Moving from the city to the suburbs

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!

This weekend was dedicated to moving into our new house. Boxes, packing tape and newspaper – oh my! We accomplished so much in just three days. I’m honestly amazed at how much we were able to get done. Thankfully, we had the help of an army again. The guys over at College Hunks Hauling Junk were quick and we had some additional help from my dad since I’m not exactly useful in this situation. Let’s just say 20 weeks pregnant = not exactly the best of help with loading and unpacking boxes.

And, we’re almost finished with painting! Just two rooms left: the dining room and main floor bathroom. We painted the nursery and put the cribs together on Saturday. In the bottom-right corner photo above, there’s a sneak peek at the color: Benjamin Moore’s Palladian Blue. I think this is my favorite color in the whole house. Of course, I might be biased. (Hint: take a look at my blog background choice.)

The girls were up and kicking this weekend. Another doctors appointment today showed they’re still right on track with their growth – neck and neck in fact, which is a very good sign they’re both getting everything they need. Meanwhile, I’m definitely going through a growth spurt if you will. I had a sudden moment of panic on Sunday night wondering how it’s possible that I’m going to get bigger than I am right now! Somehow nature finds a way I guess… I also joined my local MoMs (moms of multiples) club.

Latest cravings: donuts & anything sweet. I may or may not have bought a dozen donuts (to share supposedly…) last week. And they may have been gone by Sunday. Don’t judge!
