28 weeks

How far along? 28 weeks, babies are the size of eggplants. At the ultrasound this week baby a was measuring 2 lb. 11 oz, and baby b was 2 lb. 8 oz. Which means that these bebes are huge! The average 28 week old fetus is 2 lbs.

Total weight gain/loss: 24 lbs. The belly just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Stretch marks? No

Sleep: I am up multiple times every night either because I have to go to the bathroom or because I'm hungry. Clayton will find me downstairs making breakfast at 5 am. And once I'm up and eating breakfast there is no going back to sleep.

26 weeks

How far along? 26 weeks, babies are the size of scallions? Whatever that means.

Total weight gain/loss: 20 lbs. Only 17 to go to hit the goal at the the end.

Stretch marks? No

Best moment this week: The babies have started to get hiccups. I didn't know even know they could do that yet!

Food cravings: I'm always in the mood for smoothies and pizza.

Anything making you queasy or sick: I just avoid all the things that have made me feel queasy in the past

Gender: Fraternal girls

Belly Button in or out? still half way out

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody most of the time: I had a really strange experience just today. I felt like I was on the verge of tears for no reason most of the morning. If you know me you know that I never cry, it's just not how I cope. As I was getting ready for the gym to go swimming I couldn't find a…
