16 weeks pregnant with twins {and oh, the pic}

April 12, 2012

Blerg, this post is so late but I got it up here finally! This week has been full of big changes and fun things:

BO & GO are the size of a…?  Avocado AND THEY CAN HEAR!!! I have no idea why this is such a big deal to me but I’ve totally been waiting for this week.

16 week twin pics!

How far along?. 16 weeks 4 days. 

Maternity clothes? Everything. Wearing it all. I can honestly say there are things that will not fit me in a few months. How terrifying is that? 😉

Weight Gain? At the Dr last week for a quick check up I was up a half pound. Putting me at a total of 5.5 out of 50. I’m sure I’ll be up more in 2 weeks at the rate I’ve been eating lately.

Stretch Marks? Not yet!

Sleep? OMG. It’s pure torture. I hurt SO bad down there that for some reason sleep just kills me. Pillows, side laying, it’s all terrible. I’ve learned sleeping on my back offers some relief but this means I snore so poor Sam is up all night.

Sickness? Yesterday I ate breakfast and then barfed it all up into the sink. And then had to run the garbage disposal. And then barfed again. Ew.

Movement? Yep, more rolls and pushing (what are they trying to do in there?) than anything else. I feel little hard lumps all the time where they snuggle against me.

What I miss? Stomach sleeping again. Being able to roll over and get up without it taking a ridiculous amount of effort.

Food cravings? 

It was terrible and yet so delicious at the same time. Also chili. I had chili I made for breakfast, lunch, and dinner yesterday. Obviously dessert was heartburn.

Food aversions? Chinese food. Sam keeps mentioning it and I don’t want anything to do with it. Except sushi which I can’t have anyway.

What I’m looking forward to: SQUEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The BIG ultrasound!!!!

Milestones? They can hear us!

Things I wish people knew: I do have a preference for which type of twins we have, but most of it is purely out of the risk factor that comes with each.

Worries: Not much lately. Right? Where did Diana go? I guess blogging at Babble and here and all that comes with that leaves me very little time to stress out.

Bella’s corner: Our gymboree teacher asked Bella about me having twins yesterday and she put her hands on my stomach and said, “Two inside babies! Mommy’s tummy.” So I died. She’s been a handful lately, but I realized a lot of it is me, my stress that I put on her. Yesterday I decided to really start to find a routine to balance both time with her and time working and we did much better. Her potty training is going really well, when we are at home during the day she wears pants and never has an accident.

Here’s the weekly pic –

Oh, and I’ve popped. Can you tell? lol

    You look beautiful! Isn’t it so weird to feel little kicks again? It is for me. Fish makes me gag, but I’m really into cheeseburgers and fries!

    I’m glad you’re getting an appetite back even if it craves fish from McDonalds. You can have veggie sushi…it may help stifle that craving. Although not pregnant, I have been craving chili too…wanna go to Sonic together and get chili cheese tots?

    You look great. I can’t wait to hear what Bo and Go are.
