Less Than Two Weeks Until the Twinkies Arrive

So today I am 36 weeks pregnant. I can't believe it. It really has gone by quickly. The twinkies are scheduled for their csection on July 22nd. Halle is breach and Ben is head down hence the need for the csection. They look great. At my Maternal Fetal Medicine appointment last week. Ben was almost 7lbs and Halle was almost 6 lbs. I'm feeling pretty good considering I am measuring about 46 weeks pregnant and have gained almost 40 lbs. I'm really quite a sight. Nothing on me has really grown except my stomach, so I have this huge stomach with skinny arms and legs. It's kind of funny.

I am really, really ready for them to come out. I feel that they are good to go and if they came today they would spend little to no time in the NICU. I have been incredibly blessed because this pregnancy has been pretty easy. I also have been able to enjoy it. My doctor said something to me that I think is important to keep in mind particularly if you have had to undergo infertility treatments. She said just because it was challenging to get pregnant doesn't mean that your pregnancy is going to be challenging. I have found this to be very true. I know it's hard for so many of us who have struggled to get pregnant because we always think there is something that could go wrong. Try to enjoy your pregnancy and hopefully the challenging part - getting pregnant- is over and the pregnancy itself will be smooth sailing.


  1. Hey Running_girl!! Whoo hoo for week 36! Can't wait for the birth announcement!

  2. I saw your blog listed on Mo's CCRM blogroll and the title of this post caught my attention. I have b/g twins (CCRM babies) born at 33 weeks last November. Congrats on making it to 36 weeks. And they are so big! Mine were both around 5 lbs at birth and the day they were born I was measuring 40 weeks. I wish you all the BEST! I'll check back on you soon.

  3. Hi Running Girl - I just cycled at CCRM and have 9 frozen blasts waiting for me to get back out there to transfer a few. Your blog gives me so much hope that I may just get knocked up this Fall. Best of luck to you and your babies in the upcoming weeks!
