17 week Pregnancy Update!

It's been about 4 weeks since I did one of these,
 so I figured you all are due for some updates!

How far along are you? 
I am 17 1/2 weeks.

Total weight gain? 
I am still down 1o pounds since the start of pregnancy. I'm not worried. I'm sure I will gain it back and then some lots by the time the babies are here.

How big are the babies? 
The babies weigh around 5 ounces and are each the size of a turnip now.

Maternity clothes? 
Again, it depends on the day and outfit. In this picture above I am in a regular Gap top and maternity shorts.  

Stretch marks?
 Not yet. 

 I'm still very, very tired. And not sleeping all that great. I spend a lot of time flipping sides and trying to get comfortable. Oh. And I have a 3 year old who is still in his first week of having a big-boy bed.... so that is affecting sleep a lot. No, Reagan , 2:30, 3:30, 4:30 in the morning are NOT acceptable times to wake up.

Best moment of this week?
A tie. This moment and the movement below.
I was in pretty rough shape after my first grade field trip last week.  Reagan was sooo attentive and spoiled me rotten. "This make you feel better Mama?" 
Melts my heart.

Yes! This past week we've really started to feel the babies move at night.  Reagan, Nick and I felt them the first night and we just giggled. Reagan was pretty upset. "Why those babies kick my Mama?" I had to explain that they weren't hurting me and that he did it too. 

Food cravings?
I've been craving Jamba Juice lately like no other. 

Food aversions?
Nope! I'm pretty sure (please Lord) the sickness is all done. 
I've been 2 weeks sickness free. 

Labor signs?

Belly button in or out?
Still in.

What I miss?
I miss sitting without a pillow. I have an extremely pointy tail bone (tmi?) and pretty much no butt. So I've always had tailbone issues. And boy has it reared it's ugly head this pregnancy.  I carry my special butt pillow with me everywhere. Awesome.

What I'm looking forward to?
Next Weds. we go to the special multiples Dr. for our comprehensive exam.  We will find out the genders then but are keeping it a secret until the weekend.  My sister is throwing us a Gender Reveal Party when we will get to share it with Reagan and the family. I'm excited!! Any guesses or predictions?

Just stoppying by! I am working on 28 weeks! Don't worry one bit about the weight gain. I have gained 16lbs now, but it has all really been since about week 20. I was SOOOOO sick. I hated food. Now that they are really gaining weight, I literally can't keep up. I'm really glad that you have been 2 weeks sickness free! It's amazing how fast your belly pops out starting around 20 weeks too!
