According to C, I am "NUTSO!" He left early from the OB appointment to work, so we weren't able to discuss how it went until he got home. So what he heard Dr. S say and what I heard her say, I guess, were two completely different things. C said he heard Dr. S say, "in pregnancy we like 30 lbs, but with twins it varies." C says, I completely tuned out the other half of what she said! I seriously do NOT remember that! However, I am going to listen to my husband, because he is not hormonal and pregnant. I am going to give Dr. S the benefit of the doubt and give her a second chance. I am taking advice from, a friend. I don't think I'll be taking advice about diet from someone who doesn't "walk the walk." I'm sure I know more about a healthy diet than her. I am a health teacher by trade and a personal trainer :) I know I'm being healthy so that's all there is to it! I appreciate all of your advice and comments! Thank you so much!
This weekend C and I are going on a mini baby moon to San Diego. We haven't gone on any vacation since October and we usually get out of town every other month! Its been quite the process to finally get to this point and we definitely need some quality time! We are spending Saturday at the spa and then going to Sea World on Sunday (praying it doesn't rain!).
Here is my weekly update!
How Far Along: 11 weeks 1 day
How Big Are the Babies: Babies are now the size of a lime!
Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through it. But fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds, and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future
Total Weight Gain: I'm guessing 7. I haven't weighed myself for a few days... I was over it after my last OB appointment.
Maternity Clothes: YUP! Also sporting the belly band! But, officially my pants will NOT button! I was shocked when I put a pair of jeans on this week and they were about an inch from closing!
Sleep: Been waking up EARLY, like 5 am. I get up to pee and then can't fall back to sleep. Must be why I'm so tired right now!
GENDER: 5 more weeks!!! March 23rd is the BIG reveal!
Movement: Hopefully three more weeks! I read that with some twin pregnancy's you can feel movement as early as 14 weeks! I'm sure it all depends on where the placenta is... but fingers are crossed for 14 weeks!
Food Cravings: I haven't really had any this week. But, I am enjoying more normal foods! Veggies are back on the menu!
What I Miss: Vino Rosso... red wine! A nice glass of Pinot Nior... my fav!
What I'm looking forward to: Making it to 12 weeks. My mom is working next Thursday (I'll be 12 weeks exactly) and I am going to visit her at her hospital. We'll do an ultrasound, just for fun... not because I'm Paranoid :)
Milestones: I have a lot...
1) I officially can't button my pants!
2) My babies are actual fetus's now!
3) I had my FIRST tummy ultrasound this week!
4) We were able to hear the babies heartbeats via Doppler!
5) ALSO, seeing them move around for the first time was absolutely amazing!
Symptoms: Okay, I have been feeling REALLY good this week, until yesterday :-( I felt like I was getting my energy back then I started getting a headache, again, and have been EXHAUSTED since then. Its 1:30pm right now and I'm BARELY keeping my eyes open. I need a nap!
