27 Weeks

We are 27 weeks today. We got great news at the doctor this week. Kourtney (the recipient) now has a normal level of fluid!!! PTL!!! Her heart looks normal - no thickening of the walls could be seen. What a miracle. In theory, this should have happened shortly after the surgery but for some reason it did not so our doctor seemed to think that maybe it wouldn't. But, things have changed. The doctor said if he was seeing us for the first time he would think it was a normal twin pregnancy. He also said that he would "bet" that we would make it past 31 weeks (which was sort of our goal after the surgery). Yeah!! Ken and I are a little cautious about getting too excited. We want to make sure that it was not just a random thing or that it doesn't continue to go down and end up too low. The doctor says we really need to see how things look next week and then he will have a better idea of whether the fluid level is stable. As our OB said - 27 weeks is great but we still have a long way to go. So, the dreaded bedrest is working - I guess I'll stop complaining now. There are pictures of each girl and the last picture is of both girls and they look like the are fighting. I hope it is not a sign of things to come!
