How far along? 35 weeks
Baby Size: We had an ultrasound today and Baby A is about 6 pounds and Baby B is about 5 pounds 7 ounces, which is just about right.
Total weight gain: 49lbs (!!!). I've seen a big jump recently as I've started swelling a bit
Maternity clothes? Love this cozy maternity shirt from Pink Blush. I'm sadly outgrowing a lot of the maternity shirts I own
Stretch Marks? I am seeing my first signs of them as of the last week, which honestly, I'd be surprised if I didn't get any with this pregnancy.
Sleep: Pretty decent. Better than when I was pregnant with Victoria
Best moment this week: Our 35 week ultrasound today. It was great news all around!
Miss Anything? Working out
Movement: Both babies are head down and squirm around a lot. It is quite interesting to see so much movement in opposite directions!
My movement has slowed down big time as of this week. I am very achy all the time, so I have to be very careful about what I spend my energy on.
Food cravings: Sugar. The bad kind ;)
Gender Prediction: We found out at 20 weeks that we have 2 girls on the way!
Symptoms: Swelling all over, but mostly my feet and legs. Achy back, lower belly, and hips. Vericose veins and a couple small stretch marks showed up recently as well (Oh Joy!).
Labor Signs: Very little, honestly. I have a braxton hicks contraction or two now and then, but not very often.
Mood: Happy! And content! And feeling ready to conquer this whole twin thing!
Looking forward to: Meeting these babies! I am thankful that pregnancy takes as long as it does, because I've needed all this time to wrap my head around 2 babies, but I am actually feeling really good about it now. I am feeling comfortable with our birth plan and the idea of breastfeeding twins. I don't remember feeling this comfortable with my first pregnancy, so this must be a benefit of a 2nd pregnancy.
