I'm 33 weeks and counting down now. My ob has said 36 would be max. We have to let my perinatalogist decide but I know they are both so happy I've made it this far! I was starting to get antsy around 30 weeks. Knowing that I've made it that far, but was still looking at 4-6 wks left! But at 32 weeks, my ob gave me bathroom privileges! Who would've thought using regular restroom and shower would be life's little luxuries! It was hard getting up the first 3 days. The nurse told me to stop sprinting out of bed, can you blame me??? After a week, I'm a pro and getting up now great. My blood pressure has now gone back to my normal (110/60) as it had been in 80/50 range. I have started physical therapy, in bed, to strengthen my muscles. Hope to walk some more before delivery so I can be ready afterwards.
Also had another ultrasound. Ava is weighing 4 lbs 8 oz! She is in the 46th percentile. Aiden is 3 lbs 10 oz and in the 19th percentile. They both passed their biophysical profiles with 8 of 8. They are still watching Aiden because he is behind his sister on weight and still has occasional heart decelerations. I will have another u/s next week and my doctors will make the decision to deliver or keep me going at that point.
I can't believe we are almost there!! B has been so great and washing all the babies' newborn/ preemie clothing I bought for the hospital.
Thank you all for all the continued prayers. God is amazing and the reason I have made it this far! Our babies have had an additional 72 days in utero while I've been on hospital bed rest. Plus the 3 weeks I spent on bed rest at home.
Our Lord has taught me that All things are truly possible with Him!

3 monitors 3 times a day. Yes, that's my belly underneath. 2 monitors to measure babies' heart rates and 1 to see any contractions.
Computer screen: Babies' heart rate on top, contraction monitor on bottom.
