37 Weeks (or) Term

After reading about and speaking with many moms of twins, I never thought I would see 37 weeks.
Especially not 37 weeks with no bed rest or complications.

But here we are at full-term, and finally our first complication.
(Only a complication in terms of comfort; both I and the babies are completely safe. )

No one is quite sure what is causing it, but the persistent itchy irritation I have (and 48 hours with about 2 hours of sleep) drove me to go see the Dr. again today.

The doctor prescribed a powder that is supposed to relieve symptoms, and she had me give some blood so they could run some labs.

The Dr. thinks my liver might have become overtaxed having to function for three, and that might be causing the rash.

The results of the blood test will be available Monday morning and will tell us whether my liver is working normally or not.
If the results say that my liver is normal, we'll keep on trucking to Nov 1. If the results are anything else but normal, the doctor will perform the c-section right away. 
Thanks to all of you who have taken an interest or offered a kind word of support during this crazy process.  

We're so close to having these precious babies in our arms!
