The goood news is yesterday marks 14 weeks for me and I am technically out of the 1st trimester!! I've been begging for the first trimester to be over, with some tiny hope that it will bring relief. I'm not totally there yet (Zofran is my best friend!) but I think I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Hooray!!
As soon as I found out we were having twins, at 7 weeks, I started reading everything I could about them. The first thing I found out was that almost every single person said they started showing quite significantly by 8 or 9 weeks. That was just totally bizarre to me considering I didn't really start showing until 4ish months with Bryson. So, I think I'm the only person ever to start documenting weekly pictures at 7 weeks. Ha!!
I started skipping pictures because it was kind of at a stand sill and the pictures were boring. Ha! Wait...maybe I shouln't say that out loud.... ;)
sono and belly
sono and babies!
Michael couldn't make it to this appointment, so my mom came with me. It was just supposed to be a regular appointment to listen to the heart beats, but my doctor is fantastic and rolled in their old sono machine so we could see them again!! :) They haven't labeled them "Baby A, Baby B" yet, but the one on the left was laying horizonally and bouncing up and down and moving the entire time while the other one was chill and mello and just wiggled off and on :)
We made a last minute appointment to check a few things out on Monday (technically 14 weeks, but oh well) and we had another quick sono. The same exact thing happened with the babies! The one on the left was movin' and groovin' and the one on the right must have been asleep because there was a strong heart beat, but only a few wiggles. It's funny to see their personalities already :)
Also, I know it's early, but I'm quite certain that I have felt them kick a few times!! It's really exciting!! :)
Hello 2nd Trimester!!
The pure fact that I'm having twins has put me in the "high risk" category (another thing that scares me...those 2 words :/ )
I'll be seeing a high risk doctor along side my regular Ob. My first appoinment is on the 19th and apparently it's going to be an hour long indepth sonogram. I'm kinda excited and kinda scared about it. I've heard from a couple people that they'll tell you everything that you don't need to know that will scare you to death. I'm trying to prepare myself for it, but it's hard.
The upside to being "high risk" is that we'll have mare opportunities to see our little miracles as opposed to the 3 sonograms we had with Bryson. Ha! I've already had 3 sonos in the 1st trimester this time around!! :)
I'll start real weekly posts soon because I definitely have a little pouch now! :)
