19 weeks 2 days

There are some days that I just wonder if anyone ever has easy, happy pregnancies from start to finish. I know i've said it before and it has a told to do with the internet world I float in, but seriously. A friend who is about 9 weeks ahead of me, so I think she's 28 weeks 1 day today (if I did my math right) is currently riding out Hotel Antepartum. She went to the ER on Monday with intense pain and they found that, while the baby is okay, her blood pressure was extremely high signaling pre-eclampsia. Her pressure has come down, but she's still hanging out at the hospital being closely monitored in the event that the baby has to come out now. And on the one hand I'm so scared, because no one wants at 28 week baby and all the possible complications that come with it. On the other hand, I'm so glad she's at 28 weeks.


How far along? 19 weeks 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: We didn't get an official weight check on Friday, but I'm thinking it's about 12-14lbs over all. Once again, I don't officially know! It was about 12 when I weighed myself last.

Maternity clothes? Always Yes, but the pants are already leaving marks on my belly!

Stretch marks? None! Nope

Sleep: Not enough. But I got a TON this weekend and LOVED it!!! I slept ridiculous amounts. I'm doing okay- in bed around 10 and up at 5:30 usually only waking up with the Colbster 1 time during that 7.5 hours.

Best moment this week: The big appointment on Friday... all the measurements looked so good! :) The anatomy scan yielded two healthy babies.

Movement: Yes!! I cannot wait until I can feel the kicks on a regular basis! I'm feeling small kicks, but not regularly yet. :)

Food cravings: I like random things at random times. :) Nothing that I ALWAYS have to have, but plenty that that I HAVE to have at unusual times. Baked potatoes

Gender: 185% sure it's 2 boys! Not offically, but I go back and forth between 2 girls and a boy and a girl. No part of me thinks that it is two boys.

Labor Signs: No! I don't want any of those for... oh 20 weeks. :) No

Belly Button in or out? It's still in, but it's sticking its neck out. :) Ha! That sounds strange! It's basically flat-ish.

What I miss: Nothing! Nothing really, but it would be nice to be able to walk without being in constant back/hip/ligament pain.

What I am looking forward to: Everything! More movement, my belly button FINALLY choosing it's position, summer coming (always have the non-baby related thing!) Movement and the next few weeks going smoothly. I'm getting anxious.

Weekly Wisdom: Try not to get stressed out about stupid things. It's hard for me, but it's been a GREAT weekend because I've just taken things in stride.

Milestones: Nothing really new... but I am SO close to officially 1/2 way! Real kicks?

it's amazing how much faster the belly grows with twins! Yay for great anatomy scans!
Be sure you don't leave without a great cervix check every time! You are the boss!
