34 Weeks

 Happy happy 34 weeks babies! It's wonderful we've made it this far!

The clock is counting down and we (including my doctor) think these not so little babies are going to arrive in the next two weeks or so. I say not so little because when I saw my specialist today, baby boy weighed 5lbs 5oz and baby girl weighed 5lbs 3oz. Holy! They are growing beautifully despite the fact I can't seem to gain more weight. 

My doctor also confirmed that I will be delivering in an OR just in case. She will try to deliver vaginally even if little girl is breech, but they're both head down now. It's unlikely they'll move because it's so crowded in there plus gravity is helping to pull the heaviest part of their bodies down. When I hear c-section I just shrug and think whatever. Not that I'm being careless, I just know there are so many different scenarios (like vaginal birth for Baby A and c-section for Baby B...yuck) that I don't want to get myself set on things happening a certain way. I'm keeping my mind free of thinking or wanting the birth to happen a certain so that I'm not disappointed. Whatever will get them here safest sounds good to me. 

I'm still drinking TONS of water and peeing a billion times a day. I'm glad I enjoy drinking water so much because it helps to build important tissues, assists in circulating nutrients, aids in digestion, and helps with maintaining a good amount of amniotic fluids. I seriously think water and toilet paper companies should consider sponsoring me! 

Also, I now realize that "pregnancy brain" is 100% real. I'm forgetful and can't seem to make basic brain connections. It's ridiculous. Nesting is also 100% real. My last day of work was last Friday (yes!!!) and ever since then I've been running around like a chicken with its head cut off preparing everything for these babies. I have a never-ending list of things to do before they arrive. I'm constantly organizing, cleaning, and shopping. I seriously feel like a crazy woman. I think the only thing keeping me sane is when I can squeeze an episode of Gilmore Girls into my day ;) 

34 Weeks

How far along? 34 Weeks 3 Days 
Babies are the size of: A loaf of bread!
Total weight gain:'s pathetic. 
Maternity clothes?  Yes. Even some of my maternity shirts are having a hard time covering my huge belly.
Stretch marks? Still zero. Perhaps it could do with how well I'm keeping myself hydrated. 
Sleep: Sleep involves about 9 pillows at night and little girl always decides to nestle up in my ribs. So it's still not very good. 
Exercise: About 3-4 days a week.
Miss Anything: Traveling...I'm getting that itch to go somewhere. 
Movement: Lots and lots. I don't know if it's his position, but baby boy seems a lot more active. 
Food cravings: Water, water, water!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!
Labor Signs: Braxton hicks.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy :)
Looking forward to: These babies coming! Who knows when exactly, but it's getting closer and closer!

Oh, and this is how I feel.


  1. I LOVE YOUR BLOG POSTS! You look so great! Everyone here is wondering if they'll come sooner than later. Thanks for all your help and best of luck with the little ones when they come! I hope you recover quickly and the adjustment isn't too difficult. Since you left, they set my goal as the amount you and I would've recruited together! Should be fun! :)

    1. I'm definitely hoping they'll come sooner than later! And don't worry about the got this! Plus this season is the best for recruiting. Hope all is going well over there :)

  2. Aww you look fabulous. It's so close and you've grown so much in a short time. Babies are clearly getting what they need. Water is good I like it the colder the better.
