Baby, Baby: 17 Week Bumpdate

The Kidlets
How far along?
17 weeks

We'll know for sure in two more days :-)

How big are they?
They each should weigh about as much as a turnip?  About five inches long, and weighing about five to six ounces. One other source compared them to onions, and another said pomegranates.  
Changing Momma
Had a hot date with my hot husband last night - we saw "Unbroken" as part of his Christmas present :-) Not my usual kind of movie, but I still really enjoyed it! 
Have you started to show yet?
Yeah... you could say that :-)

Weight gain?
I got weighed this week... I think I'm up about two pounds since last time, so about 12 pounds total?

Maternity Clothes?
Yeah, and a lot of nightgowns :-)

Stretch Marks?
No new ones :-)

Belly Button In or Out?
Soooo shallow.
Momma's Feeling

Nothing really all that noteworthy this week, I don't think...

Anything making you queasy or sick?
My burps are occasionally productive, but I'm not all that nauseated.

Happy or Moody Most of the Time?
Peaceful and content...

I can still mostly only feel them with my hands. 

My CGM has kept me awake quite a bit, but other than that, I'm sleeping fine...

What I Miss:
Hot baths, caffeine. 

Other Symptoms:
Burping like craaaazy, and the round ligament pain has gotten pretty unpleasant.  I went to the doctor for it this week, because I'd read that the pains are supposed to only last a few minutes at most, and mine had been going for most of the day.  The doctor ordered an ultrasound to check my cervix, and everything looks perfect, so we're confident that it's just some really nasty round ligament pain.  He said that with twins, stuff like that is amplified. So... yay. ;-)

Highlights and Coming Soon

Best Moment of the Week:
Finding out everything was okay with those pains!!   Also, yesterday was the first time a stranger asked me about my pregnancy, so that was pretty thrilling!!  She seemed absolutely devastated for me when I told her I was having twins, which was pretty hilarious.  I assured her we were really happy and excited :-)  And one more honorable mention: I got a1c results back, and it's 5.1 - EVEN LOWER than "prediabetic" levels.  By FAR the lowest mine has ever been, and I'm so proud!  It's been a lot of hard work, but it will be well worth it for healthy babies!

Looking Forward To: 
Gender confirmation on Monday!!
