Earlier this week, we babysat for Connor (Mairead's BFF) who was less than thrilled. He was very tired that day and was very sad when his mom and dad left for all of two hours. But, he ended up relaxing with Dave and getting very comfortable snuggling with him. It was strange to see someone other than Mairead resting with Dave, but I guess we had better get used to that! Mairead was also very good about sharing her daddy while Connor was here. After his mom and dad got back, Connor suddenly had a burst of energy and was running around exploring the house, so all was well again!
Now, on to my boys. At my ultrasound on Wednesday we were very happy to learn that each baby is a little over 5 lbs! That was one of our goals, so we were thrilled to hear that. They look good and have very healthy heartbeats. At this point, doctors start to weigh the question of whether they would grow better in or out. So, I have another ultrasound next week and they will talk to us about any possibility of delivering earlier than March 25. It's a very strange position to be in- we might have new babies next week, and we might not have them for 2 and half more weeks- you never know!
I asked my doctor last week if he thought I would make it to my scheduled date. He said, "I don't know... it's not up to me. It's up to your babies and who knows what they are doing?" He has been great and very reassuring this whole time, so I know I am in good hands.
We will certainly keep everyone posted with any news (or lack of) about our boys-- thanks for checking in on us!
