Well hello there, stomach!
Total weight gain: 15 pounds, and I'm pretty sure at least half of that comes from cheese products
Maternity clothes: Yes, indeed. It seems I did not invest in (or inherit) enough maternity clothes for cold weather, unfortunately, but I'm making due. Thankfully Allison did lend me her maternity coat, which has been a life-saver these past couple of weeks!
Stretch marks: Not that I've noticed, but if we're being honest, I can't see the underside of my stomach anymore.
Sleep: Sigh. Santa did, in fact, bring me not one, but two body pillows for Christmas, but it has unfortunately not been the solution to my sleeping troubles. I usually fall asleep on my left side with the pillow between my legs and my arm wrapped around the top, but it is very difficult to roll over to my other side and successfully bring the pillow with me. So usually I roll over onto my right side and fall asleep before the pillow makes it with me. And then I wake up with back and leg pain. Spesh!
Best moment this week: Getting the nursery ready AND getting my second baby shower invitation- can't wait for both of those!
Miss anything: Being able to eat and/or perform normal activities without running out of breath
Movement: Yes! Colby and Clara are rocking and rolling in there, most often after meals and right before bed.
Food cravings: Nope. Oddly enough, I have not been one of those pregnant people that has (a) been ravenously hungry or (b) craved specific foods.
Symptoms: I think the most noticeable difference lately is how easily I run out of breath. I also seem to get tired more easily than I used to, and strenuous activities like walking around Target require brief sitting breaks.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, thankfully!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy- fortunately (for Brian), the pregnancy rage didn't last past the first trimester. Let's hope that continues to be the case.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, and I have been known to get my feelings hurt if someone points out that I look "small for being pregnant with twins," particularly because I am sensitive about Clara's growth, even though I know my size is not directly reflective of her size!
Boy or Girl: Colby Wayne and Clara Lane :)
Looking forward to: Seeing the babies at the ultrasound this afternoon, my first shower in a couple of weeks, making more progress on the nursery
That's all, folks. I'll be sure to report back on the results from this afternoon's ultrasound. Your prayers are greatly appreciated!
