My appointment today

A short and sweet update about my boys. I am happy to report that they are still doing so well! They are in fact, thriving. Fluid levels look perfectly even, my cervix grew and is now back to its former glory of 4.37cm and in the past 2.5 weeks the Twinks gained a half a pound each and now weigh 1.5lbs a piece. My perinatologist said that they are bucking the trend of twins being small. Of course I beamed with pride.

Let me just say it again...

THREE POUNDS WORTH OF BABIES!

Les Twinks -- MY Twinks are fatties!

This puts them in the 83% for weight at this gestational age and the scale is based on singletons!

That's right.

You heard me.

I've already pulled out the percentile brag sheet and the babes are STILL IN MY WOMB.

And that, my friends, is how we roll here at Maison Piglet. :)

P.S. - Lest you think it's *all* rainbows and sunshine here, I will confide that I'm thinking about switching our final name choices for the boys to Z.ofran and Z.antac. The boys may be thriving but I am unfortunately NOT! Really the only thing that doesn't make me totally nauseous or give me wicked heartburn are sweets - ice cream, pie, pastries and candy. Now watch me get gestational diabetes. Sheesh.

Go Twinks! You are an awesome twin-carrier! Sorry you are still on the double Z treatment. Hoping that resolves verrrry soon.

XO!

Glad to hear everyone, including Zofran and Zantac, is doing well. Hang in there, Mama! Oh, and I will likely be joining the too-many-sweets-gestational-diabetes club. :-)

So glad Les Twinks are doing so well! :)

WOO HOO! You are an inspiration to twin-carriers everywhere. I'm glad they are thriving.

That really stinks about the tummy problems, though! I really thought they'd be past you by now. I am big on the sweets right now, too, but fortunately other stuff is tolerable... just not as good. :)

Oh, and btw, our plane ride today is about 4 1/2 hours. UGH! Not looking forward to this... we decided to save money by having Bean fly as a "lap baby" instead of getting his own seat. I'm thinking we will live to regret that, it's not like my lap is much good these days!

Nothing like a couple of prenatal overachievers to make your day! Such good news that they're doing so well! And kind of amazing that they're getting so big even though you've been so sick. Hope that gets better for you asap!
