36.5 weeks and still cookin’…

It has to be any day right?!?! The pressure is so intense that I just can’t imagine going another day, but somehow I keep doing it. I am having contractions/Braxton Hicks that are about 12 HOURS apart (lower back pain, menstrual like cramps, and super tightening of the tummy).  I keep hoping that they will become closer, but not yet. Or I’d be okay if my water just broke and then go into labor.  See, I am trying to be flexible!!

Anyway, everyone seems to be ready except for F and Z! I know that each day is precious and the longer they stay in the better, but all my docs have said that they should be just fine if they were to arrive now, so come on out!!!

My next doc appt is Friday and if I make it till then, I may tell him that I am not leaving until I have these babies! We’ll see how that goes!!

I just knew you were in the hospital, had the babies and would report that all is well...I am laughing right now not at you but at them that they are taking their own sweet time. I guess when they are ready .....all on their terms. Funny.

Allison said...

I think it will be Wednesday. Finley will weigh 6 lbs, 3 oz and Zane will be 5 lbs, 11 oz. Those are my bets, where do I send money? Will you accept diapers instead of cash?

Amy said...

Oh, I like Allison's predictions! I think they are a little bit bigger than that... I think they are both over 6 lbs! :)

Kelley and Carl Loredo said...

Amazing! I bet you are soooo ready!

If you are online today, will you please send me Amy King's email address? I left her a comment on her blog but am not sure what address it goes to... We have a family friend rushing (not at UT), and she needs a ChiO rec. Not sure who could send me a form but figured she would be able to tell me.

Thanks! Hang in there! Am so excited for you!

Oh my goodness. I'm obsessively checking your blog. I was completely convinced you had the babies this weekend!! It's okay, they will come when they want to just like they will do what they want to when they get here anyway...they are just prepping you for how in control they are going to be!

Allison said...

If I was there maybe I could get a more accurate reading. Also I think the hold up is that Zane is blocking the exit. If Finley was at the door, she might have already snuck out.

Do you feel like you are a watched pot trying to boil?

Oh My!! I guess they"re going to do it Their Way!! Everyone at Eanes is waiting for the "Phone Call"!! I'm sure that you are ready too!! We might have to get a "sub" to regularly check your blog!!
My prayers are for all of you all and a Grand Entrance" soon by Z and F!! Karen

I just had to tell you that even Ohio is anxiously awaiting the news that Finley and Zane have decided to make thier arrival! You're already an amazing mom by keeping those babies safe and sound this long... way to go Suzanne!


Kathy said...

Yes, Suzanne tell that doctor you are not leaving Friday (the 18th by the way)(oh also by the way, my wonderful birthday)without having F & Z. They want to make their appearance on Allison's Aunts Birthday!!! Davis couldn't wait until the 18th. He would have really been cooked! (hee hee)

Good Suzanne, whenever they decide to make an appearance.
