17 Weeks

Sleep
I don't get it, but I can take naps and sleep fully. I've taken to putting Connor to bed for naptime and then I crawl into bed and sleep for a couple hours. Strange, but at least I can sleep!

My Size
At my last appointment I measured at 21 weeks. I'm sure I'm at least measuring at 22 weeks this week. This week is considered my half way point! I'm half way there folks!

The Babies' Size/Growth
They are around 5 inches long. This is 10 inches of baby in there! They are now capable of swallowing, blinking, and sucking.

Excitement
I have been able to feel the babies move a lot. In bed often, I can feel them push my lower belly out. Mr. Howard has been able to feel them too! He can't put his hand on my stomach and feel them move. BUT he can feel where my belly is hard, where a head/back/arm/leg is. He pushes lightly and can feel the baby...at least until one of them moves back to where neither of us can feel anymore. It is SOO very fun!

Random Twin Fact
Twins do not have to be born on the same dates. The longest gap between birth is 85 days.
