Today I am 30 weeks 4 days pregnant and feeling great! I had another routine OB appointment this afternoon, and everything looked good! My total weight gain for this pregnancy is up to 30 pounds, my blood pressure remains normal, and my uterus is measuring 36 cm. Baby A’s heart was beating at 154 bpm and Baby B’s at 144 bpm.
The doctor commented that our goal should be to make it five more weeks, at which point our babies would probably be able to go home from the hospital with us. I told him I’m hoping (and praying!!!) to make it at least that long!
My next appointment and ultrasound is scheduled for Friday, April 24th, right at the 32-week mark. That day we will also be sent to Labor & Delivery for a non-stress test, the first of what will be a weekly routine from here on out. I pray that my babies will pass these tests with flying colors and that there will be no cause for alarm (or false alarm, for that matter)!
To the many of you who are praying for us, THANK YOU! Thank you for caring, and thank you for being the Body of Christ to us. May God bless you richly just as He is us for whom you are praying!
