25 weeks

photo-2How are we feeling??!?!?!
I’m feeling a whole lot like we’re heading downhill and fast….. I mean, 25 weeks!!! YIKES! We’ll be 26 weeks on Wednesday which means 2 weeks from the start of the third trimester (depending on how you count) and it’s pretty much over from there, right??? Eeeeeekkkkk!!!!

What’s going on with the bump?!?!
So last week I couldn’t wait til I could see my babies moving in my belly, and this week I CAN!! It’s soooo stinking neat!!!! I love it!! I want to record it but they’re quick and by the time I even realize that it’s a kick that can be seen, they’re done! So. I’m sure the bigger they get, the easier it will be to catch them. I’ve been waaaaaiting for this for 26 weeks! lol. It’s the little things, ya know?! Other than the fun little movements, I’ll get to see how big they are this week at our MFM appointment. Six weeks ago, they were each 2 oz heavier than expected, so I’m hoping they’ve kept with hogging all my cals and are still on the heavier side!

So, how are you feeling?!
Doing good…. starting to think more and more about labor and delivery. I’d like a natural water birth but I’m not tied or completely against any type of delivery. I know that with twins (and any delivery really) you never know what’s going to happen and there’s only so much you can control. Right?

Anything else?
Ughhhhh…. I’m caving and buying Crocs and support hose. Yes. Two things I never, ever thought I’d have to purchase BUT carrying around an extra 21 lbs isn’t easy on my back or feet so what can I say? A mama’s gotta do what a mama’s gotta do. Plus, I’m terrified of getting varicose veins. Judge me not, thanks!

From mommy….
I’m just so pumped to snuggle your little necks! My goodness!!! I’ve been so un-Alaina like so the next few weeks, we’ll be hunkering down and finally setting up the nursery. I’ve sketched it out and I think it’ll be beautiful, yet live-able, and sweet! lol. See ya’ll soon – eat up!
