Sweet progress!!!!!

I just wanted to post a quick update. Sorry it is late in coming. It is difficult to do a whole lot when on bedrest... especially when you are required to stay on your left side 80% of the day!

As of this morning, the babies seem to be doing really well. We went in for an appt today. Both babies passed the non-stress test. They also did some quick measurements and said they think our little girl is around 3 lbs 14 oz and our little boy is around 4 lbs 12 oz. If this is correct, then they have both gained over a pound in the last 2 1/2 weeks. We will go to a Duke specialist next Tuesday for more accurate measurements.

If the measurements are correct, then we will most likely be able to post pone the c-section (now scheduled for March 20). This will mean the babies have more time to develope correctly and will have less of a chance of being in the NICU. Unfortunately, it will mean a couple more weeks of this side bedrest, but it is worth it!!!!!

So, we just take it day by day and pray for the best!

Wow! That is great news! I hope that you will be able to postpone the c cection. That way you won't have your babies before mine. Just kidding! I wish you the best, and hope that all goes well in the next couple of weeks.
