Twins: 29 Weeks

29 weeks

I’ve got two three-pounders this week which, as you smart people have probably already figured out, means six pounds of baby and a few more pounds of fluid, placenta, and all that good stuff.  AND, on top of that, at least a month to go.  Twins lungs are fully developed and functional on their own at 34 weeks so the doc says if they happen to want to come anytime after that, he won’t stop ‘em.  However, he won’t let them lounge in utero over 38 weeks so we’ll see.  One month?  Two months?  Who knows?  I do know that we’ve got a complete disaster of a nursery still (of which I’ll share my plans/vision Saturday) and currently have just half of their cloth diapers.  Cest la vie, right? 

As promised last week, here are yesterday’s ultrasound pics:29 weeks 1

29 weeks 2Top of their heads…twin a’s face is pointed towards twin b’s ear.  Telling secrets?  Whispering sweet nothings?  Giggling about all the random stuff mommy eats or that daddy says?  I guess what is said in utero, stays in utero…


  1. As always, you look fantastic. I'm excited to see what you have planned for the nursery. We hit a wall with our house projects, but I'm itching to get started again and can always use inspiration!

    And what cloth diapers are you using? We have some pockets that we like, but I'm always curious to see what others use.

    1. Thanks Francine! You're sweet...I'm glad the heaviness of them doesn't show in a picture! :)
      We are using the Flip System...prefolds and covers...and are buying them through My sister uses the same system and loves it. I'll put up a picture of them in the nursery post. :)

  2. Sheena, you look ravishing!!

  3. Oh my gosh, Sheena, you crack me up! "...What is said in utero, stays in utero." Too funny! Your babies are in for a treat, that's for sure.
    You look terrific, by the way. I'm praying for you and that you're able to sleep, eat, walk, etc., in relative comfort. Hopefully not too much heartburn or ankle-swelling, etc.

    By the way, I was thinking about you a lot this past weekend--we created an 'office' in our basement (read: a non-conforming bedroom for Lindsay, our oldest, who is 13 and BEYOND ready for her own room)... well, when I say "we", I mean we hired someone to do it. So anyway, once it was finished, it was time to paint it Pepto-pink! Not something Jim or I would've chosen, but as we kept saying, "She's the one who's got to live with it." Anyway, once the room was done being built, our contractor said, "three of the baseboards are the original ones, with that pine stain on them, and the two new ones (around the doorway) are a blonde wood.... what do you want me to do?" I told him to leave it, because I wanted to paint all the baseboards in the house white.... Jim was NOT enthusiastic about it, but I told him to leave it to me. He wasn't convinced that the whole house needed it done, but I'm just going to go ahead and tackle a bit here and a bit there, and what's he going to do about it? Un-paint them? I don't think so! And after I told him you'd done your whole house and went through steps on your blog, he felt more confident about it. So, after spending Saturday painting the walls pink, I spent all of Mother's Day, pretty much locked up in that room, painting two coats of white onto all the baseboards. He was surprised how good it looked. Thanks so much for being an inspiration, in many ways!

  4. Oh goodness, you make pregnancy look amazing! You are so cute Sheena!
