Hunter Gets the Hiccups

Thought I'd post this short video of Hunter getting the hiccups. Since he is breech with his head under my right ribs, it's really easy to see my whole belly move with his hiccups, because his back is positioned at the top of my belly.

31-32 Week Appointment

I had a great appointment this morning.

Everything went well! Blood pressure is good, they're pleased that I only have very slight swelling and I gained 4 lbs in 2 weeks - YAY! I've still only gained 29 pounds so far, which isn't great (especially for carrying twins) but I still think it was because I was SO sick in the beginning for SO long. I'm doing the best I can!

We talked a lot about delivery options and how we'd like to see it all pan out. I got my first betamethasone (steroid) injection today, and get the second tomorrow (just a little boost to their lungs, in case they show up a little early). I'm measuring 43 weeks now. I start going every week in two weeks and will get NST (non-stress tests) at each appointment.

We're nearing the end now - and I'm scared to death!

A Poem

Here is a poem I heard recently and just LOVE it!

Here we are, it's plain to see,
I'm just like you, you're just like me.

Two grown together from the start,
Beneath our Mother's loving heart.

Though soon we'll walk a seperate path,
You'll always be my other half.

Lord, Thank you from us both, Amen,
'Cause we were born with our best friend.
