12 Weeks


How Far Along: 12 weeks
How Big are the Babies? The size of plums.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Down about 6 pounds. It appears I may be finally gaining some weight back. I still doubt I'll gain the 3-4lbs in the first trimester that all the books talk about, but I'm ok with that. 
Maternity Clothes: I'm starting to build a maternity wardrobe. For the most part I don't NEED it yet, but I haven't seen a ton of things that I love, so I'm slowly picking up things as I find them. 
Gender: I can't wait to find out!! I'm crossing my fingers that we can tell at 15 weeks. 
Movement: I felt a weird swishing feeling yesterday while I was laying on the couch- it could have been a gas bubble but it just felt different. 
Sleep: I sleep great most of the time, but I've been waking up REALLY early in the morning and having a hard time going back to sleep which usually lead to an annoying morning headache.  
Belly button in or out? In.
What I miss: Nothing! I'm in awe of my body everyday!
Milestones: So happy to be 12 weeks, and even more happy to be off all hormone supplements! That me no more PROGESTERONE!!! I'm down to just my thyroid medication, prenatal and DHA capsule. 
Food Cravings:  Nothing significant- fruit mostly.
Aversions: Still just eggs.
Symptoms: Pretty much the same... nausea if I let myself get too hungry, fatigue, dizziness, constipation, sore nipples, a healthy dose of heartburn after eating pretty much anything and the newest is hunger in the night. 
Best Moment this week: Buying new furniture for our living room- time to get a few things done before these babies get here!
Funny Moment: Crying at EVERYTHING. Have you seen the new-ish pampers commercial? wow.
Tip of the Week: Keep drinking that dang water- I am horrible at this!
What I'm looking forward to: Feeling my belly grow more and more. And, I'm counting down the days until our next ultrasound... THREE.MORE.WEEKS.

That was my problem, I felt movement and would second guess myself thinking it was gas.

Glad to hear everything is progressing nicely. Have you read Dr. Luke's book on pregnancy with multiples? I just perused it over the weekend good info. Hope you continue to have an uneventful pregnancy.

I'm a little jealous that at 12 weeks you might already be feeling movement? I hit 14 weeks tomorrow and am SO EXCITED to feel movement over the next month or so...but so far nothing! Maybe I should pay better attention...

It probably is movement you are feeling - I've heard that with twins you can feel them a lot sooner - it's so exciting :) Honestly for me the movement was really one of the most amazing parts of pregnancy.
