A Big Milestone


Today, I had another ultrasound and doctor's appointment. The babies are doing great! We are 32 weeks along, which is a HUGE milestone in their development. Their weights were as they should be with very little discordance; Lily weighed in at 4.6 and Liam is a bit bigger at 4.9 which means I am carrying just under 9 lbs of baby in me. YIKES! Oh, and I am 165 lbs and measuring 42 weeks. The ultrasound photos were a little more vague as they are getting so huge.


As for me... I am still on bed rest until 35 weeks (like I could do anything anyway). My feet turn blotchy and purple and start to tingle if I am up for more than just a few minutes. Also, I have constant tightening contractions which worsen if I get up. From here on out, I have weekly appointments at the OB and weekly Non-Stress Tests at the Hospital... I'm glad we live so close and Mum really could not be coming at a better time... c'mon Friday! Still... no stretch marks (yet)!

How lucky to have no stretch marks!! You look cute and Congrats on the milestone!

Sarah said...

Wahoo! I am so glad you made it this far. Now just 4 more weeks and you are pretty much set. They are looking great. I can't believe you have no stretch marks. I am sure my genetics won't let me be so lucky. Oh, and good job on them being obedient and head down!

Wow....everyone else said it, but I can't believe you don't have any stretch marks. Thank your mom for that stretchy skin when she comes on Friday! I can't wait to see pics of the little babes once they make their appearance!

Every time I see your belly I think of the part on Baby Mama when the manorexic freaks out about his surrogate getting so obese.
