( I look surprisingly chipper for someone who is wildly uncomfortable.)
How far along: 31 weeks.
Gender: Still boys.
Weight gain: 20-25 pounds I think. Still not doing bad which still surprises me since I frequently eat my weight in ice cream.
Maternity clothes: Uhhhhh nothing is fitting. Which is terrifying because I still have 5 more weeks at least! The belly is too big.
Stretch marks: Those have exploded in the last week. They weren't that bad before but they are pretty intense now. Still mostly just right around my belly button, but they are not good.
Belly button in or out: Annnnd it's out. Seeing as my belly is measuring at 40 weeks the timer is out.
Sleep: Gone. No more. Never again. I slept for 12 hours on Friday night and it was the most magical night of my life. I don't expect it to happen again.
Best moment this week: I seriously always have something to go here but then I can't remember what they are! Finding out the babies are measuring a little ahead was great though.
Miss anything: Not. Itching. Oh my God the itching, it is so awful. Had to take a blood test today to make sure it's not something bad, hopefully it's not.
Movement: They have been moving and stretching like crazy! And now it's getting kind of uncomfortable because they keep stretching my skin. My belly is really taking a beating.
Cravings: Nothing really specific this week.
Queasy or sick: Nope, which is good cause at this stage that would mean something was wrong.Looking forward to: My baby showers coming up. Everyone keeps telling me they are going to be so cool, I'm pretty excited.
Oh man is it hitting. I feel like I am at 40 weeks, like I should be done and yet I still have 5 or 6 weeks left. The next month is going to be kind of rough, but I'll just keep keeping on. The babies are doing wonderful. They are huge and healthy. When they kick and move now my whole belly moves and it's pretty intense. Most of the time is just feels weird but now it is sometimes uncomfortable so I am getting prepared for that. I'm trying my best to best stay positive, but it's getting harder because it is getting downright painful. But we're going just going to keep going because they need to be bigger, and more pain for me now means less problems for them later so that's just what I'm going to do. Fingers crossed my body agrees with that mentality!
