twinpack: 32 weeks


How far along? 32 weeks (compare to 32 weeks with my son here)

Maternity clothes? yes but they're getting pretty tight or shirts don't stretch long enough

Stretch marks? no, surprisingly 

Sleep: been waking up a couple times a night now. that little stretch of awesome nights of sleep is pretty much over i think 

Best moment this week: staying pregnant another week!! and whenever our little guy comes to visit - AND when I get to leave my room for little wheelchair trips around the hospital :) 

Miss anything? being at home with my family

Movement: bigger babies, bigger movements ... all the time. my bump is constantly a shapeshifter and it freaks everyone out (which makes me laugh) - but some of their movements are so big it makes me a little sick! 

Food cravings: i'm at that point in pregnancy where food is just food, some sounds amazing but most is just eh. ...maybe it's hospital food? ;)

Anything making you queasy or sick: smells 

Genders: a boy and a girl!  

Labor signs: some contractions here (including some i don't feel and the nurses ask 'are you feeling those contractions? ... what contractions? so, no)  and there but nothing consistent or strong

Symptoms: pains, being uncomfortable basically all the time. babies are growing which is making me more uncomfortable every day - but i'll take it! sore back, sore hips, waddling, achy legs, walking VERY slow, hard to breathe... i don't know how women who are having multiples make it to 40 weeks. god bless them all.

Differences at this point between your singleton pregnancy and twin pregnancy: hospital bed rest

Belly button in or out? flat or out, depending on their positions

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: depends on who you ask ;) 

Blood sugar: pretty good this week!

Looking forward to: laying in this boring room for a LONG time to keep these babies growing on the inside! but i'm also ready to meet them. i've been on hospital bedrest a few days shy of A MONTH.

Bitch of the week: ...bed rest. in the hospital. but i will take it over standing in the NICU all day and night. <3

How far along? 29 weeks (compare to 29 weeks with my son here)

Maternity clothes? yes

Stretch marks? no, surprisingly 

Sleep: this week has been quite a roller coaster, but sleep is getting better.

Best moment this week: the sprinkle was very nice - and not giving birth was a big plus 

Miss anything? not intensely

Movement: i should change this question to 'when is there NOT movement?'

Food cravings: still similar to my last pregnancy, when i see or hear about something and it sounds really delicious, i have to get it soon because i can't stop thinking about it. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: smells - my sense of smell is suddenly in HYPER-sensitive mode.

Genders: a boy and a girl!  

Labor signs: well. i'm now in the hospital on bed rest until the babies are born. my water started leaking on monday morning and the goal now is to keep them in as long as possible. so i'm not in active labor, but i'm here to make sure that doesn't happen. 

big brother visit <3

Symptoms: pains, being uncomfortable basically all the time. sore back, sore hips, waddling, achy legs, walking VERY slow, hard to breathe...
