How Big are the Babies? They are the size of turnips or onions.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: ...and here we go! I'm up 1 pound since retrieval. It looks like I've started the pound a week trend.
Maternity Clothes: I'm wearing all maternity on the bottom (unless I'm wearing sweats) and just a few maternity tops.
Movement: These babies are starting to move! In general I've given up caffeine- but maybe once a month I'll have a soda with a meal (usually tacos- what is better than Pepsi with a wedge of lime and Mexican food?!?!). I hadn't had one since I'd started feeling them- lets just say, these babies were AWAKE for awhile.
Sleep: It is hit or miss, but in general it is getting a little better- or maybe I'm just getting more used to the interrupted sleep. I've at least been able to stay in bed all night instead of moving to the couch halfway through the night to get more comfortable.
Belly button in or out? It is in, but everyday become a little more sure that it will come out at some point... or at the very least become very, very shallow. It is becoming very sensitive around the edge where skin that was once inside is now outside.
What I miss: Life before heartburn :)
Milestones: Being sure I'm feeling at least baby B. We know that baby A's placenta is anterior- and while I think I've felt him, it is certainly a less obvious feeling.
Food Cravings: Brownies... and they were SO good!
Aversions: Eggs are still off the list.
Symptoms: Nausea when I get hungry, the never ending stuffed up nose, occasional heartburn, tailbone pain and overall fatigue.
Best Moment this week: Getting a TON of stuff done around the house to prepare for the babies, our new couch came, we bought the dresser/changing table for the nursery AND of course feeling these little buggers move!!!Funny Moment: My memory is garbage, but I can't remember any specific examples.
Tip of the Week: Don't eat too much in one sitting. I felt awful after breakfast one day over the weekend, and realized it was because I ate too much. Even though it seems so weird to me to just be constantly eating, I feel SO much better when I do. My purse pretty much ALWAYS has some sort of snack in it these days and as soon as I begin to feel even a tiny bit off I eat something. AND, keep drinking water!
