36.4 Ultrasound

Everything is looking good. The babies are still running small. Our boy is 5 pounds 1 ounce and our girl is 5 pounds 8 ounces. Hopefully they will both be over 6 pounds by the time I deliver. 16 days and counting. Our boy is in the 10th - 25th percentile and our girl is in the 25th percentile. Our girls heartrate was 130 ande our boys was 150. Our girl had her butt in our boys face. Poor guy keeps getting bullied. This week the weather is going to be mid eighties and humid. Lucky me! The humidity really causes my feet to swell bad, so I usually just stay inside. My sister has started calling my feet Shrek feet. Too bad it is not halloween. I am measuring 47 inches around and up about 42 pounds. The last couple of weeks I have been more hungry than before. I just hope the babies are sucking up everything I am eating.

An unusual question

Perhaps I am too open and people really do feel they can ask me anything.....

Do they both work at the same time?

My answer - Yes they can.

Of course I intend to talk on my phone, sit on the floor and pump.

19 days to go. I am measuring 44 weeks for a singleton. Weight gain still at 40 pounds. Not sure how that has not increased since my appetite sure has. Ultrasound on Friday.

The Woman's Code

No one talks about it. It is simply known or perhaps it is mother nature. All women that have been pregnant and I am assuming who have been through labor know it. Perhaps I will actually get a manual before I leave the hospital. You don't tell your newly pregnant or trying to get pregnant friends the truth about pregnancy and labor. You only speak of the good. Instead of saying it hurt worst than anything you could imagine, you say, I would do it all over again or my baby made me forget the pain. One acquaintance has not read the code book. Perhaps I should give her mine. Heck even Neal knows better than to talk in detail about his surgeries. Oh well, I know what is coming is not going to be fun, but still would rather go into it without any knowledge or expectations. If only the docs could find another way to get your babies out.

There are some groups of woman out there who are in the minority that love pregnancy. I am more in the middle. It is absolutely amazing that you can grow a human inside your body, but it does take over your body. I of course am enjoying the second half of my pregnancy much better since I am not throwing up constantly. Without getting sick, I would say I am close to being in that minority. And now that I am 20 days from the end I am soaking in every kick I can. I even snapped at Neal for trying to touch my belly and hog a kick. We have wanted this for many years and are so happy to finally have the chance to have a family.
