26 weeks

26 weeks and I'm still doing pretty good.  When I feel great I'm great.  There are other times though where I can't actually stand up without help, have little jabbing pains (be nice babies!), am out of breath and the swelling has started.  I'm still forgetting those moments mostly in the day to day and tell everyone that asks how easy it has been so far carrying 2 :)  I'm sure that may shift in the coming weeks but I'm enjoying it for now.  I think the fact that I'm still sleeping great all night helps!

I will say that the travelling WORE ME OUT.  We had cancelled/delayed flights, lots of lines and layovers that we didn't plan on.  I spent Monday sleeping just trying to catch up with it all.  Glad this is our last trip for the summer. 

We spent this past weekend visiting the daddies.  They both were able to feel their baby boys kicking.  What a great feeling for us.  These are the moments that make all this worthwhile, fun and exciting!  I don't think people understand how humbled we are to be given the responsibility to carry this wonderful couple's babies. 

Here is a picture of one of the daddies feeling their babies move for the first time:

24 Weeks

I can't believe we have made it this far already.  24 weeks 2 days and everything is going pretty great.  I do get super miserable by around 8 or 9 p.m. and am DONE each day.  I'm still sleeping good though so that really helps restart me each day. 

My back is starting to get pretty irritated at me by around 1pm at work.  I've brought in a pillow for my chair and went to the chiropractor today.  I think this will become a regular appointment. 

My monthly MFM appointment is on Monday.  It feels like everything is super smooth so I really hope the appointment reflects that.  My husband and I are taking a trip to NY  next weekend so everything really hinges on getting a good report from the doctor.  We are lucky enough to get to spend a weekend with the daddies and show off my (their) baby bump to their friends:)  We are very excited, especially because we get to leave our kids at home!!  We are due for a date 'weekend' since it is hard to fit date night into our big busy family. 

I've seen a few posts about flying while pregnant recently.  Hopefully I'm early enough it won't be too miserable!!  This will be it for us for travel until after the babies are born.

New OB

Today was my first appointment with my new OB.  He was fantastic and I am so relieved.  He seems very capable and confident and shared a lot of information.  MUCH different than the OB I started seeing.  I go back in 4 weeks, then starts every 2 weeks from there.  He did check my cervix.  He said there is some opening on the outside but the inside where it counts is high and closed.
