15 Weeks Pregnant

Sleep
I am not sleeping very well. I've been waking up at about 3am and haven't been able to go back to sleep. I am having about 4 dreams a night...some RATHER pleasant and others VERY unpleasant.

My Size
There are days I already feel PREGNANT. You know that "I'm exhausted and can't move" feeling. And then other days I feel like I'm barely showing. I am bigger than I was when Cole was born.

Excitement
I full-on felt the babies move. One of them (could have been two...who knows) moved from the bottom of my belly to right below my bellybutton. Ahhh. It lasted a while - maybe 5 minutes. It felt so strong I thought for sure you'd be able to see it on the outside. Funny how that works, huh? It can feel so strong on the inside and feel like NOTHING on the outside.

Morning Sickness
It's still there, but significantly better. The other day we made meatballs in the crockpot and it took everything in me to be anywhere near the kitchen. Mr. Howard was at work and I was home with Connor by myself. I put him in the bath, ran quickly through the hallway with him (so as to avoid the smells wafting from the kitchen), quickly went into his room to put him down for bed, and then locked myself in my bedroom and went to bed. Mr. Howard had to clean the kitchen when he got home so that I didn't get sick in the morning. Last night I was trying to take my prenatals. This is always a big pain. I fight with myself to get them down. Mr. Howard popped one in my mouth (touching them in my hands makes me gag...I know RIDICULOUS) and it came right back out. I seriously sit there mentally arguing with myself to just put the pill in the mouth and swallow. And yes, I realize how unbelievably insane that sounds.

Random Twin Fact
Once you've had fraternal twins, you are 3 to 4 times more likely to have another set! Whew! Good thing we wanted three babies!

I totally get the thing where some days you feel super pregnant, other days you don't. I've had times where I almost forgot anything was happening down there! I then (with humor implied) apologize to my baby. :)

I didn't have quite that much trouble with the prenatals, but I did have a serious aversion to taking them. One time I took them too early before eating breakfast. Bad idea. They didn't exactly stay in my stomach!

Congrats on feeling your twins so much! I can't wait till I can feel my baby more consistently.
