Well, the little bitties have stayed put and I haven't needed anymore drugs, which has been a relief. We have heard from insurance and now have a plan for how to proceed.

I will stay until a week from this upcoming Wednesday (36 weeks) and then they will send me home. The act of going home will probably start things up again so I'll just come right back in and deliver. Of course, I could deliver sometime in the next 12 days making this little plan irrelevant, but the big goal is to hang on until this upcoming Wednesday so that we avoid an automatic NICU stay. At the rate things are going, I think that we will have no problem meeting that goal, but clearly I am in charge of NOTHING here, so I don't want to say that too loudly so that these little people don't decide to prove otherwise.

So far brother still moves around like a fish, both babies heartbeats are strong, and apparently they like contractions because instead of their heartbeats dipping, they actually spike - "The babies get excited when you contract!" Lovely... they already like to torture their mother...

On another note, trying to paint your fingernails while your legs are being massaged by compression stockings will only result in disaster, unless you were going for an Impressionist effect. And, it turns out, the beef tacos are not a good choice either. Pray for me - lunch is beef stew. Good times.
