2am

Thursday, May 28, 2009

With Alexander, I craved Papa John's pizza like mad. This is noteworthy because we rarely eat that kind of pizza. We have a local, Italian pizzeria near us that makes phenomenal pizza and we usually get it from there. But, the little cuddlebug wanted heavy carbed, thick crusted pizza from PJs, the closest of which is near Peter's work, about 20 minutes from us.

Tuesday, I really wanted PJs pizza. When Peter called to tell me he was on his way, I asked if he'd get it. He wasnt in the mood (pizza for lunch) so we decided on last night. So, he got home around 6pm, pizza in hand, and we ate an early dinner (we usually eat later, around 8:30). We cuddled in front of the TV on the bed and fell asleep. Around 11:30, I woke up (to, what else, go to the bathroom!) and I woke Peter up to take the dirty dishes to the kitchen and refill the water. Back to bed, we cuddle and fall asleep.

At 2am, I roll over to, once again, go to the bathroom and I hear, "Are you awake?" Poor Peter had woken up and couldnt sleep. When I get back from the bathroom, he asks "Can I turn the TV on?" I dozed as he watched things on Alzheimer's (he is a scientist, after all) and finally, a Law and Order at 4am. By this point, I'm awake and hungry. After a piece of pizza and the end of the episode, he turns the TV off. It is now 5am and the world is blue outside, slipping in from the shades. The birds are singing. We shared some moments of conversation, wrapped up in each other's arms before finally falling asleep as the world outside woke up. We slept until 8:30, when the mister had to get up and get ready for work.

On a pregnancy note... Yesterday, the babies must have been having a party in the womb. They were both on the left (where, incidentally, I have some new stretch marks!) and were moving to the point that I could feel them without touching my belly and where Peter, who has a habit of leaning his head on my belly, sat straight up and said "Did they just move?!" The doppler confirmed location, but it was insane! I hope that they decide to give this kind of show tomorrow morning at our ultrasound!

I have a call into Womb With A View. I had to leave a message, but a fellow blogger left a comment that 28-32w might be too far for twins, since they have less room to deal with. I did some online research and it seems like the biggest issue is baby fat. The babies need a certain amount of fat on them so that the images can bounce appropriately. So, since twins are usually smaller than singles, this has me wondering on two points? Will space be an issue and we need to schedule sooner? Or, will fat be an issue and we'll need to schedule later? So, I decided to call (after all, I have all the time in the world to wait for them to call me back!). UPDATE: They called back and said that 25w is considered ideal for twins. I talked to Peter and am about to schedule my appointment. (Please dont let me be jinxing this by planning this far in advance!) 2nd UPDATE: Our appt is scheduled for Saturday, August 29th. We will be 26w exactly.

Well, I think I'll ring up my dad, who called yesterday when I was indisposed, and then get back to my book (Picture Perfect by Jodi Picoult).

Wow! I just love it when you can feel movement externally as well as internally. It's amazing!

Peace, my friend.

when you say 25 weeks to schedule...what? labor? or a 4d ultrasound?
