Note: This post was written at week 10 of pregnancy. I should be caught up with real-life posting soon. Meaning you will see a few week updates within the same week as we catch up.
Wahoo this is the first weekly update! I am technically rockin’ 10 weeks over here and you will be reading this when I am at 14 weeks since we waited to get to the 2nd trimester before making it public. Whew, did any of that make sense? I did keep a log weekly of everything I went through so you will not miss a thing. Especially with a twin pregnancy there is TONS going on!
I will forever remember week 6 as the week my wonderful morning sickness started or what I like to call my all day even waking up in the middle of the night sickness. Even at 10 weeks I am still sick – even right now as I am writing this I am trying not to throw up. But I will get more into that in the 10 week update.
Week 6 was the first real week I knew I was expecting twins. We found out 5 weeks and 5 days. I will have a whole other post about it but I knew I was having twins already – there were signs the biggest one was a huge positive on the pregnancy test close to a week before my missed period.
Here is my little ones at 6 weeks and 3 days for your enjoyment 🙂
Finding out you are having twins is a shock that takes a while to wear off. I remember thinking I am going to need a lot more diapers and realizing that my dream nursery would have to change. But I am so happy that I have two growing in me – it is just going to take a lot more planning.
How far along: 6 Weeks
Total weight gain: none
Maternity clothes: pants are getting tight because of the twins – I have switched to yoga pants
Stretch marks: Nope – though I am getting a bit of a bump
Bump: A small one
Sleep: No problem sleeping
Best moment of this week: Realizing that I am having twins and hearing their heart beats for the first time. Baby A was 116 and Baby B was 118
Miss anything: Not Really – not feeling too great but I would love to have a Dr. Pepper
Movement: No movement yet
Food cravings: Salty EVERYTHING. I was all about Ruffles – it seemed to be the only thing to could eat without throwing up
Anything making you queasy or sick: EVERYTHING. I cannot get near the kitchen
Have you started to show yet: Not Really
Genders: We have an idea
Labor signs: Nope
Belly button in or out: In 🙂
Wedding rings on or off: On 🙂
Happy or moody most of the time: I am happy 🙂 Worried but happy. Just waiting for July to get here
Looking forward to: Getting out of the first trimester which seems a million miles away
