38 weeks | The Fishies

Well… I honestly never thought I would make it this far… I thought for sure they would be born by now. However, I am barely effaced or dilated, my blood pressure is slightly high but under control, and everything is still going well. So we are holding off until Monday!

Honestly, my doctor is quite lucky with how routine this twin pregnancy has been- he’s gotten off very easy! I think he’s excited to finally be delivering them on Monday, his sweet nurses are fighting over who gets to be in there with me (and the 20 other people that twins require, lol!)

Here’s a fun fact, last week, we measured the circumference of my belly (around my back and then the widest part of my belly.) It was 47 inches. This week, it was 48.25 inches. Oh yeah, growing rapidly up in here. It’s hard to tell in the pictures just exactly how much change there is, but know I am over an inch wider in just a week… In the past 2 weeks I have noticed that they feel much ‘heavier’ in general. Can’t wait to see what they weigh!

I am definitely downright uncomfortable all the time now. Insanely so. I can’t decide if recovering from a c-section will be more or less painful than twins at 38 weeks. I’m thinking the c-section will be less painful…. haha! ouch!

I am so thankful that we have been able to carry them this long and that they have an excellent chance of having no issues and coming straight home with us! I can not wait to see their faces and finally hold them.

And here’s the belly- 38 weeks! I am planning on taking one more the morning of the c-section and then updating the composite!
