29 weeks today update

So I haven't written a journal in over a month. Things are going great. I had my shower the 1st of this month. It was a great shower. There were too many people there to be able to chat with everyone, but it was so good to see everyone. I got all kinds of diapers and gift cards. Now we are getting everything ready.
Thankfully the cerclage is working ang holding my little guy in there just fine. I have a lot of pressure, but he is very low and the Dr said it is normal with a cerclage as the weight is being distributed differently. I am very uncomfortable at night when it comes to sleeping, but I when my ittle man kicks and moves all else is forgotten. I will miss all the movements when I deliver, but I will not miss the heartburn... OMG the heartburn is BAD!!
So i have gotten a rocker, the pack-n-play which will be the bassinet and changing table, and my breast pump. I splurged on the breast pump as I plan to go back to work after about 4 mths. I work nights so he willbe with my hubby not day care, but I want to make sure I can maintain my milk supply so I got the expensive Medela Pump in Style Advance... It will be worth it though I know it. I still need to get the stroller/carseat combo. I also got the swing. I have plenty of NB clothes, burp cloths, a tub, but I only have 2 towels. So I need some more towels. I also have plenty of washcloths. I also only have a few recieving blankets. I have a bunch of bigger blankets, but I need a few more receiving blankets. SOOOOOOOOOOO I think I am about ready to have this
I am so excited and as I walk around the house and see all the stuff I get even more excited... I can't wait... Unfortunately I do not have an extra room for the baby so he will be in our room, which means I have one less thing to do in decorating a nursery.
I hope everyone else is ready and enjoying the last few weeks and months of their pregnancies...

Glad to hear things are going well and your feeling ready. I sympathize with you about the heartburn, it is as intense as ever these days and unfortunately I don't think we can look forward to relief any time soon. You said he is really low and I was just wondering what that felt like??? Over the past week or so I feel as though my belly is lower and I am getting lots of kicks below my hip bones - it feels as if they are on the verge of kicking out of my cervix, I am trying to decide if it is possible and whether or not I should be nervous. I kinda figure with two in there room is getting to be a premium anyways. Good luck for the remainder, when does the cerclage come out??? I am hoping to be offically ready at 30 weeks, or this weekend if I am lucky - hubby is off so we are going home and I am gonna take some last minute inventory and hopfully convince him to make a trip to walmart with me!!!

The cerclage comes out at 36 weeks so in 7 weeks!! That will be the first wek of Jan.
As for the baby being low, I feel so much pressure on my pelvic bone and sometime I think I can reach inside and feel his fingers... It's weird. He has been head down the whole time and the u/s tech at the high risk Dr mentions how low he is at every check up. However thankfully my cervix is holding with the cerclage. I still feel the top of the uterus above my belly button, but I notice the difference from my other kids. My daughter was in my ribs and kicking my ribs.This little man is no where near my ribs.
Unless you have problems with your cervix like mine, they will not kick out your cervix cause it is nice and long and plugged. But it does feel that way. I can't imagine how tight space gets for twins. I wonder if my one baby has enough room to be comfortable. LOL.
OMG the heartburn stinks. It is worse at night which is a bummer since I have enough problems sleeping from being uncomfortable and peeing all the time, the last thing I need is the heartburn on top of it. But atleast we are almost done. We are in the final stretch. Sometime I feel like I have been pregnant forever, but then I have to stop myself and remember to enjoy it cause I know I will miss some of it when it's gone.
Good luck to you and your family for the remainder as well and keep us updated as you get further along. You will probably have them early like me. Twins usually come early.
