Sort of bulleted update for 33w…
Both babies scored 8/8 on their BPP test this morning! Go babies! They’re both still head down.
While I was there, they also did the group b strep test. Hopefully that comes back negative.
I am up 0 pounds from last week.
Cervical length checks stop at 32w, but I talked the doc into one this week anyway for peace of mind. Little did I know it was going to be MANUAL! The dude shoved his hand up in there and used his fingers to check my cervix! I wasn’t quite prepared for that. In the end, I’m still closed so that’s good.
My doctor said he’d guess we’re having babies at 36w. People!!! That’s only three weeks from today! I’m going to bet against him, though, and go for 37-38w.
I’m still doing half days in the office through next week, but starting the week after I’ll be working from home full time till the babies come. (I need something to keep me busy!) Yay!
I am alllllmost done with my nesting. I still need to order a sling and our stroller (both are picked out already). I need to also order my belly compression band.
I have my first pimple since about 16w or so. Changing hormones?
Heartburn has been awful this week. I have to sleep sitting up. (Still, I’ll take it! This pregnancy has been a breeze!)
Holy shit! They’re going to be here soon! I can’t wait to meet them, but I hope it’s later rather than sooner.
My belly is 45″ around. Thankfully, my ass is not.
One week until my next appointment. BPP and growth scan. I love seeing them so often.
I saw the phrase “elderly multigravida” next to my name today. Yep, elderly. 35 is ooooold. And multigravida means I have been pregnant more than once. Not sure if that means I’m doubly pregnant now or if they count my blighted ovum last spring. Either way, that’s an ugly phrase. I much prefer AMA.
I’m gonna put up a poll. I’m curious what you guys think I’m having. 🙂
