How far along? 35 weeks!!
How big are the babies? Honeydews!
Best moment this week: Getting to see the little ones on the big screen. Can't believe how big they are getting!
Symptoms: Sleeping has become a challenge, a lot more pressure these days too
Movement: All the time!
Food cravings: Back to ice cream :)
Genders: A Boy and Girl!!!
Milestones: 35 weeks down, 35 days to go (in theory anyways)
Development: From now on, the babies' growth is mostly in the plumping up department -- though they won't get much longer, they'll put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth. (They're about 15 percent right now and will be about 30 percent by full-term.) Their hearing is totally developed (tip: baby responds best to higher pitches)
