19 weeks | 2nd Trimester

I finally see light at the end of the tunnel. At nineteen weeks, I feel like I can peek around the corner & see a glimpse of the the finish line. I'm told be ready to go at 32 weeks. That ain't that far away. I don't want them to come at 32 weeks, but that feels like it's just not that far away at this point. 

My mother-in-law has been so helpful these past 2 weeks! Basement is semi-cleaned - we have a GIANT, I mean, GIANT, pile of trash that needs to be hauled off to the dump at some point. The boys' room is looking like a bomb went off, BUT they have cribs (courtesy, again, of aforementioned MIL), and they have some clothes. We are saying goodbye to our office/Monica closet in exchange for these two little ones, so it's taking a while to convert all of that. Luckily, I have in-laws who don't mind some heavy lifting.

Not being able to nest is making me go a little cooky, but others are nesting for me. I cry hysterically everyday. I don't seem to have much of an appetite right now. I'm on a Parks & Rec kick. And all I want is cake. I have had one piece the entire time. Birthday is coming up - I will eat an entire cake. That is my goal. It's my 30th - I should eat an entire cake.

Thanks to all my visitors, the many chai teas you have brought over & for all the messages & love you're sending. You're making it bearable. Sorry to those who have been on the end of hysterical, weeping phone calls when I'm pretty sure the world is ending because I have to call a place that has given me terrible customer service & I need them to fix something. That happened today. Sorry, Maren.

Y'all are the bee's knees. Thanks for following my twin journey!

How far along? 19 weeks
Babies are the size of a? Mango
Total weight gain? 14 lbs. I'm sure the lecture from my Doctor will start at any minute. I need to fatten up.
Maternity clothes? Yes, with some non-maternity.
Stretch marks? Nope, BUT my old ones are looking a little stretchy lately. I'm not going to get out of this unscathed. #battlescars
Sleep? Not amazing, not terrible. Still have weirdo dreams. For example: Josh's cousin came & cuddle up in our bed at Josh's feet in my dream the other night. You know...totally normal.
Miss Anything? Driving. Kylie was out running errands the other day, and she said, "I hate running errands, but I bet you miss doing this, huh?" And weirdly, I do. It seems so innocent to run & grab the laundry soap & Maddie's toothpaste that we need. But alas, I'll just continue my Parks & Rec marathon.
Movement? I can feel them from the outside now! And oh my. They wiggle & are really pushing. My belly might explode at some point. For real.
Food cravings? Cake. Cake. And more cake. Yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Did I mention cake?!
Gender? TWO BOYS!
Belly Button In or Out? In.
Rings on or off? On.
Symptoms? Just the two boys rolling around in my belly.
Anything making you queasy or sick? nah.
Labor Signs? Nope
Happy or Moody most of the time? Middle of the road. Ask my husband. Out of my earshot.
Looking forward to? Getting the nursery moving along. Currently, it looks like a bomb went off.
