29 weeks!

Unbelievable!  I am so happy to be here at this moment with only seven weeks to go (to reach my goal!).  But, yesterday it hit me... I have SEVEN weeks to go!!!  I have to be honest, I'm freaking out, just a little! Ahhhh... I could scream! LOL!  I have so many emotions going through me, but I'm sure every new mother has.  I am scared about the delivery, about having TWO babies, about breast feeding, and about a million other little things that would probably fill this blog!  I just remind myself that its NORMAL!

Last night I had my first labor dream as well.  I was 34 weeks, we went to the wrong hospital, then I decided to leave and go to our's, we get there I'm 10 centimeters dialated, and Chris didn't pack the camera or video camera so he was just going to use his phone.  I am such a freak about taking pics and documenting details that not having the camera there was a nightmare for me!  Good thing it was just a dream!

I know I didn't do a 28 week update, I was just not in the mood last week, but here is my 29th!!!

29 week update:

29 weeks 0 days Belly

How far along: 29 weeks 1 day!

How big are the babies:  They are squashes!

Babies energy is surging, thanks to white fat depositing beneath his skin. And since he's growing so fast (weight will triple by birth), things are getting kind of cramped in the womb. What all this means for you: Get ready for some more kicks and jabs to the ribs.

Thanks to your ever-expanding uterus, it's time to welcome back the constant bathroom dashes. And try your best to forget about any emerging varicose veins -- they might be ugly, but they're harmless and should fade after delivery. Until then, avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time and make sure to get some exercise (it'll boost your circulation).

Total weight gain:  I'm up to 33 lbs!  The last three weeks I've been gaining about 2 lbs/week...  Back on track!

Maternity Clothes: I'm getting rid of this one... It's obvious now, I'm huge!

Sleep: Good!  Except I woke up this morning at 430, laid there for a while then had to eat something... back to first trimester hunger!

GENDER: Two precious little BOYS!!!! We are more than blessed :)

Movement: Lots of movement all the time.  Very few kicks though, more like stretching, rolling movements!

Food Cravings: Fruit! Strawberries, watermelon, peaches, nectarines... lots of summer fruit!  Then again, I love it every summer! 

What I miss: Being able to go for a walk without pain or having to pee.  Sometimes I will start out on a walk then have to turn around because I have to pee!  Now, I drive my dog to the park so he can run around, at least!

What I'm looking forward to: Seeing how much the babies weigh!  I go in a week!  Last month they were at 2lbs, so I hoping for 3lb baby boys!

Milestones: Officially, officially being in the 3rd trimester! 

Symptoms: I've been having lots of ligament pains again.  I think its because the babies are growing so fast and are in a growth spurt that my uterus is stretching.  I'm also getting hungrier again = babies growth spurt!

Wow- your belly looks great! Your dream made me laugh....."I'll just use my phone!" I am not sure why I find that so funny but I do.
I have so many emotions as well- I am so excited, but also will have times of anxiety and worry about all the details and what if's. I tend to drive my husband crazy during these anxious times!
Hoping your boys reach 3 pounds by the next week.
