23 week twin bump

How Far Along?: 23 Weeks

Genders?: BOYS

How Big Are Babies?: They're the size of a grapefruit and are weighing just over a pound and about a foot long now. They're growing so fast! The babies are listening to our voices and my heartbeat, and even to loud sounds like cars honking and our dogs barking.

Weight Gain?: Haven’t weighed myself this week but I’m assuming around the same as last week.

Workouts?: NONE. I’m on bedrest right now.

Symptoms?: Cramping, swollen feet and hungry all the time. OH and heartburn.

Wedding Ring On or Off?: Off.

Stretch Marks?: Same, just under my boobs.

Belly Button?: Still in, but working its way out.

Movements?: ALL DAY LONG. Which I love! It's my favorite part of the day.

Sleep?: Little better, but not much. Still having trouble staying asleep.

What I Miss?: Not needing to rely on everyone around me for help.

Food Cravings?: None really.

Food Aversions?: None.

Labor Signs?: Severe cramping at one point.

What I Look Forward to This Week?: Getting our Christmas tree!

Notes: Spent today at the hospital because of severe cramping and they were concerned I was in preterm labor. They're keeping me over night. They think I have a bladder infection that traveled up to my kidneys. They did two cervical exams and a transvaginal ultrasound and thank GOD my cervix is closed! They also gave me a catheter OUCH! And an IV also...OUCH! I’m not looking forward to staying. I was in so much pain today but thankfully it calmed down. It was a scary day.
