34 Week Pregnancy Update

Jul 18, 2019

As most of you know by now, my husband and I are expecting TWINS this August. 
We could really expect our twins any day now, but are praying they don't arrive until 37 weeks.

I love reading other bloggers' "bumpdates" and wanted to share a few of my own here on the blog as I go through this special journey. Previous updates can be found below::
16 weeks
21 weeks
25 weeks
31 weeks

How far along? 34 weeks and 3 days.
Twins! Identical or Fraternal? Fraternal
Size of the babies? We had a growth scan on Tuesday and Baby A was 5 lbs, 14 oz and Baby B was 5 lbs, 11 oz. Both babies are a week ahead, which we are grateful for since they won't go a full 40 weeks.
Genders? We are waiting to find out until they arrive! Prolonging the suspense.
Working? My Dr cut me off from work as of last Thursday. My blood pressure has been high at my past few appointments, so they want me taking it easy. I'm not on bed rest, but need to be mostly resting. I now am up to three dr appointments a week - two non-stress tests and one appt with my Dr's office. Having multiples increases all the check ups at the end stage of pregnancy.
How are you feeling? I'm still feeling pretty decent. Definitely more uncomfortable + tired these days.
Best moment this week? Checking in on our babies at their growth scan and learning about their growth.
Miss anything? Rosè, being able to move around without being winded, and county fair season (since I am sitting it out this Summer).
Prep progress made -
+ Diaper party - our brothers threw a party for the Cattleman at the end of last month. I tallied up the diapers and wipes for fun - We received 3,640 wipes & 2,252 diapers! So grateful to have such a good base built up to get us going. We have also received a ton at showers that we need to do a quick inventory on and store them away.
+ Work babies shower - my co-workers threw me a shower at work and they went with diapers and wipes for gifts - again, so grateful!
+ Nursery is done! I love how it all came together and for now you can see some quick peeks on my Instagram.
+ We have hospital bags packed!! I have a few more things to throw in for me and the babies, but things are at a pretty good spot there.
+ We got our maternity photo photos taken last week (at 33 weeks pregnant). It was hot & humid night, but Audrey worked her magic like usual. You can also find a peek at that on my Instagram too. I plan to do a full post once I have the images all back.

That is it for week 34, pals. I hope this week treats you well!
