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.
Bryan was out of town camping and did not go to this doctors appointment. My friend Chris drove me to the appointment and she was so excited to see the ultrasounds. We asked the tech to record the scans like usual, however, she was a new employee and said that she did not really know how to use the AV equipment. Another tech came in and set up the DVD to record…. or so we thought.
Our kiddos are very active. We watched the little boy kick his sister in the head just like 2 weeks ago, then we saw her raise her hand and push him in the face. It was fun to see and we all laughed that she was already standing up for herself!
All their measurements looks good. They both have almost tripled in weight in the last 2 1/2 weeks. He weights about 13oz, and she is 11oz.
When Bryan came home from his trip I was so excited to show him the video of our little girl pushing her brother in the face. We put the DVD in the computer and it was 36 minutes of blackness. Total Bummer!
I have been doing good. I still have bad days, but only about 1 a week. So much better than all day every day! I am putting on weight and I definitely notice my stomach is getting bigger each day. I really love the changes that my body is going through. The kids kick a LOT and Bryan loves feeling them.
Wow – We are now into month 5! And these little guys are growing like crazy. We had another appt and ultrasound today and it is such an emotional time for me. Our little girl (Baby B) likes to wave at us, so I was laying there and waving to the screen saying “Hi little girl” with tears in my eyes. Our little boy (Baby A) likes to kick his sister in the head.
During this ultrasound the tech did a bunch of measurements and it appears they are both growing exactly as they should be. It looks like both sides of their brains are developing well and their hearts have all their chambers. She (Baby B) is about 4 oz and he (Baby A) is about 5 oz.
