Pregnancy Update: Week 31

Well this took a little longer then I would have liked to post, but I wanted to let you know how my ultrasound went as well! Baby A is still measuring smaller at 4lbs2oz, Baby B is measuring 4lbs12oz. So I am carrying just under 10lbs of baby not including all the other "stuff" in there. Baby A is still breech and is on my left side, Baby B is now laying transverse (across my tummy) with her head on my left. They must really love each other to have their heads to close. Both of their feet are on the lower right side of my tummy, which explains my extremely painful right hip bone. They are rating both babies 8 out of 8 right now, so they are both practically perfect in every way!! I can not wait to hold my two princess' in my arms in a month or so. Grow babies grow!!!

How far along: 31 Weeks
Size of babies: 4 Navel Oranges (Each)
Total weight gain/loss: -2 pounds. Under my pre-pregnancy weight. Total gain is 13 lbs from my lowest weight.
Gender: 2 Girls. We are keeping the names quiet until they are born.
Maternity clothes: Completely in maternity clothes. Wearing lots of dress' because they are the most comfortable and they help me stay cool.
Stretch marks: Only getting new stretch marks on the top of my belly.
Belly Button: The top of my belly button is poking out and the rest is shallow.
Sleep: As much as I can get, which is not very much lately. 
Symptoms: Still battling acid reflux and heartburn. Sore pelvis and belly. Swollen ankles if I am on my feet for more than half an hour. Braxton hicks are in full swing, and painful.
What I miss: Being comfortable. Whether that be laying down, sitting, standing, or anything in between.
Cravings: Nothing extreme this week.
Aversions: None thankfully. But my appetite is not as it should be. I think it is because of the heat.
Best Moment: Seeing my daughter Miranda realize what was on the ultrasound machine.
What I am looking forward to: Holding my babies in 4 to 6 weeks.
