34 Weeks

The boys have been growing for 34 weeks. I can hardly believe it! They continue to move constantly, and I continue to feel increasingly tired. I think I will be saying that until these babies are born. The last two days, I have been awake maybe 6 hours of the day? Sleeping is my job, it seems.

I find it impossible to keep up with my appetite these days. I am always hungry, yet nothing sounds good. I just want chocolate milk and cheese, which is a problem. Sleeping all day also isn't helping me get the amount of calories I need.

Speaking of impossibles, I also find it impossible to get dressed. I stay in my pajamas every day except for Mondays when I go to appointments because really why bother? Yesterday, I managed to get ready for my doctor's appointment and an outing to Target. I felt like a huge success (no pun intended...well, maybe a little).
See! I am a waddle-saurus!!
Nathan pushed me around in a wheelchair and it felt wonderful to get out of the house on a "date." I was anxious about not having fitted sheets, diapers, and the other remaining baby items on our list, so the trip was an absolute necessity in my mind. We bought what we needed and are hopefully prepared for two little ones (prepared when it comes to material things, at least).

We then met Ty and Jenny for dessert and appetizers at Applebees. It was the perfect date for a pregnant lady. As we drove home, I realized Nathan and I will not have time for dates for the next few...years? I would say months, but I really don't see us leaving three children for a very long time, especially after we move and he starts graduate school. Good thing we both consider a bowl of ice cream and Netflix the perfect date :)

We'll see how much longer I last. These babies are welcome to come whenever they like, but selfishly I really hope they don't come until after Thanksgiving. I am excited to eat ridiculous amounts of delicious foods. I'm thinking I'll have no trouble reaching my calorie goal for a few days :)
