I went into my dr appt on Monday morning and everything with the babies looked good thankfully. I told the dr I was worried because I had a hard time feeling Charis move. I had spent the whole weekend with my hands on her side of my tummy and would only occasionally feel her head move and that is it. Stephen and I debated all weekend whether or not to call the dr but, then I would feel her little head move a bit. When I told the dr how hard it was to feel Charis she said she needed to admit me to the hospital for the remainder of my pregnancy and set me up with a periontologist. They walked me over right then and set me up in a room before I knew what was going on. My mom went to my house and brought my bags and set me up in the room. At a little before 5 the specialist came to do the sono and said he didn't see any reason to take the babies early. They are little but, look healthy. Charis had gained 10 oz in 5 days! She now weighs 4 lbs 9 0z and Drew is 4lbs 10oz. He said my nerves on that side were too stretched to feel her spontaneous movements. My great dr came in to see us about 6 pm and said that if insurance would cover it she could send me home to be monitored. Stephen spent the night with me and didn't get any sleep on his little bed. The next morning we got approval and I busted loose at noon. I only spent 24 hours as a resident at Baylor. We had thought that this was for the long haul so my overnight stay resulted in a cart to carry out my bags, computer, food, and goodies. I better pack lighter for our delivery. I am thankful to be home and very thankful for the nurse that comes out to check on them daily via a nonstress test.

Today the dr did my LAST big sono. Drew weighs 4 lbs 9 oz and Charis weighs 3 lbs 15 oz. On Friday I will be 35 weeks along, we have 21 days left. The dr put me on bed rest today. I am thankful for such a good pregnancy for multiples. We are just praying these little guys gain weight before their birthday. The thing I get frustrated by is kick counts. Who came up with this idea? I have tried the whole pregnancy to not get nervous by this and just prayed I would feel enough movement to be at peace but, now the dr wants to really make sure there is no decreased activity. That is stressful for one but, very frustrating with two. I don't always know who is kicking me because they are both breech and so that is four little feet in the same place. I definitely know my little wild man is moving because my whole stomach moves with him. but, her movements are so light that I have a hard time feeling them. I am praying that I will not stress about this and that I will feel her little movements and know that it is her. Everything else is great and we are looking forward to meeting them in 21 days!
