27 weeks...last week of my 2nd trimester!

Eeeeks!  About to be in the 3rd trimester!  Craziness!  I am starting to get a little emotional, but happy emotional about meeting these precious babies.  I can not believe that in two months (give or take) we will have doubled our family size.  We absolutely can not wait to meet (but we will wait!) baby girl A and baby boy B.  It brings tears to my eyes thinking about what a miracle they are.  After all of the struggles we have been through to get pregnant, then a miscarriage, then many more issues...these babies are sure going to be spoiled.  Life is about to change, but I'm finally feeling ready, less stressed and super excited.  I still have my worries for I going to be a good Mother?  Am I going to be able to take care of these babies on very little sleep?  How is my relationship going to change with the hubs?  Am I going to be a good wife, mother, daughter, friend, etc.?  Am I going to be able to breastfeed both of these babies well?  How in the heck are we going to take care of two newborns?  What will the pugs think?  So many questions on my mind, but all I can do is pray about them and know that we will survive and soon it will become a norm and part of our "new" life.  :)

How far along? 27 weeks!  
Baby’s size? Should be around 2 pounds each now.  Can't wait to hear how much they weigh at our appt. on Friday.

Total Weight Gain: Haven't weighed myself in a while...
Stretch marks? Still the same faint ones on my hips, nothing new from that so far...slathering myself in Palmer's cocoa butter!
Sleep:  Finally back to normal, been sleeping great :)
Best moment this week: The hubs has now felt the babies move a number of times.  Love love love it!

Miss Anything?  Spring is my favorite time of year and I've always loved taking looong walks in the perfect weather.  I am itching to go walking!!!!!  I keep reminding myself that I will be that Mother that walks her babies like crazy and the Fall will be a perfect time of year to do that.  Good thing we are investing in a good stroller :)
Movement: Tons!
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: Not many this week...the sore hips haven't come back, so that's good.  Still crazy, vivid dreams!  Feeling amazing.  I keep wondering when I'll feel pregnant...I'm sure it's coming in the 3rd trimester...

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.  Picture below!  haha

Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy :)

Looking forward to: A pedicure on Thursday (!!!!!) and our appt. with Dr. Xmas on Friday at 3:00 pm. Can not wait to see the little munchkins :)  Will be sure to put some updated pics of them on here.

*I'm off to do a little baby shopping as my outing of the day!  Have a great Sunday!
