I apologize for the lack of eye candy, I always like to have something to look at. I didn't ask for pictures at the last appointment because there really weren't any good shots of the boys. They are running out of room and look totally squished in there! One baby was straddling his brothers chest. They can't get perfectly round belly measurements anymore so they do their best. And they have a hard time figuring out who's leg is who's and who's arm is who's. They probably won't suffer from claustrophobia as adults.
Here's some great news, baby C caught up fast and is now one of the bigger babies! Little foot no more! Their estimated weights are about 2lbs and 5oz each. I have about 7lbs of baby plus an extra large placenta and not to mention the extra amniotic fluid. I'd say if I was having a singleton he'd be over 10lbs by now.
In about a matter of three days I went from feeling pretty good and relatively mobile to feeling like I'm going to collapse under my own weight. It's so hard to get up since my knees feel like they are going to give out. And rolling over from one side to the other takes my breath away. It's like someone is sitting on me and I can't breath. My hands feel numb throughout the night and feel sore throughout the day. The doc say's it's pregnancy carpal tunnel and not to worry about it.
My latest weight measurement is 152lbs so I've gained 45lbs thus far. It's been a while now but I'm no longer on my crazy diet. I just eat as much as I want and honestly I just can't eat as much since the babies take up so much room. Mama milk snacks is still a staple and a main contributor to my continuous weight gain. I'm also drinking lots of water to keep away contractions. It's been warm so it's easy to drink a lot, I'm especially partial to my "lemon essence" (spritzer water with lemon flavor).
The boys have also kicked it up a notch, literally. They are kicking really strongly and consistently throughout the day. The baby foot lumps come out about an inch or more so it looks like squirrels running around under a blanket. I've also given up trying to guess which baby is which. They change positions so frequently, you wouldn't think they were running out of room in there. Going to my baby shower now so I'll have some good pictures to post next time.
