20 Weeks

(How are you supposed to take a good selfie? Where do your arms go?)

How far along? 20 weeks, babies are the size of bananas. Actually, mine are a little bigger. They're measuring a couple weeks ahead of schedule.

Total weight gain/loss: I'm at 124

Maternity clothes? Mostly, but still wearing a few normal pieces 

Stretch marks? Nope

Sleep: I've got like a nest of pillows that have to be placed around me just right, and then I'm pretty comfortable.

Best moment this week: Last week we had the anatomy scan. It's always fun to watch them moving around. I was surprised by how big they are and how cramped they are already. They each stretch all the way across my body (one on top of the other) and one is always right under my ribs.

Movement: All. The. Time. Especially when I'm trying to sleep.

Food cravings: All the carbs!

Anything making you queasy or sick: I'm staying away from eggs because they make feel gross

Have you started to show yet: Definitely. I wake up every mo…

18 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss: I'm at 122 now, so we're trucking along I guess

Maternity clothes? Yeppers. stretchy pants all the way. Although I still wear my normal shirts, and they make me look less pregnant.

Stretch marks? Nope

Sleep: Is the worst. I was up from 1-4 last night trying to get comfortable. I even bought one of those giant pillows that wraps all the way around you, but it was too firm. I've got a princess and the pea situation going on. 

Best moment this week: Clayton can now feel them kicking too

Movement: Every day

Food cravings: Anything salty. And carbs.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I'll probably never eat Panda Express again.

Have you started to show yet: Yes. There is no hiding it anymore.

Gender: They're both girls! We are thrilled!

Belly Button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On, unless I'm working out.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Pretty happy all the time. I've had a real…
