I'll never...

People always say, "never say never." Yet for some reason we all still do it. I've already begun to "break" some of my past "I'll never" statements. (I know this is only the beginning since parenthood is just around the corner.)

1) "I'll never post a picture of a sonogram on the internet." However,  it becomes just so amazing to watch their growth, and maybe a little creepy at times too! ha

2) "I'll never complete one of these"...But then it becomes a way to track your growth for "memories." 

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 19.5 Weeks
Size of babies: 6.5 in, 10 oz. 
Maternity Clothes: Bought a pair of maternity's heavenly! Clothes fit awkwardly right now, some show off the belly, some are too short, some make me look like a tent. It's rough...and I've got a long way to go! ;) 
Gender: Find out officially on the 25th
Movement: Yes! They were both breech at the last appointment, and I have a feeling they haven't rotated much. Every kick and jab is low, but still pretty faint. 
Sleep: Pregnancy does prepare you for parenthood some. My summer days of sleeping soundly and comfortably are already over. I was a stomach/right side sleeper before, so I can't ever seem to get comfortable! 
Symptoms: More recently I feel full ALL the time and have some heartburn. Also I can't tell if I pulled by back working out or if its ligament pain. Not fun! 
What I miss: I'll try to make this list slim! ;) Clothes fitting. Feeling like I can breath! Being able  to eat a meal with feeling stuffed after 3 bites! Doing a Crossfit workout all out. 
Cravings: If these babies don't one day beg for Sour Patch Kids I will be shocked! ;) 
Best Moment this week: Being reminded how faithful God is, and how blessed we are! 
What I am looking forward to: Finding out the genders of the twins! Praying they will be able to determine there are two placentas instead of one at the next appointment. 

3) I'll never put up a picture of my "baby bump." I know this day is coming...but not today! Maybe if my friend Michelle encourages me enough I'll succumb to the pressure! :)
