Week 22 #operationhornettes

How far along:  22 weeks!!!  Over the halfway mark and well into my second trimester.  Crazy because it's gone by so quickly.
Size of twinkies:  Fruit of the week is papaya.  8" long and 1.2 lbs.  They are plumping right up!  Just what I like to see.
Total weight gain:  Will find out in 3 days.
Maternity clothes:  Seriously why can't normal jeans be made like maternity jeans??  They are soo comfortable.
Sleep:  Still getting up 2-3 times per night but I do seem to be going right back to sleep which is great.
Gender:  Two cute as pie baby boys.
Names:  We are pretty close to finalizing the names...any day now!
Best moment of the week:  We bought so much for the nursery this week.  Mattress, mattress pads, gliders, rug, fabrics, curtain rods, bookcases and bench cushion.  Can't wait to see it all come together!
Miss anything:  Nope.
Movement:  Yup! At some points it's like a jungle gym in there.
Food cravings:  Anything mexican.
Anything make you sick or queasy:  Do I even need to say it anymore?
Mood:  Excited and elated.
Looking forward to:  Getting the nursery painted.

Week 21 #Operationhornettes

How far along:  21 weeks!!! 
Size of twinkies:  Size of a squash.
Total weight gain:  Not sure...won't know till November 6th at my next appointment.
Maternity clothes:  Obvs!  Look at me!  hahaha
Sleep:  Getting up about 2-3 times a night to go to the bathroom but overall pretty good.
Gender:  Two bouncing baby boys!
Names:  Still deciding between a couple names....
Best moment of the week:  Feeling the twinks move never gets old!
Miss anything:  Being able to sleep through the night.
Movement:  You know it!  They are moving more and more.  I can't distinguish between the two babes.  I've heard and read that twins can start to play games with one another in utero (i.e. one will tap twice and the other will respond.)  That would be amazing to feel/witness.
Food cravings:  BLT and chocolate (but not together)
Anything make you sick or queasy:  still the same ole, same ole...pork.
Mood:  Happy, happy and happy!
Looking forward to:  Seeing the nursery progress and more movement!
