28 & 29 Week Twin Pregnancy Update

29 weeks pregnant twins


How far along? 29 weeks

Size of Babies: Butternut Squash!

Total weight gain/loss: Haven’t weighed in a couple of weeks. I do see my OB this Tuesday, so I will find out then for sure. 🙂  At my 28 week OB appointment I was measuring 34 weeks… so these boys are definitely growing!

Symptoms: Braxton Hicks are back with a vengeance! Some nausea. Indigestion! Heartburn! Trouble sleeping through the night. Some rib pain since Baby B is still headbutting my ribs.

Maternity clothes? Growing out of some smaller sizes.

Stretch marks? Dun, dun duuunnnnn… We have a sighting! I was actually excited though! I knew I would get some eventually, and I’m proud because it just means that these boys are growing. I already had some from when I was younger, so some stretch marks from carrying TWO human beings in my body is fine by me.

Best moment this week: Feeling hiccups!  My mom tells me I had the hiccups constantly when she was pregnant with me.

Miss Anything? Feeling comfortable. Anywhere. It’s hard to stay sitting down. I’m mostly comfortable standing… for about 10 minutes.  Lying down in bed isn’t super comfortable after awhile either.  *whine whine whine*

Movement: Constantly.  I love it.

Food cravings: Juice, still.  Water.  Nutter Butters.  Milk.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Meat! I have been forcing some down though. Still wouldn’t touch a steak right now.

Have you started to show yet: No doubt.

Labor Signs: Nada.

Belly Button in or out? Still there!

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Much more emotional.  Moody when I am uncomfortable or not feeling well.

Looking forward to: Seeing these two little faces!


And last, but most importantly, I hope you will say a prayer (or twenty) for my nephew, Owen.  He has Tuberous Sclerosis Complex and is having the first of his brain surgeries tomorrow.  He is the sweetest little boy, and we are all just praying for the best possible outcome from these upcoming surgeries.

If those blue eyes don’t get ya, I don’t know what will!
