Preggers II -- Twins: 19 Weeks

19 Weeks:

How far along?  19 weeks

How I am feeling?  Well... large.  I feel like my belly gets bigger every single day.

How big are babies?  The size of mangoes... 8.5 ounces and about 6 inches long from head to bottom

Sleep:  Pretty well, but still jumping up to use the restroom throughout the night.  This week, there was one night where I wasn't well-hydrated and so I didn't wake up to use the restroom... instead I awoke with horrible leg cramps throughout the night, which is a sign of dehydration.  So, waking up to use the restroom is not so bad.

Boy/Girl, Boy/Boy, Girl/Girl Predictions:  Not really anything yet

Babies Nicknames:  Babies, Twins, or Peanuts... because two peanuts come in one shell
Weight Gain/Loss:  I've finally gained a few pounds -- about three

Best moment this week:  It was really fun to go to the Michigan game and have a night away with Hubby.
Food cravings:  Nothing really in particularly

Missing:  The ability to lean down into Tracey Ann's crib without my belly getting in my way
Movements:  Yes, and Hubby can now feel them

Labor Signs:  No, thankfully.
Comparison:  Here I am carrying Tracey Ann at 19 weeks:

And here I am with the twins at 19 weeks:

And here I am in a side-by-side comparison with the same outfit:

General Attitude:  I was pretty emotional this past week... Hubby and I had a lot to do and a lot of decisions to make, and they would have been emotional for me anyways... but with a double pregnancy going on, I was incredibly emotional all week.

 What I am looking forward to this week:  Hubby and I have the 20 week ultrasound this week, and I don't know that I am really excited, but I am a little nervous to make sure we don't find out the gender.  I will be glad when that appointment is over and the genders are still surprises.

Milestones:  Hubby feeling the babies move!
