TTC: 2.5 years, got knocked up the 30th cycle
What: Twins, a boy (Ocean) and a girl (Ever)
How I am feeling: Uncomfortable! I feel like my skin might explode soon. But mostly I am feeling anxious! Being on bedrest now I have few distraction and I think about them all day; when will they get here, will they be okay, will they like me, etc.
Weight gain: 27 pounds
Cravings: EVERYTHING!! I am on the GD diet and am starving and all the tasty Easter candy is out. I am going to buy some and it put it in my hospital bag because the doctor assured me that once my placentas are removed I should be able to eat chocolate again. You can only eat so much meat, eggs and cheese before you just want to go on a bagel binge!
Milestones: The babies have passed all BPP's. I also had my first trip to L&D. It was surprisingly calm there. They are total wiggle worms and I can feel and now SEE them move on the outside. Last night Ocean had hiccups and we could see them!
Signs of labor: Contractions. Real ones, not braxton hicks. They hurt and I panic. Two weeks ago my cervix was still 3.7 long so they don't appear to be doing anything. I hope they check on it tomorrow. I am a numbers nazi!
I watched 16 and Pregnant again today. Can't help it. Next week's episode showed a girl with bad back labor screaming and screaming. So . .
Thank you for blessing me with twins so that I can have a c-section no questions asked.
I am going to show you a belly picture, although I haven't really wanted to. My stretch marks are the most hideous things I have ever seen. I just get more and more and they get bigger and bigger. Luckily I don't bare my navel often so it's not the end of the world, but it is still pretty gross.
This is the belly at 32 weeks . . . .
It's really scary, I know. If you are trying to get pregnant, thinking about getting pregnant, or are newly pregnant, don't be afraid. This isn't normal.
