The pressure is on...or low...or something.

Well, as Niki posted, we had quite the surprise last week at the u/s! I think it's been a welcome surprise though and I love that I can now call these little ones by their names!

I've been having a tough time, but I'm hanging in there. I almost passed out again this morning in class. (Yes, this has happened in the past.) I missed the test I studied all weekend for, but obviously the teachers were very understanding and said I can finish it later. They insisted I get checked out and bring a release back before clinicals on Wednesday. So I did and they (the nurses and the doc) think it's just the pressure from the babies lowering my blood pressure and keeping blood from getting to my brain. I'm still not 100% convinced it's not partially my blood sugar, but I'll talk to Dr. K more about that Thursday at my appt. They said there's nothing I can really do about it, but the nurse suggested standing up or changing positions every 30 minutes or so. Normally, that's not an issue, but it might be kinda hard to do during lecture. Guess I'll just have to take more breaks. ;)

I have cut pretty much everything from my life, with the exception of school, my family, and the pregnancy, but I know that's still a lot. David and the kids have been pretty good about letting me sit on my butt when I'm at home and save my energy for school. I'm trying so hard to make it through this semester. Part of me wishes I could just give up, but I'm already half way there. It's one thing if the dr says I HAVE to, but I'll be so angry at myself if I just do it on my own. My dr says I'm doing just fine though and that I just have to adjust to the uncomfortableness of twins. I think I can, I think I can, I think I :)

On the upside, I've been feeling these babies move a at least I know they're doing well. I feel like I whine so much that I must appear very unhappy, but I really am happy. It's great to know the babies are thriving! And seeing Niki's and Nathan's expressions at the ultrasounds and reading their posts make me smile ear to ear. :D

Hang in there LD. You are doing great carrying the twins. You're so close to getting to the end of the semester. You can do it!!!

I'm keeping you and the babies in my thoughts and prayers all the time.
