It's September and we're gonna have ourselves some babies this month!! Squeal!!! Everyone is nervous, anxious, excited ... OMG can't believe we are here! Although our official due date isn't till mid October it's my OB practices protocol to not go beyond 38 weeks with twins (Sept 28th) so, if come the the last week of September we haven't had these lil guys yet a plan will be made to deliver before the months end.
Today marks 34 weeks which is a big milestone for a twin pregnancy. If labor were to begin and there was progression (cervical change) they wouldn't try to stop it at this point. Our goal is still to make it to 36+ weeks to give the boys the best chance at having fully developed lungs and bypassing the NICU but, statistically the average gestation for twins is a bit sooner than that - 35 weeks. That's next week!!!
My hospital bag is packed; pre-birth order - check, birth plan - check, gownies - check, tolietries including my own TP (have you ever tried to use hospital toilet paper after a vaginal delivery?!?!) - check. Then there is the list of last minute items to grab too like the laptop and camera of course. Speaking of taking pics, did I mention yet that as part of my baby shower gift to K&S I booked a photographer to document these lil guys arrival?!? We are so excited and can't wait to capture their "birth story".
