29 weeks pregnant with Twins - No room!! - warning whinge post

29 weeks

29 weeks and feeling much further than that. I can't get off the bed properly which isn't helped by the fact I sleep on the floor (no no don't panic it's by choice! haha). we are a co-sleeping family and both girls slept with us for 2 years solid and now they come in during illnesses and when they feel they need extra comfort (seems to happen around growth spurts which they still seem to get except their not eating more........hmmmm) anyway this happens a lot in the week still and we have slept on just a mattress for around 3 years as it was just safer and more comfortable. But I can't even get off properly due to some wonderful pelvic pain, what a sight I look (I also sleep naked so yes it really is a sight watching me get out of bed ha ha). So I'm in the process of thinking 'wtf?!' am I going to do when I 'm like 37 weeks scenarios in my head, not quite worked it out yet.

Oh the rib pain is getting worse and upper back, finding a position I feel comfortable in is proving to be a little difficult. I manage to get quite comfy on the birth ball but I feel like Twin A will fall out (she feels really low down) if I sit for long so I spend most of the day moving from one area/position to another. Although I've been uncomfortable for many weeks, I feel like my bodies suddenly realised that it's now carrying two babies, I'm really going to feel it and it's going to get harder. My skin feels really stretched and I've felt a few stitch type pains across the lower half (I guess that's the nerves?).

So yeah moving on from the whinging! I spent the weekend looking through Charlotte's old nappy stash. I was surprised to find lots of nappies that I can use pretty much from birth and some small wraps. I knew doing that would make me feel less anxious about the birth and it brought back the excited butterflies about birthing and then meeting both our babies. I took some pictures of my findings as well as my lovely Mother-ease rikki wraps and washable wipes!

Fluff excitement! :)

I have my midwife appointment tomorrow, I must remember to wee before I eat this time and fingers crossed all will be fine and clear.
I'm waiting to hear from the Head of Midwifery, I hope it isn't long as I would really like to see her before the 32 week scan and before writing out my birth plan, I will let all know as soon as I have!

I'll update again soon :)
