Belly picture coming soon!
How I am feeling: Honestly, I never thought I would make it this far!! My whole pregnancy has been building up to making it to 37 weeks, so this is new territory for me. I am not going to sugarcoat things here (just in case there are other twin mamas out there looking for some commiseration) but my poor body is slowly giving out. With every step I take, my back and pelvis feels like it is breaking in half. The skin on my lower belly is so stretched that it has cracked open and is bleeding. My skin itches so bad every second of every day. This skin itching is, by far, the most severe form of torture that I can imagine. I wake up in the middle of the night with my hands covered in blood from itching. It is bad. Speaking of nighttime, I am only sleeping about 30-45 minutes at a time. There is no position that I can be comfortable in, so I am just exhausted. I am not really meaning to complain here, because to me, there is nothing worse than a whiny, pregnant woman. I hear women complaining all the time and it drives me crazy, so I am just sharing the cold, hard facts about twin pregnancy. I still feel very lucky to be pregnant at all. I still love these babies more than anything. And I will still carry on with this pregnancy so that they get every day they possibly can inside the womb.
