Week 24: #operationhornettes

How far along: 24 weeks!!! Seems so crazy to think in a few short weeks I'll be entering the third trimester.

Size of twinkies: Fruit of the week is eggplant. 9" long and 1.7 lbs. At this point they are gaining an average of 6 ozs./week. Not sure how they're going to fit in there in a few weeks.

Total weight gain: Still at 24 pounds. I'm sure after Thanksgiving that will go up drastically! haha.

Maternity clothes: Um should this even be a question anymore?

Sleep: Getting up 3-4 times a night. I think it's God's way of preparing me for what is to come...

Gender: Two fightin' boys!

Names: We have FINALLY finalized the names!!! Can I get a woo hoo??

Best moment of the week: We had our mini Thanksgiving with the Holy Cross crowd and it was so fun showing off the nursery.

Miss anything: Nope.

Movement: Oh yeah. Now I can poke my belly and it causes them to move. I also noticed when I eat something sweet that really gets them going.

Food cravings: Anything mexican and BLTs.

Anything make you sick or queasy: Same ol, same ol.

Mood: Contentment and love (I know, I sappy...what can I say?)

Looking forward to: This is the week before the shower so getting things ready for it!

Week 23 #operationhornettes

How far along: 23 weeks!!! I can't believe it!

Size of twinkies: Fruit of the week is an ear of corn. 8.5" long and 1.5 lbs. I can't believe I have something that big times TWO growing in my belly right now. Craziness!

Total weight gain: 24 pounds.

Maternity clothes: Duh!

Sleep: Still getting up 2-3 times per night but I do seem to be going right back to sleep which is great.

Gender: Blue and blue.

Names: Still finalizing....

Best moment of the week: Jim put the cribs up!!!!!!!!!! Talk about it becoming real!!! I find myself going in there just to be in there. I still can't believe we are creating a nursery.

Miss anything: Nope.

Movement: I saw them move!!! Talk about the most amazing feeling in the world. It's so reassuring seeing them move around. It just makes my day.

Food cravings: BLT.

Anything make you sick or queasy: pork.

Mood: Loving every.single.second. of this pregnancy.

Looking forward to: Going to Infant CPR class.
