30 Weeks!

Image

I feel like this was my goal all along.. if I could just get to 30 weeks then its all a downhill slide after this!  I know being born this early still means issues and NICU time, but for some reason it was just some relief to get her.  Now of course i feel like a time bomb that could go off any second!  Lord knows i never have kids early, but with twins, there is always a WHAT IF??

The babies are around 3lbs each and it literally feels like I can feel them growing by the second! According to the apps, they are gaining 1/2 a pound each week.. aka ONE POUND total, each week, that I will have in my belly.  Ive been saying ouch for weeks, but now its DOUBLE ouch!.

I made it!   Every day that i felt like i couldn’t keep going… ive made it this far!  At this point i lay in bed each night and think I cant possibly keep going… the pain is getting far more intense than i expected!  My back and hips think that I am due (or overdue) any day now… and im not even close!   Im more tired now than Ive ever been… pretty sure that being up all night with newborns would be easier than this!
