How far along: 36 weeks (9 months) they’re officially full term now!
Genders: Boy & Girl!!
Weight gain: -2 pounds (32 lbs so far)
New symptoms: Lots of pelvic pressure and pelvic girdle pain this week. The babies are sitting low still and I’m sure they’re the culprits of the discomfort. Also getting lots of shooting pain in my groin whenever they move their arms around and hit a nerve.
Queasy or sick: Just reflux at night time.
Cravings: Still milk and cookies 🙂
Aversions: Nothing new
Sleep: Better, surprisingly. Even though I’m up every 1.5-2 hours to reposition I’ve been getting about 7-8 hours of sleep every night. I’m enjoying it while I can!
Maternity clothes: Comfy, loose items. Mostly leggings, a tank top, and sweatshirt.
Stretch marks: just the ones around my belly button. I’m applying either the oil or lotion twice a day.
Belly button in or out: still in but very shallow
Miss anything: being able to walk or go up/down the stairs without being so short of breath
Movement: Mostly rolls and the occasional hiccup from Baby Boy and mostly hiccups and the occasional roll from Baby Girl. I’m enjoying the movements in my belly while they’re still in there.
To celebrate the babies reaching full term I decided to do a fun little photo session in my backyard to showcase my growing bump since my maternity pictures. I got the idea from my mom and sister and am glad I did it. It was fun!
