Week 34

Well, we made it to week 34! This is one of those gestational milestones that we wanted to hit and we did. I am so thankful that these babies are still hanging out and (right now) seem content to stay for a while longer. My personal goal is to get to 35 weeks. If we hit this goal and the babies are born and are healthy they can come home right away and we can avoid going to Neonatal ICU (NICU) all together. This would be fantastic so that's what we're shooting for.

I spent the last 2 weeks in the hospital and was finally released on Friday night. We had an ultrasound right before leaving and left with the encouraging news of the babies' weights being very good! A is measuring around 4.13lbs and B....5.10lbs! So it seems we have one in there that likes to eat! :) Hopefully, he or she will let A catch up a little before they are born but we are still very happy with both weight predictions.

Being in the hospital really made me feel very unprepared for these babies' arrival. I was realizing how much I haven't been able to do simply because I've been on bed rest for 10 weeks now. However, when I got home I started to feel a lot better about that. Jared and my Dad have been working hard on the nursery and we're very close to being ready to paint. In the meantime, Jared's mom rearranged the furniture in our bedroom on the main level to accommodate the double bassinet pack n' play we plan to use for the first couple of weeks/months. Here are some pictures of the progress.

Only 5 more days until our goal! :) 

Sleep well, God Bless,

  2. Yay! You will make it! And things will get done, don't you worry about nesting, you will have lots of help! You can count on me for food, so if they plan on a having nesting party let me know and I'll cook!

  4. Are these pictures of the upstairs....I thought that the upstairs was "finished" before you moved in? Wasn't there 2 rooms upstairs? Maybe you wanted drywall...

  5. Joanne,
    Yes there are 2 bedrooms upstairs both had wood on all the walls, we like drywall so I can change it up with paint over the years. So we left the ceiling and floor wood and the walls & closet are now all drywall. :) I can't resist a project! We are only tackling one bedroom right now but I plan to do the other one eventually. Then on to another project I'm sure. The carpenter's daughter in me can't just leave things alone! ;)
