I am adding a section to the blog called ‘Bites of Life’. This page will host a more personal view of my life outside the kitchen. There were so many times last summer that I wanted to share pictures with you guys but resisted because it didn’t “flow” with food. Well, now that we have 2 little ones on the way, I have a feeling there will be many more tidbits to share and fun stories to tell. Back in October I announced that we are expecting twins and I have been meaning to post some pictures of the growing belly. It seems like ever since Christmas, each week I double in size. Keep growing babies!!
Hope you guys enjoy the new section!!
How far along are you? 26 weeks (27 week on Monday)
Total Weight Gain: 24 pounds
How big are the babies? 2 lbs 2oz and 2 lbs 3 oz (as of Jan 12)
Maternity Clothes? Most definitely. I live in leggings and yoga pants when I can.
Sleep: Getting increasingly difficult to get comfortable.
Food Cravings: Still anything cold and/or fruity. Ice cream, fro yo, ice chips, popsicles, fruit. The colder the better.
Food Aversions: No aversions but I am changing up what I eat slightly due to heartburn. I really miss tomatoes!
Movement? Tons! At the last ultrasound we found out that both feet are up by my ribs on the right side. They are constantly kicking each other and playing. Atleast I like to think they are playing and not fighting already. So cute! They are most active after I eat.
Symptoms: Terrible heartburn
Gender: We are not finding out. :)
Belly Button In or Out? Unfortunately it’s been out for some time. I hope it goes back.
Labor Signs? None yet. I keep telling them to make themselves comfy because they have a ways to go. Hopefully not having labor signs yet means they are listening.
What I miss? Sleeping on my stomach.
What I am looking forward to? This weekend I have two friends coming down to visit! Can’t wait!!
Next appt: Tues Jan 31st. It’s the dreaded 1 hr glucose test. Fingers crossed I pass, but I’m not feeling very hopeful.
