How Far Along: 21 weeks Size of babies: 8 in. 1 lbs. (They are already so cramped, I can't even begin to imagine when they are closer to full term)
Maternity Clothes: Half and half still. It's going to be hard to put away the maternity jeans after...they are so comfortable! Haha
Gender: Two girls
Movement: Yes, all the time. I felt them like crazy during church Sunday, I guess the music got them going. The ultrasound tech asked if I drank coffee before my appointment because they were moving so much. I hadn't...
Sleep: Off and on. I get comfortable for a little bit, then something happens like my arm falls asleep or my hip hurts...
Symptoms: I really feel pretty great except for some occasional nerve pain.
What I miss: Crossfit workouts I can do fully. Fitting into clothes. Pre-pregnancy clear skin
Cravings: Everything that contains Gluten, that I can't eat!
Best Moment this week: One has to do with our current "babies"(dogs), and the other our real "babies."
1. Our dogs somehow pushed our fence open last week in the morning and started enjoy a day roaming through the neighborhood. Thankfully during the day there are so many workers in yards and people out that a sweet lady got Bula (our friend to everyone dog), and took her to the vet. We looked from about 10 am until 7 pm for Lily (our shy, scared of all things strange dog.) I was mad that my husband had somehow converted me to a dog person. I also thought people were crazy when they would be upset after losing a dog....now i get it! We were extremely worried that she had just run off to hide somewhere. Thankfully we found her running down the middle of our street...huge tongue hanging out and all...relief!
2. The "big" ultrasound finding out the gender and confirming all things look good with the babies! The ultrasound took 2 hours...at one point I had to have her stop because I thought I was about to pass out, or throw up...the last 20 minutes were not as enjoyable...ha
What I am looking forward to: Deciding on names!
