Update: Week 34, Day 4

8 May

Our surrogate had another ultrasound a week ago (at 33 weeks, 3 days).

Our doctor tells us that everything looks normal and good with the continuing pregnancy. (Whew!)

There’s other good news, too: as of 33 weeks and 3 days (about a week ago), the babies weighed 4 lbs. 8 oz. and 4 lbs. 3 oz.

baby on a scale new dads on the blockWhen we met with our pediatrician for the first time (this weekend, right before our pre-baby bachelor party began), Dr. C told us that we should be hoping for 36 weeks of gestation, and 5 lbs each. If we can hit that, she said, we’re basically golden.

This Saturday we’ll hit 35 weeks and, considering that another week and a half will have gone by, hopefully the twins will be getting nearer that 5 lb. mark.

Fingers firmly crossed.


P.S. If you’re wondering what 35 weeks pregnant with twins looks like, the photos on Google Images are pretty amazing!
