34 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!

How far along? 34 weeks!!!!!!!    
Baby’s size? Will find out Tuesday at our appt.!  I can't wait!  My guess would be that they are about 4 pounds, 10 ounces each...we will see Tuesday. :)

Total Weight Gain: Not sure...will find out at my OB appt. on Thursday.  Oh lord, so scary to see the scale go up so high but will do anything for these babies!

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 have my good and bad nights and still waking up all the time to use the bathroom.  I feel like these posts are getting repetitive...
Best moment this week: Today.  Making it to 34 weeks.  Brings tears to my eyes.  

Miss Anything? Being more active!  But telling myself over and over again that I will miss these days of laziness and wish them back once life gets hectic, haha.  Really trying to enjoy the downtime and quietness now :)

Movement: Yes! 
Food cravings: None as of late.
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope!
Gender: Girl and Boy :)
Labor Signs: More noticeable Braxton Hicks contractions, but nothing crazy.

Symptoms: Swollen feet, oh so sexy canckles and horse sounding voice...that's about it.  I still don't have heart burn which I'm SHOCKED about.  I've always heard about heart burn being pregnant and I haven't had it yet.  Hopefully I'm not jinxing myself, but would thought if I'd get it I'd have it by now!

Belly Button in or out? It's pretty much out although I can't see it anymore.

Wedding rings on or off? Off
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy and emotionally happy.  Almost cried today in church but worked hard to hold back the tears.  It's just getting SO real.

Looking forward to: Our appt. w/Dr. Xmas on Tuesday.  Hopefully we will get a lot of answers to the questions we have such as any more thoughts of when he think I'll have the babies, when I'll get the cerclage out, etc.

Thank you God for getting us to this point.  This has been my goal all along and I can not believe we are here.  However, now that we are here, I would LOVE to make it to 35 or 36 weeks.  After that, I think I'll be pretty much done :)  Really savoring up these last few days with the babies in my belly and time with hubs. I go through moments about being really scared how life is going to change so much, yet I know it will be a very welcomed chapter into our lives.  The minister today at church talked about welcoming change into our lives and how we need to embrace these true...embrace them, we will.
