Baby, Baby: 18 Week Bumpdate (and GENDER REVEAL)

The Kidlets


How far along?
18 weeks today!  I am halfway to a good, safe goal of full term for twins.  If I make it to 36 weeks, all should be totally developed and healthy :-)  

Oh, yeah... I was going to announce that today, wasn't I...? 

How big are they?
At our appointment on Monday, each weighed 7oz!  They should be about 5-6 inches long, or about the length of a bell pepper or sweet potato. :-)

Changing Momma

Have you started to show yet?
Pshyeah.  I'm pretty sure I had a growth spurt yesterday, s'matter of fact!

Weight gain?
I gained a pound since the last appointment... I'm thinking 13 pounds total?  Somewhere around in there. 

Maternity Clothes?
Yeah... and I'm pretty sure I just pulled my beloved pre-pregnancy sweatpants for the last time.  

Stretch Marks?
No new ones... 

Belly Button In or Out?
Super-shallow, but in...

Momma's Feeling

All the food.

Anything making you queasy or sick?
Smells... but mostly smells that would nauseate non-pregnant people too.  Like dog poo. ;-)

Happy or Moody Most of the Time?
I mood swung like it was my JOB this week!

About the same as it has been... the ultrasound tech was impressed with how wiggly both babies are, though!

Could be worse!

What I Miss:
Caffeine and hot baths... I'm not getting over these two things ;-)

Other Symptoms:
The burping won't quit!!

Highlights and Coming Soon

Best Moment of the Week:
Ultrasound!!!  I love seeing my babies wiggle, and I love cooing over their tiny details... the perfect hearts, the tiny hands, the bones (femur, humerus) that are totally identifiable as perfectly formed miniatures of the ones on the skeletons in A&P class... oh!  The adorableness!!  We also had a wonderful, cozy time at Ethan's Granny's house last night with most of that side of the family.  We showed them the ultrasound video and cut a gender reveal cake.  We have a pretty great family! Speaking of great family... here's who we're going to be adding to it in the next several months... 

Baby A: our daughter, Baby B: our son.  Ohmygosh, we have a daugher and a son y'all!

Looking Forward To: 
Talking about baby names... decorating the nursery... all the stuff that comes next, I guess <3
