38 Weeks!

Today is that special day of the week, when I roll over into the next week for gestating these babies.

38 weeks.

This entire pregnancy, when people asked me my due date, I'd say, "July 23rd, but since it's twins, I'm aiming for July 9th!".

Often, this was met with much laughter and a look of doubt. Especially from those in the medical community, who often said, "I'll bet you'll have babies at the end of June!".

I have to say I'm proud that I was right!

When I went in to the hospital this morning for my NST, every nurse I ran into was shocked that I'm still carrying these babies.

I just smiled and laughed.

Unless the babies decide otherwise, in five days, I'll be checking into the hospital for my scheduled section. On one hand, I can't believe it's so close, yet on the other, I'm SO ready to meet these little ones.

So Baby A & Baby B, now that we've hit July 9th, you can decide to come at any time...Momma won't mind at all! :)

  7. I just read your previous post again and I'm so sorry that you had to be under general anesthesia for Miss O's birth. You have every right to feel robbed..but I hope and pray that this time is so much better for you and that you get to hear those little cries as those beautiful babies make their way into this world :) ((hugs)) And I am waving my magic CRNA wand that you will have the spinal gods smile down fondly in you :-)

  20. I've said it elsewhere, but YAY to 38 weeks!!! That is so awesome!

    And FEH to all the naysayers who didn't believe you'd make it this far! I know it isn't common to carry twins to term, but that's no reason to tell the twin-pregnant-lady that she *can't* make it that far! Jeez!

    Congrats on making it! Big milestone!!
