twinpack: 26 weeks


How far along? 26 weeks (compare to 26 weeks with my son here)

Maternity clothes? yes

Stretch marks? no

Sleep: some nights it's decent, some nights it's not.

Best moment this week: realizing we have a long weekend! :)

Miss anything? not intensely

Movement: yes, and you can definitely see it from the outside. 

Food cravings: still similar to my last pregnancy, when i see or hear about something and it sounds really delicious, i have to get it soon because i can't stop thinking about it. this week it was haagen dazs strawberry ice cream. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: smells. and some of their BIG movements make me a little queasy, which should make the next few months fun ;) 

Genders: a boy and a girl!  

Labor signs: none

Symptoms: pains, being uncomfortable basically all the time

Differences at this point between your singleton pregnancy and twin pregnancy: physical discomfort and getting tired easily

Belly button in or out? flat 

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: depends on who you ask ;) 

Blood sugar: holding pretty steady!

Looking forward to: getting the nursery put together, keeping these babies cooking until mid august no matter how whiny and uncomfortable i am.

Bitch of the week: to the dude cashier at hobby lobby when we were doing work errands, "i'm sorry" is a stupid response when you ask someone what they're having and they tell you a boy and a girl.
