As you can see, the twin belly grows at a rapid speed. I don’t think it’s that bad. The twins are doing so well. We went to the doctors yesterday. They are amazing. How blessed am I? Seriously, I ask myself this every day. I am so thankful for my life and health. Binky and Winky, Mommy cannot wait to hold you and kiss you! I hear I’ll love you more than I love Daddy. Hahah. I can’t imagine what that love even feels like. I can’t wait to experience it!
Trying my hardest to be good and do weekly belly shot post. I loved hearing Brittany’s updates each week, so I hope she doesn’t mind that I stole this list from her. Thanks Britt!
How Far Along: 16 weeks and 4 days.
Babies Size: I think they are right around 5oz each. According to my chart the radiologist gave us.
Total Weight Gain: 13 lbs. Holy shit. Lord help me. It ain’t gonna be pretty for long, girls.
Maternity Clothes? Yes, these happened at 12 weeks. My jeans just got too tight to sit in all day. Lucky for me, my sister and awesome friend Summer gave me all their maternity clothes! Thank you, ladies!
Stretch Marks? So far, so good. I lube up on the baby oil and lotion like a mad woman.
Sleep: Yes, I would like to do more of it. But gotta make the money for these two.
Best moment this week: Hearing the babies’ heartbeats and realizing Baby B (Binky) was asleep. Hehehe. Binky’s heartbeat was lower than Winky’s which isn’t normal, in their case. When the doctor checked again Binky’s heartbeat was up to par with Winky’s. I just thought that was so cute. I could picture them inside my belly hitting each other, “Wake up!”
Miss Anything? My favorite drink ever, an ice cold fountain soda of Diet Coke with a slice of lemon!
Movement: Not yet. I felt something, but it was probably gas. There’s always lots of that. Doctor said probably around 20 weeks I will feel them.
Food Cravings: Milkshakes, peanuts, bananas, mac and cheese.
Anything making you queasy or sick? The smell of our basement makes me feel ugh. It’s unfinished and just smells musty.
Genders: Not finding out.
Labor Signs: Nope. And let’s keep it that way; we need these babies in the oven for a long time!
Belly button in or out? Still in. But I heard once it does pop out you can really give it a good cleaning. Lol Sounds like that’s something to look forward too, no?
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy I think. But sometimes I can be real B. Especially at or after work. So stressful.
Looking forward to: Feeling the babies move!! Omg! I can’t imagine. I cry about everything so I can’t wait to cry about this! Hehe.
