100th post!

This is the 100th post in this blog! I guess I've had a lot to talk about this year! :)

I've been having 'growing pains' for about 2 hours now. I just KNEW I was going to have a growth spurt this week. Most twin surros I've talked with had a spurt around 22 weeks. I've also had a foot (I think) in my ribs. It feels like Baby B is turning herself around from transverse to breech, and back...and pressing out against my belly to aid her gymnastics. Baby A just kicks and squirms like usual. They have been extra squirmy today...no doubt caused by needing to expand their home a bit.

I'm getting some more stretch marks, too. And I'm sure there are plenty more to come! Let's just say I am glad the holidays are over and I can get back to NOT eating fudge, cookies, cake, etc. We hadn't spent much time at home over the past couple of weeks so we were at the mercy of my inlaws (and their tasty treats!) and several restaurants. The girls have been eating a little TOO well, thats for sure! Back to normal now though. :)

OH...and this may be too much information for some of you, but I am producing colostrum (early milk) already. I definitely didnt produce any this early with my kiddos, so I think its interesting, and worth noting.

Well thats all for now. I just thought I would take note of my suspected growth spurt. I will have a new belly pic on Friday, along with my 23 weeks update!

Happy 100th post!!
I've been terrible about posting in the past month or so, so I think that my 100th post is going to take quite a long time to reach at my current rate!
Sounds like you have quite a lot of activity going on in there! And wow, that sounds like there must be a lot of growth going on too - I hope the growing pains aren't too painful! :(
I live under the theory that there is no such thing as TMI (most of the time anyway) :) That does seem early! Does having 2 in there accelerate that?
I hope that you had a great Christmas and I look forward to your next update!

I had colestrum that early with my first pregnancy so it does happen. This time around (#4, 1st surro) I am at 22 weeks and it has not happened yet. Don't worry- it's totally normal.
