30 Weeks

I'm doing pretty well - I slept AMAZINGLY well after leaving the hospital. There's nothing like being on continuous monitoring for 24 hours to make you appreciate uninterupted sleep.

My Size/Development
At my Tuesday appointment, they measured me and I am measuring 41cm (or 41 weeks pregnant for a singleton mama). Ahhhhhh. Just as a comparison, I gave birth to Connor at 37 weeks, so I was never even this big with my first pregnancy and I still have 8 weeks to go. I am getting so full now. In the earlier months of the pregnancy, I would eat two pieces of toast with peanut butter on them in order to get me through till about 11am, when I'd have an apple or some sort of snack. Now the two pieces of toast is too much. I start to get full after my first one. Strange!

The Babies' Size/Development
The babies can open and shut their eyes and tell the difference between light and darkness. The twins are around 3 pounds now and their hands are fully formed. Aiden is head down at my cervix. As I walk he keeps hitting my cervix, which is causing me to contract, which causes me to dilate. Isabella is higher up. She's being a good girl but Aiden is just too eager to meet me. =)

I am still pregnant! I don't want them to stay in there forever, of course, but I definitely think they need a lot more time baking.

Random Twin Fact
Between 20-30% of twin mamas are put on bed rest at least once in their pregnancy and 10-15% are hospitalized. Twins are born at 34 weeks on average  and 50% spend some time in the NICU.

**I thought about dressing up for my photo - but this is my new reality: pajamas!**
