15 weeks pregnant with twins! {and a pic}

April 3, 2012

BO & GO are the size of a…? Apple! This is BabyCenter’s 16 week as they only do twin pics every 4.

16 week twin pics!

How far along? 15 weeks and 2 days.

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 idea yet. I have a scale but I know it’s off from the one at the Dr. However I don’t know how much it’s off so I just don’t get on it since it’s not accurate. I’m hoping to be up at least 3-5lbs at this next appointment. Since I have around 45 to gain still… (give or take)

Stretch Marks? Not yet!

Sleep? Honestly, Bella needs to stop waking up every night. I know this may sound insane since we’re having two and the chances I’ll get a full night of sleep after they are here are slim to none – but it’s like – I could get a full night now if she’d just stop losing that darn paci in her bed.

Sickness? Better. <---RIGHT?! Yep, much better. Still have the Zofran 3 x a day, still some food aversions (and when it hits it hits HARD), but most days are ok. Thank goodness.

Movement? Yep. More and more of them pressing against me and feeling one little bump on the right or left as they snuggle in. Tiny kicks when I sit down.

What I miss? Well, hmmm. I think my energy. I have bursts of it now, but with the pelvic pain it’s hard to balance wanting to do something and needing to lay down.

Food cravings? I haven’t eaten at a McDonalds in 3 years or more. We avoid them and their horrid advertising to children (don’t think this means they aren’t delicious – they are). But – I’ve been craving a fish fillet like you wouldn’t believe. Last night I crawled into bed and thought about it. I think about it all day. I need one like a crack addict needs a fix. Crazy. And french fries (from anywhere).

Food aversions? Meat. Anything that is a leftover or old grosses me out.

What I’m looking forward to: The next ultrasound! Knowing the sex(es)!

Milestones? Second tri!

Things I wish people knew: I don’t want to be reminded constantly how big I’m going to get. I understand I will be much bigger. Huge. But for now, I’m enjoying how I still fit into my regular maternity clothes. When the time comes for me to wear small tents and such, I will. I also am annoyed hearing how regular clothes should still fit until I give birth if I get them a little larger. Twins people. Twins. Regular clothes don’t fit me now. Any of them. Even dresses are starting to feel tight and ride up.

Worries: this could be a page long but I’ll keep it short. The pelvic pain worries me. I have a call into my Dr about it, since with Bella it turned into my cervix being 90% effaced at 31 weeks, and my uterus is already measuring 22+ this time. But – for now I’m just taking it easy. When I feel pain, I lay or slow down.

Favorite Pin of the week:

Bella’s corner: Lately Bella has been wanting to snuggle – or as she calls it “snummle.” Which is strange because she has never, ever been a cuddly child. Really. Not a fun co-sleeper, not a skin on skin kind of infant – she loved her alone time a lot. Always has. Which makes a lot of things easier on me, but there are times I wish she’d just chill out with me. So this past week she’s just wanted to crawl up a lot on me and pat the babies, kiss them, talk about things; it’s very special. As I write this she is laying on my leg with a pillow cuddled in a blanket.

15 weeks pregnant and off to dinner with Sam and my sister.

    Hiya! I am pregnant with twins too – about a week behind you and I have a 2 yr old little boy. I can so relate to some of your posts! I am also taking medication to stop the vomiting and cant stop taking it or the vomiting comes back! Not sure what the deal is with that now the 1st Tri is over! NOT FAIR!
    Love your blog and I will keep checking back to see how you are doing!

    My 7 year old just likes talking to my tummy. He’ll say things like “Hi Bean (that’s what we call this one until we find out a gender) are you ok in there?” or “I wish you could come out now so we can play!” He still trying to figure out that the baby has to stay in for about another 20 weeks.

    So glad the Bella takes an interest in BO and GO. I bet she can’t wait to see them either!

    So glad to hear your sickness has eased up a bit! I’ve been super nauseous for 5 days with a horrible stomach virus and it makes me totally dread the next pregnancy. LOVE the peapod necklace! 😉

    You look wonderful!

    PS. Toddlers not sleeping is brutal! I was ready to yank Chessa’s paci when she started losing it a while ago. Now she goes to bed with no less than four, yes FOUR, pacis in her crib.

      I am SO over the paci deal. So over it. If it wasn’t for the potty training starting, I’d have done that first. I hate them.

      And honestly, I’m starting to think potty training will be much easier than taking the paci away. :/ That’s how attached she is to it. It’s ridiculous.

    You look so great. So happy to hear the nausea is starting to go away.

    My son was like that. He’s generally a very independent little guy but got very clingy during my pregnancy. It started around 6 weeks which was way before he could possibly know anything but my midwife says little kids are very intuitive.

    Also, I never put him to bed with less than three pacis and usually it was more like five or six. Really cuts down on the middle of the night paci searches.

    Get a binker or paci clip for Bella and you’ll get some sleep.

      Not sure what a binker is? but at 2 1/2 Bella just rips the paci clip off her. She’s brutal with them. 🙂

    My 5 yr old won’t stop rubbing my belly. My 2 yr old tries to sit on it (ow). I’m sure Bella is starting to catch on to all the new baby talk and starting to feel the normal sibling jealousy. I love reading your updates!

    So glad you are feeling a bit better! My guess is two sweet girls!
