I know I haven't been in here lately but I've been reading all your updates. I am so happy for everyone. Reading your stories brings tears to my eyes. I am so happy that what we all have been waiting for, for so long has finally come true. I don’t even know you ladies and I am so over-joyed for you!
Mom, I cried when reading about you and your mom crying in the parking lot. That is so wonderful. Yes, you made it!! With all that you have been thru I know you were so nervous. But here you are! 12 weeks and going strong!! YIPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Ange--I have to laugh about your little ones and their acrobatics and you making one fly to the other side. lol Last ultra sound I had we also saw the babies flipping around and swimming. lol
My next ultra sound is on Wednesday. Then on Friday I have a 3d-4d ultrasound and a consult with a specialist. My regular OBGYN wants me to see someone that specializes in multiple births.
Morning sickness hasn't been too bad lately. It comes and comes. I'm hoping it's almost the end of it. I feel great during the weekends (thanks kids lol) but during the week, I feel the worst.
I can already tell my little ones are like their mommy. They don’t like Mondays. Or it could be the total opposite. They love Mondays and that's why they are so active and making me sick starting on Monday.
Boobs are so sore and heavy. OMG!! When I remove my bra, it feels like I have a brick attacked to my chest. But I feel it more in one than the other. TMI ALERT...Before I got pregnant I had one boob that was much bigger (noticeably bigger) than the other. Now since I've been pregnant, the bigger boob has continued to get bigger. Can't really tell if the little one is getting any bigger. I was looking forward to getting pregnant so the little one could catch up. No such luck yet.
I'm now wearing maternity jeans and I love them! They are so comfortable. lol I have a few maternity shirts but I think maternity shirts make you look more pregnant than what you are. lol I also purchased the pants extender belt that someone mentioned. It's the best thing ever. It extends your pants with elastic and it has a button and a loop to fasten it. It's probably best to wear long shirts with it. lol
I'm still feel pains and twinges here and there. And it hurts like the dickens sometimes when I sneeze.
Also, another TMI alert. Is anyone experiencing a little leakage of urine when they sneeze? I absolutely hate this! My SIL says it's normal but it usually happens later in pregnancy. I think all my symptoms have escalated. Also, my belly button (navel) has started to stick out a little. I heard that’s supposed to happen later also. Mine is just starting to poke out a little. I also have bad gas at times.
Has anyone experienced a leg cramp yet? OMG!! A friend of mine was just talking to me about the painful leg cramps you sometimes get (mostly while sleeping). I think she jinxed me because I experienced it for the first time this weekend and I thought I was dying. I guess I stretched in the middle of the night and....WOW...out of no where, leg cramp in my calf area. It was the worst feeling ever.
DH helped massage it and then I walked around the bedroom for about 5 minutes. I can tell you it wasn't easy to fall back asleep.
Well I think that's the latest with me. Prayfully, my little ones are doing just fine and growing and developing like they should be. I get to see them again on Wednesday and will probably have more of an update for you all.
Hope everyone is doing well.
Healthy babies to you all!
