she seems to think the supplements I'm on will be enough.  She did a quick u/s to see the heartbeats.  Addyson was looking straight at the probe so we got a frontal view of her face.  Her cheeks looked so chubby!!  We can't wait to see their cute little faces!

28 weeks - Third Trimester!

Last Tuesday I hit the 28 week mark.  This was a pretty big milestone.  90% of babies born at 28 weeks will be just fine in the care of a good NICU.  What a huge relief, although I hope to keep them cooking for several more weeks.

I had two appointments last week - one with the specialist and one with the OB.  Besides being slightly anemic, everything is going well.  The babies were estimated to weigh 2lbs, 4 oz and 2lbs, 5oz.  My uterus was measuring 31 weeks and both girls are still head down.  We will be doing the hospital tour soon and Taylor will be attending a childbirth prep class for siblings, offered at the hospital.  She has a strong desire to be there when the girls are born and my doctors and midwives are very encouraging of this.  

It's hard to believe that in 2 months or less, the girls will be here.  I'm overwhelmed at the thought but so very excited to meet them.
