25 weeks

How Far Along: 25 weeks
How Big are the Babies? They are each the size of a head of cauliflower. Each should be somewhere around 2 lbs. 
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I'm up 19lbs since retrieval, that is one pound for this week.
Maternity Clothes: Anytime I leave the house I'm wearing maternity. 
Movement: Lots of it! My nurse was talking about kick counts at my last appointment and while it isn't totally necessary to be doing them at this point, I've found myself counting a couple times a day right after meals. The general rule is 10 kicks/movements in two hours. I typically get ten in less than ten minutes. 
Belly button in or out? It is still in and feeling SO weird!
What I miss: Sleeping well at night. 
Milestones: Surpassing viability. I was always afraid I'd wait and wait to get to 24 weeks and then I would get there and everything would come crashing down- so far so good!
Food Cravings:  Garlic bread, cake- healthy, right?
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: Best and worst get mixed together this week... Over the weekend we sat out on the deck and washed a ton of toys and baby gear that we got second hand from various sources. It was fun to get everything all cleaned up for the boys until we realized that THIS is the year after a lifetime in the PNW that my body decided seasonal allergies would be fun. 

Funny Moment: Nothing this week.
Tip of the Week: Listen to your body. If your body tells you to rest, DO IT. 
What I'm looking forward to: Our baby shower this weekend!

I'll try to remember to take a new picture today and either add it onto this post, or post it tomorrow!
