Coasting-

Well, we're 34 weeks today. My OB said that at this point, should I spontaneously go into labor on my own, they wouldn't stop things. So the babies could be here anytime within the next 32 days. I'm down to weekly appointments, and they want to begin internal cervical checks at my next appointment. Next week is my last growth scan with MFM. We are chugging right along. Here's belly shots from weeks 4, 14, 24, to 34... it's a little crazy.
We're still sick. V has an ear infection on top of his cold, I'm still hacking a lot and on antibiotics, and A just came down with it a couple days ago. I think I'm on the mend, I have gotten a little more sleep anyway. V is doing much better at least, he's hardly coughing in his sleep at all anymore. The other night I was getting up every hour between my coughing, needing to blow my nose, use the bathroom, or V waking up coughing/crying. Sleep is important, mm'kay? I'm really hoping we're all better soon, and that we DON'T (prettyprettyplease) CATCH ANYTHING ELSE!

All our preparation for the babies was put on hold because no one was feeling well, plus we didn't want to get everything all germy either. We had been having a family member come over to help with the painting, but had to postpone that so they wouldn't catch this cough. I'm feeling a bit better now though, so hopefully I can get caught back up on the housework a little today and we can resume where we left off very soon. While I know they don't need a lot right away, and even if they came today they'd be in the hospital for a bit, I am getting a little antsy about everything that still needs done. We haven't washed any of the clothes from the attic, cleaned the bassinets, opened the car seats to look them over, gotten the breast pump out and re-cleaned, bottles down (just in case), so on and so on... I mean we have everything together and would make do as we needed things, I'd just rather have it done and over with ahead of time.

I've been following you for years and I'm so excited about these babies. Hope y'all are feeling 100% soon. Hang in there!

Thank you!

Yup twice weekly OB appts here. They said to me just yesterday that if I don't go into labor for my singleton by week 39 they are going to induce. I'd rather go to week 40 but I do understand their concerns. With you carrying two babies I can understand why they'd not want to make you wait much longer either.

I am thinking of you! It's slowly calming down here. I am praying for the five of you. I am so happy you've made it this far!

Rebecca, I understand wanting to make it to 40. It still blows my mind how far along you are now :) With twins and a previous c-section they won't let me go past 38, ideally these two will stay in until closer to then but at least if they come now they should be in pretty good shape.

Celia, thank you! Glad things are calming down on your end!

I hope everyone is feeling better soon!! I can't believe you're 34 weeks already!! Sorry to hear V had an ear infection too. My little two get them a lot and sleep is the first thing to go with those. Ugh
