31 Weeks

31 weeks and counting! I’d love to stay completely positive when blogging on my pregnancy, but let’s face it, not everything about being pregnant is awesome. Don’t get me wrong, I have been incredibly fortunate for this entire pregnancy. I have had very few complaints and no major issues. Up until a few weeks ago there really wasn’t anything to complain about at all. I was LOVING being pregnant. Oh how a few added days can make a difference in my attitude. While I still don’t have a lot to complain about, this pregnancy is quickly growing increasingly difficult. I am having a hard time breathing. I am sleeping very little these days. I see just about every hour on the clock. My bladder is the size of a pea. I am so swollen it hurts on a regular basis and I have cankles that look like the Michelin man. However, my doctor told me last week that I am already measuring in at 39 weeks (single pregnancy) which is why I am feeling the “pregnancy pains”. I feel rather lucky to have made it this far with so little to complain about. Not to mention these are all things that will go away in a few short weeks when I’m holding two healthy babies.

I have included a few pictures of what pregnant with TWINS at 30 weeks looks like. I will try and get some non-self portrait photos however; Kevin is STILL working in Richmond so for now it’s up to me to get the pictures. I am just praying everything works out with his job and he returns home soon  It is really beginning to wear on him physically and emotionally and me emotionally.


I can't believe this belly could still continue to grow for weeks...oh it's going to be a scary sight!

Last but not least- we began a kitchen renovation this past weekend. I know, I know, better late than never. This was one of our projects we intended to complete after purchasing the house…4 years ago! Somehow we never got around to it but now it’s a must. For 4 years I have had about 3 cabinets, one small counter top space to cook and prepare foods on and no dishwasher. We quickly realized with two infants on the way we needed more cabinets, more space and a DISHWASHER. I will officially retire my OCD dishwasher duties (for the most part) in a few weeks when I have a brand new beautiful kitchen with a dishwasher. We had hoped to start this a little sooner but with the help we are getting on it we had to wait until they had availability. Thus it has come down to crunch time. Let’s just hope these babies hold out a few more weeks to March or so!
