10 Weeks (+2 days)

And for a 10 week thing-a-ma-bob... I thought it would be interesting to compare to last time, so this time I put answers in red. :)

How far along? 10 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: I think nothing... I am about 2 lbs up from pre-IVF weight though. But I don't think I've put anything on since that. I may have actually lost a little. Same as finding out we were pregnant... one or two pounds up from pre-IVF again though.

Maternity clothes? No, but I do only wear 2 pairs of pants over and over. My dressier ones aren't happening. Occasionally maternity jeans, but they're not entirely comfy because they fit on the belly but apparently my hips/butt aren't big enough to keep them up. I can still wear my work pants though. (Which is weird because my belly is already huge!)

Stretch marks? Nope Leftovers from last time!

Sleep: Usually 9 hours a night... :P More if I can squeeze it! (Last night I was in bed at 7:15!) Never enough. Usually 7 or so. Most nights I'm up 1 or 2 times with Colby, too. I'm so tired during the day and just want to crash. I'm contemplating a day off just so I can slep!

Best moment this week: Monday last week hearing the heartbeat. Imagining the nursery in the new place! Realizing that, no matter how quiet my dad is, he is thrilled beyond belief!!! So far this week has been pretty much same-ole. :) I am excited that I hit 10 weeks though... it seems huge for some reason.

Movement: No I heard that women who have been pregnant again usually notice movement earlier the second time around, so I've been trying to feel it every night. So far... nadda. :) (Yes, I know 10 weeks is incredibly early! Wishful thinking!)

Food cravings: Coolattas, pretzels Anything and everything but it totally changes depending on the day/how I'm feeling. One day pizza sounds so good, but the next the thought of it makes me sick.

Gender: 1 of each? :P I'm pretty convinved that it is 1 of each. Growing up I always said I would have a boy, then twin boy/girl, then a girl. So, we had twin boys first, but we only got to take one home, so I'm thinking maybe it's all playing into my thoughts from way back when.

Labor Signs: Not for awhile! No no no no. Please PLEASE stay away until I'm at least 30 weeks. I won't be greedy... but please stay away!

Belly Button in or out? Innie! Innie

What I miss: Absolutely NOTHING. I LOVE where I am right now! Nothing

What I am looking forward to: The doctors appt. on Wednesday! Can't wait to see the ultrasound! Everything. Seeing this pregnancy progress safely and taking home TWO healthy babies. I'm pretty convinced that it will work. And I'm super excited to meet the high risk doc on Friday. Ultrasound please!

Weekly Wisdom: I think the only advice I got came from my dad... when he said "My advice is to just eat what you want... but sensibly." Nothing too prophetic, but I think he was trying to make me feel better about wanting a Coolatta! I don't really have any... I'm just really, really, really trying to take it easy. I sit a lot more at work, I don't run around like crazy at home... I'm doing all I can to get these babies to a safe place.

Milestones: Double digits in the weeks! Double digits!

Hi, Stacey. I just found your blog, and I'm so glad you decided to share your story. I'm a Stacey (spelled right - with the "e"! :). I'm so sorry for all you've been through, and so happy for your sweet boy and new pregnancy! We're expecting our first after 3 years of TTC (IUI's, IVF, you know it all :). I'm a lot older (39) and we're thinking that we'll try again right away. What made you all decide to try again soon?

Hi, I have been a lurker for a while on your page. So happy for you that you are pregnant with twins! I am also a teacher. One of my coworkers was in preterm labor with her daughter a couple of weeks ago. They were able to hold of labor and she is back a work now. She has a wheelchair everywhere she goes so she is not on her feet. When she arrives at school she calls a teacher and he will go out to her car and get her wheelchair out of her car and wheel her into school. The rest of the day the kids wheel her around as necessary. I know that it is not ideal but it is working for her right now and the baby is staying put. I don't know if bedrest will be mandatory but I thought I would share what she did because it might help you as well. God Bless with the rest of your pregnancy!

Yay for 10 weeks! And a big belly! Pics please?

I always felt like Id have twins. They run in both of our families, so even before I knew we were cursed with IF, I thought we would!
Only time will tell.

I was thinking maybe we could set up a meeting in the spring..introduce Colby and Trevor and bask in the glory of two pregnant bellies?! (Yes, I am getting WAY ahead of myself!)

Erin-- UM.. YES. And You're not ahead of yourself! 8 days until you're officially pregnant! (Which means the count has already begun!)
