24 weeks

How Far Along: 24 weeks
How Big are the Babies? They are each the size of a cantaloupe.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm up 18lbs since retrieval. My doctor has not said a single word about my weight gain, so I'm just assuming I'm on track. 
Maternity Clothes: Yep, and I may need to buy a few more things.
Movement: They are moving a lot and those four little feet LOVE the right side of my rib cage!
Belly button in or out? It gets a little more shallow with each passing day!
What I miss: Sleeping well at night. 
Milestones: VIABILITY!!!! I don't want to see these boys on the outside of my body anytime soon, but it does make me feel so much better to have reached this point. I feel like time is going to fly from here on out!
Food Cravings:  Melon, chocolate milk and cereal.
Aversions: Eggs..... still grossing me out.
Symptoms:  Exhaustion, very tightly stretched sore belly skin, leg cramps, lots of soreness, ligament pain and the return of  the horrible heartburn.
Best Moment this week: Seeing the boys again, feeling a lot of movement, and finishing one crib skirt.

Funny Moment: I can't think of anything specific, but I always think it is funny when their big kicks catch me off guard and cause me to jump.
Tip of the Week: Back to the water... I feel SO much better when I drink enough to fill a kiddie pool in a day. It means a lot of bathroom trips, but it is worth it. 
What I'm looking forward to: Our baby shower- a week from this Saturday!!
