Not much happened in week 31, it was better since I’m taking the liquid iron but I am still always tired so I can’t tell if it’s working as far as that goes.
This week was a milestone week for me! It was a personal goal of mine to make it to 32 weeks and I am proud to say that I did it AND I haven’t needed bed rest yet!
Symptoms and all of that are still the same with the reflux and I know the only way I will have relief is when the babies are born. I am experiencing more uncomfortable contractions- nothing consistent but they hurt when I do have them. Also, my feet and ankles are really swollen. I never experienced this with my 4 pregnancies so it’s unusual for me. I guess it’s because the babies are putting more pressure on my lower body.
Weight at week 32 is a total of 23 lbs now for the pregnancy- so that’s a pound a week I’m gaining.
Earlier in the week while I was out with my mom getting supplies for my hospital bag I kept having random people in stores tell me how big I look…FYI to all people everywhere NO pregnant woman wants to be told how big she looks, how big her belly is or anything like that! It’s rude and for me personally I find it offensive because I already feel big I don’t need to be told I look big!
At 32 weeks 6 days IPs drove down for the appointment and we had an u/s to check their growth. They are big! Baby A weighs 4 lbs 12 oz and Baby B is 4 lbs 11 oz! That’s 9 1/2 lbs of baby I am carrying and it definitely feels like it! The bad thing is that BOTH babies are butt down. I had a feeling baby A was because she’s been that way since 24 weeks , but now her brother is too. So it looks like I will be having a c-section unless a miracle happens before I go into labor. I have never had a c-section before so I am nervous about it, mostly about the recovery since it’s a MAJOR surgery ! I asked my ob what to except after surgery and he said I cannot lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk for 6 weeks. 6 WEEKS! That is going to be hard since my youngest boy is 3 and obviously still wants to be held and also isn’t potty trained ect.
