Large and in Charge

I think this pretty much sums it up! We made it to 34 weeks yesterday and it was a great feeling. I have this calm now that if I go into labor and these kiddos come everything will be just fine. The steroid shots have had lots of time to work, so that puts me at ease.

I went to the doctor yesterday and she said that everything looked good. They hooked me up to the NST (non stress test) and both babies did wonderfully. I didn't have any contractions either. I told her that I did contract a good bit on Wednesday and that several really hurt. She said that my "new norm" in terms of contractions will be to ask myself "is this it?" Since there will be no prevention anymore, I need to watch for a pattern and real labor.

Since I will go to the doctor 2x's a week now, I return on Monday. I will have another ultrasound, repeat a 24 hour urine screen (I will be SO glad to not have to do this anymore), and they will monitor me on the NST again.

In construction news, the stairs are almost done. I can't wait!! It is going to look amazing. We think we are about 1 week out from EVERYTHING being done. God give me patience and maybe a fairy to clean my house from top to bottom.
