Today marks 29 weeks of pregnancy. Things have continued to be uneventful. At our last appointment with the specialist, they did an echocardiogram on the baby. Everything was perfect, and we were actually released from their care until we need to come back for a final, routine checkup around week 36 or 37 just to make sure everything is still looking good. In the meanwhile, I will continue seeing both an OB, as well as my midwife, for the regular prenatal appointments.
Something that had been weighing heavily on my mind was arranging the burial of the deceased twin. My husband had repeatedly offered to take care of this for me, but I declined - it really was something I wanted to plan and figure out myself, even though I didn't enjoy the actual process of doing so. This past week, I finally was able to get everything set up and planned, and it has given me great peace of mind to know that this aspect has now been taken care of.
I am feeling as comfortable and rested as can be expected at this stage. The weather here has been nice, which is a welcome change from my last pregnancy, when I was pregnant during several of the hot summer months. I do need more sleep at night than usual, close to 8 hours instead of my typical 6. Not having those couple of quiet hours to myself late each night and early every morning has really been cutting into my "me time" majorly. I just can't seem to get caught up on most things, especially blogging :) However, I have a couple of blog posts that just need to be wrapped up, and hope to be able to publish them shortly.
