Carrying Twins 37.5 Weeks Is Hard...
by Kelly Turner
I carried my boy/girl twins for a grand total of 37.5 weeks. My son weighed in at 6 lbs, 11 ounces, my daughter was 6 lbs, 6 ounces.
The doctors told me I would feel no movement after around the 26th-28th week because of room restrictions, well my daughter did not follow that advice, she was flipping the day I went into labor.
I was told I would carry them 32-35 weeks and that did not happen either! LOL! It was a rough last month and I was always short of breath, but the wonder of seeing my daughter move all over and stick limbs out was a wonderful one.
One thing that was difficult for me was personal hygiene. That topic was never addressed in any pregnancy books. By the 7th month my hands went aorund my belly and i could just touch my fingertips - now, how is an expectant mom expected to shave? The answer is simple - start training your significant other NOW!! :-)
Good luck and enjoy your pregnancy, it really does go by fast even if it is 37.5 weeks!!
