35 weeks

Dear A and B, Hurray, we've made it to 35 weeks--this is a big milestone for your growth and development in utero! You'll be even more developed if you can hang in there for another week at least, if not two. We're hoping for two, obviously! A, you're really wedged in, head-down, like you're trying...

34 weeks

I feel like a Barbie doll whose legs have been unsnapped and then put back on incorrectly. It all just feels...off, somehow. The chiropractor said last week that my pelvis is really loose, so I guess that's why? Also, a lot of the time it feels like I've been horsekicked in the ladybits. Ouch. This... Continue Reading →

33 weeks

Well. It finally happened. I hit a big number. Two of them, in fact. 50 pounds gained. I now weigh 200 pounds. These are both large numbers. Big, round numbers that look menacing. But then I take a breath. There are two fetuses in there, with all their accompanying fluids and support organs (plus the... Continue Reading →

30 weeks!

Or--these will be actual, outside babies sometime in the next eight weeks. EIGHT! That's a single digit number of weeks, which isn't very many. I'm not ready!! My belly button is getting closer, but still hasn't popped. Looks like I have another light linea negra below my belly button, but of course I can't see... Continue Reading →

28 weeks

An amazing thing happened two mornings ago: I squeezed the tube of toothpaste! I hadn't been able to do that for about two weeks with that stupid thumb pain. I still can't bend it very far on its own, but if I push down and bend it, it doesn't hurt. My hands are still painful,... Continue Reading →

27 weeks: ouch

When were at the new doctor's office last week, I got on the scale and it was official--180. One hundred eighty pounds. That's THIRTY pounds gained--and not even seven months along! I think the Brooklyn doctor originally suggested 35 pounds of weight gain for the entire pregnancy. Oops! The thing, though, is that other than... Continue Reading →

Belly Button

  See? There's a lighter ring of skin around my belly button!  (23 weeks today--other page has been updated)         Bonus photo from the roof tonight:        

this body: almost 23 weeks

Lots of changes are afoot in the last few months, and I figured it would be good to keep track of them for posterity. So here's a round-up of what's already happened, and I'm sure there will be more changes as we go on. I'm almost 23 weeks right now, so there is a LOT... Continue Reading →

Bigger and Bigger

I've been taking weekly photos for my belly progress--it's really interesting to see little changes week by week! For example, within the last week, looking at photos, my tummy doesn't look a lot bigger (though it is, by a full inch!), it's rounded out noticeably. Not something I saw or would have seen without the... Continue Reading →
