Levelling things out

I had another ultrasound yesterday and things seem to be going well. Both babies weighed in at a guesstimate of 4 lbs 1 oz! Yay to Baby A for catching up to his sister :)

Things were looking good although the tech wouldn't give me an update on my cervix claiming she couldn't give me any results. Odd since she told me everything else, so this obviously has me paranoid, but I'm staying as chilled out about it as I can.

We told her we never seemed to get any photos of Baby B's profile so she made an effort and got some great ones! (see below) but nothing on Baby A this time.

Overall my attitude is unfortunately quickly deteriorating lately. I'm feeling uncomfortable, the heartburn is getting worse, my sleeping isn't great, the babies are kicking so much (something I never thought I'd tire of) that it sets off cramping/braxton hicks which hurt, I'm so big no position seems comfortable and I HATE how little I can do. My belly is so tight it feels like it's stretched to the max. The only pants that fit now get stretched one in under one wearing and I have to hold them up when I'm out. I feel like a super big whiner/complainer but I am so ready to be done with this.

I've decided to aim for 3 more weeks (not that I honestly have any control in how much longer I'm pregnant ;) and have decided I can make it that much longer. I can't fathom longer so I'm just not thinking about it. If I make it 3 more weeks I feel confident they'll be at least 5 lbs each and that seems reasonable. So wish me luck. The finish line is in sight, but I'm slowing way down.

Pregnancy is hard :P

I was 33 weeks pregnant with my twins when I told the doctor I wanted to kill myself. I understand how completely horrific you feel. Doesn't make you feel any better, does it? Good for you to be willing to endure 3 more weeks!
