That's right...I'm having two boys!! I couldn't be happier. My life is going to get a lot messier, a lot sportier and most likely involve way more hilarious bodily noises than I'm used to for years to come. Guess what?! I'm going to love every minute of it. Even when I pretend I don't.
Boys love their mama's. Not just when they are little, but always. Not that girls don't. They totally do. But to surround myself with two little guys who hopefully, are as sweet as their father...it can't possibly get much better than that.
Our appointment last week went well. Both boys were moving like crazy. Especially Baby B. He seems to be the mover and shaker and likes to stretch out and force his brother into scruntchy little positions. They are both still rocking nice strong heart beats in the 160-170's.
K is feeling pretty good. She still gets hit with nausea from time to time, but she handles it like a champ and usually pickles do the trick for her. Her blood pressure was a bit high at our appointment. It was 144/86. I've had a few up and down moments of worry over this since Friday. The doctor "isn't worried just yet". They sent her home to do the 24 hour urine test to see how her kidney's are functioning and whether there is any protein in her urine. She's taking that test on Thursday and will take it to the lab on Friday.
My hope is this was just a fluke and something maybe triggered a bit of stress before her appointment. Preeclampsia quite honestly scares the crap out of me and I just didn't think it would be something I would worry about this early. My fear is if she's having BP issues this early, then she will have more issues later on. I just want K and the babies to have a safe and healthy delivery. That's all I ask. Would love to hear thoughts from any of you that have insight or experience. We see the MFM doctor next Thursday and I'm sure he'll have his own two-cents worth on the subject.
Speaking of...next week T and I both will be traveling to Texas for that appointment. This will be the first time that he's been able to join us for an ultrasound and I'm so excited for him to experience seeing and hearing the babies first hand. Which at this anatomy exam, I'm told we'll get lots of that. But also, he's going to get to spend time with K and her family the way I have. Every time I go there I'm reminded that this family came into our life for a reason. Not just to complete our family...but I think it is much bigger than that. I think they came in to our world to make us a better family and to be a part of our life for always.
I absolutely love this family.
