Babies Bump and 21 Week Update

21 WEEKS LOOKS LIKE THIS:


How far along:  This picture was taken on Saturday at 21 weeks 3 days.
Total weight gain:  I'm officially up 16lbs.  And I couldn't be happier.  I pray for weight gain every time I step foot on the scale!
Maternity clothes?  Yes, yes and yes.  I am still wearing my leggings and some non-maternity sweatshirts and lounge wear, but for the most part it's all maternity clothes.
Stretch marks?  Still none.  But, I'm still sure that they're on their way.
Sleep:  Stinks.  I don't really sleep well at all anymore.  I go back and forth with using the snoogle pillow.  Some nights I feel like I can't live without it and other nights I swear that's what causes my restlessness.
Best moment this week:  More nursery purchases.  I love choosing things for the boys' room.  It's coming along and I can't wait to see it all finished.  Most of the big stuff is done and now I'm just working on the little details.  Like these adorable stack-able stuffed animals... Belle's new friends!
 
 
Miss anything?  I guess maybe sleep?  But other than that... I don't miss a thing.  Instead, I'm just looking forward to what's to come!
Movement:  The boys are moving and I can still feel the air bubble sensations every now and then.  They definitely aren't moving as much as I wish they would, which is when the Doppler comes in handy! 
Food cravings:  Are cravings during pregnancy a myth?  I'm not craving anything!  I guess I just eat when I'm hungry, but I haven't yet had one moment so far where I needed to send Nick to the store right away for something. 
Anything make you queasy or sick?  No.  Thank goodness that part of pregnancy seems to have passed!
Gender:  Love my Boys!
Labor signs?  None.  Phew!
Symptoms:  The same... Linea nigra, some ligament pain in both of my hips/upper legs, nasal congestion and restlessness at night.  Oh, and boob growth like WHOA!  I swear my boobs grew a full cup size in the matter of a week.  And that's AFTER they already grew a whole cup size from where they began!
Belly button in or out?  In.
Wedding rings on or off?  On when I'm out of the house and off when I'm in the house.
Looking forward to:  Everything!  Working on the boys' nursery, feeling them kick, punch and move more frequently and naps... I've never loved a nap as much as I do now!

Looking good! Those stuffed animals are cute. Looks like your pup might not want to give them up! I'm having the insomnia too...been assured numerous times that benadryl is ok to take, and it has been a lifesaver! Hope you get some zzzz's, but at least it's good training for what's to come I suppose. Oh, how nice it would be to sleep like a normal person though!

Amanda said...

Eek! You're SO beautiful! Pregnancy really suits you Aubrey. And I LOVE the little stuffed animals. This is going to be the cutest nursery! I'm so excited for you!

I've fallen off the blogosphere so I'm just finding out you're pregnant, and with twins! What amazing news to come back to :) Congratulations!! Wishing you tons of blessings!

Mrs. Lost said...

Lookin' good twin mama! The nursery is really coming together. We almost have everything cleaned out of our office(soon to be nursery) so that painting can begin. You are on top of it! Jealous.

Erika said...

You look adorable and I see you got the curtains up too! I can't wait for my 20 week ultrasound to find out my other one, if two boys our nurseries will look very much alike! :)

JoJo said...

Looking stunning! I be ur one of those women that u can't tell ur pregnant unless ur face front. (Take that as a conpliment) (;

JenS said...

You look adorable!
No cravings for you either? I felt a little cheated, to be honest. I wanted crazy cravings! The snoogle didn't do anything for me either. Total waste of money and now it's taking up a ton of space in my closet. I wish I could tell you sleep gets easier.

jAllen said...

You look gorgeous! After waiting so long and such a rough start with nausea and vomiting, pregnancy definately agrees with you!

Amy said...

Looking great! Try the smiling mind app to help sleep as you don't want insomnia to extend post baby (like mine did!). And relax about movement- you will wish you didn't stress so much when babies arrive. Please use this time to relax as much as you can (easier said than done!) x

Suzanne said...

Looking fabulous as ever!! I LOVE those little stackable stuffed animals. Awesome job on the nursery. They are going to love it!! xoxo

Sarah Beth said...

Looking good!

Amber said...

Aubrey, you are absolutely adorable! Beautiful on he inside and out. I didn't really have any cravings either. Loved my sweets, but I always do, so couldn't really count that. You will feel those boys of yours moving more soon! Don't you worry about that, because those kicks will get stronger and stronger before you know it.
