30 week Milestone

Well, we have made it to week 30. The goal is still 37 weeks before the little ones make their debut. I do have some picts from the doctor visit last week. I asked him to try and get a foot or hand or something. He was able to get Thing 2's profile and foot. Thing 1 is quite far down and starting to move behind Thing 2, so we were only able to see the arm in front of the face.

It is still fun to go and see them moving on the screen and try to figure out what they are doing when I feel strange movements. I've got the hiccups down, and the stretches, but there is something that Thing 1 does that feels like a shiver and a spin. But how arms can do that, I'm not sure. We'll find out when they are born.
Thing 2 weighed 3 lbs and Thing 1 weighed 2lb11oz. They are both still doing great and have plenty of what they need. I don't have all of what I need, which is mainly sleep. With sick kids and teenagers in the house, this is one thing that has been lacking.
I am now going every week for check ups, which helps my anxiety about their welfare. We went and toured the hospital, mainly to see the OR and the NICU so that there will be no unexpected surprises. With twins, my doctor delivers in the OR. The NICU is right across the hall.
Now that it is February, we are really getting on the ball with getting things done. We want to have as much ready before they come as possible. Luckily I have felt well and been able to do what needs done. The kids have also been helpful. With such busy lives now days, we all have to work together to keep things running smoothly.
I have created a page to help me keep track of the twins the first few weeks at home. I feel this will help me know how each is doing and to be able to assist the doctor in keeping these little ones healthy. Thanks to Grandpa Kirkham for the cliipboard, so I didn't have to steal one from the kids.
