17 Weeks Pregnancy Update

17 Weeks Pregnant Twins

How far along? 17 weeks

Size of Babies: The size of onions!

Total weight gain/loss: -10, +8!

Symptoms: Fatigue. Some nausea though I do think it only really affected me two different mornings… so maybe it IS getting better? Back and hip pain. Food aversions. Nose bleeds along with a runny nose on and off most days. Indigestion. Fun stuff!

Maternity clothes? All day, baby.

Stretch marks? None from the pregnancy. :)Waking up a bit more during the night, but still taking the Unisom… therefore I sleep mostly great!

Best moment this week: Feeling some movement! Then today I felt a definite sharper kicking feeling, too!! I love it! Remind me of this in about 2 months when I have 2 soccer players in my ribs. :)

Miss Anything? All the wine.

Movement: Started feeling a little bit a few days ago. Then I was able to pick up on it more yesterday and today. Pretty amazing!

Food cravings: Fruit.  Water (if that is considered a food). Iced tea.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Meat. Still. Mexican food.

Have you started to show yet: Yep, though most people don’t believe I’m 17 weeks preggo with twins!

Gender prediction: Crossing my fingers for a boy and girl!

Labor Signs: Nada.

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Kinda sad this week.

Looking forward to: Finding out the genders next Tuesday!!

I have still been pretty busy with work… which is good in some ways because I just want to save up as much money as possible before the twins get here, but I feel bad for my husband. I am pretty worn out by the time I get home.  Forget cleaning my house or doing anything constructive!

Countdown to December 10th!!! That is our next appointment with our perinatologist, and our next ultrasound.  So excited!
