Moving right along...34 weeks

WOW we are moving right along. It is hard to believe that I'm already 34 weeks. The babies continue to be very active and move all of the time. I treasure all of those movements with them. Yesterday I had an ultrasound and my regular OB joined in to see the ultrasound for himself. He was able to see the velamentous cord insertion. We discussed possibly doing an amnio at 36 weeks to check for lung maturity. Jeremy and I are very nervous about doing this procedure. Both doctors said that we can refuse it and it will not be a problem. They also mentioned that we could decide if we want to deliver that week. So, as it stands now we don't have an exact delivery date, but we will more than likely have two precious little girls in a couple of weeks. As soon as we have more definite details, I'll be sure to write a post.
 
 
How Far Along: 34 Weeks
Size of baby: Avery at 4 lb. 12 oz. and Harper at 4 lb. 2 oz.
Gender: Two precious girls...Harper Faith Kendle and Avery Ryan Kendle
Maternity Clothes: Still wearing my pj's.
Weight gain: 24 pounds total. Gained 3 pounds since last week!
Sleep: Still sleeping really well.
Symptoms: None this week.
Cravings: No cravings!
Best moments this week:
  • Over the past week I have had lots of visitors, which I absolutely love. It makes the time fly by a lot faster.
  • Tomorrow our rocker is being delivered. Thank you Mema and Papa, I know it will look perfect in the nursery!
  • Also, this past weekend my friends Mindy and Christie added a few more touches to the nursery. Here are some pictures...






Pregnancy Highlights:
Their fat layers — which will help regulate her body temperature once they're born — are filling them out, making them rounder. Their skin is also smoother than ever. Their central nervous system is maturing. Babies born between 34 and 37 weeks who have no other health problems generally do fine. They may need a short stay in the neonatal nursery and may have a few short-term health issues, but in the long run, they usually do as well as full-term babies.
