Time flies!

Wow, it's been a long time since I last updated!  Sorry!  Life is busy.  :)  We are going to be 33 weeks tomorrow.  I have my good days and my bad days.  My feet are starting to swell a bit.  Just the last couple days, my back has been aching something fierce at work.  I sit at my desk all day and by the afternoon, it's almost unbearable to keep sitting there. Needless to say, it's nice to go home and relax with my feet up at the end of the day.

We just had an ultrasound and doctor appointment Monday.  The ultrasound went well. Babies are 2 weeks ahead....shocker!  LOL.  The guesstimated weights are 5 pounds 3 ounces for Baby Boy A and 5 pounds 6 ounces for Baby Girl B.  That is crazy big!!  Combined, they are already 11 ounces bigger than my biggest baby.  Some babies are BORN that big, just to put that into perspective.  We could see the boy practice breathing, which was neat.  Of all my other 5 pregnancies, I've never seen that before. The ultrasound tech said she guessed we only have 2-3 more weeks, based on their size, lack of room and the practice breathing seen. Both babies were facing my back, so no adorable pics to share with the parents.  Boo!!

Baby Boy was head down at the last ultrasound.  He is no longer.  Little stinker!!  I totally felt it when he moved, too...slightly painful.  He is breech, transverse kinda (almost diagonal), with his head in my right hip and his tush and feet towards the exit.  Baby Girl is transverse with her head down a bit and her feet!!  Let's pray Baby Boy flips around before labor comes.  I so want to avoid a c-section.  I told my hubby I wasn't sure if I was more scared of the c-section itself or of the epidural.  LOL.  How weird is that!?  I'd much rather labor and breath through hours of pain than get an epidural.  Plus, I've heard of some of the side effects of those.  No thank you.  :)  If it's needed, by all means, of course I will get the c-section.  I'll do whatever it takes to keep these babies safe!  We are in the home stretch now.  Next appointment and scan are March 7th.  S&G will be flying to the states next Monday, so they will be able to see their babies on the scan.  I'm so excited for them.  I can't imagine how they are feeling as D-Day gets closer and closer. Please keep the prayers and happy thoughts coming.  I know we all greatly appreciate them!!  Much love to all for your support!
