The eve of 35.(updated)

34 weeks 6 days

  • I’m happy to report that we are almost into week 35. Tomorrow marks the first day of the 35th week for the babies. Each week means that the babies will spend less and less time in the NICU.
  • Not too much new here – I’ve been busy pumping and cleaning and cooking (I’ve baked 2 lots of “lactation cookies” – I modified the recipe to increase the amount of oats, flax and brewers yeast – so it’s even healthier – and my freezer is now full of quick snacks.
  • I’ve weeded my garden and all the lovely plants we planted last year are coming back to life, including the tulips that we planted last fall (maybe if the babies stay gestating I will take a pic).
  • The next OB appointment is on Wednesday (looking forward to seeing M and hearing about how long more the babies may bake). The OB’s original plan was to plan an induction once M reaches 37 weeks according to her date-line(May 13th) – M’s OB has the due date as June 3rd and, myself and the high risk doc calculated the due date as May 31st.
  • predicted that the babies “twin due date” is May 9th, mother’s day, and we’re hoping that the babies bake until then.

I know days of silence may have  you wondering if the babies are here, and I promise, we will post something if anything exciting happens, Mr. Duck has a blackberry and I can post from that.

And now some pics of the nursery:

    Love the nursery! You will be happy that you have those shelves.

    35 weeks is amazing! Just a couple more weeks and you will be meeting your new little babies!

    How much are you getting from the induced lactation? I did it too and I am sooooo happy that I did! You will not regret all the work at all. Feel free to email me if you need any encouragement – it’s hard to keep going and I almost quit several times!

    Thanks for the updates.

    I love the nursery! It is so cute and has so much charm. I especially love the desk/changing table.

    I can’t believe you are so close to meeting your babies after such a long, difficult journey. I am so very happy for you.

    I HEART the nursery, so well done. I love the converted desk.

    So excited that you are getting so close to meeting your little babes. What a long, windy wait, but you are almost there.

    Can’t wait to hear how the appt goes tomorrow.
