Babies Update--25 Weeks

How far along: 25 weeks and 1 day
Total weight gain: 25lbs, no judging!
Maternity clothes: Yes, yes, yes! I don't fit in anything else and maternity clothes are so comfy.
Stretch marks: I have one or two on my love handles still, no new ones since 20 weeks
Sleep: Still not fun, waking up at least 3 times a night to pee.
Best moment of this week: getting to see the babies and sushi date with Nathan today at lunch
Miss anything: I really don't miss anything, I honestly feel better pregnant than not pregnant. 
Movement: Oh my gosh yes! You can see my belly moving like crazy from the outside! Baby girl is on my left and I can feel her more than baby boy because her placenta is behind her while baby boy's is in front of him so it's a little harder to feel his kicks but I still do!
Food cravings: Still macaroni and cheese, I want to eat it every day!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! I've been feeling awesome!
Have you started to show yet: Obviously! Strangers are always talking to me now about my belly. I love it. I did have a homeless woman rub my belly while Nathan and I were on a walk yesterday. The two questions I get asked the most when I tell someone it's twins is "does it run in your family?" and "do you have family near by?" We don't have family near by yet, but we will soon! And twins do not run in our family. Mine were conceived via IVF, my sister Lauren does have natural twins so I am sure people thing they do run in our family!
Gender: Boy and Girl
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: Both, not quite all the way out yet.
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy 
Looking forward to: We have so much to look forward to! Moving down to Arizona, my sister Morgan coming home from her mission, the holidays, and our sweet babies being born!

Here I am at 25 weeks and 1 day.

We had another big anatomy scan today (I guess you get more than one with twins!) and I loved seeing the babies, they just keep getting cuter and cuter!

Baby girl is still baby A (meaning she will be born first), she is head up and weighs 1 pound 15 oz. Baby boy is baby B and is head down and weighs 1 pound 11 oz. We were not able to get a good picture of baby boy because baby girl was sitting on his head! Below is a picture of her thigh/leg on top of his head. I can tell this is going to be a fun relationship to watch grow :)

And this is baby girl, I couldn't believe how well you could see her face on a 2d scan.
We are so blessed to have these healthy babies!
