Almost 29 weeks……
Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying your Memorial Day weekends, celebrating the lives of those we have lost and enjoying a long weekend with friends and family.
We are over in central Washington in the town I grew up in, today I had my last baby shower. Once again, our girls were spoiled by generous family friends. We received a lot of diapers, which we are so thankful to have, I’m sure we will go through them in no time.
Here is the bassinet that was mine when I was a baby, my Mom filled it with all kinds of baby gear.
This past Thursday we had another OB appointment. My cervix is still holding strong at around 4 centimeters, but somehow both Baby A and Baby B have done flips since our last appointment and are now both breach. My doctor isn’t too concerned, she said they have plenty of time to flip back to head down and they both seem to have quite a bit of fluid surrounding them which will allow them to do so. I’ve recently started back with the acupuncture to help with my continuing carpal tunnel syndrome and my acupuncturist talked about Moxibustion Therapy to turn the babies around to head down. It involves placing a heated moxa stick close to the pinkie toe for approximately 10 minutes on each foot for 10 or so days starting around 32-33 weeks. I figure it can’t hurt and we might give it a try.
We also had our hospital tour this past Thursday, we were able to see a birthing suite and a postpartum suite. We will be delivering in an OR since we are having multiples, but it was nice to see where we will be before and after their delivery.
As promised, here are a couple of photos from our pregnancy photo shoot. I was 25 weeks in these photos.
Here is today, I will be 29 weeks tomorrow.
Overall things are going very well, I really can’t complain. My carpal tunnel is getting a bit worse which along with my growing belly is making work a little more difficult, but only about 7 more weeks of work to go. Also, my headaches are returning, I had severe headaches for a couple of weeks in my first trimester and am now on Day 3 of bad headaches again…..figure it’s all of those hormones!
Have a safe holiday weekend!
