Ready for my Bumpdate?
How far along: Twenty-four weeks! Hello six months of pregnancy. Sometimes I cannot believe how quickly I feel this pregnancy is going.
Size of babies: Pineapples. The boys are as long as and as heavy as pineapples!!
Let’s talk bump: It’s hard to believe there are 3 pounds of baby inside this bump. The boys have changed positions on me and both of their heads are on my right side. This has been a great relief to my back but my bump is often lopsided. I can’t help but laugh at the extra bulge on the right. You can kind of see in my bump picture that my belly isn’t perfectly round.
Best moment of the week: This was another week filled with wonderful moments of greatness. Over the weekend I was showered with love by my family and friends. My sister hosted a beautiful shower to celebrate our sweet baby boys. Everyone was so thoughtful and generous. I remember thinking how lucky the boys are to be surrounded by so many people who love them before they are even here. I promise to share pictures from the shower this upcoming week!
This week we had another anatomy scan ultrasound. Both boys look great! Their measurements are right on track and they are both growing at the same rate. Two huge victories for this twin mom to be! I love seeing their round bellies and chubby faces. Baby B was the show-off this time, as Baby A was attempting to take a little snooze.
Some of the amazing women I have met through blogging are hosting a virtual baby shower for me! How thoughtful is that? They are giving away FOUR amazing prizes. Make sure you stop by to enter! Many thanks to Ophelia, Mrs. AOK, Heather, Carissa, and Penny.
Worst moment of the week: Nothing to report here! Woo hoo!
Something I craved: Sprite. Strange I know. I don’t drink soda, I haven’t in years. But all I wanted this week was some bubbly lemon-lime soda. I never did get one. We don’t have soda in the house and I was far too lazy to drive to the store after getting home for the day. And I never seemed to remember when out and about. Thank you pregnancy brain!
Most vivid dream of the week: I was hoping once we started to get some baby necessities in the house (ie carseats and cribs) my parenting fail dreams would dwindle. But nope, they haven’t. My dreams are still filled with trips in the car without carseats. Sleeping without cribs. And no diapers and wipes in sight.
What I am looking forward to: Two weeks off! I have a list a mile long of things I would like to accomplish. Fingers crossed I don’t lose steam and I am able to accomplish most of it. I am also ready for some relaxing with the pups and some fun spring break dates with friends.
Matt is: back home. He was away this week for work. I took advantage of sleeping in the middle of the bed while he was gone. I am fairly certain it was the best night sleep the puggles and I have gotten in weeks (Sorry Matt). It’s not his fault. I blame my pregnancy pillow, as it takes up 60% of the bed. All five of us (puggles included) were happy to have Matt home, even if it meant a squished bed. He should only have one or two more business trips before the boys arrive. Crazy huh?
The puggles are: very curious about the many new baby things in our house. They of course sniff tested everything and thought several things were for them. One of Matt’s aunts got the boys stuffed animal puggles! Can you believe that?? I think Greta thought they were her babies when she first saw them. And potentially still does. I have the stuffed puggles sitting in the boys bouncy seats in their room and I often find Greta laying between them. She’ll be a good second mama to the boys.
Happy Friday my friends. I hope you had a great week and have a relaxing weekend ahead of you. I would love to hear what you think of the ever-growing, slightly lopsided bump this week!!
