Thoughts for Thursday and 32 Weeks!

Happy Thursday Lovies!

-I've been a horrible blogger lately. I haven't done weekend recaps because honestly we haven't done too much but work on the nursery and organize baby things. Work has been insane and this soon to be Mama is tired at the end of the day. 

-I'm dying to get my hands on the pictures from all my showers. My MIL was gracious enough to take pictures for everything but we haven't been able to meet up so I can them from her. 

-It's still really surreal that there are two babies in me. I mean really?! I don't think it will exactly sink in that this is reality until they are here. I've been wanting to do a love letter post for the boys but literally start bawling every time I try to start. Maybe I'll get that done one day.

- My doctors have said that they will be thrilled if I make it to 34 weeks and any day after is just icing on the cake. So monkeys..please stay put until at least September 7th. Mama will be grateful. But any time afterwards I'm ready to meet you. 

-I'm terrified of labor and delivery. I had pretty much had the mind set that I would have a c section. Well both boys have been head down for about a month now. Everyone keeps saying.. that's great! Well maybe so but it seriously scares the hell out of me! I know God has orchestrated this plan and I just have to trust that he will take care of us but the anxiety is starting to creep up.

how far along: 32 weeks! (6 weeks or less until the monkeys get here! Not that I'm counting or anything :))
size of the babies: According to our ultrasound on 8/19/15 Baby A is 3lbs 15oz (54% percentile for a single baby) and Baby B is 4lbs 10oz!! (93% percentile for a single baby). The doctor is so pleased with their weights. Mom over here is definitely feeling every bit of it!
total weight gain: 34lbs .. BLECK!!
gender: TWO BOYS!!!
maternity clothes: 100% minus a few maxi dresses that are regular sizes. You will see me in the same thing over and over again now. I don't want to spend any more money on maternity clothes. Plus some of my maternity stuff is getting tight in the belly.. grrrreeeaaatt.. I hope to make it through. 

stretch marks: Yep- on my hips.. boo!! 
movement: lately they like to kick each other. It's crazy to watch and feel my stomach move.
sleep: Ugh.. pregnancy insomnia is definitely here..lately it's been hard to sleep. These little rascals are ready to kick nonstop when I'm ready to lay down. I move around but it's hard to get comfortable. 
missing: Deli meat, raw sushi, medium rare steaks, and fun cocktails.
have you told friends/family: Yep! Everyone should know by now. If you see me, you know I'm preggo. 
cravings/aversions: Rice and beans from a Mexican restaurant, chocolate ice cream with almonds or blueberries, watermelon, special K cereal, and peach milkshakes from Chickfila. 
symptoms: I have to pee ALL the time! Heartburn seems to be getting a little better. The boys have dropped so I don't have the horrible heartburn as much but I traded it for lower back and pelvic pain.
cries: I seriously tear up at EVERYTHING.

labor signs: No. thank you lord!

belly button in or out: It's definitely poking out. Certain dresses or shirts you can definitely see it.

wedding rings on or off: They've been off completely. My feet and fingers are puffy. Bleck!
the hubs is: getting excited/nervous about the arrival of our little guys. He likes to feel them move all over every night before bed. He talks to them and they kick him.. it's adorable!
babies are: starting to get ready for their big debut, tipping the scales at almost 4lbs. and topping out at about 19 inches. In the past few weeks, it's all about practice, practice, practice as they hone the skills they will need to thrive outside the womb- from swallowing and breathing to kick and sucking. Little ones have been able to suck their thumbs for awhile now. As more and more fat collects under the babies skin, they are becoming less transparent and more opaque. 
looking forward to: Date night this weekend. I'm looking forward to one our last dinners out with just the two of us. Crazy to think that very soon we will be a family of 4! 
best moments: Almost done with birthing class. One more left in the series and a breast feeding class. Making everything feel oh so that much more real!
