Week 32 #operationhornettes

How far along:  32 weeks.  My c section or inducement (depending on the position of the bottom baby) is scheduled for February 36.5 weeks, which means less than a month away till we meet our boys!!!  So crazy to think about!!!!  But so much left to do!  Crunch time.

Size of the twinkies:  Honey dew melon.  I'll get a more accurate weight measurement at my ultrasound this Friday.

Total weight gain:  back down to 31 pounds.  Once I was put on the blood pressure meds and wearing compression socks, most of the fluid that was built up in my ankles, face and hands is gone, hence the weight loss.

Sleep:  Still averaging 4-6 times but not going back to sleep...sometimes up for 2-3 hours...but Alison gave me a good book to read during those twilight hours.

Gender:  Twin boys!

Names: Richard James...aka RJ and John Keefe...aka Johnny.

Best moment of the week:  Going home from the hospital!!!  And knowing that the boys and myself are OK.  Even though all the nurses were so nice, it is always the best feeling to be in your own home.

Movement:  Oh yea.  And while I was at the non stress test, the nurse pointed out that one of the boys was having hiccups.  I had never seen that before and it was so funny!

Anything make you sick or queasy:  Pork (except for bacon of course!) and soy sauce.

Mood:  Happy to be home and excited to meet the boys in less than a month!

Looking forward to:  The ultrasound on Friday!  And my birthday on Saturday.

Week 31 #operationhornettes

How far along:  31 weeks!  Getting there!  And I ended up at the hospital at the end of this week due to pregnancy induced hypertension and I was having contractions when admitted into the hospital.  I was put on blood pressure meds and modified bed rest (I can walk around to make meals and take a shower and go up and down stairs).  I am still able to work from home as long as I am lying down.  And I got two shots to mature the boys lungs should I deliver before 34 weeks...minor blip in the road!

Size of twinkies:  squash...again!  At the ultrasounds the boys weighed 3 pounds 12 ounces and 3 pounds 13 ounces...76th and 77th percentile!  They're growing like weeds!

Total weight gain:  36 pounds.

Sleep:  Not terrible this week.  Still up 4-6 times a week but getting right back to sleep.

Gender:  Two boyzzz.

Names:  My RJ and Johnny.

Best moment of the week:  Getting to see them on the ultrasound screen and knowing that they are growing so fast!

Movement:  Let's just say every nurse that had to do the non stress test or monitor their heart beats every four hours said how active they are. They're already troublemakers!! haha

Anything making you sick or queasy:  PORK!  And SOY SAUCE!

Mood:  Grateful that the boys are ok and so am I.

Looking forward to:  Being in my own home!
