The Belly Diaries - 33 weeks

[photo to come]

You're still hanging in there boys! Thank you thank you thank you thank you.

But the hugest news of this week is that we are all going to be seeing each other for the first time next week!! On Wednesday - 09/09/09! You will be 34 weeks and 1 day. Daddy and I can't wait to meet you.

We've all had some more tests this week, and my little one, your umbilical cord is having a few problems. There is a bit of a blockage, which means that all that lovely blood, oxygen and nutrition you need to keep growing is finding it a little difficult to get to you. This means that you're not growing as much as we'd all like, so the doctors all agree that the best course of action is to let you both make your grand entrance a little earlier than expected so that we can make sure you get all the stuff you need to grow big and strong.

Mama's friend Rachel had her little twin girls this week, and they were born at the age you are now. They are doing very very well, breathing on their own, and learning how to eat. I have been down to the special care nursery to visit them, and they are just beautiful. I am sure you boys and Moleigh and Leeyah will be friends.

On Saturday, about 35 or so of Mama's good girlfriends are coming to the hospital to visit us and to celebrate your pending arrival! I'll make sure I get lots and lots of photos so that when you're older you can look back and see all the love that is already surrounding you.

Not long to go now my darlings. We can't wait to hold you. We love you so much.

Your Mama
