Bell Peppers

Today begins our 5th month! The babies are now each the size of a bell pepper... about a half a pound and 6 inches long. It is crazy to think something(s) that big are moving inside me and I cannot feel them. I keep waiting!!! I also cannot believe how fast time has gone by. It's hard to believe we are half way there (hoping we make it to 36 weeks). My first fears when hearing we were having twins were all about carrying them and getting huge, not about raising them like I think most people would think. Thanks to my sister I am not fearful of raising the babies once home... she'll always be 2 years ahead of me to answer all my questions! We are 18 weeks this week, which starts the 5th month of pregnancy. So far I have gained between 0-3 pounds (depending on what I ate that day). The babies are definitely starting to show though! Here are some pictures of the last few weeks. I'm sure I will be growing much faster for the next post with pictures.
