33 weeks | 3rd Trimester

We're headed home tomorrow! The boys are growing and looking good, and all of the contraction medications and the bed rest have helped me get 6 weeks more out of this pregnancy. I am so grateful to the doctors and nurses who took such great care of the 3 of us. Baby A is measuring 3lb 11oz and Baby B is measuring 4lb 4 oz. All good numbers, but I am still trying to pack in the protein to beef this littles up before they try and make their debut.

Once I'm home, I'll have 5 days of STRICT bed rest, and then I am home free. I already have my vanity appointments set for next week, so I can get out of the house and feel like a human being again. 

Thanks once again for the prayers, visits, love notes and encouragement! It's been the least fun season, but it's kept the twins cooking for a good chunk of time.

How far along? 33 weeks
Babies are the size of a? Durian Fruit
Total weight gain? 30 pounds
Maternity clothes? Yoga pants & maternity tanks!
Stretch marks? Still none.
Sleep? The nurses are shocked at how well I sleep considering my girth and the fact that I am in the hospital, but cooking 2 babies really takes it out of you.
Miss Anything? Normal life
Movement? Always.
Food cravings? It's no longer banana nut bread thanks to a saint at church!
Belly Button In or Out? Out.
Rings on or off? It still fits, but it's not comfortable.
Symptoms? My pelvis feels like it's been beaten with a baseball bat.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nah.
Labor Signs? Still having contractions, but considering this gut is measuring full term, that's not terribly surprising.
Happy or Moody most of the time? Pretty happy!
Looking forward to? Going home!
