Twins birth story

Throwback Thursday and 34 weeks update

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.
