21 weeks

A little late to post this and sorry no all know it's been a crazy week!

How far along? 21 weeks
Baby’s size? At our last appt. on 2/27, Baby A was 12 oz. and Baby B was 13 oz.  I would assume that they are verrrry close to one pound each now! :)
Total Weight Gain: About 16 pounds?  Again, haven't weighed myself in a while.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep:  Good, despite being woken up 500 times during the night....gotta love hospital sleeping.
Best moment this week: Being finished with my cerclage that happened yesterday...and most importantly, the fact that it went well.  I have the most incredible doctor's EVER.  
Miss Anything? Home.  My bed, my own food, my husband, my sweet puggies, etc.
Movement: Yes, I love it!
Food cravings: Still the same...can't get enough eggs, avocados and smoothies!
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope!
Gender: Girl and Boy :)
Labor Signs: Hopefully not any more!  My cervix was starting to shorten, so I had the cerclage done yesterday (sowing up the cervix).  This should be what I need and should keep these babies cooking for a few more weeks!  I also have an irritable uterus.  I wasn't having flat out contractions (thank goodness), but very slight irritation with my uterus.  Good news is the past few days have been calm and quiet with my uterus...let's hope this continues.  I'm being monitored for this as I type...
Symptoms: Not many this week....I still feel great, despite being on bed rest.
Belly Button in or out? Still flesh with my skin...I told my hubby the other day that when I run my finger down my stomach there is no way of me knowing if I have a belly button or's that flesh and all stretched out...pretty crazy.
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Well it's def. been a hard week as you can tell from my previous posts.  I am trying to stay positive and in the end I'm so happy because I have these two little miracles and fighters growing in my belly and that makes me light up with happiness.  I just still don't understand why we have had to fight a VERY hard battle this past couple years with getting pregnant and now staying pregnant, but I know when our sweet babies are born we will forget all about this...
Looking forward to: Going HOME!  Still not sure when that will be.  Everyone keeps asking, but honestly we just don't know----and either do the doctor's.  They really take everything one day at a time here which makes sense.
