26 weeks

How far along? 26 weeks!  
Baby’s size? Apparently the size of an english cucumber.  No sure how much they weigh...will find out at our 28 week appt. a week from this Friday.  Found out today at my OB appt. that my belly is now measuring 31 weeks!!!  Babies sure are growin!!

Total Weight Gain: It varies SO much, but in the mornings around 22 pounds
Stretch marks? Ugh, I think so.  Seeing some creep up around my hiss...I guess it's a given with twins.
Sleep:  It was good the beginning of the week, but the past few days have not been so great.  Tons of vivid dreams and tossing and turning.  Also waking up with sore hips...I guess they are spreading!  Hope sleep gets better soon.
Best moment this week: Having some beautiful weather and being able to get out of the house more.  I am such a warm weather kind of girl!

Miss Anything?  I can't think of anything in particular that I miss right at this moment...
Movement: Tonssssss
Food cravings: Still the same (sorry sounding like a broken record)...can't get enough eggs, avocados and smoothies!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope!
Gender: Girl and Boy :)
Labor Signs: Nope

Symptoms: Sore hips at night (trying to stretch them out during the day), some stretch marks and I think that's about it.  Other than that, still feeling very good!
Belly Button in or out? It's still making it's way out, but you can def. see it popping through my shirts...kind of weird.

Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: So happy and excited about meeting our little ones, yet getting SO nervous/anxious about it (prob. why I haven't been sleeping well).  This past week I've been very worried about how life will be going from two to four.  It is really hitting the hubs and I, and honestly...we are scared.  I know everything will work out, just a HUGE life change about to happen real soon.  Please keep us in your prayers.  :)

Looking forward to: Our first Labor and Delivery class tomorrow evening.  We have two of these classes and tomorrow is the first.  Hopefully we will both learn a lot!


  1. So this one brought tears to my eyes. I remember that scared, what is happening, really happening here and will we handle this. Answer: Yes you will and it will all be good. Life will continue with ups and downs but you will have two beautiful blessings that distract from the worries.
    Love you and you are looking beautiful!

  2. Thank you, Susie!!!! Thankfully we have WONDERFUL support from you and Steve and my Mom and Dad. Couldn't do it without you all. I know we will get through this, just a time of lots of emotions! But in the end, we are overjoyed and can not wait to meet our babies!
