penmillion: (newpenny)
So if you haven't seen me in person in awhile you may not know that I'm having twins. For that our family is very happy, but it has turned out to be a high-risk pregnancy because they are mo/mo, or monochorionic/monoamniotic, which is a rare condition where they share the same amnionic sac.

There are a lot of scary statistics on this out there on the 'net, but I have made it to 27 weeks with no problems whatsoever other than low iron, and I'm now checked in to Brigham and Women's hospital where I can be monitored regularly. Everything is going very well, and on Thursday's Biophysical Profile ultrasound both of the little ones got 8 out of 8 scores, doing their practice breathing, etc.

I will most likely be here until sometime in January. Later is better, but I'm here because they have a level 3 NICU that can care for pre-term babies. Every additional week I'm stuck here is better for them. I have a pile of books, a wireless connection, Netflix, hulu, a list of projects to work on and the food's not bad. If I get bored I'll take up finger weaving or learn Spanish.

I'm leaving this post open for now in case there are people who would like to know but aren't on my flist.

Questions are okay, here are a few answers:
42
identical
girls
the old fashioned way (well, plus a basal thermometer and ov. test strips)
