35 Weeks!!!!!

You guys! 35 weeks! I’m still pregnant! Babies are looking good, both got 8/8 on BPP test this morning. The docs did an internal check and I am clooooosed. So now, the docs are now predicting …. FULL TERM TWINS!! Can you believe it? I know most pregnant women who are huge like me (12 lbs of baby in there!) might be disappointed to hear that but I am actually relieved to know that they have the opportunity to continue baking to 37-38 weeks. Sure, it’s getting uncomfortable and laying down flat on my side at night is no longer an option thanks to heartburn that medication can’t even touch, but I want healthy, chubby, full term babies!

There are just so many things that can go wrong with twin pregnancies and I tried so hard to not worry about them early on, and just focused on taking good care of myself and the babies. I am so thankful my body is capable of this. I can do this for 2-3 more weeks. I might not be able to get out of bed, but I can do this!

Next Friday we’ll have another growth scan (we didn’t do one today) and see how they’re fattening up. If things aren’t progressing by 37 weeks, we’ll start talking about induction which would be scheduled around 38 weeks (7/22).

Oh, and when I go outside these days, I’m quite the spectacle. People stop me left and right asking Are you okay? or they just stop and stare and I overhear them say Woah! or Any day now!. And everyone says You’re carrying so high! and I’m like, Duh! There’s two in there! But my most favorite comment is OMG! You can’t even tell you’re pregnant from behind!. I guess this is only the beginning of the attention, right? Once I’m pushing around two fatties in a stroller, there will be even more random convos with strangers. I don’t mind, though. As long as people don’t touch the babies, that is.

Yay for 35 weeks! I will meet the two new loves of my life this month!
