Update: ~25 Weeks

How far along? 24 weeks 6 days

Weight gain? 20 lbs

Symptoms: Aches and pains have arrived! Lots of kicking/movement in my belly!

Stretch marks? Not yet!

Sleep? Not so comfortable, difficulty moving from side to side.

Best moment this week? Had another anatomy scan this past week and the babies are measuring right on target.

Movement? I feel them often throughout the day, especially after I eat a meal.

Food Cravings? Yogurt and sweets.

Gender? TWO GIRLS!!!

What I miss? I miss being able to hold my daughter who's 50 pounds, but even if I wasn't pregnant, I'm not sure how long I could hold/carry her.

What I'm looking forward to? Meeting our little girls.

Milestones: During our anatomy ultrasound this past week, we could see both faces (Baby A was shy at first) and the doctor got a great look at each of their hearts.

Emotions: I feel somewhat frustrated at times because I can't do the things I have been able to do earlier in the pregnancy. I know, I need to take it easy and rest when I'm tired; however, I have a problem with sitting still and doing nothing. I know it's a small sacrifice to ensure that our girls stay safe and healthy.


  1. So glad to hear you are doing well. Congrats on another marker. It is frustrating to get further along and less able to move but you will be doing plenty of moving soon enough :) Take care.

  2. Thanks much! Can't believe I'm this far already...the pregnancy has been going fast.

  3. Hope, it is always great to hear how great you and the girls are doing. Feeling baby is one of the things I miss about being pregnant. Keep growing those girls!
