boring update - 33 weeks

I have once again been so bad about blogging.

I have so much to be thankful for and wanted to document an update.

I am 33 weeks and 4 days and feel great!

I think I overdid it last night, and my back started hurting really bad. And every night I have some discomfort and can't get comfortable sleeping or sitting. But, all in all, it's not that bad!

I weight myself this morning, and I have officially crossed the 40-pound mark. I have gained 40 pounds. I am measuring from the heaviest I have been since retrieval. Even though i lost some weight in the beginning. Gosh I hope I can lose this weight fairly quickly. Not because I'm vain, just because I don't know what I'm going to wear.

I'm posting a photo of my baby shower cake. It was awesome. If there is any interest, I might post a belly picture one of these days. (I know I cant be trusted with my sporadic posts)

I do not feel ready AT ALL to have these babies. We have not registered for cord blood banking yet, don' t have several things like changing table pad, baby monitor, car seat protectors, mobile, humidifier, noise maker, diaper bag, or rocker/glider. And we still have two more hypnobirthing classes! My mantra is now 38 weeks and 7 pounds each. I talk to the babies and ask them nicely to stay in until the end of April, but I know they will come whenever they are ready!

Oh yeah, and we don't have any bottles. Which I don't plan to use, since I plan to exclusively breastfeed, but I'm thinking I should have some just in case. Should I?

I have an awesome gift card from Target that my coworkers gave me at my work shower to buy above items, just need to get off my butt and go there and get them. I'm still working, so after a long day, I just want to lay down and watch American Idol.

This is a boring update, I know. I'll post again soon!

It's really not boring, it's good to know that you're doing well. It's weird to think that your babies will be here soon! I'm sure you'll have everything together before they come, and if not... it'll be all the more exciting to try to get it done with the kids in tow!
I know I'm anxious for our little one to come, but my last five weeks are probably going to just fly by and at the end I'll wish I had taken more advantage of my time when I had no kids. But even thinking about cleaning out the fridge now just drives me nuts!

From one twin mom to soon to be another--go get the stuff now! Things can change in an instant and while I hope that isn't the case, it's nice to just be ready. It won't be exciting to do it all with kids in tow, it will be beyond stressful.
If you are planning on exclusively breast feeding (I am), are you going to pump?
If so, you'll need bottles. Try a Dr. Browns starter kit. We have 3 different kinds and this are the best for gas/reflux.
Having a bottle so someone else can feed gives you a break and you will really appreciate that.
Get a dbl breastfeeding pillow-- best thing ever for tandem feeding!
Good luck and I hope you make it to 38 weeks!

As a mommy of two hungry twins who planned to EBF, get bottles. I recommend Dr Brown's. I couldnt BF in the NICU, so that meant pumping and bottle feeding until they could suck. Then BFing and bottling to make sure they got all they needed. And then a nasty ass case of mastitis dried up my supply when they were 3 months old... So, bottles it was.

And, we werent able to do the cord banking because of PTL, so I'd make sure to get that squared away now.

And 33 weeks! AWESOME!
