30 Weeks Pregnant with Twins


Size of the babies: 28 weeks they were the size of an eggplant, 29 weeks they were the size of a butternut squash, and now at 30 weeks they are the size of a cabbage. I feel like it too. When one stretches out on one side, it looks weird... sticks pretty far out there!
How I'm feeling: Still feeling pretty good overall, but the pain is definitely taking over. It's like the 1st trimester again - I'm tired all of the time, but my mind is racing 100 miles a minute. My mind wants to go, go, go but my body does not agree with that. The tailbone pain is back in full effect, and I have to admit, I was loving the couple of weeks it didn't exist. I may be entering the phase now where I take a pillow with me to work. Ha! 
Pains: Um, all of them? Really, the tailbone pain is pretty bad, and the back pain is increasing by the day. I'm guessing its because there are two babies in there, and they are running out of room. That doesn't stop them from stretching all the way out though! 
What I'm eating: Smaller meals at this point. I feel hungry all of the time, but I can't eat large meals. 
What I'm craving: I'm back to craving lots of sour candy. And ice. Can't get enough of it.
Sleeping: We'll just say that my body is preparing me for the lack of sleep I'll be getting for the rest of my life. The amount of times I wake up to go to the restroom is insane, and in-between that I'm tossing and turning trying to get comfortable. Also, I've never made so many noises just trying to roll over. It's a little ridiculous. 
Wearing: Dresses mostly. Same ole, same ole. Whatever is comfortable, really. 
Wishing: For at least a few more weeks of growing these babies. We've made it to 30 weeks, but I would be most grateful if I can make it to 34 at minimum. More than that would be even better, but I'm taking it day by day at this point. 
Babies Moving: Yep, all of the time. It never gets old either. Their movements are the most incredible... it just puts things in perspective. There are TWO babies. 
Loving: That it's getting closer, and we'll have our little family soon. It's exciting and scary at the same time. I hope we can handle it, y'all. 
Doing: All things to prepare. Started a list, and gathering items for the hospital bags (OMG). Shopping and getting big items that we need to move into our house. And getting ready for the baby shower this weekend. Eek! 
Upcoming: UMM... babies arrival. So crazy, right?! Also the baby shower is on Saturday, and I can't wait!

That's it for now. It's hard to remember everything about week 28 when we're already at week 30, but it also gets really repetitive if I do these each week. Sometimes not much changes... other than the size of my belly. That's growing for sure. 

Until next time.
