[caption id="attachment_120" align="aligncenter" width="225" caption=""Take my picture already so I can get back to building stuff""][/caption]

How far along? 25 weeks

Total weight gain: +20

Maternity clothes? Yes, all the time and some of them are actually getting too short/small.. eep.

Sleep: sleeping great!

Best moment this week: Massage and facial last weekend at the spa - it was heaven!

Movement: Feeling tons of movement all day long and it already feels like each baby has their own personality because their movements are definitely different. I would like it if Baby B could manage to shimmy her hinney down out of my ribs :)

Food cravings: Lemonade!

Food aversions: None - I like food!

Gender: Girls

Labor Signs: No

What I miss: I miss having control over my body, but I am working on surrendering for these next few months. Then after that, cannot wait to bend over, go running and wear normal clothes!

Weekly Wisdom: Appreciating my husband and life in general and enjoying being pregnant for the most part.

Milestones: Reached the point of early viability this week, but they still need to be inside babies for a few more months.

23 week growth scan

We had our first growth scan ultrasound today. With twins we  have growth scans every month until they are born to monitor each baby's growth. They measure each one's stomach, head and femur on the ultrasound to come up with a weight. Today Baby A is 1 lb. 2 oz. (37th percentile) and Baby B is 1 lb. 3 oz. (45th percentile).  From here on out they should be growing quite fast.

Both babies are in position with their heads down, but there is still lots of time for them to move around and out of position. Knowing these two wiggly worms, they will probably move in and out of position over the next couple months. It was fun to see all four feet tangled up at the top - no surprise to us because we both felt them kicking all weekend long.

I'm thankful that both babies are doing great and we are all having a healthy pregnancy so far.  Thank you all for supporting us through this crazy adventure!
