28 Weeks Pregnant With Twins Update

We made it to 3rd trimester you guys!!! This is a big deal for me —- the end is getting closer and closer. This was a WILD week – but not the best week. When I was not feeling Baby A as much at week 23 I was told to start doing kick counts and I have been – well I noticed that over the weekend Baby A started to fail her kick counts – I do not feel her much during the day regardless. So I ended up calling the OB office on Monday to let them know – I had an appointment on Tuesday and thought we would talk about it then. Well they had me come in on Monday. I will have that whole story tomorrow – because it is pretty crazy what happens.

Later on week 28 my mom and I went to where we were planning the twin’s baby shower. We decided on a restaurant since we would not have to worry about preparing the food and cleanup. Here is my mom trying a crab cake 🙂

Baby shower planning is in full swing. I am doing much of the crafty things because that is what I enjoy. My favorite thing in the world right now is doing crafts while watching Housewives of Beverly Hills 🙂 I will be right at 30 weeks when the twin’s baby shower takes place – which is pushing it for me. I can tell my daily amount of energy.

Here is my baby bump for the week. This is also my favorite position these days.
