Holy Moly

Had a perinatologist appointment yesterday.

The ultrasound estimates that:

Baby A weighs 4 lb. 2 oz.

Baby B weighs 3 lb. 14 oz.

I'm not real great at math, but I'm pretty sure that adds up to 8 lbs. of baby.

Already.

Oh yeah, and that extra placenta and amniotic fluid adds another 3 lbs. or so.

Oh, and I'm "only" 32 weeks.

Measuring 40 in case you weren't sure.

Have I ever mentioned that I'm 5'2"?

Andy may have to knock out a wall to get me out of the house and to the hospital by the end of all this...

by "all the way" I really hope you mean 36-37 weeks and NOT 40-41!!!

oh, jeannett--that's so great that the babies are getting big. i'm sorry you're uncomfortable, but the bigger the babies, the fewer the problems, right? can you imagine, just birthing and going home, no nicu time? wouldn't that be great? hang in there. love those twin pics, too. two baby girls in your arms, in no time.

Well, at 32 wks 3 days, I gave birth to my 4 lb 1 oz baby girl...

At 33 wks, 4 days I gave birth to my 5 lb son...

Preemie birth hurts 13 times worse than full term, from what I hear. Keep those girls in longer!!! Your body doesn't need to go through any more than it already is!!!
