33 Week Appointment

Our OB and hospital appointments were good yesterday. The girls passed their second NST, despite that the poor nurse had a hard time keeping Baby A on the monitor. She was getting REALLY frustrated. I only had a few minor contractions while I was there. Wish they could do my NST in the evening when the contractions are crazy.

There are trace amounts of protein in my urine and my feet are severely swollen (beyond normal swelling) so I'm being monitored for pre-eclampsia. So far my blood pressure has been perfect so we're hoping it stays that way.

I'm measuring 40 weeks. That explains why I feel as miserable as I feel. The girls are still head down. I'll be induced on June 1 (38w2d) if I haven't gone in to labor prior, but she expects I will deliver between 36 and 37 weeks. That's like 2.5 - 3.5 weeks away. Ack! I'm not ready! But at the same time, I am SOOOOOOO ready.


  1. Wow, great job making it so far Momma. I know its tough in the end, but hang in there!! :)

  2. Praise God - You've done such a great job thus far I have no doubt you'll be a wonderful mother.

  3. Oh Jen... I'm so thrilled for you. You're almost there, can you believe it?! Before you know it, you'll be holding those little girls in your arms and marveling at their little faces. Please keep us posted!
