The boys were very active, and both measured about the same. They currently weigh about 11 ounces. Baby A was kicking Baby B in the head. I hope he doesn't come out damaged. The sono tech explained that the reason I haven't felt much movement is not only because the placenta is on top (I'm guessing that means up against the outside of my tummy) but also because there are two placentas, so I'm doubly insulated, so that made me feel better. I leaned over and told my sister See, its NOT just because I'm fat! I must say that even without that little tidbit, I have determined that she is thee very best sono tech in the whole entire world and that I will love seeing her every month.
Now that we know the genders the reality of this pregnancy has settled in just a bit more, but it is still rather surreal.
It's like this:
Have you ever seen the movie Flight Plan? I was watching it last week. This lady claims she has lost her child on the plane but no one can remember seeing the girl and the girl isn't on the flight manifest. Anyway, this is how I feel about this pregnancy, like I'm going to wake up and it won't have been real, and I will be the only one who remembers it, and people will treat me like a crazy person.
I had a great weekend with the fam in SD. My sister and niece were able to come to our appointment today. It was so nice to see the fam, but it was also nice to come home to my husband, and I'm definitely enjoying my down time this evening. The road trip was 8 hours each way, which made for a lot of time in the car. Totally worth it!
Unfortunately, I am coming down with a cold, so I have this post nasal drip that I must constantly swallow and has given me a scratchy throat.
