Bring your boots.

We had our last appointment with our OB before the big day. Everything looks good, they don’t see any reason the twins won’t be able to come home with us on Monday so that is good. They are expected to weigh in between 6 and 7 pounds each. Big babies for twins and 4 weeks early that’s for sure. We’ll take big- means they are growing well in there.

On the itching front- SARNA! I can only use it until I deliver but if it gets me through the next few days I’ll be a happy girl. The acupuncturist is going to order some herbs for me to use after we deliver. Sarna has camphor which is bad for newborns, so even though it seems like a miracle cure right now it too has an expiration date.

So, with 48 hours to go I’m still battling the itch and having a very hard time walking (cracked pelvis?) but we see the end so it’s easier to take.

Two more days!!!

Oh, and my OB said he’ll probably need to wear his boots to deal with all the fluid I’m carrying around. Funny.

    Gah! Can’t handle it. So glad to hear you’re getting some relief, at least for now, through Sarna.
