Jack Henry with his sweet little arms behind his head... relaxing :)
The quality isn't so great plus I took a picture of the picture with my phone!
With a total of over 5lbs of baby plus placentas and fluid, I feel like I am full term with a singleton. My uterus measures at 35 weeks and I feel it! With that being said, my doctor has decided it best for me to be on modified bed rest the remainder of my pregnancy. This isn't full pelvic rest but it means not being on my feet longer than 30 mins at a time, and it also means no more working. As an RN, I have a physically demanding job that was beginning to take a tole on me. My doctor said everything looks great with the babies and he wants to keep it that way with me taking it easy. So the rest of my pregnancy I will be taking it easy and allow my babies to cook as LONG as possible. We want big, healthy babies with no NICU time and I agree with my doctor that I was really pushing my body at work.
Hadley is breech right now (She is baby A, so she will come out first and we need to her to be head down for a vaginal birth... however there is TONS of time for her to be head down) and Jack Henry is head down like a good boy. We are getting so excited to meet them in just a couple of months!
Maternity Clothes? Well, I am having a hard time finding maternity cloths that fit now! If they are big enough for the belly, they are too big everywhere else, and if it fits me everywhere else, it is too small for the belly... A problem that will probably grow worse. I find myself wearing Luke's T-shirts around the home when I don't need to be fashionable.
Stretch Marks? Still none! WHoo hoo!
Sleep? Still decent. I just wake up with a very stiff and sore back.
Movement? Moving TONS and starting to kick HARD.
Cravings? Skyline and lemonade.
Gender? Boy and girl
Belly Button In or Out? Out!
Symptoms: Belly is BIG and tight, heartburn and some leg cramps, back aches, and a few braxton hicks contractions.
Best moment of the week? Seeing out precious babies via ultrasound and a good checkup report!
What I am looking forward to: Getting the nursery finished.
