So I had a routine appointment with my doctor today, everything looks great with the twins (good news), but apparently I am a week less far along than I thought (bad news). I thought my doctor would go off the size of the twins for the due date (seeing as how that's what he did with Macey), but he is sticking with the original due date...bummer. Here is how our conversation went after that.
Me: Should I be concerned that the twins are measuring big seeing as how Macey was 9lbs. 6 oz?
OB: Nope, you shouldn't be concerned about anything. In fact, I delivered twins last week that were both over 8 lbs.
Me: (Thinking to myself)...maybe it wasn't clear that my concern is that I am going to have carry two huge babies...not whether or not you can deliver them...
Don't get me wrong, I want nothing more than to carry these babies long enough so that they are fully developed, but the thought of having 16 lbs. of baby inside me is a little overwhelming!

We recently moved Macey into a big girl bed and she loved it. I loved it too. I could lay down by her instead of having to rock her to sleep. Things were going great until Macey realized she could get out of her big girl bed. I am not opposed to having her come and sleep with me when she wakes up too early, or even going to sleep in her bed with her, but she won't do either. I have tried positive reinforcement, but that is definitely not working. I am not sure how I feel about putting a lock on her door. I know a lot of parents do it, but I just don't know how I feel about it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks...
