How I’m Feeling/Updates:
YEAH!!!!!! I made it to 32 weeks! This is a huge milestone for me – I kept just telling myself I needed to get these babies to 32 weeks so they’d have the best chance possible of viability if born. And look at that. Here we are at 32 weeks. Praise God!
Yesterday was a good day, but all last week I laid low. I didn’t do much of anything and it was definitely best for the girls & I. I’m not really sure what came over me but yesterday, despite not getting a nap & being woken up before 6am I had enough energy to do laundry, sit outside with my boys most of the day, clean the kitchen AND cook dinner. I know – such an over-achiever I am (and i truly hope you said that in a yoda voice)
I got some crib sheets in the mail, so they’re in the wash this morning so I can promptly put them on. They aren’t the ones my friend is making for us – but they are the ones a dear friend bought for us! Thanks Dana! The tissue poms still need hung so I may have to recruit a friend to come over or get the hubs to do it for me this weekend. I’m on my last load of “baby wash” unless I get some more clothes from now until they arrive – so that’s a nice little break. I mean we all know I’ll be living in the garage once these girls come with all the laundry I’ll be doing – whew – I’m tired just thinking about it!!
My RLS (restless leg syndrome) is still around. I was able to actually sleep in our bed last night though so that makes me super happy! My poor husband usually wakes up to an empty bed in the morning bc I sneak out around midnight to the spare room. We didn’t end up switching the mattresses bc I thought it was pointless to do for just 4 more weeks.
One thing I’ve also noticed is that I don’t have that dark line that goes down the middle of your belly this go around. If you look closely I had it with both boys but don’t have it this time. So strange but I’m also a little glad, I always thought that thing was so gross looking. lol
I am afraid the girls have moved. A few days ago I had some god-awful pains and I just KNOW they were moving. I’m praying they are still head down, but we’ll find out at our scan tomorrow!
I started at 127 before I got pregnant – but was trying to get down to 125. So I consider my “goal” weight to be my “start” weight so that I can judge what I’m gaining based off of where I want to be afterwards.
8 weeks: 129 lbs
17 weeks: 134 lbs
18 weeks: 135.6 lbs
19 weeks: 136.2 lbs
20 weeks: 137.4 lbs
21 weeks: 137.8 lbs
22 weeks: 139.2 lbs
23 weeks: 141.1 lbs
24 weeks: 144.0 lbs
25 weeks: 145.8 lbs
26 weeks: 147.4 lbs
27 weeks: 149.5 lbs
28 weeks: 152.0 lbs
29 weeks: 154.0 lbs
30 weeks: 154.6 lbs
31 weeks: 157.8 lbs
32 weeks: 160.8 I gained 3 lbs this week
Total: 33.8 lbs
So last week I gained 3 lbs in one week and I thought it was odd, the next day when I weighed myself I dropped like 1.5 lbs so I’m assuming the same will ring true this go around. I will say that I have been starving this week. Like insanely starving! It’s not like I’m eating crappy foods either – I’m snacking on healthy stuff! String cheese, veggies, fruit, nuts, cereal – you get the idea. Anyway, I’m just hoping this means the girls are having a bit of a growth spurt & will have packed on some weight!
Popsicles! Seriously – I was drinking a gatorade the other day and posted on facebook how I had a craving for popsicles – and not a few minutes later my sweet neighbor brought me 2 of them!! Then, the next day, Jesse went out and bought me a box I’ve probably gone through half the box already – but MAN are they delicious!
2 sweet, bouncy girls!
