Babies Bump and 19 & 20 Week Updates

19 AND 20 WEEKS LOOKS LIKE THIS:
 
 
 
How far along:  These pictures were taken at 19 weeks 5 days and 20 weeks 3 days.
Total weight gain?  As of my last doctor's appointment, which was the babies' amazing anatomy scan last Tuesday, I was officially up 13 lbs.  Whatever I lost from having the flu and not wanting to eat during my 19th week definitely came back!  Phew!  I'm still receiving comments from people saying that I don't look pregnant enough to be having twins and while I always shrug when I hear that, I'm just trying to focus on my doctor's comment that I'm doing just fine in the weight department!
Maternity clothes?  This weekend I did a second rummage through my closet and drawers and packed away pretty much the last of my non-maternity clothes.  Except for my leggings.  I'll wear those until they have holes in them!
Stretch marks?  Still none... so far.  But, I can absolutely feel my skin really starting to stretch, so we'll see.
Sleep:  Since recovering from the flu, sleep has been a little better.  My nose has slightly cleared so I feel like I can breathe at least a little bit better now.  I officially get up at least once per night, though, to go to the bathroom.
Best moment this week:  Best moment of week 19: the babies' perfect anatomy scan.  WHAT A BLESSING! 
Camden is on the top and Austin is on the bottom.  I sort of think they look like twins! :)
Best moment of week 20: having my mom make the boys' cribs this weekend and hanging the curtains in their room.  My boys have the best Nana already!  Once we (well, my mom) made their beds, Belle wanted get in there to see what all the commotion was about... here's my first baby in Austin's bed, not sure what to make of it!
 
 

Miss anything?  I can honestly say that there's really nothing I miss right now.  I'm really beginning to love this stage of pregnancy!
Movement:  I really think I can feel them now - not a ton, but sometimes I think I feel movement that I can only describe as giant air bubbles.  At the anatomy scan last week, the boys were very active.  Camden even kicked Austin a time or two while the tech was taking Austin's measurements.  Ha!  I love these little guys so much already!
Food cravings:  Still none.  I just eat what sounds good at the time.  And what's easy.  I don't think I've cooked a single thing since the week I found out I was pregnant.
Anything make you queasy or sick?  While I feel 100% better than I had felt for the first 17 weeks of my pregnancy, I still do sometimes get bouts of nausea.  But it's honestly nothing compared to what it was.  And nothing in particular brings it on... it's just sort of a normal feeling now I guess.
Gender:  LOVE my Boys!
Labor Signs:  None.  Phew!
Symptoms:  The same… Linea nigra, some ligament pain on my left side in my hip/upper leg area, the nasal congestion and restlessness.  I'm also starting to really feel the stretching of my skin on my stomach.  It just feels extremely tight.  And while it's not painful, it's just more so uncomfortable.
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:  Starting off my next week of pregnancy without feeling sick from nausea or the flu... and to feeling more of my sweet boys' kicks!

You look fantabulous! Don't worry about the "you don't look like ur having twins" comments. My friend was small her whole pregnancy but now that she's ready to pop she has grown. Enjoy it!

Amie said...

Your boys are just beautiful!! Love the bedding too :)

Sally said...

Those perfect little boys will be here before you know it......after 20 weeks it goes soooo fast I think! You look gorgeous!! And look at Belle, still gonna be the little princess :)))

Katie Jeanne said...

I love the cribs and you look adorable! I, too, had the flu and it isn't fun when you are pregnant. I hope you feel better soon!

Mrs. Lost said...

Two perfect miracles! You look great and I am loving their room. We are half way there friend! Before you know it we will be holding our sons... :)

Suzanne said...

What a great update!! So glad the anatomy scan went so well. You look amazing.

Sarah said...

I'm so behind in the nursery department compared to you!! And don't even worry about what others say about your weight. I have friends who put on 15 pounds total and friends who put on 75 total and their babies are both perfectly fine! :)

1. You look amazing! Love the growing bump! 2. Belle looks less than thrilled, love her little face! 3. Yay! So exciting!

Darcie K said...

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling so much better MS wise! Finally!

As for the "small" comments..... I get them too (pregnant with a singleton). I did with dd and I took it as a compliment then. Well, this time I know the physical reason why I carry "small" (even though I gain the appropriate amount of weight) so the comments rub me the wrong way sometimes. Also, I just went to a baby shower for a friend having twins.... so many people told her that she was tiny for twins. I tell you all of this just try to offer you some company in this regard.

I think you look perfect and adorable :)

Emily said...

Congrats on the perfect anatomy scan! That is awesome awesome news!!!

Sarah Beth said...

Awe what joyful news - perfect anatomy scans! And look at you - with your adorable bump! I bet people just make comments because you look so great being 20 weeks pregnant with twins! Oh I love it! Glad your health is better and nausea is subsiding! Enjoy- enjoy-enjoy!

Emily said...

Amazing news! LOVE the anatomy scan! So much viewing time :)
You look perfect...and I definitely see growth from one pic to the next! Funny how sometimes in a matter of days, the belly "pops" out a little more!

Kari B. said...

I think you look great!! Don't let what others say bother you. I have a few fellow blogger friends who are pregnant with singletons and they get annoyed with "are you sure there's only one in there?!" comments. So please know the rude comments happen to nearly every pregnant woman. When I was pregnant with my son, it would annoy me to hear people tell me I wasn't gaining enough weight. I couldn't help it! I was active and I didn't stuff my face constantly. I gained enough according to my doctor and my son was healthy. That's all that mattered!

Ashley said...

You look fantastic!!!! Soo glad you are feeling better!! Look at those boys!! Can't wait for them to get here (except I can wait because they need to cook longer). Half way!!!

Risa said...

Gah! You look adorable! Congrats on the anatomy scan!

Ashley Sanderson said...

That's the fun part of being pregnant :) Listening to everyone's opinions about how you look :) I've had to work at just letting it roll off my shoulder! You do look adorable and I feel like you definitely popped from week 19 to week 20. Those boys are definitely growing!

Amber said...

only get up once/night to pee??? Really? You are so lucky. I was anywhere from 3-5 times EVERY single night! But I would take that over your extreme nausea any day. I'm so glad you are feeling soooo much better. You look fabulous, the babies look amazing, and I am just so crazy happy for you!
