A big congrats to Tyler, Dean, Alex, Kristine, Rachel, Todd and my subconscious for guessing the correct gender combo for the Nitsy Twins. That's right kids, we found out at our detailed ultrasound today that Twin A is a boy, and Twin B is... another boy! Sorry LC, we're all snips and snails and puppy dog tails over here. It did not come as a huge shock to me as I had a dream very early on in my pregnancy when I first knew about the twins that they were both boys. I was hoping for one girl, but I guess I'll have to try again for my girl.
Both babies are developing well, and still have healthy heartbeats and growth. Twin A weighs 13 oz, and Twin B weighs 14oz. For those keeping tabs, my cervix is still long and strong.
I also took the dreaded gestational diabetes test this last week... and failed. So I have to go in for a more extensive 3 hour test. Yuck!
In other fun news, I joined a podcast called Pregtastic. It's an online radio show where pregnant moms from the area get together to discuss different pregnancy topics. I have recorded 3 episodes so far, and the first came out today! If you're interested, check it out here: http://www.pregtastic.com/category/podcasts/ or just search for "pregtastic" on itunes.
How Far Along? 20.5 weeks - over half way there!
Maternity Clothes? I still fit in a few of my larger regular shirts and stretchy pants, but I'm wearing mainly maternity clothes now.
Weight Gain? 12-ish pounds, but I haven't been weighed at the doctor in a few weeks.
Stretch Marks? Oh yes. Though I think they might have been there pre-pregnancy... but I'll just go ahead and blame the twins from here on out.
Feeling Movement? Only a few times each day, but we saw that both twins were quite active during their ultrasound.
Sleep? I am sleeping 9-10 hours per night. I discovered the wonders of the body pillow, and now I'm loving my sleep again.
Belly Button In or Out? Still in. I have a belly button aversion, so we'll see how I feel if/when it pops out.
Cravings? Hotdogs and rootbeer. Weird, right?
Best Moment of the Week? Finally learning the genders of my little guys!
What I Miss? Sushi! Also, walking and taking stairs comfortably. I feel mildly disabled.
What I Love? Looking at baby clothes. Deciding on nursery decor. Feeling the babies move.
What I'm Looking Forward To? Reaching 24 weeks (viability).
Milestones? Over half way there!!!
Other Thoughts? Nick and I both feel so blessed to have such a mild and healthy pregnancy so far. Keep growing babies!
Lots of love to you all!
