I have an u\s on Monday to check the weights as I'll be nearing 33 weeks (next to last one - oh my!). I'm hoping they're over 4 lbs by now. I can't wait to see them (hope to get the 3D-4D view too).
My goal is to make it to 35 weeks, then the next goal is 37. At 37, I'm begging them to enter the world.
How is everyone doing?
Well, prg.org blocked me out like it has done with so many women over the past few months. I emailed them twice, but received no response. GRRR. So I made this new name (but am I kind of bummed because I was at 512 posts with my other!). I will try to get back to the other username once they help me fix it!
U/S went well. Both babies are head down, so vaginal birth looks like a go as long as they stay that way and stay in a little longer (~2 weeks). Baby A is 4 lbs 13 oz. and Baby B is 4 lbs 4 oz (her head is smaller than Baby A's haha). I can't believe I have over 9 lbs of baby in me!!! (I can't believe Erica birthed almost 15 lbs of baby!!!).
That was my last U\S, so now it's doctors appointments only. I have one Monday (I'll be almost 34 weeks), so I don't know if they'll start doing cervix checks or just asking me questions. BHs are definitely picking up at this point. We'll see when I move to weekly appointments. But, on a good note, I feel less miserable because the babies have dropped!
OK, gonna read and catch up on everyone!
Yay for a great appt and Yay for vaginial. If I was able to birth just Vaginially then I would have had little to no recovery needed from the birth. No stitches, no pain, nothing. Probably because they were so small. My guys were about the same size at my 34 weeks as your Lil girls. The misery comes and goes. And I'll warn you the last couple of weeks suck! Are you still working? I only worked for another week and then had to take myself off. It so hard getting up and working a full day. You're doing great. Hang on, theres only a few more weeks left. It's funny because i can remember when you started posting and you were only a few weeks a long and here you are getting ready to pop these babies out. Poor DH with two girls. He's going to be the protective daddy!
I'm still working. I billed over 200 hours last month and had an additional 30 non-billiable hours, meaning I was working close to 60 hours a week. I'm trying to slow down, but there is just too much to do to get ready for leave. I honestly can't wait until maternity leave. Although there will be new stresses, it will be for a good reason and not work related stress! I'm going to try to cut it down to 40 hours a week, then start leave on February 24 if they aren't here yet!
Everyday gets a little harder, but it's not BAD yet - just exhausted. So I'm thankful for that....
Stop working so hard, lady! You need to take it easy. Glad to hear you'll be off soon. I don't know how you function working 60 hrs a week with, I imagine, no sleep. When you're off, put your feet up and enjoy yourself. How long do you get for maternity leave?
