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