Babies are as long as a carrot. They are about three quarters of a pound and 10 1/2 inches long. Movements are starting to be more kick like. They will start jabbing me before I know it.
How far along? 21 weeks
Weight Gain? I am not sure this week. I have another doctors appointment on Monday and I will find out.
Workouts? After everything that has been going on this week, workouts are definitely not on the agenda.
Symptoms? Acid reflux like crazy.
Stretch Marks? None yet. But I am trying to prepare myself that it might happen; I am carrying two babies. 🙂
Sleep? I still hate sleeping. I am uncomfortable and will wake up for a few hours a night.
Movement? Baby B moves a lot and I am starting to feel Baby A a lot more lately. Hopefully, this means she is doing better in there.
Genders? Two little girls.
What I miss: I miss exercising, I miss being active in general. I miss wearing my normal clothes and not worrying about these two little ones inside of me. I am ready to be 36 weeks and have to healthy little girls. 🙂
Labor signs? Contractions and cramping. I have to say all this bed rest these past few days have really lessened the contractions and the cramping has completely gone away. This week has shown us I really need to take it easy. No more busy weekends for awhile.
Belly button in or out? It is slowly starting to pop out.
What I am looking forward to this week? Our ultrasound today, Thursday. I can’t wait to see our girls. With the holiday weekend we had to schedule this ultrasound ten days out instead of seven like usual. I am also looking forward to doing nothing this week.
Random Thoughts from this Past Week:
- Bed rest is the worst, but I will do anything to keep these twins in there are long as possible.
- Once my mom goes back to work after this week off I need to take it easy with girls. No cleaning!!!
- I have learned over these past few days that resting and drinking even more water really does help lessen the contractions and pain. I have felt so much better while on these rest days.
- We are coming close to naming these to precious girls. We have decided we want their names to begin with the same letter.
