30 weeks!!

Another big milestone...30 weeks!!  Only 7 more weeks to go...or 5-6 weeks since according to my doctor most women pregnant with twins go into labor on their own between 35-36 weeks.  I'm just thankful for every additional week and for the 2 wiggly babies in my belly.  My last checkup was last Thursday and my cervix is still long and closed despite all the contractions I have been having while at work...usually about 1-4 an hour and they are much more noticeable these days.  I'm just gonna do some bullet points to try to organize my thoughts at the moment.

-I'm so happy to be 30 weeks and I'm just really looking forward to meeting these babies!!
-I'm starting to get a little nervous about delivery.  Right now, Baby Girl (A) is head down and Baby Boy (B) is transverse.  If he turns head down then we'll be able to try a vaginal delivery.  If he turns breech, then I will most likely opt for a c-section since it can be risky to deliver the second twin if they are not head down.
-We haven't taken any newborn care classes or childbirth/labor classes...I feel unprepared, but at this point there are no other classes that we could get into.
-We got into daycare for November!!  We are touring the facility next week!!  It's going to be pretty pricey...about $420/week, but it includes diapers, wipes, and food once they start eating, so that will help out!!
-I think that I am manifesting my nesting by really wanting to buy things right now.  I love going on amazon and to look for baby items and most of the time I can refrain from buying something.  I did go to a baby store in town last week and find an adorable mobile that was $50 and was on sale for $25.  I couldn't turn down such a great deal and the colors would work nicely in our nusery.  Plus, the pieces of the mobile come off and can function as toys on their own, which is pretty cool!!
-My mother in-law is making curtains for the nursery.  We picked out the fabric and sent her the measurements and I can't wait to see the finished product!!
-I'm exhausted at the end of the seriously it's hard to move exhausted.  CJ has been wonderful though by making dinners and keeping my water glass filled.  I don't know what I would do without that man!!
-And speaking of CJ, I kicked him out of our bed.  Actually it was a mutual decision.  With my snoogle and my getting up to pee and switching from side to side, neither of us was getting a lot of good sleep.  So, CJ moved into the guest room and we are both sleeping a little better these days.  I love it when he tucks me in at night though and I have the desire to try to snuggle with him in the mornings, but it's just not very practical with my big belly.
-I love watching the Olympics.  Seriously, it's my favorite thing to do!!

Okay, that's all for now.  I gotta get back to work!!  Happy Wednesday!!


  1. Glad you're doing well - all of your updates sound like you're getting closer and closer to the home stretch!

  2. Yay 30 weeks!!

    We haven't taken much in terms of classes, either. I don't know what is necessary to take. We took an infant CPR class, that seemed important. The rest of the stuff will happen, whether or not we take the classes I guess!

    I haven't kicked my husband out of the bed yet. He is persevering despite losing more and more space. Ha!

  3. So happy to hear that you and babies are doing good. How exciting, you are getting close now!

  4. Wow! 30 weeks! Amazing! I cannot believe you are still doing so great with 2 babes AND still working! Good for you! I am on major shopping now too....a little scary with 12 weeks left given how much I have bought in a week - I swear I order something new on my lunch break every day! Glad you guys are doing great :).

  5. Sounds like you're doing really well! I'm on a shopping bender now too! YAY!

  6. Yeah! Congrats on hitting the 30 mark! I felt like that was a huge milestone. You're getting so close!!!
