30 weeks

I didn’t think that I would’ve made it to 30 weeks. Week 29 was the hardest and longest one I’ve had in this pregnancy and I’ve got a feeling that the next 6-7 weeks are just going to get harder.

I don’t know if it was Christmas or just being 29 weeks but the cramps and lower pain were more intense this week. The 3 days did take a lot out of all of us, Jordy included.

On Boxing day we went to our friends place and I was just in so much pain that on the way home I almost told Tim to take me straight to the hospital.

It doesn’t help that for most part of the week I wake at 2am to eat something then am unable to fall asleep for 2 hours. The last two nights I’ve woken up at 5am to eat then I’m able to fall back asleep and Jordy has been very kind to his Mum and slept into until 8am.

We still have so much to do with the babies room, I’m trying not to worry about it, deep down both Tim and I think that I will not make it to 36 weeks, my gut is telling me to be prepared for 34-35 weeks.

I hope that I get to 35 weeks so that I can go to the local hospital, but only time will tell.

Hi Mari, I finally joined up with Google so I can post replies!
Im thinking of you all the time with your Twins, especially in this hot weather. My boy and girl Twins were born Feb 19th, and I had a dreadful pregnancy. I cried for the last 3 months, every day! It was so painful, so aweful. Its hard to describe and remember now, but I kept a journal, and its shocking to read! I always have so much empathy for mothers of Twins!!! But.. what a blessing! Its JOYOUS to parent Twins! the love they bring for each other, and that extends to their siblings, is amazing, such a beautiful thing to experience.

I carried my Twins until 38 weeks, and Im praying to the Goddess that you can do the same! Lots of rest, and lots of water my doctor told me, as well as lots of food! Keep your nutrition up. :)

Merry Christmas to you all. :)

Felicity.
