It's a new year and I've made it past 35 weeks

Jan 02, 2013 - 0 comments

I am still expecting twin boys. I turned 35 weeks on monday, but according to medhelp I turned 35 weeks sunday.

I have not had an major issues. My OB is STILL only seeing me every 2 weeks! I saw her Dec 26 and my next appointment is Jan 9. I started weekly NSTs on Dec 20. I had my last NST yesterday (Jan 1). I am having my next NST right before my OB appointment. I have an ultrasound scheduled for January 10. My BIRTHDAY is @@January 10th@@!! My OB basically said on Dec 26, that how I will deliver is going to be determined when I have my ultrasound. Both babies were breech Dec 13 and I think they still are. I will most likely be getting a c-section.
From my own calculations, I'll be 36 wks on Jan 7, 37 on Jan 14 and 38 on Dec 21. As of right now, I don't feel like anything is happening anytime soon.
   I still have a lot to do. My DH has been working a lot. We need to get christmas decor down. We need to wash the babies clothes, at least the ones we want them coming home in. I need to pack my hospital bag. DH needs to put our oldest girls bunk beds back together. We need to clean up our bedroom for the pack n play/play yard (plan on using the bassinet part while I'm healing). I am going to try and breastfeed, but I know it's going to be a pain with my MIL staying here, but we will need her help and I am thankful she is even coming.
   Really I am stressed about going into labor on my own and not having anyone here to watch my kids, because the 2 older ones are in school. My Stepmother has made a big deal about watching her biological grandbaby for the past 6 months (She turns 1 tomorrow). And I am sure she would make some excuse about not being able to come to our house to get the girls off the bus or something. My MIL lives about 6 1/2 hours away, so she would only need to watch them until she was able to get here. I don't know. I have so much stuff to stress about and it's overwhelming.
I can not wait to meet the babies though. It's going to be exciting seeing our girls get to meet them, because really they have just been these things in my tummy. lol.
Can't wait to make it to 36 weeks, but I sure hope I don't go past 38 weeks. Good luck to me, I guess =)
