12 Weeks!!!

How far along? 12 weeks
Baby's Size: Plums!!
Total weight gain/loss: So far I am down about 16lbs from transfer
Maternity clothes? Nope not yet, still no real baby bump
Stretch marks? Only the ones I got from my kiddos.
Sleep: Sleeping ok getting hard to get comfortable to go to sleep though
Best moment this week: Still having good days and bad days. I was able to keep that nasty sugar drink down for the stupid sugar test though.
Movement: The Tinks move like crazy! it's so cool seeing them on ultrasound and knowing I feel that sometimes. 
Cravings: Movie Popcorn!! 
Symptoms: Still morning sickness, round ligament pains
Gender: Girlies!
Labor Signs: None, of course. This questions is irrelevant for the next 6ish months.
Belly Button in or out? In and honestly I highly doubt it will ever be any other way.
What I am looking forward to: Our next ultrasound and appointment in 4 weeks! (No more shots!)
Weekly Wisdom: This too shall pass....
Milestones: The Tinks Mommy & Daddy were able to come up and see their NT Sonogram!! They got to see their girls in person and watch them move and hear their heartbeats. It was GREAT!

The most dramatic development this week: reflexes! The girls' fingers will soon begin to open and close, their toes will curl, their eye muscles will clench, and their mouth will make sucking movements. Her intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into their abdominal cavity about now, and their kidneys will begin excreting urine into their bladders. Also, nerve cells are multiplying rapidly, and in their brains, synapses are forming furiously. Their faces look unquestionably human: Their eyes have moved from the sides to the front of their heads, and their ears are right where they should be.
