I am up just under 14 lbs. from my pre-pregnancy weight, and feeling pretty good still. I am out of breath after pretty medial tasks, largely because my diaphragm is being squished by the 2 lbs of baby, 4 more lbs of amniotic fluid, and 4 lbs of placenta, commandeering it's way into my abdomen!
|All of that looks something like this!|
Ryan and our families are getting excited to meet the twins. We can't wait to have them home, and see what our family looks like as we learn to deal with the new challenges. I am embracing it all the best I can, but as many of you can expect, it is all a bit overwhelming for me. Being a planner makes it a challenge to just patiently wait and see what happens. Ill learn to be more flexible and I know that will make me a better person, so cheers to that (with sparkling grape juice of course)! Next month I will start working less hours, as my body shows signs of not being able to handle standing for 8-10 hours. I love this time of year in a running store, but when my back and feet start to hurt I'm pretty much useless! I mean who really wants to work with a grimacing, breathy, waddling girl anyway! lol!!
I am excited to work my way through week 22. Everyday is a day closer to being un-pregnant! I don't know how elephants do this for 3 years... I guess when they are this cute they are worth it?!?
