Whew! We made it through 31 weeks and boy has it been a bit of a doozy! After my last pregnancy post, we had been so fortunate with a primarily uneventful twin pregnancy...now 2 hospital stays later, an order to be on a non-bedrest, bedrest and a new appreciation for keeping these babes "in the oven" for as long as possible, has us, once again, counting our blessings and feeling oh so lucky!
While this past month brought on its fair share of apprehensions and fears, I can honestly say, that I'm now so excited to meet these two little ones! Our current goal is to make it to the 34 week mark along with a minimum weight of 5lbs each. Each day currently feels like a mini-victory and each week makes this mama-to-be breath a big sigh of relief! I swear this bump is growing daily (which means the babies are growing!!!), but if this keeps up, this bump is going to need its own zip code...I mean, look at this thing!
So, you better be sure I'll be documenting this bump over the next few weeks ~ who knows when it will be my last pregnancy pic?! And speaking of documenting, how incredibly cute are these Printable Weekly Pregnancy Signs from Bella Carta Boutique!! They're perfect for those weekly bump photos, or like I plan to use them for, would make a great addition to your pregnancy journal/scrapbook.
Well, I'm off to another doctor's appointment, these days they have me there a few times a week. Fingers crossed these babies are putting on some serious weight! In the meantime, thanks again for all your support, patience & encouragement as we make it through this pregnancy! xo
