34 Weeks - Home Sweet Home

Made it to 34 weeks which means I will be delivering babies in Brunswick no matter what! This is the biggest mile marker we wanted to reach and we're very thankful we made it. Savannah is a great town but was NOT where we wanted to deliver...too far away and strangers for doctors.

Today's Doc's appointment was a positive one. The babies are both about 5-5.5 lbs each and very healthy. These next 2 weeks are vital for lung development so we need to keep them in...especially having a boy in there. Their lungs develop slower so that is a big concern.

I am measuring 42 weeks...in case that doesn't make sense - it equates to being 10 1/2 months pregnant! The stretching is quite miraculous. And just so Carter doesn't forget, each night before bed, I show him my side profile and demand, "FEEL SORRY FOR ME, PLEASE!"

Typically, he laughs.

I don't.

Now I'll be having 2 appointments each week until they come. I'll spend 20 minutes of each visit hooked up to a monitor so we can be certain there is no stress on the babies' hearts.

It's getting close!

I am with Kara..we want a picture! Not like we don't see you on a regular basis, but it is fun to see the babies growing! :)
