Thoughts on My Pregnancy at 33 Weeks

I had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday and I hit the dreaded scale.

194

I didn't gain any weight. So my babies continue to gain weight and I am holding steady. I seemed to have slowed down and I am happy about that. Hopefully, I will be able to maintain this trend for the last month. We shall see.

Everything seems to be going well. I talked to my doctor about an amniocentisis. Apparently, they will do an amnio if you want to be done and you are at least 37 weeks. I do not want one, no matter what. I can stick it out for one more week and be absolutely miserable if I don't go into labor on my own. I know I can do it. I have done this before, plus I have run a marathon. This is nothing!

I called my perinatologist' office today and they said that he wants to do an amnio on me at 36 weeks. I told the office lady, "No way!" I guess I will be able to have that discussion with him next week for my 34 week appointment.

I have already decided: I am going to be pregnant in October and those babies are coming home with me from the hospital. No NICU, no tubes. They will be healthy, fat little babies. I know I can do it. In order for this to happen, my house will be extra messy, Eli may be a little neglected, and Raef and Zach might get extra television and computer time. But I don't care. I am having fat, healthy, October babies.

I hear ya! I've had twins in the NICU and had to leave them behind while I went home and it's just not fun. I hope you get your wish and get two fat healthy babies that get to go home with you!!

WAY to GO for running a marathon while prego. I could NEVER do that. I doubly applaud your efforts. Hope the babies make it to Oct.

I didn't run a marathon while I was pregnant, but I have run a marathon and I cried the last 10 miles.

You can do it, you can do it, you can do it!!

If there's one thing I learned in my last weeks of pregnancy with Caleb it's that a little extra family couch and tv time won't kill anyone, and it does wonders to keep babies inside longer. Happy resting!

Wishing you some October "fatties." :) And, more importantly, just plain healthy babies, whenever they arrive! I can't believe you're getting so close! Best wishes!

I can't imagine what it is like with two since I always feel that way with one. Hang in there! Just remember the longer they stay in there the less likely they will have to go to the NICU.
