Apparently I’m a pretty good crock-pot. We had our 30-week visit and ultrasound this morning and the babies are fat and happy. Baby Boy is weighing in at about 3 lbs 12 oz and Baby Girl is about 3 lbs 7 oz. She’s right on schedule and he’s about a week bigger, which has been his style the whole way. He’s also quite the exhibitionist and doesn’t shy away from the camera. She, on the other hand, does not like to be messed with. Inevitably her hands are in front of her face, and today she had both a leg and arm blocking her head. We’re curious to see if these personality traits persist after they are born.
They are both being stubborn about their positions. On Friday, I was having extreme discomfort and thought I was going to look down and see an alien coming from my belly button. I hoped that they were turning around, but no such luck with that endeavor. I guess they like having their heads crammed up against my rib cage. I’m going to have to reach into a big bag of tricks to see what we can do to get these little rascals to get in the right position so I don’t have to have a c-section.
Thankfully, I’m not having any preterm labor and everything appears to be moving along as it should. We want to keep these little ones cooking as long as possible. For now, I will continue to watch my belly morph into unnatural positions and keep watch on my belly button. In terms of turkey, I’m almost done.
