25 + 26 Weeks | Twins Bumpdate

Twins Bumpdate: 25 + 26 weeks


How far along?
25/26 weeks!  

Babies are the size of?
Eggplants (10in each; 2lbs each)

Total weight gain/loss?
11lbs+

Are you showing?
Yes! I was actually asked twice this week if I was due any day now! Haha!

Cravings?
I'm still craving Shrimp and Grits...any seafood really.

Sleeping?
It's still a hit or miss situation.  Some nights it's decent and some nights I'm up at 3am and can't go back to sleep.

Symptoms?
Swelling hasn't gone away and I've really bad acid indigestion and heartburn lately.  I get the occasional headache, but that could just be from having toddlers.
 
Genders?
TWINS GIRLS!  If you haven't seen our gender reveal, you can watch the video here and read my blog post here.

Movement?
My stomach looks like a scene from an alien movie.  It's crazy how much they are both moving.  Baby B moves way more than Baby A.

Mood this week?
It's been a bittersweet week for all of us.

Best moment this week?
We found out we would be leaving Florida this week because of a job my husband took in Indiana.  You can read about that here.  With that being said, we put our house on the market and planned as many activities and play dates as we could before we left.  We went to the Crayola Experience, Medieval Times and DISNEY WORLD!  We had a blast but it was exhausting.  We said goodbye and tried to see as many people as we could and love on them before our big trip to the Midwest.

Last Month with the Funk's | We've Moved!

In the beginning of the year I started "last week with the Funk's" and kept up with it until I found out I was pregnant with twins and wow!  Bring on the exhaustion.  I literally couldn't get out of bed some days and when I could, I still could barely keep my eyes open.  Needless to say, I haven't posted a weekly update on our family in months, so I thought I would start monthly updates and we'll see how that goes. ;)

What a whirlwind of a month June was for our little family.  If you've been following along on Instagram, then you know we've moved!  When we found out we were expecting twins, we immediately knew that we were going to need help and wanted to be closer to family.  My husband is from Indiana, so we started to get a feel for the area and he started to reach out about a transfer for his job.  Little did we know that it would get approved and happen as quickly as it did.  With that being said, June was full of catching up and seeing as many friends as we could and getting in some Florida activities with our girls that we had yet to do.

Our last family photo in front of our FL home.

We went to Dinosaur World, which I highly recommend if there is one near you.  Besides being almost 6 months pregnant in the Florida heat/humidity when we went, we had a blast and it is easily somewhere we would go back to.  


I got a prenatal massage which helped my sciatica pain tremendously, was showered by some of my favorite people for the twins and had a fun date night with my husband all in one weekend.  It was much needed knowing that the girls and I would be leaving soon and my husband would be staying in Florida to finish selling our home.


The girls and I went to a $1 movie to see Curious George.  If you don't already know, most theaters have Summer movie specials for kids and it's cheap and a good way to keep them entertained and beat the heat. We also attended a really fun event at ZooTampa.   


We ended our last weekend in Florida with a family trip to Orlando which included going to Crayola Experience, Medieval Times and Disney World!!  Seriously such a fun weekend and I'm working on getting those blog posts ready.  We had planned on Legoland as well, but after 12 straight hours at Disney, this pregnant mama was exhausted.  


Father's Day was low key as we did some more packing and just relaxed after a busy weekend.  My MIL flew in that next day and was able to help me do more around the house and keep the girls entertained as we prepared for our house to go on the market.

Like I said, crazy busy month that went by way too fast! We definitely didn't get to see everyone we wanted to, but I made so many wonderful friends during my last 8 years in Florida that I know we will back!
