Does the third trimester begin at 27 or 28 weeks? I’ve read both online. Either way, it’s getting closer!
We are officially in MA and it’s taking longer to adjust than I expected. I love having my family and friends so close, but I miss most things about our life in FL. Marty cat has adjusted happily and thinks he owns the place. He’s even getting more daring with my belly. Yesterday he sat on my lap (what little space there is) and today he tried to walk up my belly. I keep waiting for the babies to push him off lol.
I’m getting so uncomfortable already. I’ve been napping every day. A bonus to teaching-summers off. It hasn’t really hit yet that I don’t have a job (since we moved). It sort of freaks me out that I’ll need to look for one next year. I’ll worry about that later though.
I’m still hungry all of the time. I feel like a hobbit because I have cereal when I wake up, then an hour later I need second breakfast (usually a bagel). I snack before and after lunch, sometimes I have two lunches, and dinner never satisfies-I have to eat an hour later. Oh and I need a snack after dinner or I’ll wake up starving in the middle of the night. Still no cravings though. I do love root beer, watermelon, and Richie’s Italian Ice. I’ve gained 25 pounds so far. Well, as of two weeks ago. I haven’t weighed myself since. With twins you need to put on the weight earlier because they grow on pace with singletons and then run out of space later on. I’d rather deal with the extra weight now instead of barfing and having heartburn later at the end. I will say the extra weight slows me down so much. I definitely waddle, can’t breath normally and have difficulty getting up once sitting. Lol.
When looking at pictures of other pregnant women, I feel giant. I look about the size of some of the 38 weeks people! [new pic added under ‘bump bump’ link from the menu]. Baby A is super active. Baby B I feel poking sometimes but mostly I feel it spinning around in there. Sometimes I get this lump on my left side and it looks like lop-sided belly. It’s pretty funny. I think they like movies because they move the most when we watch movies. They’ll fit in just fine with the rest of us then. 🙂
We are remaining team green, because it’s the one surprise we feel we get to keep since the pregnancy was planned (Ivf). We do have an online baby pool if you are interested in guessing the genders. Baby Pool Link
I see my new doctor’s office July 1. I hope they match up to the awesome team I had in FL. I will say MA insurance rocks! Pre/postnatal care is covered 100% and there’s what I consider a minimal per day fee for the hospital stay. In FL I had a $300 deductible and had to pay 20% of the cost.
