32 weeks and going strong!

We had another MFM appointment today, and that means we got to see the boys! Everything is still looking great; Colin is weighing 4lbs, 11 oz and Kieran is weighing 4lbs, 5 oz. (EDIT: Judging by their birth weights, I think I had the boys mixed up here LOL). They are both still breech, so even with all the movement I've been feeling, they haven't managed to do a flip. There is still time, of course, but these boys don't seem very interested in flipping.

We got more face pictures today! I think they're too big to get full body pictures now, LOL.

Here's Colin! Looks like he's got some chubby little cheeks! (Well, you can only see one clearly here) You should also be able to see his eyes (closed), nose and mouth as well :)

And here we have Kieran! You should be able to see one of his closed eyes, nose and mouth. So precious!

I love seeing these face pictures! It's hard to believe that in just a few weeks we'll be seeing the real deal! In fact, our next MFM appointment will be our last because I'll be 35 weeks at my next appointment and I'll be delivering around 37!

We went to an infant care class on Monday, which was pretty intresting. It was actually a little overwhelming, but we'll figure everything out eventually! Next Monday we have a breastfeeding class, and on 4/6 we have a childbirth preparedness class. Eeek!

I'm still working, but I'm guessing that will probably only be for a couple more weeks at most. I'm carrying around 9 lbs of baby, so moving around the office is getting more and more difficult!

See what I mean? ;)

Until next time...

Amanda, Ryan and the boys!

The big 3-0!

Yes, I am turning 30 in less than a month, but this week I am 30 weeks along! This is a big milestone for me… it means the boys will be here very soon! Actually, they will be here in less than 7 weeks because my OB told me she will probably not let me go past 37 weeks. Both babies were breech at the last ultrasound, so if they don’t flip in the next 7 weeks we will be scheduling a c-section. I am feeling some major movement in there so the fact that they haven’t flipped is crazy to me. Maybe they are waiting until the last minute so they don’t have to spend several weeks head down!

I had a non-stress test at the OB today. I didn’t have any contractions, which is perfect. They also monitored the boys’ heart rates for about 20 minutes. The nurse had a very hard time catching Kieran’s heartbeat because he kept moving, which is typical Kieran; he has a history of being difficult when someone is trying to get his heart rate! Eventually they got it and everybody looked great! In other good news, I passed my glucose test with flying colors, so I can cupcake it up!

My OB wants me to see a doctor weekly now, so on weeks I don’t see my MFM, I will see her.  Even though my anxiety level is much less now since I can feel them move, I will always feel better with more monitoring! We have scheduled an infant care class and a breastfeeding class at the hospital and are in the process of scheduling the child birth class.

No ultrasound pictures this week, so here I am with my belly:

Until next time :)
