20 weeks!

We had our 20 week US and appt today.  It went great!  The babies are healthy and doing awesome!  They both weigh approx. 12 ounces!!  Such big girls;)!  Everything is going great!  I am starting to have some aches and pains but nothing I can't handle right now.  Rob and I have been working on naming our little princesses and are narrowing it down, but per Rob's request we aren't telling the names until they are born.  I am always so impatient when people do this, but it is kinda fun to have something to announce the day they arrive!:)  Praise God for blessing us with healthy babies and a healthy pregnancy so far!  We are so thankful!!

you can't tell very well in this pic but my innie is almost no longer an innie;)

How far along? 20 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: + ~10lbs (since I am halfway through the pregnancy this means that I should only gain about 20lbs, right?!?....I know that isn't quite how it OB said it would probably be around 50!!  Yikes!)

Maternity clothes? Yes...a couple of my shirts are already getting a little short!

Stretch marks? Not yet

Sleep: It's ok...I've been having a lot of back pain lately.  I went to a chiropractor who works specifically with pregnant women, today and got adjusted.  She said my pelvis was very "off".  One leg was shorter than the other because of it...No wonder it hurt!:)

Best moment this week: Getting to see our babies again and seeing their perfect little bodies that God created!  Praise God they are healthy and doing great!  (and so is my cervix!)

Movement: Yes, for sure!!  It is mainly just little tickles but it is starting to feel a little different.  Baby B is laying transverse..... up practically in my rib cage so when I am sitting I can feel her telling me to stop squishing her;).

Food cravings: No real cravings right now

Gender: Two Girls!!!  

Labor Signs: No! And there better not be for a long time!  Hoping for 38 weeks!:)

Belly Button in or out? Just barely is getting pretty flat

What I am looking forward to: Seeing the girls again on my birthday!  My 24 week US is that day!:)

Weekly Wisdom: Just Trust God and don't worry!  Give it all to Him!

Milestones: We're over half way there!!

P.S.  My sister is pregnant too!  She is 8 weeks behind me!  It is so exciting!  We always hoped our kids would be close in age!!  I can't wait to find out what she is having!

Wow, I can't believe that you're 20 weeks already! Crazy! Lol, yeah umm... I gained 53 lbs in my pregnancy and that was with only 1 child. I really liked to eat.

That's so awesome that you get to be pregnant with your sister. What a blessing! My nephew (from my SIL) is only 6 weeks older than my son, but it would have been even cooler to be pregnant at the same time as my sister.
