Pregnancy News: 16 weeks and gender reveal!

Shirt: Liz Lange Maternity via Target * Jeans: Mimi Maternity * Shoes: Life Stride

How far along?: 16 weeks

Total weight gain: Up to 123 lbs, so 10 lb weight gain. I've been doing a lot of research and reading books on nutrition for multiples. I have to pick up the weight gain. My high risk OB has told me this, so the pounds will start coming on : )

Maternity clothes?: Yup, full on maternity clothes. This belly is only getting bigger!

Stretch marks?: None.

Sleep: I sleep great at night! But I've been a great sleeper. Hope I can keep it up. I'm going to need my rest!

Best moment this week: We found out/ cofirmed the gender of both babies! Baby A- girl and Baby B- boy!

Miss anything?: Being active. I am only going to have to slow down even more, so I am getting more used to it.

Movement: Yes! Feels like popcorn popping : ) I started feeling it about 15 weeks. I should've known Baby B was a boy because compared to Baby A, he's my mover and shaker!
Food cravings: Still craving fruit!

Symptoms: More stretching in my uterus especially on the sides and at the top of my uterus.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!

Labor Signs: Nope. But I started with Braxton hicks this past weekend. I have to slow down!

Wedding rings on or off?: On. We'll see how long it lasts!

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! I can go back and forth, but I've been in a happy mood lately.

Looking forward to: Now that we know the gender, getting everything in the nursery ready for them. Even though, I'll be watching more than doing. I look forward to seeing them every 2 weeks, and now my high risk OB will see me every 3 weeks instead of 4.
