Last growth ultrasound at 31w4d
It is hard to believe that in three days I will finally get to meet my girls after all this time. We had our last growth ultrasound this morning, and they looked amazing! Sophia and Cecilia were 3 lb 10 oz and 3 lb 11 oz respectively with only a 2% difference in all their measurements..which is absolutely perfect! They share well already! I am beyond relieved and excited (oh and anxious, nervous, kinda freaking out). They were a bit shy today so we weren't able to get any pictures of their pretty faces, but I will see them in three days so it isn't too big of a deal. We did, however, see a little bit of hair on each of their heads..so adorable. Looking back at the last seven months, and especially at the last 53 days I have spent inpatient, I'm amazed how far we have come. Since learning that we were having twins at 9 weeks, and at 14 weeks learning exactly what was in store for us having Momo twins, it has been an emotional roller coaster. In retrospect I'm not quite sure how I managed to get through it, but in the words of one of my favorite singer/songwriters Jackson Browne, "The only way through it, is through it". My husband and I are ready to be parents, and we are especially ready to return to a semi-normal way of life. I can't wait to sleep in my own bed! I know I have said that numerous times, but I can't stop thinking about how wonderful it will be. My c-section will be on Thursday at 8 a.m., and I will try to post information, updates, and pictures by that night or Friday at the latest. Thank you everyone for your support and encouragement throughout this whole ordeal!
