35 weeks down... less than 3 to go!

After another fitful and frustrating night of sleep last night, I got up and hurriedly dressed for my morning appointments.

At 10 I went to the labor and delivery unit of our hospital and my nurse, Donna, helped set me up for my non-stress test for the week. Lilly, our baby B, must have been awake and happy because her heart was going up and down just like they wanted to see. After a yummy juice cocktail from Donna, Piper, baby A, perked up and followed suit. After being hooked up for over an hour, they let me go.

I made my next appointment the same as today, 10 am. Wednesday the 24th. After the NST, I went and saw Dr. A around 11:45 and all he did was measure my belly and ask if I had any questions. I had none so he said he would see me next week. :)

My belly is measuring 45 weeks, which is just wild to think about! I am still gaining weight, which means the girls are getting what they need. I am so thankful for that.

For now we keep on waiting till labor starts on its own or until the morning of April 5th. Jacob has a few bets going for when I'll have the girls. The wager: Chick-fil-A milkshakes. :)

Thanks for the prayers! I'll update again next week or if labor starts before then!! :)

Dear Rebecca,

thank you for sharing your story.

my parents (and my husband and I) are on staff with CCC. I was looking at Family Life's website and I ordered your book about Molly for a dear friend of mine who is just going thru the same thing.

Praying for the delivery of your twins!
