I did it!

I made it to 34 weeks! Which also means I've reached the end of my complications chart. I guess after 34 weeks the rates of pre-term complications are all nearly zero. SWEEEEET!

Survival: 97%
Respiratory Distress Syndrome: 14%
Intraventricular Hemorrhage: 0%
Sepsis: 4%
Necrotizing Enterocolitis: 3%
Intact, long-term survival: 97%

There you have it folks. And on top of it all, they should weigh nearly 5 lbs now. That means we'll be able to use the carseats we bought when we bring them home from the hospital! WOOOO! Now babies, I'm large and viciously uncomfortable. You can come out now so I can get 2 hours of pleasant, deep sleep instead of 2 hours of uncomfortable, non-deep sleep each night. :-) As much as I'd love to cook you both another two weeks, I think I might have a nervous breakdown from lack of quality sleep. Now I don't expect to have amazing sleep once you arrive...I just want the little sleep I do get to be comfortable. I also want to be able to sit and lie down comfortably instead of having a painful back 24/7. I promise to make really delicious breastmilk for you and cuddle you the way only a mommy can. And I might let your daddy hold you if he sits down first. ;-) We have really comfy cribs all ready for you and I promise not to make either of you sing the 4 questions at the Pesach seders this year. Now, isn't Purim a nice time to have a birthday? It also happens to be the full moon...
