And now look at where we are!
At my last appointment...I say this like I don't go to the doctor's office twice a week, they're super nice there and now the receptionists all know me so I'm checked in before I even sign in...also, I show up early for my appointments so I think they like me even more...anywho, at my last appointment, my doctor (one of the five doctors in the practice) told me that with twins once a mom hits 34 weeks they stop trying to prevent labor should I go into pre-term labor. Which means if anything goes one then these babies are coming. Yowza.
Wait, didn't I JUST find out I was pregnant and now I have to deliver these guys? Sometime soon?!?!
I have high and secret hopes that these little guys will hold off until after Christmas. It puts me at 38 weeks and I think that's a fantastic time to deliver. Actually, if they hold off that long and Thing 1 continues to be breech then I will schedule a C-section. And if I can schedule one we're shooting for December 27th. So keep your fingers and toes crossed we make it that far!
Thanksgiving was fabulous. We had several parties over the weekend so I spent much of the time with my feet up and people bringing me my favorite foods. It was wonderful. I am seriously spoiled and overwhelmed by all the love and the help.
Here I am Thanksgiving morning, just a shade under 34 weeks:
I look like I'm smuggling a turkey!
I feel good. I don't sleep well and I wake up in pain A LOT but overall I feel good. I can eat, I can walk around (if I don't sit too long then I stiffen up), I can clean my house and I still have a bit of energy left. And now that we've past the "prevent labor" part of my pregnancy there is NO WAY I will end up on bed rest which just makes me happy. I had such worries about that.
