Feeling Full Term!

Well yesterday was a doctor appointment and ultrasound. Everything looked great. Baby A, who is apprently wanting to be first very badly because he/she is already engaged in my pelvis, weighed in at 3 pounds and 7 ounces. (approx 70th percentile, meaning he/she is bigger than 70 percent of babies at this time in gestation). Baby B who is more into getting pictures taken is a little smaller at 3 pounds and 2 ounces. (50th percentile). All this means that i have well over 6 pounds of baby in there already, not to mention two placentas and sacs filled with amniotic fluid! Which by the way they also measured and it looked like they still had good amounts.

It looks like so far my body is handling everything fine. Blood pressure and blood sugar are good. Iron was a little low but not enough to say I'm anemic. I've gained a little under 33 pounds. There is a lot of belly!

Next appointment will be in two weeks although I have to go back today for the second shot of steroids to help develop their brains and lungs in case they come early. I'm thinking they won't be too early but one never knows.

Thanks for all the support!
