We have made it to 32 weeks, and Monday will mark 33! Yipee!!! As you can see...we are all growing, growing, growing. A week ago at our ultrasound our baby girl weighed in at 3.5 lbs & baby boy was close to 4 lbs! They are expected to gain about .5 lb/week from now on, so I am really excited about that. On average, at this stage of development, babies measure 16 inches long. Okay people, that's over 7.5 lbs and 32 inches of baby wrapped up in this belly! Amazing. I have surpassed the waist & weight measurements I recorded at the time of Zoe's birth...you could say I pretty much look overdue! :) Wesley's nickname for me is the "mothership" and he calls Zbug my little "droid."
This week I started my non-stress tests on Mondays & Thursdays. Both days the babies perfomed well & their heart rates were considered to be healthy. I also met with my OB & was able to ask her a million ?s about the possibilities during birth/delivery of these little ones. I will continue to have non-stress tests twice a week, doppler ultrasounds every other week, growth ultrasounds once a month, and OB/midwife appts. every two weeks. I can't wait for Gretchen to come in 2 weeks to help out with Zoe during all of those office visits!
What a crazy journey this has been, and as it winds down I try to remind myself each day of the miracle I am living. I never want to take for granted this awesome experience!
