50% of twins are born by this week so hitting 36 weeks is big for us! Two more weeks and we get to meet our babies! It’s so crazy that it is so close. I could not be more ready though, I am insanely uncomfortable!
Yesterday we had two Dr’s appointments. One with Dr Guile, where we had an ultrasound to check heartbeats and I had a vaginal swab for strep (which he said since I am having a c section doesn’t apply to me but the hospital wants to have it anyways). I thought this would be a good time to see if I was dilated at all, since I had started to lose my mucus plug in the last few days and I was mostly just curious. Dr G checked my cervix, let me know that my mucus plug was gone, but that I am not dilated at all. Also, Noah is so low that he could feel his head!
I kind of wish I didn’t ask to be checked because 1. It hurt like a bitch and 2. I had some serious cramps after where I had to come home and take some Tylenol and a nap. Finding out I wasn’t dilated just wasn’t worth the pain!
Onto Dr appointment #2: we officially graduated from our MFM yesterday after our last growth scan! We got to see the boys one last time on the high def ultrasound and the Dr said everything looked great and that I had been a “great incubator.” ☺️ we also got their final weight estimates:
Noah is measuring 5 lbs 15 ounces and Zayden is measuring 6lbs 3 ounces
😳 yeah, I have a lot of baby in me. The Dr assured us that this is great and if we were to go into labor now that my chances of any NICU time would be very low. Nevertheless, I would still like to make it to my C section date. It is best for the boys to develop a little more and I would prefer Dr Guile deliver them (we all know how psycho I am about my Dr’s!).
So now we wait, for the 23rd to get here or for labor to come on its own. We are as ready as we’ll ever be to meet these little guys!
