How far along: 15 weeks 1 day
Baby size: Navel oranges
Total weight gain: about 8 lbs
Sleep: Sleep has gotten better this week, although sometimes I'm woken in the night with round ligament pain (and least I think that's what it is). I'm finally sleeping through the night without peeing! I'm a stomach sleeper, but that's no longer comfortable... now I'm sleeping on my back, but I know that can't last too much longer!
Movement: I cannot wait to feel them! I'm hoping I feel them sooner rather than later... but definitely not for at least 3 more weeks.
Food cravings/aversions: Bagels... but I think they're more a vehicle for the plain cream cheese that I'm loving! Still loving apples. Drinking lots of tea. I've said goodbye to anything fried for now because of my reflux.
Pregnancy Symptoms: Acid reflux... which causes stomachaches. (I've started Zantac for that, which is helping!) Round ligament pain. Exhaustion. Breathlessness.
What I miss: Nothing!
What I'm looking forward to: Our ultrasound on November 22nd! We'll find out their genders :)
Milestones: Baby A kicked during our last appointment when Dr. Hollar was listening to his/her heartbeat with the Doppler! I didn't feel it, but you could hear this big "thud". So cute. Also, they can hear and discern voices somewhat. I read that there was a research study done in Australia... women who watched the soap opera Neighbours while pregnant, their babies calmed down and focused when the show's theme song played after they were born. So, Andy and I are trying to decide on a worship song that we want to play to my belly every night--in hopes that this can be the twins' "calm down" song when they out of the womb! So fun.
Best moment this week: Last weekend I slept in a lot. That was great :)
