Throwback Thursday and 34 weeks update

We made it to 34 weeks! I’m so thankful (and pleasantly surprised) that these babies are still safe and sound in my belly. I thought it might be fun to share a baby bump comparison from when I was 34 weeks pregnant with Cole versus 34 weeks pregnant with the twins. It’s pretty easy to match the picture with the pregnancy!

Today I had a growth scan and a cervical check via ultra sound. My cervix has not started dilating and is actually still quite long. Basically, no changes from a couple of weeks ago. Still on bed rest orders, but only two more weeks to go! He said after that I can go run a marathon…quite a sense of humor Dr. Kaufman has considering I get winded just by opening up the recliner.

Update on Claire: She measures 4 pounds 3 ounces and is still head down. Her heart rate is perfect and always slightly lower than her brother’s. I can already tell that she is the calmer of the two! During the ultra sound the tech pointed out to us that she was practicing her breathing; it was so incredible to watch.

Update on Owen: He measures 4 pounds 6 ounces and flipped back around to breech position. Earlier in the week he was head down right next to his sister. This little boy is a mover and shaker and does not like to sit still! Sounds like another little boy of mine… 😉

And how am I doing? My mood is all over the place and I’m insanely uncomfortable. However, I’m nearing the finish line and I’m thankful to have the best prizes waiting for me at the end.

  2. So happy for you all Lindsay. Those babies already know how lucky they are to have you for a mommy. Both Owen and Claire have really good weights. They are working with you. Now, if there was a way to make you more comfortable while the growing happens, that would be great. Uncle Mike and I love you.
