How Far Along: 12 weeks
(ignore the hideous gold shower. we had to choose to redo our kitchen/baths or do IVF....easy choice)
And look at that belly. I mean for real. I don't know if it is the twin pregnancy thing or the second pregnancy thing but my pants don't fit. Like at all.
This was at 11 weeks. Blakely wanted to take a picture of the babies...she talks about them a lot. She has started calling them her baby budder and baby sister and I nearly die every single time.
Best Moment of the Week: We checked on the babes the other day and they were so freaking adorable. They were spinning and flipping around in there. Lonnie and I giggled the whole time he was scanning me. I can't wait to see them again!
Movement: nope but can't wait for that!
Symptoms: Wellllll let me see here. I hate to even type this out but I didn't throw up the past 2 days. And I even had a little bit more energy. I know this because I didn't take a nap which is crazy because Blakely was spending time at my mom's so I had the perfect opportunity for one. Before that I was throwing up at least once a day and nauseated 24/7. I was having dreams about throwing up. When Blakely would get up in the middle of the night to pee (don't even get me started on that one) I would be dry heaving while she was peeing...not fun. But I hope I am turning the corner and am going to get some energy soon because we have a lot to do to our house.
I pee all the time and I have started having headaches. I had those with Blakely for what seemed like the whole time.
Food Cravings/Aversions: The only real craving I have had is a lemon meringue pie. I really like sour/sweet and that sounds so freaking good. I found one in town but it wasn't that great. I am hoping my MIL will make me one soon! For the last 2 months I have had an aversion to ALL food except sour apple blow pops. Those things are bomb and I could eat on them all day long. They are also the only thing that makes the nausea better for a little bit. Other than that I just need to eat a little something every couple of hours to prevent that OMG I AM GOING TO PASS OUT GIVE ME FOOD RIGHT NOW feeling.
What I Miss: caffeine
What I'm Looking Forward to: feeling these babes move in there. I felt Blakely for sure at about 18 weeks so I wonder when I will feel these two. And what is it like to feel 2 moving in there? So pumped for that. I am also looking forward to visiting Lonnie's family for Thanksgiving this week. We rarely get to see them so Blakely is going to have so much fun with her cousins.
Milestones: I am almost completely weaned off all of my medication. I am so very happy about that! I am taking one injection every other day and if everything looks good on my lab on Wednesday then I get to stop that one. My booty will be so happy. It is so bruised up and painful. Actually it is numb but hurts like hell...weird. After that I am guessing I will be done with the clinic in Denver. Happy about that but emotional about it as well.
We have started putting up our Christmas tree and I can't tell you how fun that has been. Blakely is really into it and wants to help with everything. She is fascinated by the lights and I teared up yesterday watching her stare at the tree. She is just so grown up these days and decorating for Christmas with my child is one of those things I have waited my whole life for but didn't even realize it.
I hope everyone has a wonderful short week!
