We're joining Kim (aka wntg1grl), a stay-at-home mom of three who's expecting twins, on her exciting journey from bump-to-babies. Check back every week for the latest developments.

Week 33
What's Happening with Mom:
The hospital bag is packed! I packed four sleepers: one preemie and one newborn for each baby (matching ones of course!). Hats to keep their sweet heads warm, a receiving blanket and warm blanket each, and some diapers and wipes. Not too much but the bag is full. And we live near the hospital so I know I can have anything else delivered should I need it.

I have started by NST testing two times a week. For this, I go to the hospital and they check the amount of fluid around each baby, then I am on a monitor for at least 20 minutes to make sure the babies' hearts have accelerations.

Baby A is head down, and our sweet Baby B is breech...and they don't think she will flip. This means a c-section for me. I am warming up to the idea...something different to go along with all of the other differences in this pregnancy. 

What's Happening with Babies:

As our bodies grow bigger, the womb space is growing smaller. We're running outta room in here, so if you don't feel as much movement in week 33, that's usually why.

Question of the Week from Answers:

I am 33 weeks and three days...when should I pack my hospital bag? ivntee07

ChelC12:  I packed my bag at 34 weeks, but didn't have my son until 39 weeks. its better to be prepared though because there are still things you will need to pack the day of (heigene stuff). i liked being able to just relax the last few weeks and not have to worry aobut getting anything done.
