Pregnancy - Week 16 & 17

So I couldn't get my normal little pictures to load so I found this picture of twins at 16 weeks. I know I'm a little behind but with the holidays things just got away from me. So I'm going to do a dual update as I doubt I'll get two seconds to blog for the remainder of the week.

How far along: 17 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: I haven't weighed myself but will @ my appt on Thurs so then I'll know for sure.

Maternity clothes: Pretty much in maternity at this point, except I can still wear some of my regular tops. Speaking of clothes, I spent half the day yesterday cleaning out my closet. I have way to many clothes normally but add in all the maternity clothes I've been blessed with and I had no more room. So I packed up a whole bunch of my pre-pregnancy clothes.

Stretch marks: None yet.

Sleeping: My sleeping continues to suck. Last week while we were at Dalyn's parents house, I slept horrible. The bed is so firm and without laying on my back I couldn't get comfortable.

Best moment last week:Spending Christmas with our families. Everyone is in such an uproar about the babies that pretty much all it was focused on. I'm also still feeling them move with never ceases to amaze me.

Symptoms: Lack of sleep, constant hunger, headaches, peeing all the time and round ligament pain still. My itching has pretty much gone away with some Aveeno soap and body wash and lots of lotion. I am still have ligament pain about once to twice a week. I'm starting to think I'm growing those days but who knows.

Food cravings: Still loving my onion soup. I'm still craving some weird things here and there.

Food aversions: Not much of anything anymore.

Gender: We go New Year's EVE to find out the sexes. I still think boy/girl and Dalyn is now on the fence, he's started to lean towards two boys. After hearing all the old wives tales this weekend people have started to make him think boys.

I miss: NOTHING!! I'm so ready to find out what the babies are I'm about to jump out of my skin. I can't wait to start buying stuff.

What I am looking forward to: Our OB appt Thursday

Body Changes: Not a ton to report. I think my hips are starting to spread some because the one pair of maternity pants that fit me perfectly before are getting a little snug. I also think I'm faintly started to get the little line down the center of your belly called Linea nigra. Its very very faint but I definitely think its coming. Other than that, stay tuned for the sexes in just a few days.
