How far along: 33 weeks, 6 days
Weight gain/loss: last post said they hadn’t weighed me since I’d been here. Apparently they did the first day I was here, but I was too much of a train wreck to remember. Whoops. When I checked in they had me at 164, this week they weighed me and I was 161. Lost 3 pounds, didn’t even know that was possible.
Maternity clothes: Wearing lots of yoga pants and sweaters here in the hospital
Sleep: not good, at all. The boys are getting so big that they are fighting for space. I spend a few nights a week sleeping sitting up. Otherwise whichever side I am laying on, pisses off that baby and they let me have it.
Best moment this week: Hubby getting to stay they whole weekend with me (even nights) Thank God for my brother staying at my house with Campbell. He’s been such a huge help!
We also got to tour the NICU since we had so many "what if" questions. It's an amazing unit here. I feel much better if my boys have to go there. I also got to meet with a neonatologist this morning, who went through a lot with me. He gave me scenarios if the boys were to come tomorrow, or 35 weeks or 36 weeks. He was extremely helpful. He also told me about the circus that will be in my operating room during my C-section. The boys alone each have their own team, consisting of a Neonatologist, a nurse practioner and 2-3 nurses.... PER BABY! Place that on top of my two surgeons, anesthesiologist, and how ever many nurses I get. That's at least 15 people... hopefully less room for error.
Food cravings: Nothing really. I am starting to eat smaller snacks now instead of meals since I am running out of room.
Food aversions: none.
Movement: Lots of movement. My nurses laugh at them all the time, especially during monitoring because they are wiggle worms.
Gender: MY BOYS!
Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, really uncomfortable, anxiety, and stress.
Miss anything: My house, dog, bed and time with hubby.
Looking forward to: October. Every time a nurse changes the date on my white board, it’s a day closer to seeing my boys! And I get to go home!!!!
We had a sono on Thursday. My cervix was t a 2.6 which is better but went down to a 2.4/2.5 with pressure.
Sorry this post is so late. I was enjoying the weekend with my hubby being here that I completely forgot!
