34 weeks

How Far Along: 34 weeks

We saw the specialist yesterday and not much had changed since Monday's doctor visit. My blood pressure was a little high when we first got there. They checked it later and it had gone back down. I've gained 2 more pounds since Monday so now I've gained 49 lbs. altogether. My left foot and leg have officially started swelling and look just like my right. My legs are soooo heavy and I'm terrified I'm gonna fall.

They did an ultrasound and the babies are still doing great. I told the doctor I didn't think I was gonna make it after the last appointment with him 2 weeks ago....he said he didn't think I was gonna make it either. So here I am....I've made it to 34 weeks. I can't believe it. I'm taking it one day at a time because that's all I can do. I'm extremely uncomfortable and to make it another day with 2 babies in me is a BLESSING!

The doctor really didn't have anything new to tell me. He said he wouldn't be surprized if he got a phone call on Saturday saying I was in labor. I told him I would be happy!! :) I just knew that he would at least let me schedule a c-section for 37 or 38 weeks but of course for some odd reason....we have yet to schedule it. I guess he knows I won't make it that far.....but why he won't tell me that I'll never know. He did say that (1) my water is going to break or (2) I'm gonna develop preeclampsia and they'll go ahead and take the babies. I'm curious to know what's gonna happen. Brayden's head is sooo far down now that they couldn't even measure it yesterday. Both babies are still practice breathing just like their suppose to and their weighing 4 lbs. 13 oz. and 4 lbs. 12 oz. They're still an ounce off. How amazing?!

My friends tells me I "have the look"....they think it's not gonna be too much longer.
We shall see!!!! :) :)
