Twin Pregnancy - Week 35

Yes, counting down, getting closer each day.

Weight has hit 80kg today and high blood pressure starts to appear on me with 130/85. At home is measuring 142/80, scary.... HB also low at a reading of 7.6, I think their machine having problem, not me....Hope so. And, I left the clinic with 2 more types of medication, in total, I am consuming 7 types of medication.

Left twin remains in breech position, so it is confirm to be a GA C-section on 12 Dec. Less than 2 weeks from now. 越来越紧张了.

This belt has been on me to help support my tummy but for the past 3 week, its no longer in used, it will drop off, tummy too big.


My medication: 1. Utrogestan 100mg (to relax uterus to prevent preterm labour), 2. Folic Acid (finishing soon and will not continue after that), 3. Dhaxtra Softgel (Fishoil), 4. Calcium tablet (Pink colour), 5. Floron tablet (Brown colour, Iron tablets, 2x per day as I need for blood production), 6. Ferbeaplex (Red colour, another kind of iron tablet newly prescribed due to my low HB), 7. Apo-Methyldopa (Yellow tablet, for High BP controls, 3x per day).

Twin Pregnancy - Weeks 34

It's 34 weeks now and counting down. Gynae has booked for me my delivery on week 37. I feel fearful and looking forward to download the heavy weight. Left twin weighing about 2.29kg and right twin weighing 2.3+kg. Left twin has switched position to breech again. Every 2 weeks we have to guess what posture they are showing. It's quite unusual that they are still switching position at this advanced stage, especially twins.

Less physical movement now, technically I left with 3 weekends to prepare for everything, always feeling not enough time to prepare but I guess that's every mum-to-be worries, things never got ready.

At least I still have a chance to attend this year company Dinner and Dance and get to win the 31st prize, a BackJoy seat support which is laying around in my house with not much use to my family.

This medication was given to me in week 32, to be taken for 4 weeks to relax the uterus to prevent preterm labour.

The 1st homecook food after I known of my own pregnancy. And it will be the last before delivery as it is really too tiring to preparing till washing up. tsk tsk ***

Japanese sweet potato porridge, fried onion eggs and fried bean spout, my girl love these so much although I find them blend, to reduce salt to cut down water retention.

See the layer of fats under the skin, the outer layer of skin has been stretch till fold lines are permenant there at tis moment.

Twin Pregnancy - 3rd Trimester

Everything are BIG!!! Big legs, big foots, big tummy, big body, big bum, except...still not very big...

Going out will attract attention cos of my super big tummy, with a waistline of...if I can still call it waistline...47 inch.

Today is at weeks 32, hoping to keep them till at least 36 weeks in my tummy, target 2.5kg each, not sure whether will they reach that weight as they have slowed down their growth this week but the mummy is still putting on weight, OMG!!!

Before weeks 28, right twin was always in breech position. On weeks 28, both heads are pointing downwards. On weeks 30, left twin turned upright and on weeks 32, both heads pointing down again. So much activities in there, no wonder I am so tired. Usually the right twin is 200grams slightly heavier but now, the left twin is catching up, weighing slightly heavier then right twin, both at approx 1600 grams. With their growth slowing down, I will be happy if the are borned with weights of 2kg each.

My movement are very slow now, almost immoblised. Climbing stairs of more than 10 stairs are impossible now. I have thousands and one stuff that I know I need to do but just couldn't get it started. It is a big achievement to have completed this page of blog that seems not very organised.. Ho ho ho!!!

It's so swollen that sometimes the toes are only half a inch.

Little hands massaging my fat legs but recently this service seem no longer valid.

Wonder what are they doing, swifting sideways.

Taken on 08 Oct, that was about weeks 28.

Taken around weeks 31.
