Total Weight Gain/Lost: I had a doctor's appointment yesterday and was weighed and...**GULP**...I've gained between 15 and 20 pounds already! OH. MY. Honestly, it doesn't bother me, I just can't believe it's already that much! It makes me happy when I've gained some weight because I know as this twin pregnancy progresses it won't be very easy to eat as much as I need to.
Maternity Clothes: Pretty much all the time! I also spend lots of time at home in pajamas and yoga-type pants.
Gender: Baby A is a GIRL! Baby B is a BOY!
Movement: Still not sure, but I think I feel movements here and there. I just am not sure what they feel like, so it's difficult to know for sure. I'm hoping they will make it really obvious here pretty soon!
Sleep: Sleep is getting better, I think. Most nights, I'm only up 2 or 3 times.
What I Miss: Honestly, I don't miss much. I am starting to finally enjoy being pregnant and can relax a bit. But, if I had to choose something, I guess it would be that I miss being independent, and being able to do things on my own, without having to wait for others to help me (like getting Christmas decorations down from the attic).
Cravings: None especially. Some things sound better than others, but true cravings have kind of subsided.
Symptoms: A BIG BELLY, a sore back and some mild cramping and stretching.
Best moment for this week: Meeting my new OBGYN this week. She was really outgoing and fun and most of all, very positive. PLUS, she's a Fightin' Texas Aggie!!! We didn't know that when we chose her as our OB, so that was definitely a pleasant surprise.
