31 Weeks Pregnant | Twins

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

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

  1. You look fantastic Michelle! Best wishes for a "relaxing" and "uneventful" next few weeks! :) - Nicole Loranger

  2. You look amazing, momma! I know how hard those last weeks are, and how stressful it is to hit each weekly milestone and weight check. You're doing GREAT, and these babies are lucky to have a mom that cares so much for their health and well-being. And, thank you for the sweet words about my signs! It makes my heart SO happy to know other moms are using them to document this incredible time in their lives! XO

    1. Love, Love, Love the signs Jillian ~ such a great, easy & beautiful way to document this journey! Great idea girl!! xo

  3. You look fabulous Michelle! Sorry to hear that you landed in the hospital but it sounds like those babes are cookin' real nice! Can't wait for your updates!

  4. You look wonderful! Cross your legs and take care of yourself and those growing babies.

  5. my twins turned ten on sunday and i've been where you are. stay in bed except to go to the doctor. trust me there is nothing more important than making it through the next two weeks, no work that needs to be done, no laundry, no cooking, no nothing. i was put on bedrest with our twins at 26 weeks and our goal too was to make it to 34 weeks. that was the magic number we heard all pregnancy long. i remember packing the outfits to bring them home with us, we thought they would come home immediately with us. long story short (and i can email you the long version if you want) two days before our 34 week mark we did our nightly monitoring (a precaution by our doctor) and the nurse called back to tell us that I'd had like 20 contractions in the ten minutes of monitoring. i just thought i was heavily pregnant and feeling bad. turns out i had HELLP syndrome and not to scare you, i promise you that's not what i'm trying to do, but seriously you're cooking two, your body needs to rest right now. so if they tell you non-bedrest bedrest GO TO BED. stay hydrated with lots of water. let your husband and family or whomever take care of you while you take care of the babies. best of luck. you look BEAUTIFUL! get the "healthy sleep habits, happy child" twins edition book and read that for the next few weeks in bed of course :) its the best baby sleep book ever.


  6. Can I just say you look amazing. I am glad you are home and can enjoy your own bed. Thanks for the pregnancy update.

  7. You look great! Keep that baby bump a'growin'! I love seeing your updates as I am currently 12 weeks along with IUI twins!

    1. Linley, congrats congrats!!! You have a wonderful journey ahead of you! Sending lots of happy thoughts your way!! xo

  10. My husband and i got married in september 2009, after our wedding we expected the fruit of the womb but it wasn't forthcoming, so we went to different hospitals and met with different doctors yet nothing happened. in 2015, when i was surfing online i came in contact with Mother Iya fertility help. we engaged in all the outreached of she helping me get pregnant and prayed kingdom advancement prayers. Towards the end of 2015 , the doctor scheduled us for assisted conception but i refused to be used as an object of experiment anymore at the hospital. As i read Mother Iya testimonies of women she had help. i took five days to apply what she told me and use her herbs she sent me.and i remeber what Mother always say to me that you can ride on people's testimonies and it will be replicated in your life. So, i heard a testimony that struck me and the testifier also rode on another testimony. i did what Mother Iya told me and 2015 would be my last without a child. With that faith and agreement with my husband, i apply the herbal remedy and sacrifices done.in Febuary 2016, to the glory of God, i became pregnant and in October 2016, i gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. i have to give thanks to Mother Iya for the glory she uses for breaking the yoke of barrenness in my marriage. native iya contact nativeiyabasira@yahoo.com and +441133201124
