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.....
