32 weeks

How Far Along: 32 weeks... most likely 6 weeks or less!
How Big are the Babies? They are each the size of a squash and probably getting close to 3.5- 4lbs each.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm up 25 lbs since retrieval... I guess I'm making up for lost time.
Maternity Clothes: Most of the time.
Movement: Lots of rolling, stretching and head butting/kicking the 'exit'. 
Belly button in or out? Super shallow and it pops out on occasion. 
What I miss: SLEEP! It is so painful to roll from one side to the other!
Milestones: I made it- 32 weeks was my doctor's big goal. We are here, and while we all want these little stinkers to stay in for a few more weeks, I am feeling a lot less anxious about them arriving early.  
Food Cravings: Chocolate milk. All.The.Time. 
Aversions: Eggs..... still grossing me out, but not as badly as before!
Symptoms:  Exhaustion, inability to sleep at night, very tightly stretched sore belly skin, numb belly button, leg cramps and lots of general soreness.
Best Moment this week: Hearing their heartbeats at the doctor and hearing him say that everything looks great! Shopping for all the things we still needed for our hospital bags. 

Funny Moment: Nothing too hilarious this week. I think the funniest moments have been when the boys start moving and I'm sitting still with a tight top on- I seriously look like my belly has been taken over by aliens!
Tip of the Week: Sleep whenever you can!!
What I'm looking forward to: Our next ultrasound in a little more than a week. I cannot wait to see how big our boys are!

... and a 5 week comparison....
27 Weeks

32 Weeks
I wish the picture from this morning could have captured the madness that was happening in my belly while I was trying to take a decent picture!

You look great, congrats on 32 weeks. I remember how weird it felt when my two boys were moving inside of me, it seemed so surreal!
