I can’t believe I made it to this point. Its surreal. My pregnancy went incredibly fast. Everyone keeps asking me if I am just done being pregnant at this point, and really the answer is no. I mean I am uncomfortable and I am ready to be able to be more independent, and of course I am so excited to meet my girls, but we are not having more kids so this is my only time being pregnant and I am just trying to savor the last few days. I just don’t want to wish away a minute of this whole experience.
Thank you everyone for all of the support over the past year. You have been amazing and I am so grateful for you all.
How Far along: 37 Weeks 4 Days. ONE WEEK UNTIL MY C-SECTION
Total Weight Gain: 36 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Yes. Also my husband’s gym shorts and t-shirts around the house or to sleep in.
Movement: Yes. Pretty much all the time. And lots of hiccups.
Stretch marks: No
Sleep: The past few days it has been way better. I have been able to go to sleep around midnight and sleep for up to 2 and a half hours at a time. This is magic compared to the previous weeks when I was sleeping only 3-4 broken hours per night.
Best moments: I am so grateful that my NST’s have gone well. I also had our last meet up with the pregnant moms (until our babies are here) in our twin mom group. I was really uncomfortable but I am so happy I went.
I had my last appointment with my OB this week before the babies arrive. She told me again that I was meant to carry twins. I am so insanely grateful for what an easy pregnancy this has been overall, especially after 16 weeks.
Miss Anything: Bending over. Being able to just do what I need to do without help.
Food Cravings: Still ICE!
Anything make you feel queasy or sick: no
Labor signs: A few Braxton hicks here and there but that’s it. I haven’t had any contractors during my NSTs at all.
Symptoms: Hip pain on the right side. Heartburn. Insomnia. I pretty much can’t sit up straight at all without it hurting. My back aches when I am on my feet for too long. Slight swelling in my fingers.
Belly Button: WAY OUT
Wedding Rings: Off
Mood: Overall happy.
Looking Forward to: Meeting my babies in the next week.
