16 Weeks

How Far Along: 16 weeks today...going into my 5th month...crazy!

Size of Baby: both babies are the size of an avocado ...4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces

Picture: I know yall have been asking for belly shot, my husband is out of town so sorry for the poor cell phone quality!

Weight Gain: still down from starter weight, currently I have lost 7 pounds.

Belly: belly is taking form, still just feel fat some days

Stretch Marks: no new ones

Sleep: SUCKS! I can not get comfortable and I wake up with my belly so sore in the morning

Milestones: both babies passed their nuchal test and they passed the down syndrome test...yeah!

Movement: feeling flutters

Symptoms: nausea has gotten better, just kinda comes and goes now. I am getting more tired and out of breath

Food Cravings: peach milkshake from Chickfila

Gender: 7 more days....cant wait!

What I'm Looking Forward to: feeling the movement and knowing sex

Doctor APT: I had been having slight discharge and same cramping, I was scared because I had just taken the long trip to and from Illinois. She did u/s and both babies hearts were 145 BPM which is normal and they were growing fine. She did culture to find out I have bacterial vaginosis which I guess is common in pregnant women due to hormones but you have to catch it or can cause preterm labor. I am on medicine for a week and then its suppose to be gone but may come back. yeah for me.....

At least they caught it and can treat it!

It's so crazy to me to follow along with your journey and think WOW, that would've been me if I was having twins!
