So back at the hospital, I had my sonogram at 7am. Baby A is 1 lb, 14 oz, and Baby B is 1lb, 13 oz. This is right on track! They were both breech (feet down) at the sono, but by the time the nurse came to monitor, Baby A was head down! They are moving like crazy! I was not aware of this, but apparently, they stop measuring lengths at this point becaue it is so tough to get the whole body on the screen. Oh well, their femur lenghts were good and my cervix still looked great, too. Brad came and gave my butt shot. Ha Ha Ha!!! He was so nervous, hands shaking and all, but did a great job! Actually, it hurt less than when the nurses did it! There are two big circles drawn in magic marker, indicating the locations that are okay for the needle. He took notes and everything since it is only given once a week. There are actually several little steps involved! He packed up all my stuff and we headed out!
Once home, I recovered from the driving situation mentioned earlier and Brad ran to the grocery and then got my prescriptions filled.
I sat in the nursery for a while and took these pictures to share:
My favorite right now are the paintings that match the dolls in the cribs! They are called Ugly Dolls and apparently there are several different characters even though they all look pretty similar (ugly) and cute! Thanks for those, Kristine! Brad's other sister, Kari, painted watercolor scenes with the Ugly Dolls. They are so amazing! They match the nursery perfectly and are so well done. This is what inspired me to try to draw that one day in the hospital! Thank you so much for these, Kari!
