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!?!?|
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!
No new numbers on this, but probably still around where I was last week.
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. :-/
No new ones!
Belly Button In or Out?
Still in, but shallowing...
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.
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!
