35 Weeks

Sleep
It's a little better this week. However, I am now feeling contractions at night. Up until this time, once I fell asleep, I'd sleep through the contractions. Now they are getting so strong that they actually wake me up in the middle of the night. The pain is still excruciating in my pelvis. The stretching is like NOTHING I HAVE EVER FELT before in my life.

My Size/Development
I will know my size tomorrow at my appointment.

The Babies' Size/Development
The babies are putting on more fat, but if they were born now - they wouldn't have any serious complications. They more than likely would be considered "growers and feeders" (the title, "growers and feeders" is given to babies who simply have to "grow and eat" in order to graduate from the NICU all together).

Excitement
I have been completely off the Nifedipine for a week now! There are only 21 days until the last possible day they will schedule me for an induction! Let's hope for a little bit sooner, though!

Random Twin Fact
Postpartum Depression is five times more common in mothers of multiples than mothers of singleton newborns.
