25 Weeks!



Finally! - I have a belly picture for you! Here is my 25 week baby bump - I look huge to be only 25 weeks. I had my regular OB appointment on Thursday and my belly measured 30 weeks, which as always, the midwife assured me was normal with twins. Last weekend, I went shopping with my mom and had to buy new maternity clothes because I have already outgrown the original ones that were purchased in January/February - Crazy! My OB appointment went well. My blood pressure is still high, so the midwife said they may up my medicine dosage in the near future, but for now they are leaving me at the same dose I've been on. Other than that, all was great. We had an ultrasound and Abel and Belle again received an A+ from the midwife on their measurements and weight. I also had the ultrasound tech confirm their genders once more before I started washing their clothes...she confirmed that they are still a boy and a girl. So, at 25 weeks, I feel confident that we won't have a gender surprise now. Their nursery furniture and bedding arrived this week and I also purchased their stroller. Aaron has as lot of work to do in putting all of it together. I will be working on washing their bedding and clothes and getting that in their dressers and closet. So much to do and I can't believe how fast time is flying!

In addition to the heartburn, I have never been so tired in my life as I have this past month. My body is really starting to feel the weight and strain of carrying two babies and I'm exhausted. I am enjoying sleeping now while I still can! :)

So glad to hear things are going well! I know you're tired now, but this part of it will be over before you know it and (believe it or not) you'll actually miss being pregnant! I thought people were NUTS when they told me that but -- just 2 weeks later -- I DO find myself missing certain aspects of it already! In my last few weeks, I was getting more & more miserable and a friend reminded me, "Life will never be as it is right now, so enjoy this time!". So true, even after they're born!

Beautiful you are! I remember the feeling-it is a long haul but you're doing great. This is the time to take care of yourself and listen very closely to your body. Rest, relax as much as possible and sleep-YES! Because you won't get much those first few months! It is so much fun though :) Ours are 10 months this week already! Best to you both!

You look great! Sleep will get harder and harder the closer you get to delivery, get every little bit! I was measuring 39 weeks at 32...it was always shocking to hear how big I was.

Enjoy every little bit! It goes SO fast!
