My doctor gave me permission to go to see the little guy today, so it was fun to see the baby AND get out of the house! Another lady from Melissa and Luke's church had her baby yesterday, so Tony and I got a chance to hold two 7 lb babies at the same time ... what a reality check! Mommy's going to need 4 arms. :)

- My belly is now as big as a full-term single baby pregnancy
- The good news: Both babies are staying head down (they need to stay that way to avoid a c-section). The bad news: I have four feet pointed directly at my ribs, which they are now big enough to kick, regularly!
- It's very possible to monitor "both" heartbeats for half an hour before realizing that they were actually monitoring the same heartbeat on two different monitors. :)
- My doctor will consider taking me off bed rest in two weeks, and off the contraction medication in four weeks. Yay!

The second piece of good news is that my body is actually holding steady, as well. I'm not sure the doctor sees this very often, because he didn't even know when to ask me to come in next. He finally decided that he doesn't need to see me for three more weeks! I will miss getting to see the twincesses in ultrasounds, but I'm not complaining about missing all the other stuff that they do at those appointments. Unfortunately, this doesn't mean a break in bed rest, but I think I can survive.
My family, friends, and blog readers must have a direct line to God, because the same doctor that has been telling me that we have between 1 - 3 weeks left is now saying he can't make an accurate prediction. Why does that leave me fearful that I'm going to have to deliver two, ten pound babies at full term, and have to spend 7 more weeks on bed rest? :)

And if you like that one, there's a more whimsical song by the same group called "It's a Big World" that's pretty cute. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-Npu_ly3ZM
I'll write a doctor's appointment update after my appointment this afternoon!

Here she is trying to figure out what kind of shampoo she wanted to use that day. :)
And cuddling with our other cat, Grey. They loved each other, and Grey hasn't stopped meowing at night and wanting extra love since Copper left. It breaks my heart.
My parents' cat ran away in 2005, and it came back after 6 months, so I guess all hope isn't lost. Until then, though, we'll remember our independent, wild little kitty fondly.
