- Went to the doctor today...he said that everything looked good and that it would be a good idea to make arrangements for a c-section. Hailey hasn't moved out of the transverse/breech position, so my best option (and their best option) would be a c-section. So, the girl will call me on Monday to arrange that. If I happen to go into labor before that, then we'll just go with the flow!
- We had the NST (non-stress test) for both babies and it was short and sweet. We couldn't get a good read on Matthew (which is unusual...he's pretty cooperative normally), but we finally got the monitor to stay on him (even though he kept trying to kick it off) and both babies are responding normally to stress/movement.
- I am getting my ass handed to me with this pregnancy. It's tough, painful, frustrating, and exhilarating all at the same time. My sister called me this morning and asked how I was doing and I said, "I'm feeling quite bitchy this morning." That was the only way I knew how to put it...I'm happy that things are going well, but I kind of wish there was a fast forward button for this part of it! My belly is so freaking huge that I don't even know how to move. My pelvis is absolutely killing me unless I lie perfectly still...which I've actually become pretty adept at doing. My arms are almost too short to wipe myself...that couldn't get more embarrassing...could you imagine if I need Bill to start doing that for me??? I would die!!! Yes, so I bitch, but it doesn't matter...they're in there, they need to be in there, and I have to grin and bear it. Thank God I feel them move b/c that is all that is getting me through without trying everything in my power to send myself into labor.

I can't believe that I've shared my feelings 100 times...what is this? Therapy??? Just kidding...it's been well worth it. Here is the latest on the twins' impending arrival.
