33 & 34 Weeks

My computer totally crashed over Spring Break so I'm behind! Luckily, we got it fixed though so I'll try to get back on track :)

33 Weeks
This week was Spring Break! It could not have come at a better time. I was able to cross off pretty much everything on my "twins to-do list." I made all the exchanges I needed to, picked up last minute things like crib pads etc., bought some boy clothes, and washed all their clothes. We have been so blessed by girl clothes! We were given tub after tub, literally, of girl clothes ranging from newborn to 2 years. Such a blessing! Girl clothes can be pricey! This week I had the task of going through it all and trying to figure out which stuff we would realistically wear. I know they grow so fast that many outfits only get warn once. Our poor little guy though was left without much. Girl clothes are just so much more fun to buy! I did enjoy getting to shop this week for boy clothes though. They have actually gotten much better about options and it's not just all jumpers and fire trucks (which I hate!).

My dr. was on Spring Break herself so I only had a sono. this week. Everything looked good! Here are their stats:
Boy = 5 pound 10 ounces; 144 heartbeat
Girl = 4 pounds 8 ounces; 141 heartbeat
The little boy was really curled up, so she had a hard time getting his exact measurements. She said that his weight was probably closer to 5 pounds 8 ounces.
Their positions were still the same. The sonographer asked me if I feel the little girls head all up in my ribs. Of course I said yes & told her that I'm constantly trying to push her down. She then said, "Man the dr. is going to have to go in and dig her out." Dig her out? Yikes! Not exactly what I wanted to hear. : ) 

Towards the end of the week I got to have a little bit of R&R. My mom and I got a pedicure! Gosh, I thought I loved pedicures before I was pregnant. Now, they are even more amazing. My feet just kill me because of work! We also got to visit with some of our good friends and see their new house in Rockwall. We figured our days are numbered where we will be able to leave the house for a while, so we are trying to get out a do things that we have been wanting to. We just love the Granberry's and also have a great time just laughing together.  

34 weeks
This week I organized the nursery! Josh had to make some final touches to the nursery paint over Spring Break, so I was finally able to get in there and make it actually resemble a nursery. :) I put all the clothes away, got organized, and sampled some curtains. The bedding and chair come in the first week of April! The walls are empty but I figured the decor part would kind of be a work in progress. I know what I want on the wall with the cribs so I'll probably do that next week. Josh is in charge of the other wall and is going to do a couple paintings. I don't think he's been inspired yet though. :) I'll do a nursery post once the bedding comes in so you can get the full idea.

Dr. apt. went good this week. Josh came with me so he got to see their precious faces and hear their heartbeats. It really is amazing to see and brings tears to my eyes every single week I see them. Here are their stats. They are finally starting to slow down a little.
Boy = 5 pounds 13 ounces; 139 heartbeat
Girl = 4 pounds 13 ounces; 161 heartbeat (she was super busy!)
The sono. was really neat because the little girls head is so close to my skin that it was like a 3d sono. You could see every detail of her face. She was staring right at us. One of her cheeks was really smushed and had something right next to it. So I asked what that was & she zoomed out and said that it was the little boys knee! So funny! They are all packaged in their tight. No wonder they say twins like to sleep together.

Every week the dr. measures my belly just to make sure that my uterus is growing correctly. For a single pregnancy your belly is the same number as the weeks you are. For twins, it's about 3-4 weeks ahead. Not really sure why this is necessary with twins, hello have you seen the basketball under my shirt?!?! she measured it and I asked what it was & she just smiled and said it's pretty big. I then said, no for real what is it? She said 39 weeks, but that's normal! 39 weeks?!?! Holy cow! 

We also got to set the date that she won't let me go past...April 11!! So, if I don't have them before then, that will be their birthday! We were pretty excited to be able to set a date and have an end goal in mind. I would be 37 weeks and 5 days! Can't believe that's in 3 weeks! Not exactly sure how my poor belly will make it 3 more weeks, but the dr. keeps saying it will. :)

I think that's all for now. Hopefully this week we'll get our maternity picts. in so I'll have something fun to post next week!
