Happy 2012 to everyone! Very excited as we enter the year that our little babies will be born.
I found out that I passed my 3 hour glucose test. All four of my numbers came in within the normal range. So happy to not have to follow a special diet or monitor my own blood sugars. That was a huge relief for me. I also had a check-up this past week. I am spilling protein and my blood pressure is up, along with considerable swelling and headaches. But I had my blood drawn to check for stuff related to preeclampsia. I guess liver function and platelets. That came back normal. So we are just keeping an eye on things for now.
They also had a hard time getting Baby B's heartbeat. I wasn't concerned because I had just recently felt him moving. They sent me over for a quick ultrasound. Everything looked great. He was tucked up under my ribs, which is why they had a hard time. I got some cute pictures, including some 3D ones. They haven't changed much since the last pictures I got. I also found out that I am now going to start weekly non-stress tests and will soon be moved up to weekly check-ups as well.
Here was something that came as a shock to me earlier this week. I put on a shirt that fit me at the end of my last pregnancy, which lasted 40 weeks. It was too small for me. I think I have now hit the point of being the biggest I have been and still have 2-ish months left. I want to, once again, reiterate that I am really too short to be carrying twins. I feel like I'm out of room. I can't imagine how much bigger I'm going to get. I also chopped a good 6" off my hair. It's now shoulder length. It's taking a while to get used to but the length is nice. It doesn't get in my way as much. I may go get more cut off before the twins come.
