An update on the twins and I... I am on house arrest. It is not bedrest, but I need to rest as much as I can. Pineapple is only in the 11th percentile... Coconut is in the 47th.
So, they want me to rest. Hopefully, this will keep my body from using energy and give it to the babies.
I'm doing pretty good so far. Than God for cable, PSP, and internet. I have been keeping myself pretty busy. I think it has helped that I have school stuff to do... Therefore, I have been procrastinating. I'm very good at that.
Yesterday, I did get out for a bit. I had to take the 3 hour gestational diabetes test. I didn't pass the first one. 4 vials of blood and 24 hours later I got the results... I PASSED!!!!!! I'm so happy!!!! I was worried about trying to provide enough nutrients for the babies while being extremely careful about my diet.

Wow, I didn't realize how long it had been since I posted. The babies are growing and as you can see, my belly is growing too!!!! This picture was taken last week at 26 weeks. 80% of twins are born at or before 36 weeks... So, we have a strong chance of having 2 babies in the next 8 1/2 weeks. Until then... rest and more rest.
I'm tracked out for 3 weeks and will probably be out until the babies are born. The more I rest... the longer I think the babies will be able to grow and stay in there. That is the most important thing for now!
