20 Weeks!

Excuse the extremely fancy outfit. Hudson and I were headed out to the store for a few quick things.
Well, for a "typical" pregnancy this would be the halfway mark. For me, carrying two, however, I probably hit that point 2-3 weeks ago. Wowza!!

How Far Along? 20 Weeks.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I was up 12 lbs at my 17 week appointment. My scale at home has been dead so I haven't been able to weigh myself in a while.  

Genders: BOY AND A GIRL!!! Grayson Wells and Raegan Elise!

Maternity Clothes? Pretty much all pants. I wore some normal pants the other day with the BeBand and was not at all comfortable. I just had to wear my white skinnies, though. The length of some of my shirts is already posing a problem so I layer or wear the longer ones.

Stretch Marks? No. I didn't get any with Hudson, so here's to hoping I have the same luck this time around.

Sleep: Eh. It's OK. I'm pretty much confined to side-sleeping now so I do a lot of flip-flopping from one side to the other.

Movement: Yes. No hard jabs or punches yet, but they'll come. :) For now, it's just rolls and subtle kicks. I'm slowly starting to feel them from the outside with my hand too. 

Food Cravings: I still haven't gotten that jumbo soft pretzel. I crave some sweet things and some salty things. Just depends.

Food Aversions: Aversions are pretty much gone now, thank goodness. If I get a whiff of something less than appetizing in the morning, that'll get me though. 

Labor Signs: No!

Symptoms: A little smell aversion, sciatic nerve pain and some head/backaches. Oh and don't forget the potty breaks every half hour. ;-)

Belly Button In or Out? In.

Wedding Rings On or Off? On

Miss Anything? Not really. A little more energy would be nice. :)

Best Moment This Week: A great Mother's Day weekend with my sweet boys and the amazing mothers in our lives. 

Looking Forward To: Just continuing to have a healthy, easy pregnancy. Wanting to get through our anatomy scan next week to know the babies both look 100% perfect and healthy!


And just for comparison's sake, here I am at 20 weeks with Hudson and 20 weeks with the twins.
Not too TOO much bigger but still....yikes!!
