16 Weeks with the Twins

Week of December 11, 2014

How far along: 16 weeks! Almost half way!
I forgot to take a 16 week pic, so this was at
work to show my sister how big I've gotten
16 weeks 1 day

Due Date: October 6, 2013

Total weight gain/loss: About 11

Maternity clothes? yes! I swear they are so comfortable! 

Stretch Marks? Yup!

Sleep: Yep! Still good there!

Best moment this week: we've had a great week! We got back Tuesday and Adam took weds off and we spent a great day with the boys seeing jingle rails at the Eiteljorg and then went to my u/s to see our girls!!! Lorelai is 5 oz and Laynie is 4 oz. Lorelai's heart rate is 187 and Laynie's is 183! 

Movement: still nothing regular

Food cravings: nothing really. 

Food aversions: none

Gender: girls! 

Labor Signs: none yet thank goodness

Belly Button in or out? Still in 

What I miss: nothing really. This pregnancy is going well and is a lot easier than with the boys. (They will probably be terrible babies or something!) but I just hope it continues. But I guess I miss sleeping on my stomach comfortably because lets face it side sleeping is not as comfortable.

What I am looking forward to: Nothing really happening this week! So just continuing to get closer to meeting our littles. 

Size of the Baby: 

Baby's now the size of an avocado!
Watch what you say...tiny bones forming in baby's ears mean she can now pick up your voice. A few more minuscule changes: Eyebrows, lashes, and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming.

15 Weeks with the Twins

Week of December 4, 2014

How Far Along? 15 weeks yay!

Due Date: October 6, 2013

Total weight gain/loss: I weighed myself before I left for FL and I think I'm up about 9!
15 weeks 3 days on our sunset cruise in FL

Maternity clothes? yup! I need to get some winter clothes!!! 

Stretch Marks? Oh you bet! 

Sleep: not too bad really. Day time sleep is always hard. But not overly bad! 

Best moment this week: Findjng out my instincts were right and we are having GIRLS!!! I'm so excited to two adorable girls to join out family!!! 

Movement: still nothing regular or daily. But I do feel them on occasion ! 

Food cravings: any and all food is good!

Food aversions: none

Gender: GIRLS!!!! We did a gender reveal the Saturday before we left. We had just a few close friends and family. We FaceTimed A LOT  of people for it! Lol but I wore a white shirt and since Adam could t wait for the results. He knew what they were  and he put pink paint on his hands and then came from behind and put his hands on my belly! It was perfect! I was/am so excited! 

Labor Signs: none yet thank goodness

Belly Button in or out? Still in! 

What I miss: again this week it's not feeling like a bloated cow!

What I am looking forward to: Well since we are in FL I'm really excited to get back to my boys. Adam and I miss them so much. We are having fun but man do we miss them. It's a lot harder than I thought being away from them.
But I'm also excited to get back and go to my ultrasound on weds! I start my weekly fluid scans and I couldn't be more excited to start monitoring these babies and making sure all is ok, as well as getting to see them!!!

Size of the Baby: 

Baby's now the size of a naval orange!
Continuing the march toward normal proportions, baby's legs now out-measure his arms. And, finally, all four limbs have functional joints. Your fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, though you probably can't feel the movements just yet.

Size of baby: 

Baby's now the size of a lemon!
Your adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine, and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys, and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over her body for warmth.
