Today, I am officially 30 weeks pregnant with our twin boys. Twins are known to come earlier than singletons — which makes me wonder how much more time I have with my little family before our lives change forever. I especially think about the time I have with Dhara. She knows about her brothers, but she doesn’t really know what’s coming! I pray she embraces the change! Anyway, I’m hoping to make it to 37 weeks, at least. Dhara arrived at 40 weeks on the dot!
These past couple weeks I’ve begun to feel more preggo. I feel like a waddler. I’m having more and more back/hip pain if I stand or walk around too much — shopping excursions with Dhara are becoming more difficult. I usually like to save all my errands for one day of the week, but these days more than a couple hours on my feet means pain. I feel pretty sore turning in bed, and getting in and out of bed must look pretty hilarious. And every hour or so (maybe even more) my tummy tightens up like a basketball from a Braxton Hicks contraction — I don’t remember having them as often with Dhara. I’m feeling a whole lot of movement — these guys are definitely trying to get comfortable in there, but it must hard due to the lack of space. I do feel more movement than I feel kicks; although once in a while I’ll feel a strong kick which really takes me by surprise! Even more recently I’ve begun to feel little hiccups which fondly remind me of Dhara, she used to get them all the time.
I still can’t believe there’s two of them in there. I can’t wait to meet them, see what they look like — if they look the same or if they look different, if they look like Greg or look like me, kiss their little feet, snuggle close, give them soothing Indian oil massages, and tote them around in a comfy wrap. So exciting! Let’s hope they turn in the right direction come delivery time! Next week I hope to post some of the baby sewing projects I’ve been working on — some cute stuff, stay tuned!
