Update: 17 weeks

How far along? 17 weeks (even!)

Maternity clothes? Maternity clothes all the way and proud of it! :)

Symptoms: Still fatigued every now and then. Just had a lovely episode of heartburn last night and hopefully it's not a frequent symptom.

Stretch marks? Not yet and I hope they stay away!

Sleep? Sleep is getting rougher. I sleep on one side for about an hour and then I feel sore on that side, so I have to flip. This continues all night, which makes for a somewhat restless sleep. Along with the two or three trips to the bathroom.

Best moment this week? I absolutely love that our daughter loves to talk to my belly (babies). She keeps asking, "when are they going to come out?"

Movement? I swear I felt a flutter today. :)

Food Cravings? Since I can't have Subway/deli sandwiches, I'm loving my veggie sandwiches.

Gender? Not sure yet. We can't wait to find out! DH thinks two boys. I think boy/girl.

What I miss? A good night's sleep, but I think it's preparing me for when they arrive.

What I'm looking forward to? September 15th when we find out the genders!

Milestones: The nausea has seemed to pass for the most part! YAY!

Emotions: Feel okay at the moment, but I'm feeling like I need to get things ready in the nursery. Hoping not to stress too much about it yet.

Update: 14 weeks 1 day

Though my pregnancy ticker says 14w2d, I think I'm officially 14w1d. I got this idea from Michelle( Hope you don't mind me using this for updating posts.

How far along? 14 weeks 1 day

Maternity clothes? For sure, I'm in maternity shorts/pants and have been for the past week or so. I can still fit in skirts with elastic waists. I've worn a couple maternity shirts because I do feel more comfortable in them. If I wear my "normal" shirts, I feel like they are too tight and just make me look pudgy, not pregnant.

Symptoms: Nausea seems to come around in the evening at its worse. I feel fine in the mornings. I do get tired easily throughout the day, but if I keep moving, I don't always realize I'm tired. As long as I don't overeat at a meal, I feel alright.

Stretch marks? Not yet and I hope they stay away!

Sleep? I definitely fall asleep very easily, but I do wake up once or twice throughout the night to use the bathroom. Sometimes, I have a difficult time falling back to sleep, but overall, I love sleeping. :)

Best moment this week? Our daughter kisses my belly and says good morning to the twins every morning. It's so sweet.

Movement? I'm not sure if I feel anything yet. Sometimes it feels like I do, but I really think it's too early to tell.

Food Cravings? Cucumbers with sour cream and vinegar! I ate this a lot when I was pregnant with my daughter. I love home-grown cucumbers from my Mom's garden, so tis the season for some great cucumbers.

Gender? Not sure yet. We can't wait to find out!

What I miss? Being able to brush my teeth at night. I try to, but I usually gag on my the paste. My teeth don't feel as clean as they should, but I know it's a small sacrifice.

What I'm looking forward to? My first ob/gyn appointment next week Thursday.

Milestones: Getting through the first trimester with no issues.

Emotions: Definitely cranky when I'm hungry or tired. Otherwise, my emotions are in check right now...I'll let you know when my kindergartner goes to school in 3 weeks. (I'll probably be a mess!)
