We have made it into the third trimester (wooooo ) At 28 weeks, each baby is the size of a coconut , or about 2.5LBs each and 16 inches long (can say I've ever seen a 16 inch coconut ♀️) They're certainly growing, and since we found a super awesome new OB last week, she let us know they are 2lbs 10oz and 2lbs 4oz, or about 15% different now. They also have been having the hiccups!
I've increased my protein intake to try and grow the babies into little giants since this is the last 8-9 weeks of their time on the inside.
My symptoms are becoming worse every day... I was using compression socks to reduce my ankle swelling but that no longer works, and I also got some compression gloves to try and reduce the pain, tingling and swelling in my hands (carpal tunnel is a big, huge bitch) Back pain, face swelling, etc the list goes on and on. And the itching never stops. And to put salt on the wound, im getting some belly stretch marks like woah The only comfort is knowing that a tummy tuck is in my future none of it really matters though, because I can't wait to have two babies to hang out with! TWO! Every time I buy something in twos I do a happy dance a little on the inside. Also, in case I haven't yet mentioned it in my other posts, @19muffinito is da real MVP--I'm more and more appreciative of him every since day and what he does for me and the kids. .
Little toes & a little scabby nose can mean only one thing... today we saw Layla & Lilly Lilly came down the stairs & scraped her little nose she's ok though clearly as she's been taking selfies lol!!
