32 weeks!

The babies are each almost 5 pounds already!!! Seriously people, that’s almost TEN POUNDS of baby! I am baking some fatties!

I got to see them practice breathing. So cute! Both babies are still head down which is absolutely fantastic. The only “birth plan” I have is vaginal delivery. I don’t care about anything else except avoiding having to recovering from a major abdominal surgery while handling two newborns. Now, I’m fully aware that things could still go wrong and a c-section may be needed, but I’d rather not think about it.

My cervix is getting a little shorter (but apparently normal), which means their entrance into the world is getting nearer, but so far the plan is to continue as I have been. No real concerns, everything is as it should be. I have no complaints, but 10 pounds of baby plus NYC subways plus 90+ degree weather isn’t cool. Needless to say, I took taxis a little more often this week. I’m still going to work in the mornings and then feet up in the afternoons.

One new thing I’ve noticed: my perky boobs that were larger than they’ve ever been are now starting to get bigger and heavier, giving in to a downward pull. Gravity, I think it’s called. 🙂 Not as cute, but looks like I’m getting prepared to be the primary food source for meh babies!

Weekly appointments from here on out! Six weeks to go to 38 weeks!
