30-32 Week Update

HELLO! I am still here and I am still carrying these two sweet babies around! We have just been sooooo busy with the new house and back to school that I have been a little MIA. We do not have Internet set up at the new house yet and getting free WiFi from the neighbors is not that reliable. So I have been WAY behind on blogging and reading blogs. So here is a little update on me and our duo as we have reached week 32.

The Snyder Duo Week 32
32 weeks 1 day.
Week 30
(First Week of School- first night in new house)

Week 31

Week 32
Baby Size:

According to my sources the babies are bout the size of a head of lettuce. Each about 19 inches long and weighing in around 3.9 lbs. At my last ultrasound a few weeks ago Shepard was about 3.7lbs and Sara Kate was measuring 3.13lbs. We go to the doctor tomorrow for our 32 week appointment so we shall see how they are measuring up then.

Weight Loss/Gain:

At my 30 week appointment I was +20 lbs. I am not sure if that still stands 2 weeks later, but we will find out tomorrow. All I know is that this belly is BIG! It gets bigger each day and finding things to wear is getting VERY difficult.

Maternity Clothes:

YES. Even my maternity clothes are getting too short due to the fact that this belly sticks out so far. I am running out of things to wear. I am thinking that if I really go 6 more weeks my 5th graders are going to start asking questions about my lack of wardrobe. I have about 6 nice things that fit. We went to a wedding this weekend and I tired on the dress that I wore the week I delivered Clark and it was obscenely short. Everything is short. EVERYTHING.

I am still having trouble sleeping. I get up on average 5 times a night to go to the bathroom which makes uninterrupted sleep impossible. I guess it is just preparing me for getting up numerous times during the night to take care of these two. I find it VERY difficult to get comfortable even on nights when I am exhausted. I just don't sleep well at this point.


I am feeling good, but by the end of the work day I am spent. My ankles have been swelling lately and some nights they are about the size of my thighs. NO KIDDING. You should have seen them at 11:30 the other night after the wedding! YIKES! I am also realizing that it is harder for me to keep up with Clark and to walk around in stores. A long trip to Target and and grocery trip to Kroger this weekend taught me that. By the end of the trip my ankles were huge, my bladder is busting and all I want to do is take a nap.


They are moving all the time. I feel kicks, jabs and rolls. I can even see most of the movement from the outside. I am not sure if the movements are arms, legs, knees, or any of that, I just know there is lots going on inside there. I am supposed to be kick counting and watching for 20 movements in 10 hours and I am pretty sure we are WAYYYYY above that. I know the movement might decrease soon due to the fact that they may soon run out of room. But as of now they are still moving machines. It is a little distracting at times as I just want to watch my belly roll around rather than my principal at faculty meetings or even the preacher on Sunday mornings.

Best Moment This Week:

Well we have had lots of interesting moments this week such as my first public pregnancy breakdown at Target on Saturday, but one of the best things was that we had the nursery painted on Wednesday and I do enjoy the color. It looks great with the bedding and tonight we plan on putting up the second crib and working some in there. Right now it is bare walls and ONE crib just so I could get an idea of what it will look like. Hopefully I will work up there a little bit each night this week to get it looking good for my sweeties.

Still LOTS to do, but the paint looks good!
This room was blue with a navy celling so the change is good.

What I Miss:

I still miss Jazzercise. I miss bending over easily. I miss sleeping on my belly. I miss having lots of energy.I miss clothes that fit. Don't get me wrong. I love feeling these two move and I love that they are growing big and strong, but  there are things that I miss.

Looking Forward To:

We are taking a multiples class at the hospital tomorrow night. I hope to learn all kinds of good info there. I am also looking forward to my 32 week appointment tomorrow to learn all I can about these two. This weekend we are also going to the circus on Saturday and I have a baby shower on Sunday so I have LOTS to look forward too!! :)
