Time for the 16 week survey! I can't believe I am already 16 weeks. This pregnancy is going so fast and so slow all at the same time.
How far along: 16 weeks, 1 days
Total Weight Gain: 12.5 lbs (Eeeek....I am not taking kindly to this whole gaining weight thing.) Although according to twin pregnacny guidelines I haven't gained quite enough yet...1 pound per week for the first 25 weeks and 2 pound thereafter for a total of 40-50lbs. I can't imagine how big I am going to be at the end!
Symptoms: The right side of my rib cage feels like it has been hit by a bat. It is super sore when I am sitting. I think something is just shifting up in there and causing this pain. I won't complain though....it's a sign that my babies are growing and are healthy!
Stretch Marks: Yes: ( One new one on the bottom of my belly. I will wear my battle scars proudly.
Sleep: Wonderful! I am pretty good at this one!
Best Moment Last Week: Feeling the first kick! It was hands down the most amazing experience. It's made this pregnancy seem so much more real!
Movement: Guess I spoiled this one. Yes, I felt the first movement 2 days ago. It was awesome! I have felt a least one kick or flip everyday since. I am really looking forward to feeling them consistently.
Food Cravings: Watermelon. Mmmmmmm. Guess there are worse things to crave.
What I Miss: Nothing this week.
What am I looking forward to: Our anatomy scan this Wednesday!!!
Milestones: Fetal movement is the biggie this week. I am loving every second of this pregnancy.
How is Daddy? Amazing. Everyday I grow more in love with him. The thought of bringing these two beautiful babies into the world together gives me goosebumps!
