I’m 17 weeks pregnant with the twins today 🙂
Not too much has changed this week. Thankfully, I’m still feeling pretty good!
Yesterday we had an appointment and got to see them 🙂 They were wiggling all over the place and kicking their feet. Super cute. The doctor put it in 3 and/or 4d so we could see them better and I love that. It’s just SO crazy to see two little ones squirming around in there!
They are both head down. On Tuesday, I felt lots of kicks up high. This must have been when they were flipping or something because I’ve not felt anything like it since. Yes, I’m ready for lots. I love it.
When I was laying down, my doctor said my uterus was about the size of what it would be at 24 weeks with a singleton. I actually don’t have a picture from when I was 24 weeks (that I know of) when I was pregnant with Cohen. That was around the time we found out about his heart and I wasn’t up for much of anything. Here is my post from week 25 with him. It was the first time I raise my shirt I think. I dunno if I will do bare belly this time around. If I do, I suppose it will need to be soon as I really should refrain the larger I get, I’m sure.
The babies are each about 5 ounces or so.
Doctor joked about what a ways I have to go. It does still seem like I have forever, but I don’t mind. At least for now 😉
I go back to the doctor two weeks from yesterday. Then, the week after, we go to the cardiologist to have an ECHO on the twin’s hearts. That’s on the 21st. I’m SO ready for then. I don’t feel scared. I am just ready. Hopefully that’s a good sign. Praying lots for healthy hearts.
My pregnancy brain may be getting worse. I just can’t think straight. Occasionally I feel like my short term memory has gotten a little better. However, putting my phone in the fridge and the jar of salsa on my dresser
for 30 minutes is just unacceptable.
I’ve definitely been able to eat more this week. I was up a few pounds but I’m not sure if that was from March 1st or the 16th. Still trying to get lots of water.
I got my hair trimmed and thinned this week. It always looks like a wig on the ground afterward. I never feel like my hair on my head grows fast, but that the ones on my legs do. My nails have been growing super fast.
I’ve been working on nursery ideas. I’m excited to see if what I have in mind turns out as cute as I have visions for it to. We were laying in bed last night and Brent actually suggested a change in the wall color I was thinking and I may just like what he suggested better. I think it will all go good!
I am going to try to my first MOM’s meeting soon. MOM’s means ‘mom’s of multiples’ 🙂
I think the twins are excited for the heart walk tomorrow. I think they will miss knowing their big brother, but we will definitely make them feel like they know him lots. No, we (the twins and myself) can’t actually walk in the walk tomorrow. Next year we can!
Here were are this week…..
Here is the comparison from when I was pregnant with Cohen….
