10 weeks!

I’m super excited for a TWO reasons..
1. We made it to the double digits!! LOL
2. You got a belly shot AND an updated chalkboard. (YEA!)

haaaaaa….. productivity at it’s finest, yea?

We had our second appointment yesterday and I literally had a 4 person entourage. My mom, little sister, and two nieces. My sister and the girls were so excited to see the babies on the sonogram machine! Lol. It was cute to hear their reactions! It was also super sweet to watch them move their arms and kick their legs! You read about the developmental and size changes that take place week by week but to see the differences from one appointment to the next is miraculous. I mean, the last time I saw them, they were just dots with a heartbeat. This week, they have arms and legs! I can’t wait to see them again at the end of the month! They’re getting so big!

How are we feeling??!?!?!
Ehhhhh….. Not good. The vomiting is back. And, so is just not feeling well. Which makes me feel so incredibly bad for the girls because we haven’t been outside, they play solo while I lay on the couch or in bed laughing at their conversations and (currently) giving rules and explaining cards of Monopoly.

(There are plenty of negative things I can say about this picture…. but at least two that are so very right about it.
Shout out to my photographer, Aliya. And, to getting over myself and choosing to take a pic no matter how I look or feel!)

 What’s going on with the bump?!?!
Nothing much. Still getting bigger and looks kinda pointy. Getting lots of love from Ari and rubs from mama. Also found out that my amniotic fluid is starting to taste like the foods I eat, which I think is an interesting funfact. (How did doctor’s figure that one out?) So……… Maybe this is where mamas say that they loved a certain food & the babe loves it, too? Or, vice versa with aversions? We’ll see.

So, how are you feeling?!
I’m a bit ashamed to say this and feeling a bit of mama-guilt but it’s my truth.
I’m finally starting to attach to the babes. The 9 weeks, literally up until my appointment yesterday, I was terrified of losing both or one of them. Back here, I talked about how Dr. O says that there was a possibility that one could vanish. I was on pins and needles, worrying and praying…. concerned that days I felt good meant that maybe maybe my body recognized that the hormones weren’t necessary anymore. My excitement was always followed by a shadow of fear and uncertainty.
Now, being ten weeks, although I know that anything could still happen at anytime, I’m much more comfortable and at ease. The risk of vanishing twin syndrome is past, the babies are developing really well,  and we’re two weeks from leaving the first third of the pregnancy behind us! (WOW!) Thank God!

Anything else?
I’m only up 2lbs….. and, by the end of the first trimester, I’m supposed to be up 10. Apparently, this isn’t uncommon in the first trimester due to morning sickness and just not feeling well. So, okay. Even though I knew that I hadn’t gained much weight, I was disappointed when I stepped on the scale. I should have been a bit more grateful since I really thought I hadn’t gained any! I’m hoping to feel better soon and looking forward to an increase in appetite!

From mommy….
Y’all are so stinking cute! It was so fun to watch you guys move, kick,  and float around mama’s belly! Whoever flipped around while we were checking on the other, made it hard for the doctor to measure you but both of you are almost an inch and a half! lol. You guys are making us so happy and proud to watch you grow and develop!

They say ‘all the sexy mamas’ and tell us that ‘they want to see sexy bodies go bump, bump, bump’ … perfectly applicable, right? (LMBO!)
