37 Weeks!

Yes, I'm still here.. Babies are both content to stay inside.

When we initially got pregnant I really feared that I would have these babies early. Now that I've made it to 37 weeks, I can hardly believe it. Only 9 more days! We have a planned C Section for Jan 26th; although I'm hoping Baby B will turn head down before our appointment on Thursday.

How far along? 37 weeks, 1 days

Total weight gain: 30 lbs

Stretch Marks? None that I see so far

Maternity clothes? Yes, but I have outgrown a couple shirts.

Sleep: Not much in fact. When I finally do get to sleep, I wake up a couple hours later to go the bathroom. It is very hard to get comfortable; not to mention the horrible acid reflux/heartburn.

Labor Signs: dilated to 1 cm 1 1/2 weeks ago. I am getting some contractions on and off but nothing that has picked up or gotten stronger.

Belly Button in or out? It's out.

What I miss: Seeing my feet

What good news for staying pregnant this long! Having those babies is instant miraculous relief for that darn heartburn and innumberable bathroom trips. BUT...you get a whole new set of problems. I canNOT believe NO stretch marks WITH twins!!!! Wow!!

Wow! I'm covered in stretch marks... I keep debating on whether or not to do the post twin tummy post :-p
I also can't believe you only put on 30lbs! I was up in the 70lb area b/c they initially told me to gain 50lb and then with the IUGR scare they told me to pack on as much as possible.

Way to go on keeping them cooking so long! I'm so excited you get to meet them soon!
