Oh my lanta, how time has flown! We are now 22 Weeks pregnant with our little men. Which means, it’s finally crunch time! The reality is, these boys can come any time within the next 10-12 weeks, preferably after 27 weeks of course!What updates do we have for you this week?
First, Baby B goes back in for his ultrasound on Friday, it’s going to be a doozy! I’m almost certain he didn’t turn back over as I haven’t felt much of him as of late.
Second, we have our glucose test the following week. If you’ve ever been pregnant you know, glucose in the orange or red bottles is absolutely disgusting. However, it’s a vital test to be done. I don’t think I have gestational diabetes, but I do get super weak from time to time if I don’t eat on a regular schedule. We shall see how that goes!
Third, let’s speak on diastasis recti. If you’ve been watching our Facebook page, I already touched base on this. It really hurts people! Diastasis recti is the literal stretching or ripping of the abdominal wall. Baby B’s positioning makes the diastasis recti much worse because I’ve never had it at the top of my abdominal wall. In short he’s ripping my abdominal muscle and it feels like a burning ripping sensation. What does help it? Ice, and sitting propped up but leaned back.
Fourth and finally, I promised you all a bump pic. And, I’m gonna say it again…I have never really “shown” until the tail ends of my pregnancies. With the exception of Caidence because she had pre-e. However, this bump is not a “bump” per say but they’re popping out there.
That’s all for this week folks.
PS – babies are the size of a papaya!
