How far along: 24 weeks

Due date: C-section on the books for July 6th!

Babies are the size of: Grapefruits 

Weight gain: 30 pounds... debating how long I want to keep posting this detail ;)

Size: Measuring 28 weeks (for a single pregnancy) which is right on track for twins

Sleep: Thinking of ordering one of those crazy pregnancy pillows. I could use a little help. 

Maternity Clothes: Thoughts - how much longer can I pose in this white tank top?

Food Cravings: Raspberry filled glazed donuts, crackers, fruit smoothies

Scariest Moment So Far: Midnight trip to the hospital to determine if my water had broken. First test was positive for amniotic fluid (bad news). 

Best Moment So Far: Determining that everyone was fully packed in liquid and there were no leaks in the pool (good news).

Changes: Had to stop singing at 21 weeks (major bummer) for lack of lung capacity. Also I can't get the mail... our driveway is too steep. I am this close to needing oxygen tanks and a motorized cart. 

Health Check: Passed my second glucose test and my blood pressure is normal. My iron is low, though. No surprises there. 

Looking Pregnant: A man offered to let me use the restroom before him in a disgustingly full 7-11. It's no longer just mothers who take pity on me. 

Movement: Feeling them a lot now. Love those little feet... even when they're kicking the crap out of me.
