17 weeks!

The shirt says I'm 16 weeks, and technically yesterday I was...had to get the picture in before I turned 17 weeks!
How far along? 17 weeks
Baby’s size? About the size of a turnip, but I personally think they are bigger than that now!
Total Weight Gain: 9 pounds
Stretch marks? Very slight ones on my back, but they are not too bad at all.  Keeping them under control with lots of oil and lotion.
Sleep:  It has been wonderful lately.  This cold weather is helping...I looove sleeping in the cold!  The crazy dreams have started which is interesting.  I broke out my snoogle, but then got a horrible cold so I'm waiting until the cold goes completely away before trying it out again.
Best moment this week: Buying our cribs and dresser/changing table.  We had such a fun time doing this.  Now, we just have to put them all together.  We will do this in March as February is a busy month for us.
Miss Anything?  Nope.  Love this growing belly and these growing babies.
Movement: I'm *POSSIBLY* starting to ever so slightly feel movements...I think.  But, it could be all in my head.  Once in a while I feel VERY slight flutters...again, not sure if it's the real deal or not...who knows.  
Food cravings: Smoothies (can't get enough of them) and avocados!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  I had a HORRIBLE cold earlier in the week, but thankfully it didn't last too long.  I made sure to get extra sleep, eat very healthy and pump up my Vitamin C...I think doing all of these things helped kick the cold quicker.  Thank goodness.
Gender: We know and we've told family!  We have another big doctor's appt. on Wednesday with our multiple specialist.  We will also have an ultrasound at this appointment and will get the sexes confirmed once again.  Then we'll still wait about a week to announce the news to everyone. :)  
Labor Signs: NO!
Symptoms: Leg cramps...that's about it.
Belly Button in or out? Still flesh with my crazy!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Super happy.  I still can't believe I'm pregnant and then I think about the two babies inside of me and I just can't contain my excitement and love for them.  
Looking forward to: Our dr. appointment on Wednesday and getting to see our little munchins.  We also have an appt. on Thursday with my OB to do blood work for down syndrome and other such tests.  Will be a big doctor's appt. week!
