Well, maybe not just yet. I wouldn't want to jinx anything and I know babies can lose weight in the hospital after they are born BUT my little monsters? - already at 5 pounds each!! (Technically Baby A is 5 lbs 4 ounces and Baby B is 4 lbs 15 ounces.) I bought matching preemie outfits for the trip home from the hospital on the big day just in case they follow the norm of twins being born early and tiny. I already had some newborn outfits and honestly the difference between the two sizes looks enormous. The preemie outfits look like doll clothes! (boy dolls of course.) Even if they swim in the newborn outfits, they seem like better choices.
Everything else is going pretty well too. Both babies are now head down with Baby A pretty low and Baby B at a slight diagonal. The gestational diabetes has been under control with only a few hiccups and my doctor is so excited with my overall progress, I thought she was going to hug me at my check-up today.
The fluid in my legs, ankles and feet though is B.A.D., bad. Apparently no one is concerned but I miss my knee caps and ankle bones and my thighs and calves are pretty tender. I would say that's the worst of it at this point. No swelling in my hands or face. I'm still working and try to elevate my feet when I'm sitting at my desk.
I'm still at bi-monthly appointments but will switch to weekly after my next ultrasound and check-up on the 24th. I will be 36w3d at that point! That will also be my first non-stress test due to the diabetes. Looking forward to it and to finding out how much the boys are weighing then!
