How big are the babies? their the size of a Cucumber 

Total weight gain: 53 pounds {pre-pregnancy weight 188} I've only have gained 35 pounds my entire pregnancy but in the last two weeks I've gained almost 20 pounds of fluid on my lower body. 

Maternity Clothes? Definitely Not! I'm HUGE!

Maternity Fashion:  I'm wearing a dress from Forever 21 it's actually a size 3X. I'm feel so embarrassed saying that but I've gained so much weight these last two weeks and I'm still in shock I'm wearing a 3X. 

Stretch marks? Yes, Tons!!!

Sleep: Sleep!? What sleep? What's that? I'm literally waking up every 20-30 to pee I'm constantly waddling to the bathroom and sometimes I don't make it. It's getting ridiculous! As you can see from the picture above I have huge bags under my eyes and their blood shot red! I'm so sleep deprived!

Best Moment this week: Waking up Wednesday morning know I was going to finally meet my sweet boys!

Miss Anything? Sleep and my body!

Movement: Yes! I have no idea how these boys are moving so much still like there is no room lol but their finding away.

Food cravings: Anything sweet! For the last 2 weeks I haven't had anything sweet because of my diabetes I now have and I'm on sweet success so I can't have anything sweet. This sucks!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing at all!

Gender: Two very Active little Boys!

35 weeks

How far along: 35 weeks

How big are the babies? their the size of a Coconut

Total weight gain: 44 pounds {pre-pregnancy weight 188} So I went to my Dr appt and they weighted me and said I was 232! WHAT?! I gained 9 pounds. I didn't know to cry or faint. I was doing so good with my weight and now it feels like I blew up over night. My Dr says it's because I have a lot of fluid in my feet, ankles and legs and that's what is causing the weight gained. 

Maternity Clothes? No

Maternity Fashion:  I'm wearing a cream lace dress from Forever 21.

Stretch marks? Yes,  THERE EVERYWHERE!!!!! 

Sleep: My sleep has been Horrible with a capital H! I wake up every hour or every 2 hours. I go to bed at 10pm and I'm right back up at 12am, then 1:20, then 2:40, then 3:46 am and next thing you know it I'm up at 4:30am. It's absolutely horrible! Sunday night I actually sleep for 4 hours and I couldn't believe it. I was so happy I got 4 straight hours of sleep.  

Best Moment this week: The best moment this week was capturing our growing family! We took our Maternity photos Saturday afternoon and we loved them so much. All the love and the support make the anticipation of the boys arrival even more exciting!

Miss Anything? Being able to do things on my own.  

Movement: From my weekly ultrasounds the boys are cramped. There heads are always touching and they are hardly moving.

Food cravings: What I'm craving I can't even eat! :0( For the past two weeks I've been on a strict diet. My dietitian said my blood sugar has been too high so I'm on a diet now and I have to test my blood sugar 4 times a day. I can no longer have my favorite Orange juice or Apple juice. No more Popsicle, no bagels, no cold cereal, no Nothing!! It feels like I can't eat anything! 

Anything making you queasy or sick: No!

Gender: Two little Boys! 

Labor Signs: Yes! On Thursday I was in so much pain. I couldn't even walk. My feet, ankles, legs and thighs are extremely swollen so it was hard for me to walk and I was experiencing abdominal pain. I went to my weekly NST appointment and they sent me straight to the hospital. I didn't know if I was going into labor or not so I called DJ at work and asked him to come home. DJ came home and we went to the hospital. Well to make a long story short it was a false alarm and after 5 long hours they finally let me go home. They said I was having no contractions and I wasn't dilated so they sent me home. 

Symptoms: Extremely swollen thighs, legs, ankles and feet. It's so hard for me to walk, sit or stand for a long period of time. It hurts so much. I feel so handicap and I hate it. DJ has to help me off and on the couch and he also has to help me get in and out of the shower. 

Have you started to show yet? Yes, I'm HUGE all over! 

Belly button in or out? Innie/Outtie 

Wedding ring on or off? Off

Mood most of the time: Anxious!!! 

Looking forward to: I'm so looking forward to my Due Date! I so ready for the boys to get here all ready!

Baby names? Kingsley and Kash 

Thoughts: This week is mixed emotions. I'm getting anxious for the boys to get here all ready and at the same time I'm in so much pain because my body is hurting, so it makes it kinda hard for me to get things done. I have the boys diaper bag already ready but my hospital bag is not quit ready. The crib is half put up and we still have a bunch of other things to do and it seems like were running out of time to do them. I'm also restless and is not getting any sleep at night. But two good positives this week we did our Maternity shoot and the boys are healthy and doing great!

Thoughts: This week I spent resting and sleeping alot. For some reason I was so tired and sleepy the entire week and got hardly anything done. I still have so much stuff to do before the boys get here and I need to get a move on it but Mama was extremely tired this week. I spent most of my time in bed and with my feet elevated because my feet and ankles are so swollen it's now becoming hard for me to walk. I shared this with my Dr and specialist and they said everything is normal and it just fluid but I was a little worried.
