18.5 weeks

This is the 18.5 week pic


I feel like I am twice this big
and depending on what I wear
on any given day
I might really look twice this big

I have gained
four pounds in three weeks

ugh...
and I already have to hold my breath
to bend over
to tie my kids shoes.

This week baby center says:
"Head to rump, your baby is about 5 1/2 inches long
(about the length of a bell pepper)
and he weighs almost 7 ounces."

So multiply that
times two
,
and there you go.

As I post this,
I am one day away from 19 weeks
This week, (Tomorrow)
our friend who is an ultrasound tech
said she would so a quick one
so we can see
boys, girls, or one of each.
(I am putting my money on one of each).

Next week at 20.5 weeks
we see the perinatologist
(high risk preggo doctor)
for the full 20 week ultrasound
then a follow up the following week with my OB.

This twins thing is a lot more work than I thought.

Double the blessings though, right?
Right?

(Counting on those blessings in a big way!)
