33 Weeks

Another week down! If we make it one more week we will reach the point where if the babies try to come they will not stop labor! Hooray! Keep on cookin babies :)

Weeks along: 33 weeks

Trimester: THIRD!

Frequency of OB appointments: Weekly. 

How I'm feeling: Dizziness and lightheadedness is getting worse again. Back pain is horrible if I don't wear my maternity belt (forgot that the other day at work....will not be making that mistake again). Really tired. Having Braxton Hicks contractions numerous times a day now.

Total Weight Gain:  28 pounds

Babies are the size of: a honeydew. One of my baby apps says they are just over 17 inches long at this stage and 4 pounds

Movement: Lots of kicking and punching in this mama's belly. Also lots of contractions going on (still just Braxton Hicks I think)

Cravings:  Apple Crisp! Mmmm sooo good

Sleep: Still sleeping without the need for extra pillows. 

Wedding ring: On

Stretch marks: Nada!! 

Belly button: Innie! *But its a tight innie!! 

Bedrest/Restrictions: No change at this point, still only can work 4 days a week and need to take it easy on weekends. 

What I miss: Being comfortable!

Best part of the week:  Having a relaxing weekend at home with Ed and Maverick. So nice to be able to enjoy these last few weeks of freedom!

New Baby Gear:  Got the twins their going home outfits. Also made baby girl's hairbow and headband holder. 

What I'm looking forward to this week: Making it through one more week....if we hit 34 weeks we will make it to the point of no return meaning the would not try to stop labor if it started. So so so close!!! I can't believe we've made it this far. 

Whats left to do before twins comePick names, Hang nursery artwork, pack hospital bags, get a plan together for Mav in case babies come before the 10th. Start the search for the Nanny. Pamper myself ;) Enjoy the last few nights of sleeping through the night! Spoil Maverick rotten!! 

Until next week....keep cooking twinkies!!! :)
