Overall I have really had a fabulous week. Doctor put me down to 1/2 days at work. At work I’ve been trying to complete my paperwork and tie up loose ends. I’ve been able to come home and relax for a little while until Ava comes home from daycare. I even had energy yesterday! (Although the coffee place might have given me caffeinated coffee because I had almost too much energy). Taking it easy has helped my aches and pains and veins. I don’t feel as bad in the afternoon. I write all this and tonight I’m feeling like crap. I think one of them is stomping on mycervix or pushing on the vaginal wall. I’m laying down and still feeling very heavy and stabbing pains. Thinking about taking a bath.
Ava’s pregnancy at 31 weeks
Gender: boy/boy twins
Weight gain: 36 lbs -slowed down some
Symptoms: contractions if I push it too much but they are not leading to any dilation or intensifying in any way.
Food: I go through spurts of wanting to eat a lot. But trying to manage those times.
Babies growth: we had an ultrasound yesterday. They are getting so big it’s hard to see much on the ultrasound machine. Baby A is average at 3lbs 9 oz. and baby B is above average at 4lbs 5oz. My belly is getting so big I can’t imagine it growing more over the next 7.5 weeks.
Looking forward to: maybe taking off as of next week or the week after, I’m not entirely sure. We’ll see how it all goes.
Best moment: ultrasound! Loving these frequent checkins. Non stress tests will start the first week in July and continue twice a week until delivery on July 31
Sleep: not happening much lately. I get a good 3-4 hour stretch for the first part of the night then I’m up every 1-2 hours adjusting because my hips hurt or peeing. I don’t sleep in much either.
