32 Weeks

Today we had our 32 week check-up! Things are still looking good, although I have reached the point of being incredibly uncomfortable (and it's no wonder since I'm measuring 39 weeks).

I'm dilated to a 1.5 and 50% effaced, but the boys are still sitting up high. He was pleased with this, and my taking it easy and resting has helped with only a 1/2 centimeter progression in 2 weeks. So yes, I pat myself on the back and I will continue to rest rest rest!

We start going in once a week now with a non-stress test every other week and an ultrasound on the weeks I don't have the test. I think going in once a week is going to help me push through these last few weeks.

We have decided that February 10th is when we plan on bringing these babies into the world! That is 30 days from now, or one month from yesterday! WOW!!
We all three agreed we'd like him to deliver and this is just 4 days shy of 37 weeks which was our goal! Since they are still breech and are running out of room,  it will be a c-section. Unless something crazy happens in the next 2 weeks. YES it can...but we'd be quite surprised!
I think 2-10-11 is a darn cool birth date :)

My blood pressure is great, I haven't gained much weight, no swelling or real contractions either....but they are looking good! Their little heartbeats sound wonderful and I'm dying to meet them. I'd love continued prayer that they will stay in there until the 10th, and that they will be completely healthy and have matured lungs so that we don't have to spend any time in the NICU!

Our bags are packed, everything is ready for them so now we wait.......

  6. Hang in there, you are doing terrific! 32 weeks is such a great place to be with relatively few issues! If you can make it to nearly 37 weeks that will be fantastic..that's how far I made it with the last set and while I was ready to split in half, they were a healthty 5lbs 4oz and 6lbs 4oz. Once they come out you can't even imagine how they fit inside you....it's crazy!!!
