On Friday we went to another ultrasound, at this point, I have no idea how many we’ve been too. Every ultrasound I get a little bit nervous the night before because you just never know what is going on in there. I usually wake up early and send a few emails and keep my self busy with some house chores till time to go to the doctor’s office. When the technician starts I have no clue as to what she is looking at but my favorite part of the scan is when we hear the heartbeat, that is when I can first relax. The other things after that are gravy until they tell us the size and the twins are within 2 oz. of each other, which is great. Apparently, baby A is in the 95th percentile and baby B is in the 84th percentile as far as height and weight go. This time we got to see their faces and I might be biased but they are some good looking kids! As we wind down to the delivery date each ultrasound is looking more and more like actual people and it is an awesome feeling! As my father-in-law, Mark said, “Most of the time you send me those pictures I can’t tell what I’m looking at, but these look like little people!”
Friday we also continued to get the nursery ready, I broke down the bed in there and took it downstairs, vacuumed and cleaned the carpet and now it is ready for the crib and dresser delivery this Friday, February 1st. Is it amazing to anyone else that it is February already, it feels like we just celebrated the New Year! February is the shortest month of the year and then we are into March, that is when the babies arrive. I did find out some great news today the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament are that weekend and as Erin said, “At least we will have something to watch on TV while we are at the hospital.” That was Erin that said that not me, I would not dream of saying that for fear of repercussions! I am really glad we are thinking on the same plane though.
My wife is a trooper she had a stuffed up nose on Friday that turned into a sinus infection on Saturday and on Sunday she finally called the doctor who called her in a prescription. She is feeling better now but was she feeling miserable on Saturday and I was away at our conference middle school wrestling match, which we did awesome at by the way. I hate sinus infections and I couldn’t imagine having one at 27 weeks pregnant. She hardly complains at all. Here is to hoping she feels better and can finish the pregnancy strong.
Hope everyone has a great week, we love you guys and want to thank everyone for their support of the Peters twins. We know they will have the best life ever because of the people they are surrounded by. It takes a village to raise a child and we feel they will be surrounded by the greatest family and friends any two kids could have. Thank you and God Bless.
