4 weeks to go!

Happy Tuesday!

My mom is 33 weeks today— only 4 more weeks to go!

  
They had an appointment with the MFM yesterday (high risk doctor)- Cuatro weighs 4lbs and Cinco weighs 4lb 7oz (but the tech said its because Cinco has a bigger head- dad said that one must take after my mom).  The tech said she can see hair on Cuatro’s head!!

Mom is having pain where she had her previous c-sections, but the dr said we need to keep them cooking as long as possible.  If the pain gets worse- she needs to go in… The dr said he will be surprised if they make it 4 more weeks, but anything is possible!

Mom also had to have an NST (non-stress test).  They monitor her contractions and the babies’ heart rates for 20 minutes.  Everything looked great and heart rates ranged from 125 to 160! Busy babies!!

  
Things are starting to get crazy around here- dad has been busy redoing my room.  Mom has been “nesting” and cleaning things I’ve never seen her clean (like the laundry room floor boards!!) Car seats are out and ready to be installed and mom has her bag packed.  I’ve been busy watching Paw Patrol and hanging out with my Daddy- I will keep you all updated! (Oh- and mom gained 12 lbs in 4 weeks- guess all that ice cream she’s eating is paying off)

30 weeks- feeling grateful

  
Mom’s turn!

Hit 30 weeks on Tuesday! Huge milestone with the scare we had.  The great thing is that even though the contractions are continuing- nothing else is happening!! So both my OB and MFM (high-risk) think they are staying put for right now.  Even got clearance to go relax at our camper!(keyword:relax)

I’m feeling great! Tired…but great.  I am enjoying every minute of this last pregnancy. 

Prepping for delivery now.  Talked it through with my OB and I can only hope things go as planned! Sounds like there will be quite a team of people in there for me and both babies! Thankfully the hospital I am delivering at promotes a “natural” c-section.  As soon as the babies are born and tests are done- I will get to do skin to skin time with both of them while they finish the surgery.  Then they will come with me to the recovery room so I can nurse right away and spend time bonding.  This is so different then what it used to be.  I don’t think I saw Aiden for almost an hour and a half after his c-section. 

Feeling so blessed for everyone that has been helping us.  From food, to watching the kids or spending time at the house helping us get caught up.  It has truly been so helpful.  Thank so much.  We are so grateful. 

7 weeks to go!!
