Tomorrow is the Big Day

Due to C being home until 2, and then an OB appointment at 3, I have not been alone much yet today to allow stress to percolate. And only two hours til C gets home so hopefully I can maintain this state.

The MFM appointment went well. Baby A measured 6 pounds, 2 ounces and Baby B measured 6 pounds. Great weights! Obviously the ultrasound is not completely accurate but we can still expect good sizes at birth. Baby B is now head down! I guess that is why I thought his mocements had decreased over the past few days - the movements were merely in a different locale. Sucks I still am not able to attempt vaginal birth unless both were head down.

If I were allowed to go into labor, I would predict it would be about another week. The contractions (Braxton Hicks) have been increasing to about 5 per day from 1 or 2, menstrual cramps seem a bit more frequent, babies have definitely dropped, and I have loose stool 3-5 times a day instead of once. Otherwise, business as usual. 

It sucks in a way that so many people know I am scheduled for tomorrow. The texts and phone calls are overwhelming. Ummm no I will NOT be sending you a pic right away unless you are a close friend or family! Rule of thumb - if you do not know what I went thru to get here, you are not on the priority list and may not receive notification tomorrow. I hope my phone does not blow up tomorrow.

The Kinks: "This time tomorrow/ Where will we be...what will we know."
