31 weeks


How Far Along: 31 weeks
Size of Babies: As of our appointment about 3 weeks ago, Brayden was 2 lbs. 11 oz. and Bailey was 2 lbs. 10 oz.
Total Weight Gain: I'm getting bigger. I know I've gained since our last appointment but not sure how much.
Maternity Clothes: No getting into regular clothes anymore. Those days are over. haha
Gender: It's a boy and a girl!!! Brayden Benton Wayne Yarbrough & Bailey Marie Yarbrough
Movement: The babies' have slowed down alot. There are some days where Bailey doesn't move much at all. I know their running out of room. They still ball up when I'm on my feet alot moving around. They move more when I'm stretched out on the couch.
Food Cravings: Ice cream!!
What I Miss: I can't wait for the day when I can sleep on my stomach.
Sleep: Same 'ol!! Still getting up every couple hours and sometimes every hour. Toss and turn the whole night. It's gotten to the point where I'm not comfortable on my back anymore. I've found when I'm lying on my back the babies like to get up in my ribs and that is not fun....let me tell ya!
Symptoms now: Swelling with a capital S....{my feet and hands.} I've been propping my feet up alot. My hands don't swell as much as my feet but my knuckles ache. My body gets really stiff especially during the night. My hands are really tight and sometimes it's hard for me to even open a bottle of water. Overall, I'm still doing great....but I have to admit I'm getting to the point where I'm over it. haha I'm ready to see our babies.
Best Moment this week: Thanksgiving!!!! Brandon and I spent Thanksgiving this year at our house since I wasn't able to travel to our parents which is 2 1/2 hours away. We missed seeing our family but it was sooo nice to just relax and not have to run up and down the road like crazy seeing everyone. It always wears us out. We didn't cook...which means we didn't have to clean either!!! :)

Next Appointment: I see the regular doctor tomorrow {I wouldn't be surprised if they put me on bedrest....I hope not. We shall see} and the specialist on Thursday.
