Yay! I've survived another week! And as of next week, I'll be through that "very early pre-term" stage, which means that if the babies choose to make their arrival sooner than expected, they should be a-ok! Not that I'm planning for that :)
At my OB check this week, everything still looks really good. Great BP, strong baby heartbeats, and my cervix is still going strong! It's nice to hear all that good news.
I go next monday for another ultrasound, and I can't wait to see how big the babies are now! I'm thinking they will be around 2 lbs each. I'm continuing to gain some weight--but I guess it;s supposed to be this way. As of now, I've gained 36 pounds. Oh, and those measurements they like to do at the OB--I'm measuring 35 weeks right now! Yikes! It's no wonder I *feel* like I should be almost done with this pregnancy, when in reality I've still got a long way to go!
As for me, well, I am completely uncomfortable and not feeling up to much anything these days. The smallest outings really wear me out, so I don't go much of anywhere. Except of course, my children have places to go and things to do! So I'm running around more than I'd like, but at least it makes time go by quickly. As much as I'd like to stay home on the couch all day, I want to keep their lives as normal as possible before everything changes for all of us. So, off we go, to music classes, CCD, soccer, etc. The bad news is that my house is really suffering, as the messes pile up and the cobwebs collect in every corner. I just don't have it in me to clean.
I'm also trying to think of things I need to do to prepare fro the babies, but I'm feeling like we just need to relax and prepare mentally more than anything else. I've got the baby gear, and lots of neutral clothes for the early days. I guess I'd like to get a good pump and a decent monitor, and eventually purchase those cloth diapers, but if the babies came soon, we'd be fine
