Sonya, that's definitely a baby bump showing. :) Cute! Isn't it funny how we are all shaped so different in how we carry! One things for sure, by the end we will all feel ginormous, and look gorgeous all at the same time. It's fun to have bump buddies to share this journey with.

I'M LOVING THE BELLY PICTURES!!!!

Karin1: I get really nauseous in the morning and some smells just make it worse. This started about a week ago, I was feeling bloated before but no nausea. Eating also makes it better for me but not in the morning. By noon i'm starting to feel much better. Believe it or not I have a little belly... It certainly wasn't there before. I'm only 9 weeks and my pants don't fit.... I'll take a picture later!.

Everyone looks beautiful!!!!

My tummy seems to be pushing up rather than out to be honest. I'm overweight, but usually my ribs are pretty easily seen if I lift my arms... not a lot of excess fat around my midsection... I carry it in my hips, legs and rear. But instead of this pregnancy going OUT it seems to be going UP! LOL

I love, love, LOVE the bump shots!!! Everyone is looking sooooo adorable! YAY!!!!!!!!!!

I will hafta get mine posted soon, I'm taking my next shots tomorrow or Tuesday (officially 18 wks then) and will get them on here. It's great to see that everyone is doing so well, it puts a giant, goofy grin on my face!

Does anyone have baby shower plans in the works yet? Since the threat of complications and bed rest are rather high with the twinkies, mine is being planned for March 20th. I'll be two days shy of 25 weeks! Geez! Are our pregnancies just moving along or what??

Stephanie: My baby shower will be on March 5th, my 24 week mark. My SIL claimed she wanted to throw it and then backed out last week after the invites went out. Shes saying my husband and I have more money so we should be paying for everything :roll: So annoying! Now I'm trying to get the food and everything else planned, and my sisters coming up from Florida to help that week.

I'm considering hiring someone to come and clean my house. I haven't been able to do much of anything these past 3 weeks since I became sick and am going mad! I cannot stand a dirty house.
I was hoping I'd be able to let it go but I can't take it anymore. Oh well enough of my rant. I hope you all have a great week! I'll post pics of the boys when I get home on Wednesday.

Hey Ladies! I was just lurking to see how a few friends were doing, and I see several of you are twin mommas! Congrats! Our twins girls will be three months old on Thursday and we are all doing really well. They are kids #3 & 4 for us so life is CRAAAAAZY, but lots of fun. Good luck to you ALL and I hope everyone's pregnancies are going well. Enjoy it now, it's definitely hard at the end (especially for you twin moms), but so worth it (duh, you know that) :D

Mellow & Sonya - Great bump pictures!! Can't wait to see the rest of the groups pics as they post them!

Stephanie - Our shower with my family will be 4/17. My SIL is due 5/15 so we're doing a combined shower (so we don't have to make the siblings fly up to NY twice.) Not sure if our RI family & friends will do a separate one. There have been mentions but nothing official yet.

Gina - I think having someone clean your house is a great idea! You'll feel better having a clean house and you won't have wiped yourself out doing it. I say go for it!

So I can't figure out how to add a picture of my bump. I feel like I'm huge! I've gained 9 pounds so far, but on at my appointment on Friday I hadn't gained any weight since my last appointment (4 weeks before). I've been hitting the gym lately (walking on the treadmill, riding the bike, etc.) because my OB brought up my weight gain and I don't want to gain a ton of weight. I lost 68 pounds before we started in-vitro and my goal is to not gain it all back.

As far as cravings, I've been wanting to drink things that have flavor, I'm getting tired of water. I want juice, gatorade, icee's, caffiene free pop, etc. I still drink a lot of water, but I just want something that has taste. We bought kool-aid the other day at the store (which we haven't bought in years) just so I could have something with flavor. Food hasn't really been an issue as far as cravings go. I will think something sounds good, but I don't usually eat it or get it.
