35 Weeks 4 Days

I have always been competitive, but this is ridiculous. I have now made everyone stop giving me goals to hit before these babies are born. At 29 weeks I was admitted to the hospital for preterm labor and our doctor said we had a goal of 32 weeks. Twenty-one days later we were discharged with both babies still tucked safely in my womb. As we were leaving the nurse said she would see us in JULY when our babies would be born (it was June 7th). I chuckled and thought, “There is NO WAY we will make it until July.”

Our doctor said we should try to make it to 34 weeks. And then to 35 weeks.

And here we are – in JULY at 35 weeks and 4 days. All I know is these babies better come soon or I am going to explode!

It does feel like we are getting closer. All contractions are accompanied by cramping and now nausea. Yay for third trimester nausea! And plenty of other “fun” signs that labor is imminent.

Baby A is still head down and almost fully engaged (he’s at a -1 station) and Baby B is head down but a little sideways. We are still going to try to avoid a C-section for both babies.

Who knows – maybe these boys will make their arrival in the next 24 hours!
