I had my 28 week checkup this morning - everything is looking good - I'm measuring 34 weeks! And I had my gestational diabetes test - I should hear tomorrow if I didn't pass. Someone will be calling today to get me a date for my c-section! I go again for a check up at 31 weeks, and then I start going every 2 weeks, and getting non-stress tests on the twins 2 times a week.
Good thing I have an understanding boss.
Speaking of work, I decided on what I'm going to do for my maternity leave. With Hulk, I saved up all my vacation, and then used it to come back part time for the first month. Which, turns out, was awful. It was like I had to go back to work twice. Once part time and then full time. So this time, I was just trying to decide if I should take my vacation before the twins come or after. I was having trouble deciding if I should take the 2 weeks off before my scheduled c-section? To relax and also assuming it's going to be hard to move around by that point. Or after - so I can spend more time with the twins? It's a hard call - but my manager said we did it wrong last time - that before I can go out on disability (aka maternity leave), I'm technically supposed to use up all my vacation. So that pretty much answered it for me. I guess I could start the vacation the day of my c-section, but I just think taking the time before they arrive is a good idea.
My last day at work is Nov 16th (assuming my c-section is the 30th - I'll find out that today)! Of course, that is the best case scenario - who knows what is going to happen with the end of this pregnancy... but it's good to have a plan. So, I'm off work in less than 2 months! Seems like this pregnancy is flying by. Now we need to get working on the nursery....
