Bump: Getting bigger (if that is possible). It is so much fun when strangers ask my due date, and I answer February and then pause before explaining there are three in there. My belly button still feels like it is ripping, but it hasn’t popped yet.
These are actually the same PJ's I wore in my 11 week picture - check out the 10-week difference (and that was with my shirt pulled tight).
Cravings: Been cooking a lot more lately – casseroles, soups, etc., still eating Zoe’s whenever I can, and trying my hardest to get all my calories in each day.
Symptoms: I have recently had a lot more energy and have all in all felt a lot better than I did a few weeks ago. Thank goodness because a few weeks ago I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it to December/January. I still have a bit of an upset stomach, but that has also been a lot better (not counting when I accidentally glutened myself Thursday night – it was BAD). Speaking of, I guess I am still a little scattered brained too (because I forgot to check the labels at the grocery store, which resulted in said glutening). Also my hands have been a little swollen/fatter. Some days I can wear my rings and other days I can't (depends on the weather and how much I was on my feet the day before and if I've glutened myself). I got my mom's wedding band from my dad resized to fit my ring finger for days when my ring doesn't fit. It is gold and thick and late 70's awesome.
Activities: This week we stayed home to get ready for back-to-back weekends of travel and company. Jay carefully ticked off my honey-do-list of all the little things around the house that we haven’t finished since we moved in. He is going to be a great Daddy/weekend warrior! Meanwhile, I worked a couple of shifts at the Upstate Moms of Multiples Club consignment sale. It was great meeting and getting to know several of the ladies better, including three moms of triplets. Yay! I also got some sleepers and onsies for the boys and a few other needed accessories. All of that prompted me to organize the nursery. I got all our clothes (from this consignment sale, the sale in Birmingham that mom went to, and gifts from friends) washed and sorted by size and organized the closet and chest. Now we are ready for showers and lots of visiting with family and friends.
