Chunky babies!

Nearing 33 weeks! I've now been discharged from the perinatologist as well as the home-care bedrest program because I am "too stable"! That's a good thing! My last ultrasound with the peri on Thursday (32 weeks 2 days) showed that I am growing some good-sized twins! Twin A is approximately 4lbs 11oz and Twin B is approximately 4lbs 15oz! CRAZY! They are large even for singletons at this point in a pregnancy! No wonder I feel so huge! I'm thrilled though, knowing that with a short cervix, they could still come early but at least they will be good weights. The though of carrying them until 38 weeks makes me feel a little nauseous...they are going to be massive by then! Let's aim for 36-37 weeks! Although of course, the longer they stay in there, the better! Sleep is becoming nearly impossible. I am up every 1-2 hours to pee (Thank you Twin A for pressing against my bladder!) and if I don't have to pee, I am just super uncomfortable. Rolling over is like an Olympic event! I am trying my best to enjoy these last few weeks as much as possible since this will more-than-likely be my only pregnancy but it's getting harder and harder! They are definitely getting squished in there...they no longer "kick" it's more like shifting around. My belly looks like it has a couple of aliens in there some evenings!

On another note...May 21st is our 7 year wedding anniversary. Since this will be our last anniversary without children I'm trying to think of something nice we can do. Normally we would go away for a weekend (or even a longer holiday) around our anniversary but that's not going to be possible this year. I also don't have any nice clothes that fit that would allow us to go out to a fancy restaurant. Hmmm...any suggestions? I'd love to make it a special evening.

  1. How about a picnic somewhere in a nearby park? If it's too cold or you think you'd be too uncomfortable, why not at home on the living room floor?

  3. Sounds like really good news!!!!! I hear you on turning sides in bed...it is hard!!!! Maybe you could have a friend pick up some take out from your favorite restaurant and have a nice romantic dinner at home. Nice restaurants will do take out too, so don't be shy about asking them!!!

    Looks like you did a fantastic job with your bedrest. Glad to hear that both twins are doing great!
    Love the picnic idea. In a park or at home.

  5. Yay, chunky babies! What if you rented a hotel room or something? Just a night out of the ordinary.

  7. By the time you are done cookin' those babes, you'll be deserving of an Olympic gold medal for all the hard work! I'm so happy to hear the babies are doing well. I'm behind in my blog reading so just now catching up!
