33 week twin bump

How Far Along?: 33 Weeks

Genders?: BOYS

How Big Are Babies?: The size of a Durian. They're roughly 4.25 pounds and 17.2 inches long. Babies now keep their eyes open when they're awake and are starting to coordinate their breathing with sucking and swallowing. Their brains are also developing like crazy!

Weight Gain?: This morning I weighed myself and I was 163.4 pounds which means I've gained about 43.4 pounds. Thank goodness I'm mostly all babies! My OB suggested that I gain around 57 pounds tops so looks like I am doing okay.

Workouts?: Just walking, and slowly at that! Nothing has changed much in that department. If I walk too much I get painful contractions.

Symptoms?: Lately I've been having period like cramps. At first they started only after going to the bathroom, but now they have progressed to just having them all the time on and off. I also feel like someone has kicked me in between the legs as hard as they could for some reason. Other than that I've just been hungry all the time and sleepy.

Wedding Ring On or Off?: Got my wedding ring on, but not my engagement ring! Looks like my fingers are starting to go back down to normal.....slowly.

Stretch Marks?: Under my boobs, and the few on my butt. I also started to notice what I think are tiny little ones around my belly button, but nowhere else on my belly.

Belly Button?: Out! And super sensitive when touched.

Movements?: They move, but it seems to be a little less than what I'm used to. I think they're running out of room to really wiggle in there. I do notice that I always feel lopsided and pressure (mostly from Bentley).

Sleep?: Not the best but when I do finally fall asleep I am OUT like a light. I wake up about every 2 hours now to pee.

What I Miss?: Being conformable and being able to sleep on my back! I also miss fitting into clothes that aren't tight on me. Even some of my maternity clothes are too tight on me...

Food Cravings?: For some reason cheese has been my go to lately. That and the fruit bowls I make. Mmmmmmm! I'll be posting the recipe for them soon!

Food Aversions?: None.

Labor Signs?: Just the usual contractions, and TMI seems like I am slowly losing my mucus plug. I'm not sure if the period like cramps I'm feeling are part of it or not. It could just be my body preparing for the real thing!

What I Look Forward to This Week?: I'm really looking forward to finally getting our appointment with the specialist this week. I just want answers, and I'm excited to have my regular OB appointment. Any chance to see the boys is awesome. My sweet friend Jenn volunteered to take pictures of my husband and I since our maternity photoshoot got canceled. I can't wait!

Notes: We finally have an appointment set to see the specialist and I'm hoping we get some quick answers! Prayers y'all!
