We’ve officially started the 3rd trimester! And I’ve noticed a marked difference in my energy level. Though perhaps it’s directly related to the low-quality sleep I’ve been getting. It’s incredible how much time and strategy it takes to roll over! But I love how my girls gently remind me of their presence pretty much all the time. It hasn’t gotten to the point where their kicks hurt yet, so I’m still enjoying their gentle karate. Baby B is very active, while Baby A mostly just likes to do somersaults. It’s so cool how you can tell a difference in personalities while they’re still in the womb! Here’s my belly pic for today:
We had a Dr’s visit last week that had us a little worried about Baby B kidneys, but after finding ourselves in the waiting room of a high-risk pregnancy Dr, we were assured that the abnormalities on her tiny organs weren’t harmful and had a legitimate explanation. PHEW! We were truly freaking out. Here’s our girl B, happy and healthy.
Our duo are weighing in about a week ahead of schedule… almost 3 lbs! And we’re told they’re long little buggers… and I said, ‘well take a look at the giant they have for a daddy!” For those of you that wonder about my cervix, it’s holding strong without any funneling. And our doc expects me to make it well into July! Based on my current state of being, it’s hard to imagine how I’ll feel/look 2 MONTHS FROM NOW. Yowza.
Here’s a Babycenter shot of twins in-utero at 28 weeks. I like having a visual.
For those of you still struggling with infertility, know that I haven’t forgotten you and appreciate you sticking around to hear about our lives. Don’t give up hope, and do whatever you have to do to get your miracle.
