Twins Tuesday - 36 WEEKS!!!!

I realize the blog has turned into an "all about twins" blog, and that posts have been scarce, but since I'm really not doing anything but bakin' these babes, I have nothing else to write about. And if I do, I'm too tired! HAHA!
I hope you guys had a great Labor Day and I'm thankful that it wasn't MY labor day, since my doctor was out of town. ;-)

How Far Along? 36 Weeks. 

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I really don't know, and I don't care to know! What I DO know is I'll be hitting the diet/workouts hard as soon as I can after their arrival!!

Genders: BOY AND A GIRL!!! Grayson Wells and Raegan Elise!

Maternity Clothes? Yep!! With the exception of a few things at home and some maxi dresses, I'm in maternity everything. I'm barely holding on to a lot of my maternity clothes. Shirts are getting too short!

Stretch Marks? No. Thanking the good genes for that one. Not sure how much bigger the belly can get before some finally surface, though.

Sleep: Sleep is OK. I get up to pee like clockwork every few hours and can pretty much just sleep on my left side. Both babies' feet are on my right side and every time I try to sleep on that side, they remind me that they don't like it!

Movement: Yes. Anywhere and everywhere, especially from baby girl.

Food Cravings: The sweet tooth has been in overdrive the last several weeks, although recently I haven't had the biggest appetite, period. I try to eat fruit, some yogurt, or even a little cereal when I want something sweet. I start and end almost every day with a cup of OJ.

Food Aversions: If I get a whiff of something less than appetizing in the morning, that'll get me to gagging.

Labor Signs: I have contractions on and off all day(nothing regular), pressure, and am dilated to a 4. Our doc appointment isn't until Friday this week and Joseph thinks that will be the day.
I'm wondering if I even make it to the appt.

Symptoms: Getting tired out quickly, acid reflux(especially at night), shortness of breath, frequent potty breaks, contractions, difficulty getting off the couch without help, haha!!!

Belly Button In or Out? Very much OUT!

Wedding Rings On or Off? On

Miss Anything? YES, but I'm trying really hard to cherish these last moments of pregnancy.
Some days that's easier said than done. :)

Best Moment This Week: The last long weekend (and possibly weekend, period) with just my boys!

Looking Forward To: Meeting these two sweet babies! I feel so much better knowing we're now at 36 weeks. They're a week away from being full-term and if they were to come today I'd feel much better than if they had come 2 weeks ago! Praying for healthy babies and NO NICU!!!

We will have babies in 2 weeks or less, and that's a fact. The doctor won't let me go passed 38 weeks so we'll have them on the 17th, if not before. EEEEEEKKKKK!!!!!!! I just cannot believe the time is here, even though I have literally been pregnant this ENTIRE year!! It's lasted forever but flown by at the same time. Crazy how pregnancy works like that.
We'll see how they decide to enter the world. They may wait until they have to be forced out in 2 weeks, or they may come in the middle of the night (that would really be a treat for this control freak!!).
I'm anxious to see how and when they make their debut!
Anyone wanna guess when they'll arrive?? Winner gets a night of baby duty!! :-)


  1. No stretch marks and babies 2 and 3? I dont like you anymore, LOL! JUST TEASIN and Bless your heart! REST!!

    1. Haha, well I'm afraid if this belly grows anymore that won't last!! I'm MUCH bigger than I ever was with Hudson. ;-) Resting as much as possible. Thanks, Laura! :)

  2. I'm so happy you made it to 36 weeks. I wasn't sure you would make it. Keep resting!

  3. You have done a great job baking them. The OJ might be making reflux worse. It did me.

    1. Thanks, Pat. Considering I'm carrying twins, in the heat of the summer, it's been a very pleasant pregnancy. I've thought that about the OJ, but I just can't give it up!! :)

  4. Is it too late to predict that they'll be born on the 9th? lol Glad you were ably to soak up the last few days of your pregnancy!


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I enjoy reading every single one of them!!
