Grim Twins – Weeks 13 & 14

How far along? 13-14 Weeks Pregnant
Gender Predictions:  Mommy: Boy/Girl; Daddy: Boy/Girl
Total weight gain: 1.7 lbs…and so it begins!! 🙂
Maternity clothes? Yep!! 🙂
Stretch marks? A few small ones
Sleep: Still tired but not anywhere near as exhausted as I was. The usual: The insomnia has DEFINITELY sunk back in again.  I’m not that big, but sleeping on my sides is NOT for me, and it’s causing really sore shoulders and back, so I need to invest in a maternity pillow!  I wake up like every hour (or so it feels).
Best moment this week: We went in for our first elective 2D/3D ultrasound at the end of week 13 and got to stream it for the grandparents.  It was soooooo unbelievably amazing!!!  I think i’m still on cloud nine 🙂  To top it all off our new doppler heartbeat monitor came in so now we can hear the heartbeats whenever we want!  Definitely puts us at ease when we start getting nervous about the babies.
Miss Anything?  SANDWICHES still. And SLEEP!   
Movement:  Feeling those flutters more and more!! I love it and can’t wait until Daddy can share in the experience 🙂
Food cravings/aversions:  Craving french fries (potato anything), rotisserie, and fried pickles still.  And still craving those sammiches that I can’t have. LoL  NO real aversions.
Symptoms:  A teeny bit nauseous in the morning but it’s mostly gone.  I’m starting to get more energy, but definitely getting really sore off and on.  The babies are growing for sure~
Anything making you queasy or sick:  The usual: Cigarette smoke and strong cologne/perfumes.
Labor Signs:  NO!  Praying we make it to at least 37 weeks with these two 🙂
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy…except for traffic in Savannah lol After so many months on and off the fertility drugs, my body is like “What?  Pregnancy?  Piece of cake these hormones!”
Looking forward to:  FINDING OUT THE GENDERS!!!  We should know by Week 15/16 and we’re so excited to find out!!
