s/c: Today is day 6 in the hopsital on bed rest for my blood pressure. The Labetalol is working to keep my bp from spiking over 160, but my base bp is in the 130s-140s. Both babies are scoring 8/8 on their anatomy scans and are very active. I am a big as a house! If baby boy is still on track, he should be about 6 lbs this week and baby girl shouled be about 5 lbs. I still get headaches and pain in my sciatic nerves.

Other: The car seats are still in their boxes!!! My husband better get busy unpacking them because we got a date scheduled for the c-section. If all goes according to plan, we will get to meet the babies on 6/27/12!!!

We went swimming at Lake Powell yesterday and it was so nice to be weightless and the cool water felt so good and refreshing.
