32 Weeks

I've become an addict.

Not an addict to chocolate, pickles, or watching Gilmore Girls (although that one might happen since Netflix is adding it next month!).

I've become an addict to WATER! Which means me and the loo spend a lot of quality time together.

Seriously though, I can't get enough water. It's like I crave it. Just between the time I go to bed and wake up in the morning I drink about 40 ounces or 8 glasses of water. During the day I drink at least a gallon. It's awesome.

In other news, my belly is measuring full term! I feel like if I can handle a twin pregnancy as well as I have, a singleton will be a total breeze. Yes, I know every pregnancy is different. We'll see. The babes are as active as ever. We poke each other all the time, although it would be nice to know who's foot, bum, and legs I'm playing with. It's a bit of a jumbled mess in there due to baby girl's indecisiveness on how to position her little body. Braxton Hicks are getting more frequent and every time all the tightening makes me run to the bathroom. Poor little abused bladder. 

I had my forth and hopefully last glucose test on Monday. Another lovely three-hour test involving the nastiest drink imaginable, a starving stomach, and blood draw after blood draw after blood draw. I watched the documentary "Fed Up" the day before which is all about exposing how terrible sugar is for us and how it's added to practically everything. And then the next day I drink 100 grams of sugar for the test...not a smart idea. My doctor also told me that if I were to go in to labor before 34 weeks they would try to stop it, but any time after 34 weeks she would deliver. Things are getting real!

Funny story time: I texted my husband telling him that I was 60% effaced and half a centimeter dilated and he started freaking out. His coworker that recently had a baby exclaimed, "She's effacing and dilating already?!" which didn't help the situation. Chris was about ready to leave work and take me to the hospital. The poor thing. I love him to pieces.

Looking forward to: Utah deciding to change seasons...enough with this 80-90 degree weather!

And this picture makes me feel like super woman:


  1. Is it just me, or does it seem odd that the babies' hair is labeled in the diagram? Everything else is anatomy; then hair....

  2. You should try jicama! It taste like garden peas :) one of my favorites! You can find it at most grocery stores. Rancho market it's really cheap!

    1. Nice, I'll have to go find some! What do you eat it with?

    2. I eat it as a snack. But you can have it with a sandwich.

  3. I can't believe you're already 32 weeks! Let's hope you make it a few more. :-)

  4. Are you going to get maternity pictures done? :)

    1. I'm not planning on it...I'd rather save money for newborn photos :)

  5. Smart idea, photographers can be very expensive! I didn't have any maternity pictures taken either. Also, do you plan on posting pictures of the twins once they're here? I know some people prefer not to. Good luck with the rest of your pregancy, you're almost done! Xo
