Is it hot in here? Wk 16

Pheww! It feels like the office building has the heat on today - or maybe its just me. Can't wait till its August and 90 out!!

A milestone in this past week has been feeling a few kicks, but only maybe 1-2 times a day and only when I'm lying down. They are mostly coming from baby B on the left since that one is facing forward. I'm really looking forward to feeling more movement from both and when DH can feel them with his hand on my belly. He is really looking forward to seeing the "lumps" when they get really big and actually stick out of my stomach - I'm not so sure that'll be a great feeling for me. Sounds like it hurts...

Another thing that I've noticed is I don't like any pressure on my belly - from too tight pants/undies or when DH puts his hand on my belly to hard.

I've officially started my registry on B-r-Us but tonight is the first time we'll venture out to the store to look at car seats, strollers, etc. Can't wait. I always think that place is hot, overwhelming and filled with screaming kids, so I'm hoping no one will be there after 7PM at night to make it as stress-free as possible.

Week 15 - New Outfits

So one of my dear girlfriends sent a truckload of maternity clothes last week. Here's one of the many new outfits I'll be modeling this summer!

I think this particular outfit makes my bump appear larger than it really is...

Bumpwatch - Week 14

Here I am this morning in the parking lot at the Dr's office. All is going well and we were able to hear both heartbeats and one of them kicking when the Dr pressed down with the doppler device. Maybe I have a future David Beckham in there!!

Trimester 2 - Day 1

Wow - can't believe we've made it this far! This is definitely new territory.

As for my appearance - I still think I look more chunky then preggo, but I think that's starting to change since the pants I could kind of zip up and wear with my Bellaband last week won't even zip up at all this week. This means until the donated clothes from my friend arrive, I'm reduced to 2 pair of jeans and one pair of capri pants that I bought at Target to wear to work. Not good. Let's hope those clothes are on the way!!

Not much else going on - my mom is trying to schedule a shower for me around August 1 which will be fun. Can't wait to get back towards the beach! I miss it so much being out here in the midwest.

That's all from here!

Approaching Phase 2

I can't believe that I'm 13 weeks along already! Time is flying by! Hard to believe when we started both babies were only 8 cells big and now there both as big as a peach!

Another milestone will be next week when I get to go to my first baby shower feeling "part of the gang" and not the barren woman. Even better, the shower is for one of my IF friends who has struggled as much as I have, and now we're both having twins! I couldn't be happier for us both!

I should really post a bump-watch photo of myself, but I still feel more on the fat side and less pregnant. I hopped on the scale this morning and I think I've gained about eight pounds - which isn't to out of line I guess. I did buy some maternity jeans at the Gap, but they are still way to big on me but my normal jeans won't fit either unless I'm wearing a belly band. Such a weird place to be in. On a good note a dear friend of mine is sending a bunch of clothes for me which will be a godsend this summer when nothing fits but my DH's t-shirts and no shorts.

The other thing I need to buy is maternity undies - I've heard conflicting reports on these, but my current undies are cutting into me, especially at night when I'm at my most bloated. No fun!
