Healthy Days Are here Again

I am trying to remain healthy in this house despite the fact that E is sick and our daughter R has a runny nose. L and I are hanging on to our health, but for how long? I do not want to be pregnant and sick, I have enough problems.

In baby news, (s)he is measuring at 30 weeks, which is one week ahead of me and is already head down with a strong heartbeat. (S)he moves so much all over with I was told is because there is so much room because of my overly stretched out uterus, the outcome of having two huge twins in you for 39 weeks. I also do not have gestational diabetes despite having eaten my body weight in candy, chocolate and goodies since October.
My thyroid is functioning fine although we will have to monitor it for the rest of my pregnancy and for months after because hormone flux does wacky things to thyroids.
Now I am feeling great after this doctor's appointment and all this reassuring news.

How has your 2008 been so far?
