I'm at 38 weeks and 5 days now and last week we started to see a rise in bp, but definitely not at PIH levels. Each baby is probably at least 8.5 lbs and I'm secretly hoping one or both of them hit 9 lbs before they're born... I want all the bragging rights I can get from this pregnancy! "Twins never go to term"... "Twins are always smaller than singletons"... Yeah, right!!!

Thanks for the encouraging stories way back when... they definitely helped get me through that 28-36 week stretch, and now even beyond! Can't wait to come back with my very own birth story whenever these babes decide that they're ready to meet the world.
Very inspiring! I'm 33 weeks now and I know I would be shocked to get to 36 weeks. How are you managing to move around at this point?

That's right, lots protien! My midwive suggested almonds. I had my boys at 41 weeks at home, one was 8lb and the other was 6lb 11oz. Good luck!

Yep on the protein

I carried my babies to 40w2d and they weighed 8lbs. (even) and 8lbs.3oz.

Spontaneous labor (with a little acupressure) and double vaginal birth (with breech Baby B).

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!

It ain't easy!!! I'm 5' 11", so at least I've got height going for me - but I thought I reached maximum capacity a few weeks ago, yet here they are... still growing!

39 weeks today though, so it can't possible get much worse than this right? (I'm just asking for 42 week babes, aren't I?) And I'm still packing in as much protein as I can... if these babes are insisting on staying in, I'm gonna help fatten'em up some more!

Good for you! Definitely amazing to me. I'm feeling huge already!

You are doing great!

Congratulations! That is amazing Mom.. I thought my duo were big at 6,12 and 6,14 (39w3d).. I hope all is happy and healthy, and enjoy getting to know Willa and Glory.

Sincerely,
Stacy
