30 and 31 WEEKS LOOK LIKE THIS:
How far along: The above pictures were taken at 30 weeks 3 days and 31 weeks 5 days.
Total weight gain? As of my doctor's appointment today, I am up 42 lbs.
Maternity clothes? Yes, yes, and yes. When I'm home I typically am in sweats, when I go out, all I wear are maxi skirts and for work... I have one dress left that fits. Thankfully, I only have two work meetings left to attend!
Stretch marks? Still none... and I really don't know how that's even possible at this point!
Sleep: Oh sleep... I miss you. One nostril is still completely blocked every night and turning from side to side makes me feel like I ran a marathon. And forget trying to get out of bed - that's a feat in and of itself!
Best moment this week: I watched the most recent episode of Giuliana and Bill (last week's episode) recently and was literally overcome with emotion. They were in Denver for an appointment with Dr. Schoolcraft and also attended his ball which raises money for infertility research. During that particular segment of the show, Giuliana thanked Dr. Schoolcraft for giving them her son. It just stuck with me and made me tear up. It's just simply amazing to me just how many people this brilliant man has helped become parents. From a celebrity to a little old nobody from Massachusetts. I often think of Dr. Schoolcraft and CCRM and am confident that I wouldn't be here today, at 31 weeks 6 days pregnant with twin boys, had it not been for him. He has blessed my heart and soul more than he will ever know.
Miss anything? There really isn't much that I miss. If I had to choose something it would be sleeping with un-blocked nostrils. But, I've said it before and I'll say it again - I would sleep with a blocked nostril for the rest of my life if it meant I got to be called Mommy by my two sweet boys.
Movement: Boys, boys, boys! You are movers and shakers and Mommy loves it! I love their nudges so much. I love seeing their movement. And boy do I love them!
Food cravings: Still none.
Anything make you queasy or sick? Still nothing in particular, but anything can still do the trick.
Gender: LOVE my Boys!
Labor Signs: I guess none except for some pretty intense cramping, which feels like menstrual cramps. My doctor gave me a physical exam today to check my cervix, which is still long and closed (thank goodness). She could, however, feel baby A's head - he's very low, which didn't concern my doctor so I'm working on keeping my worry at bay!
Symptoms: The same… linea nigra, some ligament pain on my left side in my hip/upper leg area, nasal congestion, restlessness, some back pain, a weird "rash" on the palm of my hands, and low, uterine cramping (which I suppose is from baby A being so low!).
Belly button in or out? In. But it's starting to really stretch. I have a feeling it might pop!
Wedding rings on or off? Officially off.
Looking forward to: Everything! And to hopefully making it another week with my boys staying put right where they are!
