How I’m Feeling/Updates:
And I’m still huge.
I have an appointment tomorrow to see the girls & meet with a consultant. I’m going to be asking some questions – why they don’t do cervical checks to see if I’m dilating & what the heck I need to pack since it’s not like the States where most things are provided for you!
The girls rooms are coming along still. I don’t have their bedding yet, it’s on it’s way eventually. Most everything is done except for the decorating – that’s really bugging me. I need to get some frames so I can print some stuff off but some stuff is still in the mail so I’ll have to be patient!
My RLS (restless leg syndrome) is still an issue. I always lay down in our bed and if I can’t fall asleep I end up in the guest room. Something about a more firm mattress helps me sleep better. It’s pretty annoying if you ask me because I HATE sleeping away from the hubs. But, at least this way we both get sleep at night. And, I don’t wake him up if I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
Things are getting a
bit lot uncomfortable around these parts. I used to complain when I was in the home stretch with the boys and man – I never realized how very uncomfortable life is with 2 in your belly! I can’t even imagine having more than that!!! Ouch! I mean LITERALLY my stomach hurts from it being stretched. Like, legit pain bc it’s tight. Not cool. I tell Jesse about my friends who are pregnant and complain & I say – they have NO idea!!! And he laughs at me and reminds me I was the same way. And then I back down and realize this is all very true. I complained then as well. I’m pretty sure that pregnancy is not made for the weak no matter how many babies you have in there! Probably why woman have children and not men. They would die. Am I right ladies???
These girls are always moving around. They have been getting the hiccups lately too which makes me happy bc I know their lungs are getting stronger & their nervous system is developed as I read here:
In order for a fetus to hiccup in the womb, its central nervous system must be complete, according to TheLaborofLove.com. The central nervous system gives the fetus the ability to breathe in amniotic fluid. A hiccup results when the fluid enters and exits the fetus’s lungs, causing the diaphragm to contract rapidly. Fetal hiccups are quite common and can often be seen on an ultrasound as jumping or rhythmic movements. Fetal hiccups are reflexive and do not appear to cause discomfort. In addition, hiccups prepare the fetus’s lungs for healthy respiratory function after birth and they help regulate the baby’s heart rate during the third trimester.
So keep on hiccuping girls!!!
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.

Umm – what the heck?! How have I only gained .6 lbs this week. I think there has GOT to be something wrong with the scale. Maybe I read it wrong.
Absolutely nothing! Maybe the reason why I didn’t gain much weight this week.
2 sweet, bouncy girls!
Can you tell a difference from last week to this week, or am I just crazy?
Shoot – it could be both!
