31 week update!!!

Well, things are looking good. I am starting to feel worn down sometimes. Being pregnant with two babies is no joke! It is so darn taxing on your whole body! It takes every ounce of me to get through a day!

So....where to start? I had my OB appt this week. I only gained 2lbs (in 2 weeks) and she was happy with that. So I am up 34lbs now, which I am very proud of by the way! Also I am measuring 42 weeks now! I start going for my non-stress tests Nov 2nd. I have to go twice a week, thats gonna suck but hey, whatcha gonna do? OH yeah, I PASSED MY 3 HOUR GLUCOSE TEST!!! GO ME! So, I can resume my insane sweets eating! All I want this week is a chocolate banana cream pie! I think I will make one on Friday night!

I finally got the nursery back in order after the baby shower. It was sheer hell trying to find someplace to put all the things we got. I cleared out room in the linen closet and got rid of tons of things we didn't need anymore and finally found room! So everything is washed, folded and put away and we are ready for some babies!

I also have been cooking like a maniac lately? Is that a form or nesting? I haven't cooked more than 5 things this whole pregnancy (Thanks to my loving husband Gary) and now thats all I want to do!

So the past week I have been making tons of food to freeze for when the babies get here! So far I have made the following:

3 meals of shepherds pie
5 meals of chili
3 meals of chicken stroganoff
10 twice baked potatoes
4 meals of tuna noodle casserole
4 meals of chicken pot pies
Honey mustard chicken fingers
BBQ Chicken Fingers
Beef Bean and Cheese Burritos

If you are looking for easy recipes I have been using this blog for good ideas she has great ideas and recipes there!

So I figure by the time I am done I should have enough food to feed Dh and I for at least 2 months! Lol. By then hopefully we will have a good routine down and will have time to cook again! I have to say though, that having this food in the freezer makes me feel literally 1000x better! I guess its just one less thing I need to worry about when the girls get here! Who is going to have time to cook when they are here? Not me thats for sure!

Well, thats all I can think of right now. I have no memory left on my memory card so I need to get a new one so I can take a updated picture! I'll try to get one within the next couple days!

Good on you for cooking and freezing - you will be so glad you did it. Your furry children are so cute too - I just love labs.
