I had a busy and eventful day yesterday. The ultrasound was first and whoa mama is there a lot of baby in there. A is still head down and B is in a C shape up over A sort of head down. A is estimated to weigh 5.3lbs and B is 4.13lbs. Can you believe that?? 10lbs of baby. They were so cute. They have nice round chubby bellies which is good b/c we want them nice and fat :) Then we saw the dr. I am 3cm dilated now. They want to start weening me off the Procardia, starting this weekend. Instead of every 4 hours she wants me to try every 6 to 8 hours Saturday and every 8 to 12 hours Sunday. They want to have me off of them by next week but don't want to stop them cold turkey. She said I can slowly start adding things back into my routine but not to go crazy doing too much. She said if we make it to 36 weeks, which she thinks things look good to make it, I might be able to have the bedrest restriction lifted completely but still no work. We talked about the baby placement and at this point we are planning a vaginal delivery. I'm super excited about that. She also said that they won't take me to the operating room until I'm completely dilated. So as of right now I'll continue to take the pill, I'll start to ween off of them this weekend, next week I'll be off completely and then we wait to go into labor. How exciting!!!
We got a few things up in the nursery but won't completely finish it until my dad drops off the bookshelf he made for us. Here's a few pictures of what's up on the walls as of now.
