We’ve reached 30 weeks… and strangers are starting to say, “Oh dear! Any time now, right?” And I smile and say… “only 7 more weeks!”
Everyone always wants to know how I’m feeling, and being the honest person that I am, here’s the breakdown:
- Mild constipation
- Occasional heartburn
- Swelling feet, ankles, legs and hands
- Decreasing energy
- Mid back pain
All the normal stuff, right? None of which are debilitating, and overall I’m enjoying my pregnancy. I love having the girls with me at all times, and feeling their movements. I’m still working, but will be slowly tapering off. 9 hour days are just a bit much for my hefty self.
Nick has been helping out around the house, and building things in the garage (more on that later), while I’m having to rest a lot more and try to keep my enormous feet up as much as possible.
But we’re still backsplashing on weekends, doing furniture here and there, and preparing our home for two little ones!
The girls are about 16 inches long these days… it’s hard to believe they both FIT in there! Also, hard to imagine what I’ll look like 7 weeks from now (if all goes well). But I’d like to announce that no stretch marks have appeared yet!
We’ve practically finished the nursery, and will be posting some final projects in the next week. All we have left are some small details!
