25 Weeks.

So it hit me today that I ideally have 12 weeks left. Holy moly!

How big are the Harber girls?
They're about 13 1/2 inches long, and should weigh about 1.5 lbs. Roughly the size of an eggplant. (Wow! They're getting big!)

What's going on with the Harber girls?
Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn't much more than an average rutabaga, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its color and texture.                 

I'm getting a LOT of pelvic pain. However, I'm almost positive that this is because there's almost ALWAYS one of my girls laying down there. The other is usually on the side or above the belly button. It makes it difficult to go from a seated position to standing, or whenever I roll over at night. :S I'm sure this will only get worse as my belly gets bigger too.

Body Changes:
Still no weight gain or loss. NOT that I'm complaining. Soon enough I'm sure I'll start swelling, which will make me gain water weight. :S Also, stretch marks. I'm so upset. I knew that I'd probablly get them. But they're SO dang ugly. All the cocoa butter in the world isn't helping either. My only hope is that they'll fade after that babies are born. Oh well. My belly is getting HUGE. O.M.G. I don't know how much bigger it's going to get..but considering I have 12 weeks left...it's only going to get worse.

My belly is actually bouncing when the girls move these days. It's CRAZY to me. I see it all the time, though Luke claims he never does. One of the girls was dancing around in there this afternoon. At about 6-8 seconds in in this one you can see a good kick pretty much right in the center, another right around 12-14 seconds. Then there's just a lot of movement (mostly on the lower left side), some bouncing because she was rolling around. I think it's really neat..but still entirely weird! Haha.

I'm going to keep trying to get a good video of them dancing around in there. I'm sure it will only get worse as the space between them gets smaller! Lol. Anyhow! 101 Days left until our due date!
