21 weeks 2 days

How far along? 21 weeks 2 days 21 weeks 2 days!

Total weight gain/loss: I'm going to round up to a good even 20. I think it's a little less, but it fluctuates so much that it's not even worth trying to be accurate! I think it's around 15, but I'm not sure. And I don't really even care.

Maternity clothes? Always Always, but I have to figure that out soon because I'm being left with huge red lines on my belly from my pants...

Stretch marks? Still none. Which freaks me out a little... do certain people just not get stretch marks? The same 3 or 4 I mentioned before.

Sleep: The past two nights have been the best sleep in forever and I don't know why. Not the greatest. I don't get enough, Colby wakes me up a lot, I toss and turn alot (and usually wake up because I'm on my back and can't properly breathe), and waking up is excruciating torture because it hurts so much to first walk out of bed. BUT, WORTH IT. :)

Best moment this week: Last night when Johnny felt one of the babies kick for the first time! The look on his face was priceless!! Just the fact that the babies are still growing well and we're still here.

Movement: Yes! Yes! Yes! :) LOVE it. I was up til midnight last night just keeping my hand on my stomach feeling the babies play! Yes! I have one anterior placenta and one posterior placenta so sometimes it can be a bit harder to feel the movement, but I'm feeling a lot lower down near where my incision was as well as up in the very top, middle of my belly. Occasionally there are other kicks, but not as often. Most active times are around 4pm and 10pm.

Food cravings: Mashed potatoes! Ice cream and baked potatoes. Baked potato ice cream? :)

Gender: 2 boys 2 girls...

Labor Signs: Nope No

Belly Button in or out? It's not fully out, but it's out enough that you can see it through my clothes. Mostly out, but I think it freaks Colby out a little because any time I show him my belly he sticks his finger in my belly button and pushes as much as he can to get it to go back in.

What I miss: Nothing! Nothing

What I am looking forward to: More kicks! More kicks! :) And of course when these guys arrive! Kicks, finding a new high risk doctor, making it to 28 weeks...

Weekly Wisdom: I've got nothing! If your doctor is a dunce, find a new one! :)

Milestones: Johnny feeling that baby kick! :) Ahhh, bliss.
Nothing really new this week...

I don't know how you do it all! I barely get enough sleep and I have no toddler - and I'm cookin' only one baby! Bless your heart, you've gotta be worn out!
