34 Weeks!

how far along: 34 weeks! (4 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: 50lbs .. I about had a heart attack today at the doctors office. She thinks it's fluid since I gained 9lbs in a week. She doesn't seem concerned. 
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!! I'm also starting to see some on my stomach. Insert cringe face but it is what it is.. 
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. My hips are sore and getting up every 2 hours to pee doesn't help. My belly is now so big that the weight definitely pulls at my hips. My snuggle pillow is almost too big though. I've been flipping the pillow over and using a couch pillow under my belly. Bed time is an ordeal these days.
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, peach milkshakes from Chickfila, and sweets. I also started wanting chicken biscuits in the morning. I can not be trusted with sweets as of lately... please hide them from me!
symptoms: I have to pee ALL the time! Heartburn has made another appearance. I can feel the boys kicking my ribs so I feel like they are still head down but just getting longer in length. 
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: clocking in at five pounds and could be as tall as 20 inches by now, and the vernix is getting thicker. Their testicles are starting to make their way down from their abdomens to their final destination. Their tiny fingernails have probably reached the tips of their fingers by now and getting ready for their first manicures. 
looking forward to: meeting our boys.. I know I'm going to trade this tired into a whole different level of tired. I know I will trade this uncomfortable body in for a completely different uncomfortable but I'm kinda over being pregnant at this point. I'm only truly comfortable when I'm asleep and that's not all the frequent.  

best moments: Making some freezer meals this weekend and being lazy around the house. I didn't want to go back to work. It was nice being home for 3 whole days. 


  1. Being pregnant (though SUCH a blessing) is such hard work-- with 1-- I cannot imagine with two… Keep chugging along!!! And now I want Chick Fil- A too :-)

  2. You look great! Hope you're feeling good and those boys stay put for a few more weeks!
