20 weeks! Again, I feel like time is flying by!
How Far Along:

How Big Are The Babies?
The babies weigh about 10 1/2 ounces now. He’s also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. For the first 20 weeks, when a baby’s legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the “crown to rump” measurement. After 20 weeks, he’s measured from head to toe. (Via Baby Center)
I’m still craving beef ! I’ve also been craving lots of sweets, but I’m trying to stay away. I could also go for a Diet Coke!
Nothing in particular!
– Exhaustion: I’m still really tired. I’ll get spurts of energy but they don’t last too long.

We are also trying to figure out names. We had a list of about 10 boy names but nothing for girls! At least we still have 4 months left to figure it out!
Even though my last appointment was the anatomy scan, it was pretty basic. Everything is looking good so far!
We see my OB next week but those appointments are usually very quick. My next appointment with my MFM isn’t for another 6 weeks where they will then do an echocardiogram ultrasound, which is normal for twins. I’ll be 26 weeks and he is thinking we will start weekly growth ultrasounds at 30 weeks.
