    w/g: 25lbs (plus some I'm sure)

    s/c: Was swimming yesterday and could feel the b/h contractions get a bit more uncomfortable so I thought it was time to get out! Want this little man to bake a bit longer. My back hurts more now than ever. At my appt Friday my Dr said I'm still 1.5cm but baby is "waaaay" low. Haha. No kidding, I think he's going to fall out sometimes.

    other: Everything is ready/washed/put away/packed. I had some serious nesting this weekend and did a million loads of laundry from sheets and clothes to burp cloths and towels. Now if I see another piece of dirty clothes I'll freak. Haha.

    next d/a: 6/15 for my 38 week appt. Still have a 39 and a 40 week appt scheduled but I'd be ok if I never make it to those

    s/c: I feel stuffed to the max, like little Maty doesnt have anymore room left and i still have over 10 weeks left. He is very strong and is kicking my butt. Most days I am exhausted, I hope to get some energy soon.

    other : Both my kids love feeling their little brother kick. My daughter sometimes slaps my belly back because brother kicked her, lol so cute. Just went through some of my sons baby cloths and now I see what i still need. I'm not doing to bad in the cloths department for now.

    next d/a : 6/14 ob then I go every 2 weeks

    31w 2d

    w/g: 30#

    s/c: Hearburn is very strong. My sinuses have been so stuffed up it's been hard to breath. I have also been getting short of breath also because I think she had another growth spurt and everything is still tight in my abdomen.

    other: I had an appointment last Wednesday and I have to drive 75 miles to my OB because I want to attempt VBAC. A friend of mine recommended and is/was also going to the same OB and was due June 15. We finally had matching appointments so we traveled over together for this one. She had some contractions on the way over, and some on the way home, but the doctor said she ok when we were there. The very next day she went into labor and delivered VBAC after 10 minutes of pushing, I think it's funny how close I was to catching a baby in my car the day before, LOL!

    Next d/a: June 20, every two weeks now

    Braxton hicks and a lot of lower pressure

    My little one is moving a lot and I love it! She is measuring big and I will have an ultra sound in two weeks. I will then go every 2 weeks.

    35 weeks today

    w/g: 25 lbs

    s/c: At my regular OB appointment yesterday, my blood pressure was up again. This led to hospitalization #5!!! According to my doctors, I have to stay now until the babies are born, which could be up to 2 weeks from now!! I cried when my doctor left the room. I really hope that they take the babies before then. I'm having blood pressure spikes, sciatica, horrible headaches, and back spasms. They started me on Labetalol for my bp and did a 24 hour urine analysis. A few things can happen that will lead them to an early delivery:

    1) uncontrolled blood pressure even on meds
    2) protein in my urine
    3) baby in distress
    4) not enough fluid around one or both babies
    5) natural labor begins

    other: The nursery is ready and the double bascinette is in our room. We do still need to install the car seats, extra bases, and put together the double stroller. My husband is going to take a week off from work. It's called "baby bonding leave."

    Hi Mary -

    Wow, what a pregnancy! I know this is miserable but it will be all worth it when you are snuggling with your little ones.

    I am sorry to hear you now have a new view from your bed and hope you can get some relief from your symptoms. Does the hospital have a massage therapist? May help with the sciatica, back spams and headaches.

    Please keep us posted, fingers crossed for a sooner than later birth story,

    Ty for the encouraging words!

    I'm going to ask the doctor when she comes by for rounds what the plan is. My blood pressure has been really good on the new medicine. Other than the stupid back spasms and Braxton-Hicks drama, I think I'd be ok at home.

    Wish me luck! Oh, and by the way, my massage therapist is my husband, LOL! He works 10 minutes away from the hospital and spent the night here last night on the pull-out bed.
