Baby, Baby: 34 Week Bumpdate

The Kidlets


How Far Along?
34 weeks!  Cruising right along...

One girl, one boy.

How big are they? 
According to apps, they're each the size of a cantaloupe, pineapple, savoy cabbage, butternut squash, or a sugar pumpkin.  According to our fabulous sonographer, Chris... Baby Girl weighs 4 pounds and 15 ounces, while Baby Boy weighs 5 pounds and 1 ounce.  All together... a whole 10 pounds of baby!  These would be pretty promising birth weights, so for them to be this big and not showing any signs of wanting out is very exciting!

Changing Momma

My fluffy baby loves his little brother and sister <3

Have you started showing yet?
Is that why people keep staring at me in public? ;-) 

Weight Gain?
Didn't get weighed this week, so as far as I know, still just up the 32 pounds.  Feeling pretty good that almost 1/3 of that is baby!

Maternity Clothes?
If I have to put clothes ON, probably. ;-)

Stretch Marks?
My stretch marks have stretch marks. No, seriously, I think some of them do!

Belly Button In or Out?
Flat, especially when Baby Boy is sticking his bum behind it :-)

Momma's Feeling

On our way to the doctor's yesterday - I've had fun getting dressed this week!  The two or so times I did it ;-)

All the food.

Anything making you queasy or sick?
Nope... just the random mild nausea, but not triggered by any smell/sight/food.

Happy or Moody Most of the Time?

I have some busy little people <3

I don't wanna talk about it.

What I Miss:
Sleep.  And caffeine.  I should be able to have one or the other!!

Other Symptoms:
The Braxton-Hicks are getting for REAL... sometimes they're really painful!  Swelling in my hands and feet... most of my joints ache - I have a hard time using my hands sometimes because of it... breakthrough heartburn... pregnancy is super-glamorous!

Highlights and Coming Soon

Her cheeks are pudging up like her brother's now <3  My pretty girl!

I squealed - loudly - when this perfect shot of his little lips and nose showed up on the screen <3

His face makes it look like my amniotic fluid is full of lemon juice :-)

Best Moment of the Week:
Yesterday's appointment was fantastic!  Seeing the babies is always fun... but hearing my doctor so pleased with how they look and saying that they wouldn't stop me if I went into labor now... it left me so shell-shocked in the happiest kind of way.  Like the day we found out we were having twins :-) 
Looking Forward To:
I have a prenatal massage on Wednesday, and a "pampering" meeting of my Mother's of Multiples Club on Tuesday... so I'm looking forward to a couple days of pampering this week :-)

Doctor's Appointments:
No more fluid checks necessary, so just the two NSTs this coming week.  Both of my NSTs from this past week looked great - blood pressure is still normal (120/75 yesterday - woot!), and the kids behaved themselves pretty well... except that on Tuesday morning, Baby Girl needed to be buzzed awake several times... she takes after her momma ;-)
