24 Weeks!

How far along? 24 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: +18.5 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Yes...I got some hand me downs this week from some friends!

Stretch marks? Not yet

Sleep: It's ok...the rib pain is getting worse.  It reminds me a lot of the pain after having a lap done....when the air is trying to escape and it feels like someone is stabbing you!

Best moment this week: Hitting 24 weeks and knowing that everything is going great!

Movement: Yes!  They are getting stronger and more active!

Food cravings: Not really craving anything...I just like food!:)

Gender: Two Girls!!!  With really cute little names;)

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

Belly Button in or out? It's starting to poke out

What I am looking forward to: 28 weeks!  My first goal!  Although I think they are staying in for the long haul, which is great!

Weekly Wisdom: Surrender all your fears to God

Milestones: Viability, but I'll feel much better when we hit 28 weeks.

We got to see the girls yesterday!  It is getting harder to really see them on ultrasound because they are getting so big!  Baby A was 1 lb 12 oz. and Baby B was 1 lb. 8 oz.  We didn't really get any good pictures.  The lady doing the ultrasound doesn't seem to want to try to hard to get us some cute pics...just to get the measurements.  They also had me laying on my back and that didn't last very long until I almost passed out, so I had to lay on my side and it was harder for her to get to things.  They are still transverse though and kicking each other in the head!  As of now I am going to the Dr. every two weeks with US's every 4 weeks.  I get to do the Glucose Tolerance Test in 4 weeks. Yuck!  It makes my tummy hurt just thinking about that stuff I have to drink.

We are trying to get started on the nursery, so we went to b.abies r us last night to get some stuff we were wanting and Rob starts spotting bedding he likes better than what we already picked out.  Then I got on board with him.  So now we have to pack up the bedding we already bought and take it back and also we noticed that someone already bought our 2nd bedding and the accessories.  We knew it had to be one of our moms...turns out they went together and bought it. So now we need to get that and take it back so we can switch.  Rob is such a trouble maker!  I am glad he is the one who changed his mind this time and not me, though!:)

This is the new bedding.  It looks better in person.  It is just brighter and has more colors that we can work with.

I can't thinking of anything else right now, but I'll try to post a pic tonight!

I am glad all is going well and I hope they stay put for quite awhile!!

I love the bedding it is so cute and fun!!!

I remember when the girls got to big to both be seen entirely in the ultrasound. It was fun however to see 3 arms or when they had their heads together (they still do that when they are getting into mischief) so much more things to come and you look GREAT!!!
