8 weeks

How Far Along: 8 weeks
How Big is Baby? The size of a raspberry... again with my smoothie fruits!
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Down about 7 pounds. 
Maternity Clothes: I broke down. Though there is no belly to speak of yet, there is some pretty uncomfortable bloat still hanging around. That, added to the knowledge that there are TWO growing babes in there that will likely be making an appearance sooner rather than later, I bought one pair of maternity jeans over the weekend. Um, jeans with a super soft stretchy waistband in the front.... yes please!
Gender: I can't wait to find out!
Movement: It is going to be awhile!
Sleep: I've been sleeping better and better as I learn what positions work best for me. I'm still tired pretty much every afternoon, but I don't always require a nap to make it through the day which is a nice change!
Belly button in or out? In.
What I miss: Maybe food sounding good, but I wouldn't trade these babes for ANYTHING!
Milestones: Hearing both heart beats and finding out baby B had a big growth spurt this week and has caught up with his/her brother or sister!
Food Cravings:  Nothing big this week that I can remember- maybe grapes and frozen juice pops. 
Aversions: Eggs are still a big 'no thank you!'
Symptoms: Nausea seems to hit the most when I'm getting hungry, otherwise I'm feeling pretty good. I'm still pretty tired a lot of the time and my nipples are still incredibly tender.
Best Moment this week: Hearing two strong heartbeats and getting to have another look at our little babes!
What I'm looking forward to: Sharing the news with a few more close friends/family over the weekend.
