YES, I’m still here J Never thought I would be home still at this point, but I’m still kickin’! Not much to report from our appt. yesterday (which is good), but wanted to give you a quick update!
-Best news is that ALL the babies made it to 3 pounds which is a good milestone at 30 weeks! They were 3 lbs, 3lbs 2oz, and 3lbs 6oz. Now our next goal is 4 pounds!
-I gained just a pound over the last 2 weeks (still not sure how that’s possible since the babes total weight gain is way over that for those same weeks?l) Now up to a gain of 33….I’m thinking my goal should be 40lbs overall instead of her initial one of 70! Just not going to happen no matter how I try. We even had a BIG Mexican lunch at Ninfa’s on Navigation just before the appt thinking it would help, but guess the babies needed those enchiladas more than I did J you’re welcome kids!
- Dr. told me to pack my bags for next week’s appt and each one following b/c we just don’t know when hospital time will come. Dodge &Cash aren't handling the suitcases in the corner very well L
Knock on wood, but still no swelling, intense pain, stretch marks, or other irritating issues from my meds like I was expecting! The biggest annoyance now is the MANY bathroom trips…not exaggerating at all when I say I go every 15-20 minutes, then overnight every hour.
What I’m loving this week:-long soaks in our Jacuzzi tub (although the water has to be lukewarm, not hot),
-fruit juice/lemonade, smoothies, or anything cold!
-seeing all the babies’ swings, seats, etc. being assembled and waiting to be used,
-watching random movies from Netflix or HBO (Ramona and Beezus was really good! A suggestion from the teacher and 3rd grader in me I guess!)
-the fact that July is half over...makes us that much closer to meeting our new loves!
