7 Month Stats

TTC: 2.5 years, got knocked up the 30th cycle

What: Twins, a boy and a girl

How I am feeling: Sleepy. I found out that I am anemic and started taking iron so I hope that helps. I also need to eat healthier. I'm having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions!

Weight gain: 25 pounds

Milestones: The babies have passed two pounds and today at my first BPP (biophysical profile) we saw that they are practicing their breathing. She switched over to 3D once and it looks like they are going to be cute. I had a small freak out when they were putting loud noises on the belly to wake up the babies and A flinched but B wasn't even fazed. I was so scared she was deaf!! But really she was just tired. Whew! And the BIGGEST news, they are named!! Although I will say most people don't like their names, so we will save that for another day.

Cravings: Ice cream, but still mostly aversions to food.

Signs of labor: None yet, but I have weekly BPP's and biweekly OB visits, so hopefully there will be no surprises!

I'm not going to post a belly pic because there are some below. Every week that passes is a small relief because they are still in there and growing, and also a small panic because they are getting closer to being here! Only 3 or 4 more weeks until maternity leave (hopefully). I'm ready for that!


  1. So amazing and exciting! Hoping things continue to go well and you have two healthy babies soon (but not too soon, of course). :)

  2. Awesome news! So glad things are going well. Hope the Braxton Hick contractions ease up and that the iron helps you feel better. :)

    Can't wait to learn their names!!

  3. Yay! Glad things are going well. How nice to get maternity leave soon, you can rest up for the big day! I'm sure the names are lovely and who cares what anybody else thinks but you and your hubby!

  4. Oh, I want to know the names!! I hope the iron kicks in for you quickly! Next week, drink some OJ (or coffee - like 6 swigs) about 10 minutes before your BPP and they can probably skip the loud horns.

  5. So glad that everything is looking good!

    And bring on the names! I say...who cares what everyone else thinks? If you and DH are happy with your monkey's names then that is what is most important. :)


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
