27 weeks and 3rd Trimester....

These pictures don't do the stomach justice....LOL

How far along? 27 weeks
How big are the babies? Eggplants!
Best moment this week: Dr. appt went GREAT, appointments every 2 weeks now!
Symptoms: I believe one of the twins has found comfort in my sciatic nerve
Movement:Very frequent, lots of big rolls
Food cravings: still milk but EVERY morning I have been eating granola cereal w/blueberries
Genders: Identical Boys
Milestones: 3rd Trimester!!

Development: Babies' lungs are going through some major developments these days, which (combined with the opening of previously plugged nostrils) means they're now able to practice inhaling and exhaling. The lack of air in your womb means every "breath" is filled with amniotic fluid, but hey -- it's progress.

Headlines from the week:
March Madness Tourney
Still Healthcare :( Blah....

Today we had a Dr. appointment! Everything looked GREAT! We were able to hear 2 separate heartbeats, my stomach measured at 38, wow, wow! We are on every 2 week appointments now. We will get an ultrasound and every one. We are going to be so spoiled when there is only 1` baby. :) The Dr. said by the next appointment we would decide if I was going to be able to have a v-birth or a c-section. Honestly at this point I am just going to do what the Dr. thinks is best. I am not going to try to be a "hero" and take a chance of putting the babies (or me) in high risk. I just want 2 healthy babies to come home with me. (Is that too much to ask...Ha!) God has a plan and I can only do what I am told, he is in control. Last week I had my blood work and glucose test. Everything was just fine with the blood work showed that I am still anemic, which I already knew, but the numbers weren't to concerning. I don't want to wish my life away or this pregnancy over but I can't wait to see them in 2 weeks. It's always so fun to watch them playing around. Dr. said next time will probably be the last fun ultrasound because after this they will be getting pretty big to see and get good pics. Oh well, as long as everything stays GREAT, I don't care!
We have another shower this weekend! The theme is Dr. Seuss "Thing 1, Thing 2" The invitations were SO cute! Happy Monday!


  1. You look GREAT! (I was measuring full term by 25 weeks and measured 48 weeks when I delivered at 33 weeks!) Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy - so glad things are going so well!

  2. Aw, you look so cute! So happy to hear things are going well! Love the Thing 1, Thing 2 idea!

  3. You look great! Sounds like everything is going very well...and I LOVE the shower theme, Thing 1, Thing 2!! Too cute!

  4. Look at that belly! You are like me - belly weight and that's about it :) congrats on being in the 3rd trimester too!

    I totally know what you mean about sciatic nerve pain - my boy set up camp on my left side and it got painful at times, but nothing I couldn't handle :)

  5. Congrats on making it to the third trimester!! Ohh I miss being pregnant. My belly exploded after 27weeks and when I delivered at 32weeks I was enormous! I can't wait to see yours. Your belly looks amazing!

    I hope those boys are nice to you, Mama! No heads in the rib cage and no kicking your bladder allowed!

  6. Your back must be in lovely shape!! I loove the Dr. Suess theme, and baby showers are just the best!

  7. Y.o.u. a.r.e. s.o. c.u.t.e!!! I love it! Congrats on the twins! They're amazing, I've nannied for 2 sets!


  8. You look wonderful! Congrats on making it this far. :)


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
