Due Date December 15, 2016
How far along: 10 weeks and 1 day
Babies are the size of: strawberries, prunes or kumquats
Maternity clothes: I have sported a few maternity shirts at work since mine are all snug. On the weekends though, it’s all maternity all the time.
Stretch marks: no new ones
Symptoms: I am still tired and in bed by 8:30 and the gas has stuck around. I am constantly burping. Besides these, I can feel a bump now since the babies are out of my pelvis and up below my bellybutton. That being said, I can no longer suck in the stomach so I am calling it the baby belly now even though it is not ALL baby. J
Sleep: Sleep is not happening…I am up every 2 hours to pee, and then I have to roll over constantly because my hips are so sore from the PIO injections. Not have restful nights here.
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: Wedding rings are still on but my right hand infinity ring had to come off already.
Movement: After our ultrasound today I know they are dancing around in there! It will be awhile until I can feel it though…but I can’t wait!
Food cravings: carrots and dill dip, popsicles, tuna melts…interesting combination.
Anything make you sick or queasy: Nothing is really making me queasy and I have not thrown up at all thank goodness! I do have times where I just don’t feel hungry or I am starving, there is no middle ground. I do gag a ton if I talk too much, have too much saliva, post nasal drip from allergies or just breath the wrong way.
Miss anything: Being able to order anything at restaurants! It has turned into… “nope, can’t have that because it has this, that either…or that” I miss gorgonzola cheese, sushi, iced coffee and slightly pink steaks and burgers!
Labor signs: Not for a long while yet!
Mood: Great most of the time! I have my grumpy moments and I have very little patience by the afternoons at work.
Boy or girl: Don’t know but we are dying to find out! Not for another 8ish weeks! I wonder if my lack of intuition on this matter means that there are one of each in there.
Best moment of the week: Today’s ultrasound visit. Even though our regular Dr. doesn’t have the technology that our RE had, it was so comforting to see them today! They are now too big to both fit on the screen together! We could see both hearts flickering away, though won’t be able to hear them for a few more weeks. They were also moving today! One was dancing around in there so much it was hard to get a good look. Even though the visit was disappointing in that we couldn’t see them as clearly as we have in the past and we didn’t get any new pictures, we are at 10 weeks and they are both going strong! Maybe I can relax a little now.
Looking forward to: Our 13 week appointment! My sister in law just had hers with the same Dr. and has an ultrasound picture where you can clearly see the profile! Looks like a baby instead of a gummy bear! Can’t wait to get our first glimpse of these two little faces!
Purchases for babies: Nothing yet, it is so hard for me to make purchases without knowing the genders! But I think we will have to start making choices on things like strollers, cribs and furniture. Any twin stroller suggestions are welcome!
Purchases for mom: 2 pair of maternity leggings, maternity jeans, jean shorts and 4 shirts to get me through the school year! I don’t know why regular clothes aren’t like this- so much more comfortable!!
