Baby, Baby: 15 Week Bumpdate

The Kidlets
How far along?
Today makes 15 weeks!  It sounds like such a small number compared to 40 weeks... but it's really flying by!

Still only about 80% sure, so we're keeping it quiet. :-)

How big are they?
Crown-to-rump length is about 4 inches... about the size of a navel orange, apple, or Hass avocado (whatever that is).  When I was looking at pieces of paper I'd cut for our Christmas cards that had dimensions of 4 inches, I was just... awestruck... that there are TWO babies that big currently living in me.  Pregnancy is crazy stuff!! :-) 

I'm about to pop the buttons on my favorite pajamas!  What will I do!?!?

Changing Momma

Have you started to show yet?
Oh yeah.  Although I wore a hoodie I got at my M.Ed graduation, and you couldn't see my bump.  I was a little sad about it... I don't WANT to camouflage it!

Weight gain?
No new numbers on this, but probably still around where I was last week.

Maternity Clothes?
Yep.  Only my sweatpants and a couple of extra-long tee shirts still fit, out of my pre-pregnancy clothes.  And the sweatpants are getting close. :-/

Stretch Marks?
No new ones!

Belly Button In or Out?
Still in, but shallowing...
Momma's Feeling

Bacon.  Really, any meat.  My meat-loving side has definitely been showing this week!

Anything making you queasy or sick? 
This has been much better lately... I don't think I've taken anti-nausea meds at all this week!!!

Happy or Moody Most of the Time?
A little moody, I guess.  Not bad, I don't think, but a little more... changing. 

YES!  We both felt both of them last night, and it was incredible!  

No complaints!  I wake up achy, but I'm sleeping. :-)

What I Miss:
I've been craving a caffeinated diet Coke pretty badly this week.  I know I *can* have *some* caffeine, and that one can is well below the recommended daily limit, but still... I feel safer avoiding it altogether.  

Other Symptoms: 
Burping.  Sooo much... burping!  Still fatigued, but overall, feeling pretty decent!  Oh, and one other symptom that is pretty neat, but would be beyond TMI for a blog my grandparents may read ;-)
Highlights and Coming Soon

Best Moment of the Week: 
I'd been feeling these little sensations that were not quite cramps, almost more like electrical pulses, and they were usually focused in one area, on one side or the other.  When I pressed my fingers over a twinging spot, I could feel almost a pulsing, fluttering feeling... it was like bubbles rising to my fingers and breaking there.  Like resting your fingers on the surface of slowly, gently bubbling water. I consulted google to confirm my suspicions, and called Ethan over to put his hand on where Baby B was playing.  He could feel the same thing :-)  A little while later, the twinging started on the other side, and I pressed my fingers there... sure enough, same thing.  Again, I called Ethan over and he got to feel our other baby moving, too.  :-)  About that time, Baby B woke back up, and we could put our hands on both babies at the same time and feel the differences in their movements... Baby A was a little calmer, and Baby B was going nuts.  Just like on the ultrasound a couple weeks ago!    

Looking Forward To: 
Really excited for Christmas, of course :-)  Also, our ultrasound on January 5, when we'll confirm the gender suspicions...  and hopefully, soon after, we'll do some kind of fun gender reveal thing here.  :-)  And... looking forward to each and every time I feel these babies move!
