24 Weeks

Another week down which means another week closer to meeting our princesses.  I can't believe we are at the 24 week mark already.  That means 16 more weeks if this was a singleton pregnancy, but more likely 12 to 14 weeks left.  Time is surely flying.

I already posted a bump picture yesterday, and I won't have any new ones until this weekend because it is getting too dark to take them when I get home and I am being lazy.  But I will try to get another one, even though the Halloween picture is from Saturday night.

How far along: 24 weeks
Babies are the size of a: Cantaloupe/Eggplant
Babies are: The babies are looking more and more like newborn babies.  Their skin is gradually becoming more opaque and their bodies are starting to fill out more as they plump up.  Their brains are growing more rapidly along with their taste buds.  Their lungs are also developing more in preparation of taking their first breath outside of mommy's belly.  All of the baby sites say babies are just over a pound and around 12 inches long, but we know they are already way bigger than that as they measured about that size a couple weeks ago.  Grow babies, grow.
Maternity Clothes: Still a mix of maternity and non-maternity clothes.  But my dress slacks came in the mail and they fit good enough.  They aren't my normal fit, but they will do.
Stretch Marks:So far so good.  I hope I don't get any.
Sleep: Pretty good.  I have been sleeping better since I got adjusted at the chiropractor on Monday.  What a relief that has been.  Now if I could only get my pup on my sleep schedule, we would get more rest.
Symptoms: Backaches, swollen feet and overall exhausted.
Best Moment of the Week:  Going to Apple Hill with my family and family friends.  Even though I overdid it for the week, it was still the best trip.  Apple donuts, apple pie, apples, crafts and family.  I would call that a big win for the week.
Movement: Babies are moving and shaking in there.  They love to kick mommy when she is trying to sleep.  They are growing so big which means I feel the kicks everywhere, but I absolutely love it.
Cravings: Fruit, pizza, ice cream. 

Gender: Two precious baby girls.
Belly Button In or Out: In half way. 

Wedding Ring on or Off: On.
Anything Making You Queasy or Sick: Nothing right now.
What I Miss: Being able to workout, being a busy body and not relying on everyone for everything.  I am such a control freak that this part is been a bit hard for me.  But I was told to enjoy it, so I am trying to let people spoil me.
What I am Looking Forward to: Decorating the nursery even more, finishing the mobiles, going to watch the Wolf Pack this weekend and the Fall storm that is expected this weekend.
Labor Signs: We have some Braxton Hicks contractions going on, but no signs of labor.  Thank the heavens for that.
Nursery: We have painted the room and we are setting up the cribs this weekend (well my husband is and I will just manage the project).
Emotions: This week has been a bit rough as I overdid it in all aspects of life, but I am starting to take it easy, put my feet up and take care of these girls.  Next up, the awful glucose test this Friday or Saturday.  Please oh please let me pass and not have to go to the three hour one.  And please give me some good news as this momma has been a bit scared all week.
