34 Weeks!!!

How far along? 34w1d
Total weight gain/loss: ???
Maternity clothes? Yes
Stretch marks? :(
Sleep: 1-2 hours before I have to get out of bed to turn over. While I'm out of bed I go to the bathroom to avoid getting up again soon, plus I'm still taking the Procardia every 4 hours so I'm up at 3 and 7 to take the pill.
Best moment this week: Making it to our goal of 34 weeks!
Movement: All the time and still loving it
Food cravings: Brownie Batter Blizzard from Dairy Queen
Labor Signs: Just felt a contraction actually. As of Monday 3cm. Having plenty of mucus when I go to the bathroom (which the dr forewarned me about) Some mild cramping that goes away after I take the Procardia
Belly Button in or out? Out
What I miss: Being able to roll over without pain in my belly forcing me to get completely out of bed so I could get back in bed in a different position
What I am looking forward to: Having the boys home!
Milestone: Making it to our big goal of 34 weeks!!

I was so excited to make it to 34 weeks. I knew I could make it to 34, just not sure how far past it we'll go. The other night at the funeral home a lady said she thought I was going to go into labor on Sunday, the night of the full moon. I know people believe that stuff, but the more I think about it, I get kind of excited. Full moon or not, what if I do go into labor Sunday? Then we get to meet our boys and I can't wait. I was sitting here on the couch last night thinking about it and I got so excited at the idea. These boys could come any time, especially once they take me off the Procardia, and that makes me so happy. I wan to see them and hold them. I want to see what they look like and see James with his sons.

I need to complete packing my hospital bag and pick out an outfit for their first pictures/coming home. I feel like as far as the nursery is concerned, we're about as prepared as we can get. As for the rest of it, like being a mom and knowing what to do, I'm totally nervous but know it will all come together. I'm most nervous about breastfeeding two, but I'm just going to ask as many questions as I need to in the hospital and if I need help once we're home, there's a local company that have lactation nurses that come to your home. I will take advantage of them if necessary. It just seems so crazy. We decided to start our family, a year after trying we end up pregnant, we find out that we're having two, and now here we are waiting for their arrival. It's just amazing.

It makes me teary because I feel the exact same way you do. I think about what our son will look like and how I can't wait to see Chris with him. We have so much to do in our nursery still, but once the baby shower is out of the way we'll know what all is left to get and what we'll need to do. It's a crazy time waiting for out little ones to get here, isn't it?
