27 Weeks...3rd Trimester!

How far along? 27 weeks
How big are the babies? Eggplants!
Best moment this week: Ringing in the new year at home with Ryan, even if we did fall asleep before midnight!
Symptoms: I believe one of the twins has found comfort in my sciatic nerve
Movement:Very frequent
Food cravings:Raisin bagel with cream cheese!
Genders: A Boy and Girl!!!
Milestones: 3rd Trimester!!

Development: Babies' lungs are going through some major developments these days, which (combined with the opening of previously plugged nostrils) means they're now able to practice inhaling and exhaling. The lack of air in your womb means every "breath" is filled with amniotic fluid, but hey -- it's progress.

Headlines from the week:

Bruins win Winter Classic at Fenway
"The Bruins beat the Flyers 2-1 in OT in the annual Winter Classic.

Passengers on US-bound flights face more screening
The Transportation Security Administration says passengers flying into the US from certain countries will be subject to techniques such as body scans.

Weather today:
Flurries, 29 Degrees
