31 Weeks Twin Pregnancy Update

I feel so behind! Really not with just my blog, but with most things going in my life right now.  It isn’t helping much that I just move slower anyway with these two babies in my belly. 😉


How far along? 31 weeks

Size of Babies: Our babies are the size of pineapples. How cute. 🙂

Total weight gain/loss: Up 15 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight.

Symptoms: Lots of indigestion and heartburn. Lots of Braxton Hicks contractions… and I think my first REAL contraction! There was just one though, and no other symptoms, so I wasn’t worried. My feet and legs have started swelling.  I’m also having trouble sitting or standing for long periods of time.

Maternity clothes? Growing out of some of my favorites. 🙁

Stretch marks? On the very front of my belly.

Best moment this week: Working on the nursery.

Miss Anything? Sleep. Guess these boys are prepping me for when they get here.

Movement: So much movement!  They keep saying this should slow down since they may be getting more and more cramped in there, but I haven’t noticed much of a difference yet.

Food cravings: Water. Fruity drinks. Milk!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Mexican food and meat. STILL!

Have you started to show yet: People now ask how much longer I have. 🙂 “Must be soon.”

Labor Signs: Just that one contraction! Otherwise nothing!  They need to keep cookin’ in there!

Belly Button in or out? Still there!

Wedding rings on or off? On, but I have noticed some swelling here and there in my hands. Might be because we have had some warmer weather also.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Just uncomfortable, which makes me kind of grumpy.

Looking forward to: Seeing these sweet little faces!


And now for a few maternity pics! My sister, Sara was kind enough to take some pictures for us while we were all away for the weekend.  Check out her Facebook page! She has done some amazing photos for us, including our engagement pictures and our Pregnancy Announcement. I can’t wait until the boys get here and she can take some pictures of them. 🙂
