Weeks along: 34 weeks
Frequency of OB appointments: Weekly. We will have two this week, one with our high risk doctor and then one with our OB after our weekly stress test/biophysical profile
How I'm feeling: Dizziness and lightheadedness is getting worse. Back pain is horrible. Exhausted. Having Braxton Hicks contractions numerous times a day now. Starting to get a little swelling on my ankles if I'm on my feet to long (cankles are not an attractive feature!). Excited!!! We have 4 weeks or less until our twinkies are here!!!!
Total Weight Gain: 31 pounds (I know its all baby but a little piece of me wants to cry every time I get on the scale now....that's a lot of weight!!!)
Babies are the size of: a pineapple
Movement: Lots of kicking and punching in this mama's belly. Also lots of contractions going on (still just Braxton Hicks I think)
Cravings: Fruit, especially pineapple
Sleep: Still sleeping without the need for extra pillows.
Wedding ring: On
Stretch marks: Nada!!
Belly button: Innie! *But its a VERY 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. Doctor did mention if my dizziness worsens any more we may need to think about taking away my driving privileges.....really hoping this doesn't happen because if it does that would mean house arrest......no thank you
What I miss: Being comfortable! My cute normal clothes.
Best part of the week: Passing another stress test for the babies and knowing they are still healthy as can be
New Baby Gear: Nothing new, but did install the car seats! Actually don't think we will be having any other new baby gear until they arrive....we are ready!
What I'm looking forward to this week: Prenatal massage....I had one scheduled for last weekend but when I got there it turns out if you have a high risk pregnancy (twins are considered high risk) you need a doctors note first......soooo had to reschedule. Sad :( Oh well I guess now I have something to be excited for next week
Whats left to do before twins come: Pick names, finish packing 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!!! :)
