How Far Along: 19 weeks
Size of Babies: the babies are the size of mangos - baby A weighs 10 oz and baby B weighs 9 oz!
Gender: We're having a BOY and a GIRL
Total Weight Gain/Loss: When I went last Tuesday, I had gained 5lbs making my total weight gain 6 pounds! My doctor said I was doing great, but to eat WHENEVER I was hungry. I wish he could spend a day with me! Ha! I won't know about my weight gain until I go back March 9th! Mark is continuing to keep the scales hidden. I told him that I am starting to really want to kick myself for ever posting my "weight gain" on the blog. I have a feeling I am really going to regret it! From everything thing I've read about twins, I can expect to start really gaining weight in the next few weeks.
Maternity Clothes: LOVE them!! I no longer fit into any of my pre-pregnancy jeans.
Movement: They are just moving like crazy! Some days I am absolutely worthless because I just sit and let them go crazy! It's just the best feeling in the world!
Sleep: Still just okay! I bought a body pillow and it's helped a little.
What I Miss: CAFFEINE
Cravings: Still really no cravings! When I'm hungry, I'm just HUNGRY!
Symptoms: Hair is still out of control! I've started having a few leg cramps, but nothing too bad! I hope I haven't made being pregnant sound horrible. I really love it! Like, can't wait to do it again love it!
Best Moment of the Week: We were watching the Duke/NC basketball game (yes, I was actually watching it!) and I could feel one of the babies kicking like crazy. I thought it was a long shot, but I made Mark feel, and he could feel the baby!! It was a really exciting moment because I have felt so bad that he could never feel them. It hasn't happened since, but I know soon enough it will happen again!
We have been crazy busy this past week, so I am super late posting this. Mark and I have been talking about taking a "babymoon" before it's too late for me to travel. Last month Mark came home and suggested we go to Hawaii. So, we leave day after tomorrow for a week long vacation to O'ahu! I can't wait! I am so nervous about flying for so long, and being that far from my doctor, but he cleared me for travel, so I'm going to have fun! We are staying at a resort where a lot of the tv show, LOST, was filmed. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am probably more excited about that than the actual trip. I apologize in advance if all of my posts about the trip involve LOST references! And yes, I have booked a 5 hour LOST tour of the island.
