Twin Pregnancy-25, 26 & 27 Week Recap

by Natalie on May 18, 2015

Hiya!

It’s been a very busy few weeks and I haven’t had much of a chance to sit down and write a re-cap.  I was so lucky to be showered with love at three different occasions over the last three weeks that all my free time has been spent writing thank you notes! And being that my current emotional state is quite fragile, I found myself crying while writing about 99% of all of the thank you’s because I was so filled with gratitude…which definitely extended the time it took to get them written 😉

I’m not going to recap the baby showers here, as I hope to do a separate post on those, so I’ll just get to the “normal stuff” with a few shower pictures thrown in.

Highlights of the Week(s):

Definitely seeing friends and family at the baby showers.  My mom flew in and we drove to Kansas which was an insane amount of fun.  We realize we have never done a road trip together in the past and I’m already looking forward to our next.  Believe it or not (okay, if you know both of us I’m sure you can believe it) we chatted the entire way there AND back.  That’s like 18+ hours of solid talking!

Our first stop was the airport to pick up my sister.  I haven’t seen her since Thanksgiving and we were both teary messes!

The next morning we picked up my Aunt and the rest of the weekend was a blur of laughter, tears, and catching up!

In about 48-hours time I saw lots of friends-some that I hadn’t seen in years-and most of Colin’s extended family.  I spent Sunday afternoon visiting his grandparents on both sides which was really, really nice.

The time went so quickly.  If I could do it all over again, I would in a heartbeat.

On May 9th we celebrated Fitness in the City’s 2nd Birthday party, which was a blast!  I’ve been there just about two years too and spent a lot of time catching up with members.  I taught a 30-minute circuit class as part of the festivities, which was fun.

Last weekend my best friend from high school threw me a really nice shower/brunch here for friends and it was perfect!  It was a gorgeous day out and we spent the morning drinking mimosas (them), eating delicious food, and chatting.

Other highlights of the week include getting the dresser finished and starting to set up the nursery.  I’ll post pictures when it’s all done but it felt like a huge feat for us over here.

Workouts:

My workouts have definitely struggled a bit over the past few weeks with traveling and then picking up a cold that hung around for a week.  I did get in quite a few walks and about 6 barre classes over the past three weeks.  Last Wednesday I hopped into a class at Fitness in the City and it felt so good to workout, even if most of it was just body weight!

I’m definitely feeling more energy this week so I hope to get in some solid workouts.

Food:

My appetite isn’t too strong but I’ve been eating a TON of berries (as you can tell!).

I’ve also been enjoying more mini-meals throughout the day, like this:

Over the last few weeks I’ve done a poor job meal planning for dinners, but we’re back on track this week!  I have to admit that we picked up hot bar from Whole Foods a few too many times the beginning of May 😉

Looking Forward To:

This is my last week of teaching classes on a regular schedule at Fitness in the City.  It’s definitely bittersweet because I’ll miss seeing everyone, but I’ve been struggling with swollen ankles and feet by the end of the day, so knowing I will be able to rest after work with my feet up sounds SO good!  I hope to sub some classes here and there throughout June, but it will be a welcome break.

This weekend we have friends coming for Memorial Day and then Amber is coming to stay for a few days…  it’s going to be a social weekend and I can’t wait!

I don’t really have week 25 and 26 pics to share, but I do have a 27-week shot for ya!
