37 weeks – Eviction Notice Served

I can’t believe I am 37 weeks and these babies have not budged!  I definitely thought they would be here by now.  They are both around 3.0kgs, nice and big for twins….but what a load to carry! Although they have dropped and both heads are down low, my lungs and stomach are in my throat!

So we have a Caesar scheduled for Wednesday, unless I go into labour ahead of time.  My Dr decided to go overseas to a conference this week (without telling me!) so I am kind of freaking out.  Although his stand in is an amazing OB with a tonne of experience, so I am in good hands regardless, but you still want your own Dr.  

I have been on leave for two weeks now, although work keeps calling me.  It is nice to be needed, but I really need to focus on these babies now.  I am hoping that when the babies come, work will leave me alone for a bit.  I have been able to rest and sleep and just completely zone out most of the time, which has been amazing knowing all the work and sleepless nights that are coming.

I am still in shock that there are two babies!  Still so unreal.  Anyways, next post will hopefully be the birth story.  Gosh it goes by fast…I have loved being pregnant, but so ready for babies to be outside of me now. I want my body back please 🙂

34 weeks…they will be here very soon!

So a lot of time has passed since my last post.  I am now 34 weeks and my last day of work is tomorrow.  It is just getting too difficult to drive, sit, move…breath!  It has really only been since 32 weeks that I have gotten so big and uncomfortable.

I still can’t believe I am about to have twins!  It is all so surreal.  But we are ready, or as ready as we will ever be.  I am more worried about my 2 year old and how he will manage.  His whole world is about to get very crazy…but he is pretty easy going – for a toddler – so hoping that will continue once babies arrive.

We are monitoring babies weekly now.  They are both measuring nicely, around 2.5kgs and growing every week.  Their growth hasn’t really slowed yet.  They were monitoring me for preeclampsia but nothing they are concerned with so far.  I am having a lot of pelvic pain, so just trying to take it slow.

I can’t really complain.  I have had (another) amazing pregnancy even though carrying twins is definitley more challenging than a singleton.  But I haven’t had any complications and babies are doing well.

So I am hoping for a few days of sleep next week before these babies come.  So hoping they stay put for another week.
