Week 23

September 12, 2011

Well, we had another ultrasound today and the DVD did not burn correct again.  We don’t even have pictures.  I am sending the DVD back to the clinic so that maybe they can get it to work.  We think it just needs to be finalized.

The twins are doing well.  Growing like crazy, good, strong heartbeats.

I have been somewhat hesitant to post pictures of me and my belly.  As you all know, I had a very rough first trimester and lost weight, which made me quite self-conscious about the way I look.  When people ask me if I am pregnant, and I say “yes, with twins” they always say “you’re so small”…. which makes me feel like people think I am not taking care of my babies.  I am finally putting on weight but I still have 1 – 2 bad days a week where I puke 2-4 times a day.  So basically I put on a few pounds, then lose a few pounds.  Our doctor has put me on Prevacid to reduce the acid in my stomach.  She thinks that my stomach is over-producing acid and that is what is making me get sick so much.  I hope this is going to do the trick.  I am sick of getting sick!

So here is a picture of me in our backyard when we got home from our doctors appointment.

  1. You look great! Remember that you were incredibly thin from being so sick, so that is quite a substantial bump you have there now. 🙂 I think I have just got to the point of waddling… And was ridiculously pleased with myself when I figured out how I could cut my own toenails yesterday. You have all of that to look forward to! 😉

  2. Oh, with my first I didn’t hardly show at all til way on toward 25 weeks. And even with my later babies most wt gain was in the last few weeks. …And, I know its hard but with mothering, you pretty much have to get used to the stipid things people say. Usually, they are trying to be complimentary (you look so small = you’re not a fatty) but its not going to stop with pregnancy. I still get unwanted advice all the time (‘Didn’t you want a girl’ -umm, it wasn’t really up to me; You should keep trying–yeah, not unless I want to be committed). But really, people aren’t usually judging. You are beautiful –anyone who knows you at all knows what youve been thru for those babies and that you *will* and *do* take great care of them.

  3. Hey Tanya, stumbled onto your page here today. Thought it might be on the dukes page. Anyway take care and yes you do look thin but you watch before you know it you will get that weight. The ultra sounds are intersting and seem like happy children already. Cecilia
