I’ve made it to 32 weeks, which is a huge milestone for twins. Who am I kidding, every day is a milestone when you’re pregnant with twins, especially when you’re waddling around looking like this:
Our last check up was on Monday and both babies are doing great. The average for twins delivery is 35 weeks and average weight is 5.5 lbs, so we were thrilled to hear that our girls are 4.4 lbs and 4.6 lbs at 32 weeks! I’m just hoping to stay pregnant as long as possible (our goal is 38 weeks) and bed rest for the past month seems to be helping. I’ll continue to be on bed rest until I deliver, which isn’t fun, but I expected it. It will be so worth it in the end for these girls to grow as healthy as possible.
Hanging out in “bed rest central” ready for my doctors appointment (the highlight of my week)
Waiting is the hardest thing to do in my opinion; I am so impatient. My current situation has made me sit around and think and worry (I mean you can only binge watch so many shows on Netflix and read so many books). I recently read a great devotion on prayer and was reminded to turn those thoughts and worry into prayer, and have peace while waiting for prayers to be answered.
Please keep us in your prayers over the next few weeks. I don’t know if I’ll have many more of these updates before the babies come, if I can I will, but I will definitely be updating instagram, so be sure to follow me there: @kelleylively
