the babies fattened up!

So glad to have a good report at the OB office today. Both babies were on target for growth and my doctor was very happy with where they are at size wise. Baby boy measured at 4 pounds 7 ounces, baby girl measures at 4 pounds! So glad she's back on board and getting fat. My blood pressure was better than it's been for a LONG time....136/74. I'll take that! It hasn't been that good after lying in bed for hours.......And, my weight was down 2 pounds...which probably helped my blood pressure!

Non-stress test went well, also, once each baby could be captured on the monitor.

So....we are still taking it day-by-day, but hoping to make it closer to 36 weeks!

I was totally prepared to head to the hospital and celebrate a double baby birthday......bags are packed, camera ready to go, I didn't eat breakfast.....I guess that's the trick!

The echo report was finally back...and looks like things are back to normal, thankfully! We are going to get the final confirmation from the cardiologist who read the report, but things look normal for the time being!
