Pregnant with twins…likely the LAST time I will get to type that in an update (I hope and pray I didn’t just jinx us right there!). 37 weeks and 4 days as of this morning HOLY COW!
Pregnant with Twins – 37 weeks
Best moment this week: Realizing this is the LAST week I will be giving you all an update on our pregnancy and from this point forward it will be Balanced Mom updates…oh my it is enough to make me tear up. I have never been more excited to meet someone (ok two someones) in my ENTIRE life! We had an appt this past Tuesday and the doctor said they would induce (or C section, kind of up to me at this point, yikes!) you on Monday I couldn’t have been more excited just to get this show on the road. So Monday/Tuesday is THE action day!
Movement: Still a going to town in there playing like brothers do…however, I’d say they are slowing down and not so ‘kicky’ but more just ‘movey’ like…I know that isn’t the best description but if I could imagine what it is like in my big ole belly I’m betting they are just plum out of room to kick too hard
Food Cravings: Nothing in particular, they have definitely dropped some so I can eat almost a full meal without discomfort which is super duper nice. Anything cold (well after breakfast I’m stuck on egg white oats for breakfast) sounds good, I love eating frozen fruit, chomping on ice, and salads…I did randomly want Subway the other day, strange!
Sleep: Not terrible for this stage in the game. Bathroom breaks happen so often that they are almost normal to me now (who knew we should have stocked up on even MORE toilet paper at Costco our last trip!). Just getting NERVOUS for the big day and realizing, oh no I actually have to get them out of there…it seems so surreal at times. Oh and trying to roll over or get up – well you try holding a 20 lb ball in your stomach and roll around – not fun!
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody: Happy..other than one melt down as we were going to bed, yep all out tears kind of break down, I’ve been happy happy happy! I mean who gets a new ‘forever’ house and twins in the same week, I’m one blessed gal.
That all being said I plan to be back with a final post tomorrow before the ‘big’ day – please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers for healthy happy mom and babies!
