Oh em gee, I haven’t done one of these since I was 11 weeks! I’ve done a 12 and 13 week general update but I’m excited to be at 14 weeks already! Yay second tri!
BO & GO are the size of a…? Lemon! My goodness. This is BabyCenter’s 16 week as they only do twin pics every 4.
How far along? 14 weeks and 1 day.
Maternity clothes? Yes, and now with it being 85*+ here every day, I’m looking for cheap dresses to wear for the next 5 months as I sweat this out.
Weight Gain? No. In fact, I’m bothered by the fact that I’ve actually lost a pound since finding out I was having twins at 9 weeks. I can’t imagine how this is possible with all the stuff I’ve been forcing myself to eat, but there we have it. I also can’t imagine it when I look at my 9 vs 13 week photos.
Stretch Marks? They’re a’comin.
Sleep? Meh. It’s so dry here that my nose gets stuffed all the time and causes me to breathe through my mouth. And I’m super uncomfortable. My mom bought be one of those Boppy stomach pillows while she was visiting and it’s been wonderful.
Sickness? I’ve had the flu or something twice this past week. Besides the normal sickness I get. Really – it’s like death on top of mini death. But in general, some days are simply worse than others with being nauseated. I still am on Zofran 3x a day.
Movement? Yep. Kicks and taps and rolls. In the morning it seems to be GO (bottom right) while at night it’s more BO (top left). Seeing them on the ultrasound I was amazed I didn’t feel more and a little nervous about what I’d be feeling in a few months. Will I ever sleep again…?
What I miss? Sleeping on my stomach. Very much so. Cravings. Hunger. Not barfing.
Food cravings? Not really. Still liking grapefruit juice but that backed off. I crave nothing. Actually – I crave the ability to not *have* to eat. lol
Food aversions? Everything still at some point. But juice.
What I’m looking forward to: Wanting to eat… The next ultrasound to determine the sex and if they really are identical. Our first tech swears she saw two placentas and now no one is sure. The wait is KILLING me.
Milestones? Second tri!
Things I wish people knew: Everyone is asking what we want now that they might be identical. In all honesty, I don’t really know anymore. Part of me would be a little sad if we never had another little girl, but then I’d be ok with Bella being my only. If she was a boy I know I’d be hoping SO hard for girls. But a bigger part of me would be sadder if we never had a little boy this time. And a third part of me (many parts) just wants fraternal still so we can have a chance at one of each. But I do know that no matter what that screen shows Sam and I are going to be thrilled and the other parts will just disappear.
Favorite Pin of the week: Look look! It’s just for them! From this adorable Etsy shop:
I am just – no words for the perfectness of this outfit. I’ve already written her to order them.
Bella’s corner: Bella hasn’t stopped talking about getting to see the babies move on the screen since we went to the last appointment. She’s also getting to be such a huge help with things around here. Days I feel ok we try to do as much as we can; zoo, park, store, Gymboree. She has started to talk about them being “outside Mama’s tummy” one day, but for now they are still her “inside babies.”
