32 weeks and pain is an understatement

30 weeks vs.32 weeks

Can you tell why exactly my hips are hurting? They've shifted downward and out...compared to two weeks ago!

-I've completely outgrown all shirts (minus a few).
-My hips feel dislocated
-The arches in my feet feel like they're breaking
-I am a walking furnace.
-My belly is a never-ending itchy
-Finally got some stretch marks! (not bad though)
- I am peeing 20 times a day
-I have to force myself to eat a decent sized meal
-I cannot breathe very well and have frequent anxiety attacks
-I am a hormonal maniac!

There's some key things I am going through right now...Sounds pleasant doesn't it? ON the other hand, I am moved in to our new house. It's lovely and the girls love it. I am constantly telling myself to rest now though because every little misplaced toy or mess and I go into OCD cleaning mode. I can't be doing that. It's ok to have a little mess for now...32 weeks and technically I could go into labor in 3+ weeks. 
I go to the doctors now every week for an ultrasound/non stress test and to evaluate and keep a track of the boys' weights since I have a high concern of having 9 pounders...
Today was one of the appointments, the next is sept.29th. As of right now though twin A is 4 lbs 4 oz and the other lad is 3 lbs 11 oz. not too far behind and good sized babies. Now is the time I will hopefully NOT be doing some serious weight gaining...I have 10 more pounds to go till i hit my target weight. 10! which I have to learn to put the cookies down. seriously. haha. The boys are now gaining fat and filling out every week. This is getting insanely surreal. The fact that they are almost here has me in a panic attack everyday. These are the last few weeks that we will be a family of 4...my two princesses have NO idea what's coming...
As for cravings right now I really have a few and one of them is coffee. Still, i always want noodles. That's really about it. 
I have a hard time sleeping and haven't experienced good sleep in I don't know how long. My arms always fall asleep and hurt so bad during the night so that wakes me up. ALong with my never empty bladder and hip pains. I cant rotate from one of my sides to the other without a huge POP and pain afterwards...no bueno! I just keep telling myself to enjoy my last pregnancy. This one is tough though and no where near like it was with the others.
We chose names...I'm debating on telling everyone till after though because i want it to be a surprise  and it'll seem more real that way. That's really all there is to my pregnancy as of right now...I'm tired, anxious and just ready to meet the occupants that have been living in my stomach for so long. Hopefully i can gather enough energy to make a video soon..but with the exhaustion that I have had lately, I don't know if that's possible...we shall see. <3 until another day


  1. I'm so glad that you've decided to update! I find myself every day wondering how you're doing through out all of this.

    It's so close to the end! The pain / sleepless nights I'm sure will be so worth it in the end. You're nearing the end stretch which I know you'll be thankful for.

    You still look beautiful! Pregnancy is such a beautiful thing it is amazing what a woman's body can do to protect the unborn. Truly an unbelievable, beautiful process! I'm most curious if you'll miss them being in you once their born. I always hear women saying they miss the feeling of being pregnant hm..

    Haha. <3 Stay strong you are almost there! Can't wait till everyone knows their names and see their perfect little faces!

  2. Hi Lia I second the comment above. I'm so glad you're now safely in your new home, I did try to wish you luck after your moving post but it wouldn't send, so instead I wish you many happy memories in your new home with your beautiful family.
    Your children are so lucky, I'm one of 4 also, 2 girls and 2 boys and its just amazing to grow up in that family set up. My sister also has 2 of each.
    I know you're really ready for those babies to be born by now. Take care of you and I'll keep checking back so I can meet your beautiful boys. Thinking of you Gilly x
