Update weeks 28 - 30

  • At my 28-week appointment, the babies weighed 2lb 11oz (Baby A) and 2 lb 8oz (Baby B). That's over 5 pounds of baby!
  • Baby A is now in a breech position (butt-down), and Baby B is transverse (sideways). They still have plenty of time to move, but I wouldn't mind if they turn head-down and just stay that way. The later it gets, the more crowded they are, and the harder it is for them to shift position. If Baby A isn't head-down when it's time for delivery, I will be having a C-section. I would strongly prefer a natural delivery, so please pray that they move into good positions soon.
  • My fundal height is measuring about 5 weeks ahead, and I'm definitely a lot bigger than I was at this point with Abigail. But people keep telling me that I look small for carrying twins.
  • At week 29, I started having Non-Stress Tests (NST's) twice a week. (The testing is just the normal procedure for twin pregnancies - it's not because of any complications or problems). I go into Labor & Delivery and they hook me up to a monitor that watches the babies heart rates. As long as everything looks good, I just have to be on the monitor for a minimum of 20 minutes. So far, they've been doing great. It's kind of a pain having so many appointments, but at least the nursing staff will know me when I come in to deliver!
  • My feet have started to swell on a daily basis. They feel squishy like jello on the tops, and I can feel them jiggle when I walk. Ewwwwwww!
  • My friends Song and Clarissa are throwing a baby shower for me on July 13.
  • We bought a minivan, so we now have a vehicle that will actually be able to hold our whole family (with all three carseats). Praise God for the way He provides for all our needs!


  1. Okay here's prayers going up for you that the babies will drop into the correct position for birth! So, that you do not have to have a c-section!

    Just want you to know, I had twins and I had people at church praying so that I wouldn't have to have a c-section because I had a 2 yr old at home. Praise God!!! I delivered V- with both 27 min. apart! God is FAITHFUL!

  2. so pleased everything is going well
    your poor feet I get like that every time i was preggy
