29 Weeks

Another week has safely passed, and I am definitely feeling thoroughly pregnant. The boys move throughout the day, and Baby A continues to move throughout the night as well.  Recently, I have been unable to sleep unless I am surrounded by a wall of pillows. Lucky for me, I found a fellow twin mom in the area who offered her body pillow at an amazing price.

I am now the proud owner of this amazing item:
Kind of a weird picture, but you get the idea.
Crazy, huh? It wraps around the front and the back. Nathan and I picked it up after my doctor's appointment, and I cannot wait to try it out tonight. I expect some amazing sleep!

Our appointment with the perinatologist was great and everything appears to be going wonderfully. The boys are exactly the same size and weigh an estimated 2 pounds 12 ounces. This means there are still no signs of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, which is an amazing blessing. Additionally, both babies are head down, and I am hoping they continue to stay put for the next few weeks. The doctor said we were all doing "swimmingly," and I really couldn't ask for a better adjective to describe our current status.

So, here I am at 29 weeks.
I am so big that my belly button has officially popped out (that never happened with Eliza, so it really grosses me out). I saw Eliza staring at my belly this weekend and suddenly, she lifted my shirt, grabbed at my bellybutton, and shouted, "Got your nose!!"

I cried....but then I laughed because it's pretty funny that my two year old thought my bellybutton was a nose.

And then yesterday, I was handing Eliza some goldfish and dropped one. I looked on the ground and side to side, trying to find the missing goldfish. Eventually, Eliza noticed it resting safely on my protruding stomach and said, "There it is!"

It happens. I'm glad we have Eliza around to make this pregnancy entertaining.


  1. You have no idea how jealous I am of you right now. I want one of those body pillows soooo bad! Haha. Eliza is so funny and awesome.

  2. You look totally great!! I cannot imagine what it must feel like to have TWO babies in there! I hope that body pillow helps. I loved mine, but I've never seen one so ginormous. Awesome!!!

  3. That pillow is the BOMB!
    And I laughed out loud when I read that Eliza yelled "Got your nose."
    Seriously? How cute is she!

  4. Could you tell me where you got this pillow? Is it firm?
