20 Weeks {Boys have names!!!}

Babies have names!!!
Grayson Gregory & Greer Jamieson
(Gregory and Jamieson are family names on each of our sides of the family)

How far along: 20 weeks, 5 Days

Weight gain/loss: +7 lbs. at 143 (starting weight 136)

Maternity clothes: A few bottoms, and starting to invest in lots of maxi dresses {the only good thing about being pregnant with twins in the summer} Also- so thankful I work from home and haven’t had to buy maternity clothes for work every day.

Sleep: This got tougher this week. I wake up with a really sore belly, painful back {from sleeping on my side} and no amount of pillows have helped. So I’ve resorted to sleeping sitting up part way through the night.

Best moment this week: We received our cribs, mattresses and rocker this week, so Saturday we {we meaning hubby} spent the afternoon setting those up.

Food cravings: Watermelon, apples, chocolate chip cookies (I typically don't eat cookies)and milk (and I typically hate milk) I also got another craving for 5 Guys cheeseburger. So hubbs went out last night and got us that for dinner!
Food aversions: still meat and big portions

 Movement: lots and lots!
Gender: BOYS!

 Symptoms: Braxton Hicks, some minor to severe cramping, back pain, insomnia and afternoons start getting tough to stand up straight {sound fun yet?}

 Looking forward to: We are meeting with a pediatrician on Monday. I have a perfect person in mind, but she is just getting through with medical school, getting married and going on a honeymoon this month! And her and her cute soon to be hubby live in St.Pete, so I am sure she will look for a job there first, and practices will probably be DYING to have her down there. So we are interviewing a backup choice just in case J

Tuesday we have our cardio test at the peri’s office. This will be the longest appointment through out our whole pregnancy, they told us to pack a lunchJ I am, however, excited to see my littles for 2+ hours straight.

Baby/momma medical update: Hubbs got home from a work trip on Saturday morning around 1am. I had been feeling a few cramps here and there but nothing close to being severe. However, I woke up at 5am with severe cramping. So per my peri doc, that paired with Braxton Hicks required a call to my OB practice. So I called the on call doc, and he called me into the ER at the Women’s center. (again)

Everything ended up being perfectly fine. Cervix was still between a 3.8 and 4.1, babies heart rates were 143 and 151 which were perfect and there was no bleeding.

So I was told because I am so small {in their words “all skin and muscle, and no fluff”, ha!! yeah right, they didn’t turn me over}I am just feeling everything. Every little twinge and pain I feel more than what most people would.

So with that, everything is still good and staying the same, which I am happy with and thankful for.
