I was worried about our tiny twin. This always happens. I leave a good appointment all high. Yay me! Mah uterus is badass and mah baybees is beeger! Mah shit smells faintly of roses and fruit punch Gatorade! You wish you were me! I love cheese!
But then, a few days later, I'm all mah uterus is doomy and mah baybees probably isn't beeger! Mah shit actually smells really...shitty! Woe is me! Cheese is all I have left!
So that's why I decided that I'd keep my appointment during the blizzy and just make sure that both babies were behaving. This gives you a good idea of the road conditions:
|The turnpike, which is usually the first road to be cleared.|
|My toes have more rolls than a bakery.|
But anyway, my blood pressure is normal and I am not peeing protein and so my doctor was less than impressed with my Thankles and the fact that the only shoes that fit are Crocs. You know how I feel about Crocs, and now my doctor does, too and he didn't even need to see my exposed ass to learn how I feel about Crocs. Dr. Stewart FTW!
Here is a picture of me, in public, wearing compression hose** with Crocs (fur lined! with Jibbitz!) and pajama pants:
Hog Baby: 2lb 10oz.
Tiny Baby: 2lb
Tiny baby actually grew more than Hog baby this week. Yay for eating cheeseburgers, tiny baby! Her fluid is totally normal and the doctor thinks that she bought us another two weeks at least before we need to talk delivery. I'm 30 weeks today, so that will put me right at 32. Good, good, good news!
I'm still going to the doctor every week, and now we are adding in two nonstress tests per week to keep a close eye on them. But as long as the nonstress tests look good, we aren't even going to do another scan until 32 weeks. Fingers crossed! My first test is this afternoon!
In addition to my three appointments this week, I'll do my glucose test (to determine if there will be a return of the Wilford Brimley to this blog) and a bunch of blood work. And I have to go to the regular doctor because either someone shoved a knife in my ear, or I have an ear infection. Or the swelling has moved from my Thankles to my ear. So many possibilities!
A bunch of other stuff happened with my Outside Baybee, better known as Olivia the Febrile Seizure Champ, on Monday. I'll just save it for another post. But she's good too, and she's actually in her bed yelling "MAHM! MILK!" right now.
*My fingers? Also fat rolly sausages. I totally butterfingered my phone and just dropped it for no good reason at all. Carpal tunnel + sausage fingers = broken iPhone (squared).
**Thanks for the suggestion, but even compression hose can't contain the power of the Thankle. All they did was make it more painful to take my socks off.
***I really need to get my caption length under control.
