How far along? 8 weeks
How big are the babies? Raspberries
Best moment this week: Finding out we're having TWINS and seeing their strong heartbeats!
Symptoms: Definite morning sickness, a little bit bigger belly, and still very tired.
Movement: None yet
Food cravings: I've really been liking soup lately
Milestones: First ultrasound and appointment!
Development: Babies are growing like mad, putting on about a millimeter every day and continuing to straighten out in the trunk. Though you can't feel it yet, the babies are moving those little arms, legs, and (now only slightly) webbed fingers and toes like crazy.
