26 weeks today!

Today is 26 weeks!

The fluid levels are “stable” – when we went in on Monday, they were about the same as they were the week before. I’m resting as much as I can and cutting back on working. I officially canceled the wedding I was scheduled to shoot next weekend, which was tough, but I know it was for the best. My doctor didn’t think I should do it; even without the fluid issue, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have lasted an hour.

I feel the babies move a lot. I don’t know if they ever sleep. At our sonogram on Monday, the sonographer said they were the most entertaining babies she’d ever seen, the way they’re always flipping around and switching positions. The one with lots of fluid has enough room to stretch her legs completely – not exactly what you picture with babies still on the inside. I can see them moving when I look at my stomach, which is truly bizarre. Sometimes I’m just dying to know what’s going on in there, because it looks like advanced gymnastics or something.

One of them was kicking the other one in the face again. Poor baby. We’re a little worried about what they’re going to be like when they arrive – hopefully not the hyper, violent children they seem to be now!

I can’t believe we’re 10 weeks away. We’re making progress on the nursery, and I’ll try to post pictures of that soon, for all of you out-of-towners (like 90% of you).
