Well, we have made it to 24 weeks. And by we, I mean me and the twin boys. I have been very nervous the last few weeks about preterm labor. As someone in the medical field who has seen plenty, it was nice to make it past that mark - even if I know there is not smooth sailing from here.
I don't know how any of you make it past 38 weeks and I, for one, am glad that I will not have to go past that date. I know this sounds crazy, but I already feel big. I already had to go to L&D for one night of contractions that would not go away and I am going to be working for the next 11 days straight.
I am actually starting to buy the occasional newborn item, which is a big accomplishment for me. And I have started to talk about them like they might actually be born. With everything it took to conceive and just get them to this point - it truly is a miracle.
Anyway, I hope I can make it through the next 6 weeks working - which may or may not happen.
I guess we might need to start looking at caretaker options soon. Hubby is going to need some help when I go back to work after only 6-8 weeks.
