37 Weeks

image    Almost 37 Weeks!

Nothing covers the belly at this point! Wearing pajama pants and Dusty’s shirt…good thing I have no where to go. Measures 45 1/2″ around!!! Only gained 40 pounds though! I am hoping it will be a little easier to lose the weight this time since I didn’t gain nearly as much as I did with the girls!

I went to the Phx doctor yesterday. Everything is looking good and I have been given the okay for delivering at any point. I will be 37 weeks tomorrow! The boys are 6 lb 7 oz and 6 lb 4 oz. If nothing happens before Monday, which is the scheduled cesarean, I am sure they will be a little bigger than that.  The ultrasound weights are just an estimate and could be off a little bit. The tech said that they are squished but there is still enough fluid for them to grow even more! They aren’t slowing down either…still moving around like crazy. We can see the hair on their heads and the rolls of fat! We also saw the lungs working and the hearts beating. They have also been having the hiccups much more often these days. These two are going to be just fine! :)

As for me, I am very ready! I don’t know how I possibly made it this far but I did and now that I know its safe for them to be born they can come any day and I’ll be ready. I don’t think there is any part of my body that isn’t sore…I can feel baby in my ribs and down kicking my bladder at the same time! I haven’t been able to eat a lot either, small portions is all I can handle.  I have been having a really hard time sleeping the past two nights. I have cramping when I lay down. I ended up sleeping propped up half of the night last night. The dr said it could be a sign that they are getting ready to come but I have a feeling they are just going to wait it out. I guess we will just have to wait and see. At any rate we know they will be here by this time next week!
