One Year ago today

This is from my journal one year ago
"I had my dr appointment today. He's not really worried about Ellie's growth. He said it could just be that she's small and a girl. BUT the Peri has decided he wants them out two weeks earlier than planned sooooo they changed the date to
April 17th!!
I'm a little freaked out. 14 days from today. I can't believe it. I'm a little nervous because that will put them here at 35w6d instead of 37w5d. I am praying they don't have to spend much time in the NICU.

I have a NST on Mon and then another one the next Mon. My next dr appt is next Friday.

I'm not sure how I feel about the whole thing yet. I'm still just scared but excited.
Then later
"I think I'm warming up to the idea. I am still a little freaked/stressed/nervous about it. I think my main concern is that they are going to be here before 36 weeks and that was the magic number in my head. I just have to keep telling myself that it's only ONE day before 36 weeks. I'm still just praying they are ok and there isn't any NICU time or if there is it's just a couple days while I am in the hosp as well. I guess at this point only time will tell. I wonder if it would be worth it to ask for the steriod shots to ensure their lungs are mature? or if it's too late at this point.."
I can't believe it's been a year. They are here and healthy. They didn't have to spend any time in the NICU. It's been an amazing, overwhelming, crazy year.
We are having the twin's first birthday party next Saturday. I still have so much to do to get ready for it.

Congrats on making it through that first year! That was a magic milestone for me, it go so much easier after they turned one.

Curious, did you end up getting the steroid shot? I had mine at 35w6d too and I'm sure I've mentioned, Adam was in the NICU for 3 long weeks. You are a lucky duck!
