Well, I’m only about 4 weeks away from delivering these 2 babies! The last 2 weeks have been ROUGH! Hayden tested positive for the flu and 2 days later I came down with the same symptoms.
I was having a lot of trouble breathing, keeping anything down and just feeling rotten so I headed to the hospital, per my doctor. They ended up admitting me and I spent 4 nights in the hospital on antibiotics and getting better. I still feel yucky with my cough, congestion and achy body, but glad to be home and in my own bed.
So, you get this lovely picture of me at 34 weeks – no makeup, hair up but wow, has my belly gotten bigger! I’m measuring at 40 weeks now.
How Far Along:
34 weeks, 3 Days!
Total Weight Gain:
Up 21 pounds.
How Big Are The Babies?
We had a growth ultrasound last Friday which showed Baby A at 5 pounds, 3 ounces and Baby B at 4 pounds, 15 ounces! Such great weights! I know ultrasounds can be off about a pound, but I hope they are not.
Nothing in particular!
– Exhaustion: I had been reading about the 3rd trimester exhaustion and it’s hit me HARD. I’m sure a lot of it is combined with the fact that I’m getting over the flu/bronchitis plus carrying around 10+ pounds of babies, but I am TIRED! I just want to sleep all the time!
My last growth ultrasound on Friday showed that the babies are doing really good! Baby A is still breech and Baby B is head down. I’m wondering if Baby A will still have time to flip!
This Week, We’re Talking About…
The Delivery! Since Baby A is still breech, we went ahead and scheduled a c-section date with my doctor. I still hope Baby A flips, but if not, these two girls are coming on February 25th. I’ll be 38 weeks, 2 days so while I’m sure I will be absolutely MISERABLE, these babies will hopefully be good weights and no NICU time!
I am getting NST’s twice a week and an ultrasound once a week in addition to seeing my OB once a week. Whew! So many appointments!
4 weeks left!
