14 weeks pregnant with twins {and a belly shot}

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.

16 week twin pics!

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.”

14 weeks with BO & GO & Bella!

  1. How exciting for you! I always thought having twins would be so fun. Congratulations on reaching the 2nd trimester! I can very much relate to the sadness of not not being able to sleep on your stomach. It is so worth it though. Congrats on your sweet babies!

  2. I love the buy one get one free onesies. True story- my mother in law is a fraternal twin. Her parents kept the hospital bill, on the bill it says extra baby- $5.

  3. Look at you all cute and baby bumpy! Can’t wait to see your little ones in those onsies – how perfect!

    I know what you mean about the gender. Having all boys I really really wanted a girl this time but God has other plans for us and this baby has been a blessing in disguise over and over and over again.

  4. You look great! I love how Bella is in the picture with you. A happy little family (minus Sam) in front of the tub! I love the BOGO onesies… can’t wait to see yours in them (in another 23-26 weeks)!

  5. You look great! I wish we had met at blissdom, too. It might be a good idea to try some vitamin E oil to help prevent or mitigate stretch marks.

  6. Oh my heavens, Bella’s inside babies. that makes me tear up. So sweet.

  7. Congrats on Second Tri! So exciting! :)

  8. You’re too cute!

  9. Hello there!
    So excited to be back and to hear your good news on being pregnant with twins. Congrats! Looking forward to catching up with your blog.

  10. Woohoo for second tri! And I love the onesies and your nickname for them. So adorable.

  11. You look wonderful. I myself have two sets of Fraternal twins. First set is 10yrs old (girls) and the second set is 3yrs old (boy/girls). Both times were a shock. I will admit I hated being pregnant. It was hard, but soooo worth it in the end. Love seeing the relationship the kids have with one another. Also interesting to see the boy/girl set – I think they have a stronger bond. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. I wish you the best!!

  12. Lookin’ good! Yay for second tri!

  13. She’s so sweet!!

  14. I am about a week behind you, 13 weeks with fraternal twins. This is my first pregnancy. I love your blog, it makes me laugh and I can relate to so many of your musings.

    Question: we are not going to find out the genders of the babies beforehand. Is that insane? I’m beginning to need to breathe into a paper bag every time I think about it.

  15. Great Diana, Eat healthy and always keep a awesome smiley on your face. :) Hayes

  16. girlfriend, how gorgeous are you?! seriously. whenever I see people like you out and about looking like that I turn to my husband and say “that is NOT normal so don’t get your hopes up.”

  17. Thanks for sharing the post, and the adorable pic! I am 14 weeks as well, but don’t really have the cute little bump yet. My jeans are getting snug and I can tell undressed, but no one else can really tell. Good luck with your ultrasound.

  18. How cute little one :)

  19. I had my 14 week appointment and it was the very first appointment! We don’t get to do an ultra sound until Monday. But I swear I can feel this baby kick already. I am starving all the time. I have a 10 month old daughter and things are just completely different this time. I wasn’t able to feel her kick until after 24 weeks. My belly is already the size I was when I was 26 weeks pregnant with her and I am only 14 weeks! I am 20 times more emotional than I was last time. I cannot sleep. My back pain is double, maybe even triple to my first pregnancy. Could I be having twins?! The doctor said she felt more than just 14 weeks of baby!
    I don’t think I can wait until Monday!

  20. I am 14 weeks with twins and also feel all food is gross.
