I can’t believe 28 weeks has already come and gone – it felt like a huge milestone for me. At this point, I’m almost 29 weeks (on Wednesday), but my next big milestone will be making it into the 30’s. Do I feel enormous? Yes. Am I uncomfortable? Yes. But knowing that every day those girls stick around is a day closer to them being born healthy is SO worth the mountain I’ll be climbing for the next 8-10 weeks. Here’s a photo from Saturday on my way to my friend’s son’s birthday party.

28 weeks twin pregancy

I’m into weekly appointments at the doctor (fun). Last check-in was on Friday and the girls weighed 2 lbs 8 oz and 2 lbs 14 oz. I’m hoping they continue to put on some weight before they make their grand entrance. I know I’m eating enough for 3… I also had to take a 3-hour glucose test after failing my 1-hour test last week (not fun). Still awaiting those results, but PRAYING I don’t have to overcome gestational diabetes these last few weeks. Apparently, it’s much more common in women carrying multiples since pregnancy hormones change the way your body metabolizes insulin. I should hear back this week – wish me luck!

We accomplished a lot over the weekend while I’m still mobile, including the nursery! I can’t wait to share photos this week – stay tuned!
