34 Weeks

If someone would have told me at the start of this I was going to make it to 34 weeks with virtually no issues...I would have been shocked. But we have done it! Risks for babies born after 34 weeks drop significantly and it was such a great feeling to reach this milestone! We had our appointment today and so here is the rundown!

We got to see our boys on ultrasound today! Last time we got a glance was at 28 weeks. Our boys are stinkers, but we had already figured that out. We didn't get to see their faces at ALL! So..no pictures. BUT we will see them in real life very soon :)

Camden (Baby A) is breech. Duh. He looks marvelous and is weighing in at 4lbs 10oz! Such a great weight!! He has a great amount of fluid around him. The ultrasound tech said that the fluid around each boy is as much as it would be if there were only one baby in there, so I am doing a great job of taking care of my little men!

Christian (Baby B) is transverse. Basically he's lying across my belly...his head is so far over it's near my right hip! I had to lie on my side so she could measure his head!! His butt is up against Camden's feet at the moment :) He is weighing in at 4lbs 13oz!!! So they are virtually the same size! This is wonderful news! A lot of the time with twins, one starts hogging all the nutrition and outweighs the other one by a significant amount. But our boys are sharing very well right now!

Our ultrasound tech said my body is doing so good taking care of them and that I look amazing and that I was made to have babies. I love her.

I am measuring 38 weeks which is actually 2 weeks less than last week, but it can go up or down. So, I feel good about that.

I am dilated to a 3 now. So, basically I am not on bed rest, but as close as you can get.  Nothing extra. Nothing. No more little walks to the park with Jack, walking around the grocery store, or lifting Jack. I am not having pre-term labor, this is just from the weight of the pregnancy. So...no more anything for me basically. And it's so worth it to keep these boys in here!

Next week is another non-stress test and check-up, the very next week we will do one more non-stress test that Tuesday and then Thursday is the BIG DAY! Two weeks from Thursday!!

I am praying so hard that they stay in there until that day. Doing everything I know to do. We are hoping for a 5lb birth weight. I'm even praying for more! :) I'll try and get a belly shot this week....

So, that's the scoop. Jack is quite sick and so am I, so we would love your prayers in that regard as well. I am so praying Trevor doesn't get it...he's been my rock. He's so incredible.

Top Two Prayer Requests:
*Make it to the 10th
*NO NICU

  3. yay! Such great news!!! You are basically home free - that has to be such a good feeling! Do you have to do anything special to make sure the boys make it to 5 pounds or just keep doing what you are doing? 16 more days!!!
