29 weeks!

Getting ice cream with the girls.  Really looking huge here...yikes!  Two babies in my belly is no joke!  More pictures to come of our shower when they are sent to me :)

How far along? 29 weeks!  
Baby’s size? About the size of cabbage...

Total Weight Gain: At my OB appt. almost a week ago I was up 25 pounds.  I'm only having myself weighed at the OB's office as I don't want to get caught up in the number.  As long as I'm gaining enough, I don't want to know.  It's scary enough seeing the scale go into numbers you have NEVER seen before.  
Stretch marks? Still the same faint ones on my hips, nothing new from that so far...slathering myself in Palmer's cocoa butter!
Sleep:  Still going great...been lucky so far with this.  I do have to wake up every time I move/switch sides b/c of this large belly, but thankfully I fall right back asleep.  And of course I'm up a couple times at night to use the bathroom, but again, I can fall back asleep very easily.
Best moment this week: Having my sweet, sweet friends surprise me from SC!  I was supposed to have a baby shower in SC last weekend, but since being put on bed rest and obviously not allowed to travel, that shower had to be canceled.  The hostesses instead still sent out the invitations and included a "change of plans" note in the shower.  The change of plans were to send the gifts to my parents house and then my friends would come up this weekend and surprise me and we'd have our own shower here.  Well they did and it blew me away.  It was such a nice, relaxing girls weekend.  Catching up with these girls was sooo nice as we only see each other about once a year, if that.  The hubs and I were so blessed with the gifts we got.  A car seat, crib mattress, my (twin) breast friend, our video monitor, our Baby Einstein Stationary Jumper, FP cradle swing, my diaper bag, Skip hop activity gym, stinkin ADORABLE clothes and the list goes on and on.  So fun :)

Miss Anything?  Not at the moment, I love being pregnant :)
Movement: Ooooh yes.  These are VERY active little babies!  
Food cravings: So I think eggs has dropped off my craving list...I still like them but don't really crave them anymore.  In fact, all my typically cravings aren't so much cravings anymore.  Haven't had many strong cravings recently.  I have had no aversions this whole pregnancy, except I noticed I have not liked gum at all while pregnant.  I'm not a huge gum person anyways, but the smell of it makes me cringe.  The hubs had some gum out in the kitchen the other day and I had to put it in a drawer b/c the smell was too strong and grossing me out, haha.
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope!
Gender: Girl and Boy :)
Labor Signs: No!

Symptoms: Still not many.  I've been noticing Braxton Hicks the past couple weeks, but my Dr. says this is normal.  I had a charlie horse last night and I haven't had one since 20 weeks pregnant...I had them allll the time during early pregnancy.  I hope they are not coming back, OUCH!  Other than that, I can't name any other symptoms.  I am really noticing my bigger belly.  It really is getting big and I feel HUGE.  I better get used to it, I know.  Thank goodness summer is about here and I can just get by in big, comfy dresses.  I don't know how woman do it who are pregnant in the winter...jackets, pants and a big belly= no fun.  

Belly Button in or out? Still flush with my skin...I wonder if it will ever pop out???

Wedding rings on or off? Still on, but I think I may take them off after my shower this weekend.  We will see.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy...starting to feel more relaxed about everything.  Although this could change in an instant...thanks, hormones.

Looking forward to: My next shower this weekend!!!  Lots of family is coming in for it and I'm so excited.  Should be another fun weekend with these babies getting even more spoiled.  Also, I'm looking forward to my prenatal massage this afternoon...ahhh...this is gonna feel good!
