35 Weeks

Ok, made it another week. I am hoping to keep these two in for another week or so. I would like them out now, but I would rather them safe than me comfortable. Brian and I are now about as ready as we will ever be so we are just waiting for the big day. Today I meet with the pediatrician to make sure we like the office. Then I head for another NST at 2. Hopefully everyone will cooperate.

35 Weeks:

Your baby weighs about 6 lbs (2750g) and measures about 20.7 inches (46cm) in length. Crown to rump measurement is about 13.5 inches (34cm).

Your baby now feels lower in your pelvis.

Your baby continues to grow, kick, and move about.

Your baby's face has filled out and the cheeks now look plump and full. Fat baby cheeks are caused by fat deposits, but also by powerful sucking muscles which your baby has been honing by sucking her thumb.

Your baby's skull is firm, but it is not hard as it needs to give a little when it is passing through the birth canal.

Your baby's head is probably down by now, but about three percent of babies present in a breech (bottom down) position. Your doctor may try to turn your baby around if it is in a breech position by putting pressure on your abdomen. This is called external cephalic version (ECV) and is effective in about 50% of cases. If your baby is in a breech position, ask your doctor about what your options are for the birth. You may or may not require a cesarean delivery.

I still say the 9th sounds like a good day to have those girls! ;)

Congrats on making it to 35 weeks. You're soooo close!

YAY.... You made it further than I did. Keep the babies in there as long as you can. I would have much rather been physically uncomfortable than deal with the NICU. I HATED the NICU.

I'm so glad you made it this far. I hope your babies keep growing and getting healthier and stronger every day.



About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
