35 Weeks & 4 Days...

With a blog title like this, someone may think that this post will provide a pregnancy update. Don't worry, no pregnancy here. When I was pregnant with the boys, I made it all the way to 35 weeks & 4 days before Andrew decided they were all ready to enter the world. I remember celebrating each and everyday I was able to carry these boys. However, it has not been until recently that I realized how lucky we were to make it as far as we did. With a delivery at 35 weeks & 4 days, I was able to deliver three very healthy babies that were able to stay with me in my hospital room and were discharged at the same time I was.

As of today, the boys are 35 weeks & 4 days old. Today marks the day that they have been outside of my body for the same length of time as I was pregnant with them. It seems like just yesterday that I was learning I was pregnant and then after a blink of an eye they have been growing outside of my body longer than they were growing on the inside. It has been an amazing journey!


  1. Our babies were born at the *exact* same gestation! 35 weeks and 4 days! I too had take home babies, though I had HELLP, and had to stay in the hospital for a week.

    Just thought that was cool!

  2. What a cool thing to blog about! As you know.... I'm trying really hard to make it to at least 34wks!
