twinpack: 28 weeks

How far along? 28 weeks (compare to 28 weeks with my son here)

Maternity clothes? yes

Stretch marks? no, surprisingly 

Sleep: pretty good this week.

Best moment this week: my family and friends are hosting a sprinkle for me tomorrow, that should be fun! and my sister is coming in town to stay with us for the weekend :)

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: braxton hicks have officially made their appearance. 

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

Differences at this point between your singleton pregnancy and twin pregnancy: physical discomfort and getting tired and out of breath easily

Belly button in or out? flat 

Wedding rings on or off? on

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

Blood sugar: i saw dr awesome yesterday, he said i'm doing great even though i was a spaz about my a1c going up a tenth of a number. we made some nighttime adjustments to my basal rates and i woke up with a better number this morning! 

Looking forward to: the sprinkle, finishing up their room, organizing clothes and cooking them for a couple more months. 

Bitch of the week: just ... people who don't get it. and don't have filters. and think that just because someone is pregnant they are free to say whatever in the world they would like about your appearance. i want to make it clear that i do not think i look 'HUGE!' but apparently other people do ... i think i look bigger than at this point in my last pregnancy, but i'm carrying two babies. i FEEL heavier and more uncomfortable, but that doesn't mean i think i look awful or really big or anything. so someone else saying it is flat out rude. 

i am also growing two humans, so changes are going to happen in my appearance. i'm sorry if it bothers you, i will gladly stay miserable and try to not complain about the physical pain too much for the next 2 months if it means i don't have preemies in the NICU. i want them to stay growing inside of me so they come out healthy and on time.  if you don't have anything nice to say, keep your mouth shut. 


  1. Hell yes to all of this. You are doing the most amazing job growing two (TWO!!!!) babies. I know it's not easy, but you're almost there, and those babies are lucky to have you as their mom. Single digit weeks!!! (And you know what hashtag I want to put here but I will refrain out of respect for ... well, everyone.) :)

  2. You look great! Stay cool ;)
