Either way, we have to prepare like we are delivering later this week. Which means, lining up babysitters, packing for the kids, and ourselves, cleaning the house, paying the end of the month bills, etc.
Now, for those of you just joining us, my husband and I have been married nine years and have had the joy of adopting 4 sweet kiddos. Our oldest is eight, then we have a four year old, a 2 year old, and a 1.5 year old (the two youngest are about 8.5 months apart). Then shortly before Christmas we were surprised with a pregnancy, and shortly after Christmas we were surprised to learn that we are are having twins! Life is exciting. And this may be the week we get to meet these new baby boys. The pregnancy is a high risk, and not just because I am carrying twins, but also because one baby has intrauterine growth restriction and is under 10% for his gestational age. He has been measuring behind the whole pregnancy, a couple of my doctors, including my perinatologist, were sure I was going to lose him before viability or be forced to make a decision about delivering very preterm and therefore putting his twin brother, Thomas, in danger. But here I am at 35 weeks and both babies are doing well. They are passing their non-stress tests and biophysical exams, but at our last ultrasound (I get them every two weeks) the small baby's, Agustin's, growth rate started to drop a bit, and our specialist said that if that trend continues then she'll recommend that we deliver this week. So we find out on Wednesday if that trend is indeed continuing or not.
So ultimately I do not know how realistic it is that I will post everyday this week, but I will sure try! Now that I am thinking about it, my reasoning when I signed up was that I could force myself to have a daily record of this week, the week I possibly give birth to twins. I cannot even believe it is me typing those words. I feel as if everyday I am suddenly finding myself pregnant with twins; as if I a have been dropped in this strange alternate universe.
Ok. I am going back to bed now.
