Grim Twins – Weeks 21-22

How far along? 21-22 Weeks Pregnant
Total weight gain: 13.5 pounds…goodness i’m getting huge! LoL  It’s a little scary, but as long as they’re healthy that’s all that matters:)
Maternity clothes? Exclusively (other than Daddy’s shirts ;0)
Stretch marks? A few small ones
Sleep: My neck has finally started to heal, so sleep is becoming MUCH easier.  I’m soooo thankful! The usual: About 8 hours a night and fewer interruptions.
Best moment this week: We got the call from our genetic counselor that both of our babies are perfectly healthy!!!  We did a DNA test called MaterniT21 and it came back as 99% chance of them being completely healthy!!!  My regular OB/GYN also calmed our nerves a lot more and let us know that the MFM docs always have to find something, but it’s nothing to be worried about.  We’re still going to monitor Logan’s kidney at 28 weeks just to make sure that he’s okay, but Doc thinks we have nothing to worry about.  We are so thankful that God is still watching out for our precious babies!!
Miss Anything?  Not really.
Movement:  LOTS!!!  They are getting more and more powerful and Daddy has felt some pretty strong kicks!  It’s sooo amazing to feel
Food cravings/aversions:  GETTING HUNGRY A LOT!!!!  Craving french fries (potato anything) and fried pickles still.  LoL  NO real aversions.
Symptoms:  Feeling great but getting really sore off and on.  A little bit of back pain and quite a bit of stretching sensations and soreness
Anything making you queasy or sick:  The usual: Cigarette smoke and strong cologne/perfumes.
Labor Signs:  NO!  Praying we make it to at least 37 weeks with these two :)
Wedding rings on or off? On, except for at night because my hands swell more then
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy still 🙂  I do get emotional, but i’ve been mostly happy
Looking forward to:  Our 3D Ultrasound is coming next Saturday afternoon and it should be so cool to see them now that they’re bigger and look more like babies. 🙂  Baby Showers!!!!  I can’t even wait!!!  And our Baby-Moon back home in Maine.  I’m so excited that it’s finally our turn 🙂
