Preggers II -- Twins: 28 Weeks

How far along?  28 weeks

How I am feeling?  Pretty well and more comfortable and confident with this point of my pregnancy and listening to my body.

How big are babies?  The size of eggplants... between 1.5 to 2.5 pounds and 13.6 to 14.8 inches long

Sleep:  I sleep pretty well but I do get up many times a night to use the restroom

Boy/Girl, Boy/Boy, Girl/Girl Predictions: Two babies

Babies Nicknames:  Babies, or Twins 
  Best moment this weekFriday and Saturday -- Hubby and I were both home both days and I feel like our home really came together in those two days, plus I didn't over-do it.  We had two young guys from our church come by and help Hubby move some large furniture that he couldn't move by himself (and I could not help him move) AND our cleaning gal paid us a visit.  Our house literally made a huge leap from "nice place" to "actual home" in a span of those 48 hours.  We now have two guest rooms where company can crash when needed, and Tracey Ann's room and the twins' nursery look like actual places where a child a sleep safely and feel comfortable.  One of the reason it was such a great moment was because I wasn't expecting our house to look this good until my mom arrives in a few weeks.  I had accepted that very little else can be unpacked until some reinforcements arrive -- well, they did arrive, but God sent helpers other than my mom and much sooner than I expected.

Food cravings:  Not anything specific at the moment..

Missing:  The ability to pick and carry Tracey Ann as much as I would like (and she would like)
Movements:  Yes, and they are a lot of fun... it seems to be getting pretty crowded in their little cacoon

Labor Signs:  No, thankfully... but, just to keep an accurate account of what's going on, Hubby and I met with a specialist this past week who came up from Denver and she seemed much more calm about my pregnancy than my doc up here -- and rightfully so because she handles high risk pregnancies all the time.  She said there is about a 50% chance that I will wind up in Denver at some point to try to control preterm labor or to have the twins... but we just have to wait and see how my body handles these next eight weeks of pregnancy.  She said the fact that my body is not in preterm labor yet is awesome, and a really good sign.

Comparison:  Here I am carrying Tracey Ann at 28 weeks

28 Weeks with the twins

... and for comparison

General Attitude: We're learning how to be very positive while keeping a flexible, wise plan in place.

 What I am looking forward to this week:  Well, I think just every day I can be here at home with Hubby and Tracey Ann with the twins safely in utero is wonderful and worth celebrating.

Milestones: I'm offically in my third trimester... and larger than I was at full term with Tracey Ann
