Each week is a week closer to having healthy babies it also is a week closer to being the end of this pregnancy. That is kind of bittersweet for me, as much as I want the babies here with us I am not really ready for this pregnancy to be over yet. For as high risk as they categorized me and for the fact that the doctors all expected me to be on complete bed rest weeks ago we have shown them all that these babies are fighters and this pregnancy has been pretty easy.
I am excited that the nursery will be all done this week. Ryan is coming to put up the trim and Tom and Kate have put together the cribs and changing table already and are going to do the dressers. I have most of their stuff put away now and just need to wash the preemie clothes and finish packing their bag.
Beginning Wednesday I start the steriod shots to get the babies lungs ready for a premature delivery. I definately am not looking forward to some more shots! I am hoping they will be doing actual weight checks this week, up until now they just tell me the babies are about x lbs. I want to know exact numbers! LOL!
Ben is doing well, his recovery time from chemo was less this time around then the previous couple cycles. We got the results from his nerve conduction study and it shows the absence of nerve endings in his ankles so hopefully that is something they can regenerate. We will have to talk to the doctor next week about that.
