Finally hitting the third trimester (I am 31 weeks on Saturday!) feels like a huge accomplishment. I am out of the woods with twin to twin (TTTS) and the boys are thriving. Baby A was trying to suck on baby B’s toes through the membrane when I saw them the other day on an ultrasound! It was hilarious and so cute.
My body really hurts. It has been frustrating to want to go go go all day like I am used to but my body saying “yeah right”. I get so so tight and the boys feel so heavy. They are each almost 3 pounds! I am barely sleeping because my ribs hurt so much every time I lay down. Plus Navy is needing me a lot and always wants me to snuggle her which normally I love but right now that hurts too. She accidentally kicks me in the stomach and it doesn’t feel great! I have breakdowns at least once a day because I have to ask for help. I wish I could do everything on my own. It is very overwhelming! I can’t wait to be able to workout hard and have my strength back… although this honest post has been mostly negative… I really am so excited that the twins are coming. What an amazing thing I get to experience… I keep daydreaming about their little faces, seeing Navy as a big sister, and starting this new crazy chapter! 7 weeks to go!
I am 30 weeks and 130 pounds. Trying to eat as many veggies as possible to give my body and the boys a lot of nutrients! I also really crave the asian places that cook their food front of you… but heartburn and no room for food makes all that deliciousness come with consequences lol.
Here are some things that make my pregnancy way better..
Hope these favorites help!
Only 6.5 weeks to go until I have two beautiful baby boys… wow life is about to get crazy. Send prayers my way. I am going to need them… Ah!
