Chugging Along

So we haven't been on here in a while, but I've definitely been keeping up with everyone's updates and I am so happy to see all the wee lil' babes! Everything is moving along s.l.o.w.l.y. here. At our 32 week appointment everything seemed to be looking great, but it wasn't so good this time around. We are 34 weeks today and the babies are measuring very small (3rd and 9th percentile). They were 4 lbs 2 oz and 4 lbs 8 0z. I can't believe I have 8 lbs of baby in there! I have another appointment with a high risk OB on Wednesday. Baby A has only gained 3 oz in two weeks and baby B has gained 9 0z. I am a little nervous that I have IUGR. My belly still looks small even though I can hardly change positions without the help of my wife.

I am still working full time and almost done with school for this semester. I am hoping all goes well on Wednesday and they don't want to put me on bed rest. I just want to get them to 36 weeks! (plus I want to stuff my face on Turkey Day) So please cross your fingers for us that they grow like weeds in the next few days :) I am feeling so nervous as the braxton hicks come and go and can't believe that we will be a family of four by Christmas. It is truly surreal. Even as my belly rolls like waves in the ocean, it still hasn't sunk in. I just feel so lucky and can't believe we are going to be moms! I am so looking forward to cuddling these little boys and nuzzling their little necks-it just fills my heart thinking about it.

R is doing great with the induced lactation and is a milk making machine! We are so excited although she has to pump every 3 hours from here until the babies come. It has been relatively easy though. (easy for me to say!) I am so glad that it's working and she will get to feed them too, it's a bond for not only her and the babies but for me and her as well. I am really proud of her for sticking with it. Well that's all for now but I can't wait to hear about more positive pee sticks and birth stories!
