So this past week has been pretty uneventful and that is just how we like it! The ankles still swell a smidgen from time to time but just when I'm working. With the day off they are back to the ankles I know. I'm still feeling great. The only change this week is the increase in my appetite. Let's just say...I had a little ice cream yesterday morning....before noon! I'm toying with the idea of joining Matt in Tampa in a few weeks, while he'll be working I could sit at the pool...the last relaxation trip I could have before the babies join our family (externally that is, because they are already apart of our lives internally! Does that make sense?)
So this week the babies are the size of turnips (I don't know if I've ever actually held a turnip or seen one for that matter) weighing about 5 ounces each measuring 5 and a half inches long. The book says my uterus is the size of a cantaloupe....that's if I was having a singleton...look at me...seriously, I beg to differ! The babies can now do twists, rolls, kicks, and punches. I do feel the occasionaly twitch but as quick as it's there...it's gone. I've ask them to do it again but they don't seem to obey very well yet..haha! Also, the babies now have the ability to hiccup...even though I won't be able to feel that for quite some time...still cute to imagine!
