24 weeks 5 days

How Far Along: 24 weeks and 5 days

How Big are the Babies? A & C are 1 lb 9 oz and B is 1 lb 5 oz (a week ago)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I think I'm up 14 lbs now (I've lost track)
Maternity Clothes: I have waited so long to wear Maternity clothes and I have to say that I HATE maternity pants, they put me in a bad mood because they are so uncomfortable.  So I wear yoga pants everyday (not the same exact pair).
Gender:  We will find out when they are born but it is really hard to leave the OB office without knowing, but I give myself the same speech every time.  It does not matter what gender they are as long as they are healthy.
Movement: They move a lot, actually Baby B is freaking out as we speak.  But I like to feel their movements.
Sleep: I want to sleep all the time but it doesn't happen, I probably only get a good solid 4 hours of sleep a night the rest is me in the bathroom or trying to get comfy.
Belly button in or out? In, but it will pop in the next month.
What I miss: Sleep and being able to bend over.
Milestones: the nursery is almost done, the carpet and new ceiling fan is all that is left for the construction part of it.
Food Cravings:  Nothing in particular right now.  I have cravings for soda (dr. pepper, caffeine free of course) often though
Aversions: Chinese and mexican food
Symptoms: nausea sometimes, swollen ankles, sore nipples, back pain (on the left side), fatigue, moodiness (when I'm hungry or tired)
Best Moment this week: My baby shower is being planned (didn't think I would ever make it to this point and I'm going to enjoy the day)
Funny Moment: I bought ugly shoes that have velcro so that I can put my own shoes on
What I'm looking forward to:My baby shower
Does it seem early in the pregnancy for my ankles to be swollen already?

Yay for growing babies!!! FYI, I LOVE the Old Navy trouser maternity jeans- maybe those would work for you.

Depends on how swollen they are - not terribly unusual for multiples. I developed cankles pretty early... Just be sure to keep an eye on your blood pressure - can sometimes be a sign of pre-eclampsia. Just keep those suckers elevated (i.e. take all the rest breaks you want during your day!).

Glad you're doing well overall - can't wait to see pictures from the shower!

I loathe my maternity pants as well! As soon as I am in the comfort of my own home they are off and I'm in my pj's!
You are SO good about the babies gender! I would have at least asked the doctors if they were all the same or there was a mix :)
I would definitely tell your doctor about your ankles. A little swelling at the end of the day is OK, but major swelling could be a sign of Pre eclampsia. I started swelling up around 30 weeks with my daughter.

SO SO SO happy for you, and love it when you update!! Watch the swollen ankles (pretty normal in pregnancy) but if you get that with dizziness, go have your blood pressure checked! I hear you on not liking maternity pants. I had to get a size bigger and the ones with the material that covered my entire belly because the other kind literally hurt me. I don't think yoga pants were around much 8 years ago.. but I'm sure if I get pregnant anytime soon that will be all I wear, because I pretty much wear yoga pants all the time now! LOL

I emailed you - just wondering what you found out at lunch time?
