33 Weeks!

Wow. I still can't believe that I made it to March. I'm really psyched for my ultrasound tomorrow, because they'll do measurements and I'll find out the twins' estimated weights. I also wonder what my cervix looks like, but I don't think they're going to check it. My contractions have definitely calmed down since I started on antibiotics for my UTI, but I still get a few every day. (Much better than a few every hour!)

I also thought you all might want to see how awesome the complication rates are at 33 weeks (yeah that sounds weird, but I couldn't figure out a better way to put it):

Survival: 96%
Respiratory Distress Syndrome: 34%
Intraventricular Hemorrhage: 0% (yay!)
Sepsis: 5%
Necrotizing Enterocolitis: 2%
Intact, long-term survival: 96%

Not bad, eh? And I'm not really worried about respiratory distress because I had the steroid shots last week. Woooo!
