I can’t tell you the relief I feel typing “Week 35” in the title of today’s blog.
It means that I have made it full term!!!
So many people scared me about twins coming early, about having kids in the NICU, it really freaked me out. I couldn’t imagine having two kids in the hospital and two kids at home.
I must admit, all the warnings did make me take it much easier this pregnancy. Unlike the last two pregnancies, I did a lot less and felt no guilt for it. For example, instead of big events each day for Jack’s spring break, we hung around local parks.
I’m continuing my weekly non stress tests at the hospital. You can see me in the picture hooked up to the monitors. They monitor both babies heart rate for 20 minutes. They do these for pregnancies that are considered high risk. I’m still not sure why I have to go every week, since my pregnancy seems completely normal, but I have a great OB/GYN. After having two kids with her, I completely trust whatever she says. Plus now I know I get a 20 minute guaranteed nap every week. Bonus.Pin It
