Soooo Close!

I almost felt like we’d never get here.  But I’m just a few short days away from 36 weeks!  I’m so happy I was able to get this far (and hopefully a few more weeks).

I’m huge.

34 Weeks – Go Cowboys!!

35 Weeks

I don’t know how I’m going to keep getting bigger.  The Nuggets are supposed to gain approximately an ounce a day!  I’m done stretching.  These lil guys are always in my ribcage.  I think I’ve “dropped” because the pressure/pain in my pelvic area is intense.  It actually made me laugh when I was getting out of the truck for a doctor’s appointment yesterday because it’s astounding how much it can ache.

We’ve scheduled a C-section for Oct 22nd at noon.  I’m hoping my body will start going into labor naturally by then since I stop the Procardia this week.  Even with the meds, I’ve had tons of Braxton Hicks, so who knows how I’ll progress from here.

Even being this far along.  Even with all the punches, kicks and rolls coming from my very swollen belly, sometimes I still cannot believe it.  I’m pregnant.  The babies are almost here!

I was supposed to be pregnant years ago.  I was supposed to have an easy, fitness focused pregnancy.  Not wait 5+ years.  No IVF.  No bed rest.  Regardless, God is good.  He knows better than me.  I’m more patient.  I’m more mature.  My career is in a better place.  My faith was definitely rocked over the five years we were trying to conceive and I feel badly about it but I’ve reminded myself that it was never up to me and my grand plan.

Anywhere in the next week and half (up to Oct 22), we will finally meet our twin boys and have the family I’ve been dreaming about.
