Seriously! I cant believe how huge my stomach can/will/is stretching! it's pretty amazing! Well I had my 30 week check-up appt this week, and was surprised to learn that I am already dilated to a 1 and a half and 50% effaced! this concerned my OB so he sent me to the hospital for monitoring and to get the steroid shots for the babies lungs.. just to be safe. I haven't been feeling any contractions and the babies are looking great, so he put me on "modified" bed rest, I basically just need to take it a little more easy... Like no more bike rides, jumping on the trampoline, vacuuming, mopping.. ya know, all the fun stuff! I really want to do all I can to keep these babies baking in here! My OB was saying, "lets try to make it to at least 34 weeks" I'm thinking not 34! more like 36! we will see, I guess?
How far along: 31 weeks
Total Weight Gain: 29 lbs And more to come!
Symptoms: pressure! no contractions... but alot of pressure! and very sore back!
Stretch Marks: Still none!
Sleep: I wish! when I lay down I cant breath and have bad acid reflux, when I prop the pillows up my back really hurts! when I lay on either side my ribs feel like they are going to collapse! I know, I know...whaa whaa!
Best Moment Last Week: finding out that the babies aren't breech anymore! baby A is head down and baby b is transverse, but more head down than feet! hope they stay that way!
Movement: OH MY GOODNESS! these kids are already out of control!
Cravings: Apples. Apples and Apples. and a little steak still every now and then...
What I Miss: Diet Dr. Pepper ( I have done pretty good with no caffeine this pregnancy.)
What am I looking forward to: making it to the next 34 week milestone! 3 more weeks!
Milestones: 31 weeks!... every week counts now!
How is Daddy? Terrified. seriously.
Here is a picture from a baby shower that my mother and sister in-laws gave me! it was so much fun! I got so many cute things!
