17 Weeks!

Wow!!  This week has flown by!

I don't quite know what to think about these weekly posts anymore!  What with last week's ultrasound and the babies being so big, I don't know how they now compare to what the books say....

So if the books say that this week the twins should be 4.4-4.8 inches and weigh 3.5 ounces, but last week, they were 6 ounces, what should we think?  I guess we'll just go with it, knowing that these babies are at least that big!  The twins are each about the size of your hand spread open wide!  Wow!

Let's talk about fat.  NO.....not me....and shame on you for thinking of me when I say the word fat!!  :)

The babies are developing fat as of this week!!  This is very exciting as fat will make up approximately 3/4 of their birth weight!  These kiddos are getting prepped and ready for birth.  And we want 'em nice and big and fat!  :-)

Only 3 more weeks until the guys are here and we have our "big" ultrasound and hospital tour!  Can't wait to see them!

Finally, I will say that I feel like the belly got MUCH bigger this week!  Do you agree, or is it just me?

17 Weeks


  1. I think you look amazing!! Congrats on healthy babies.


  2. It's the cutest baby bump! I love it.

  3. You look great!

    Remember the sizes are just estimates! The night before I delivered Harper and Gideon they said they one was low sevens and the other high 7's . . . they were in fact, at birth, high 5's and low 6 . . . just a pound or so off, LOL!

  4. Hollaaaa!! Look at you--you look amazing!! Congrats on 17 weeks!

  5. I never trust those dang ultrasounds for weights. They said my last daughter would be around 8 or 8 1/2 lbs and she was 7lbs...whatever. :-)
    You're lookin' good and I don't think you look any bigger than last week. Blame it on the clothes, that's what I do :)

  6. love it! Flaunt that belly!!!
