Weeks 14 and 15!

Well, we are cruising along in the 2nd trimester now. Everything is going great. I went to the OB on the 10th and they told me my pressure was up 149/89. I think she used a cuff that was just too small. They made me do blood work and even a 24 hour urine collection! We went back yesterday and everything was fine. My pressure was 117/80 and all the labs came back normal. Thanks for freaking me out doc! More about yesterday's appointment. We heard the HBs again! I swear that is the most awesome sound EVER! Even DH was able to hear it better this time. Last time he complained to me that he couldn't really hear them. We got an appointment with the Perinatalogist for next month. I am interested to see what she says about the babies. We also got an appointment for the BIG U/S!!! Mark your calenders! 9/10 at 3:30 pm we will finally see who has been living in my uterus all this time! I am soooooo excited! I just cannot wait to finally know the genders. My mom is coming to the u/s too. She has been so eager to find out what the babies are. We go back to the OB in 4 weeks. Time is flying!

In related news, I am feeling pretty good. The nausea comes and goes. My belly is getting bigger but I still just look heavy. My mom and my DH say they see a difference but I can't really see it yet. I am growing out of my clothes, though. DH and I went shopping over the weekend b/c I just could not find any shirts that fit when we were getting ready to go to the store on Saturday. Luckily, my SIL gave me some maternity clothes when we were up in PA a few weeks ago. She is a size bigger than me but I figure since it's twins my belly is going to be much bigger than the average pregnant lady's. Life is good.

Well, that is all for now. Hope everyone enjoys their week. Tomorrow I will be 16 weeks. I will try to update again soon. Talk at you all later! =)

13 weeks!

Well, we are officially into the 2nd Trimester!! Wooohooo!! The procedure in Philly went really well. The doctor and his staff were awesome. Such sweet people. We left with U/S pics of the twins. I am trying to figure out how I can scan them. I really want to show you all. =) So, now that we made it to 2nd tri, there are a few things that are freaking me out a little. My m/s is going away. That's cool but it was sort of my thing that let me know that the LO's were ok. My boobs are not as tender either. This too makes me nervous. I try to just relax and say to myself "Everything is ok. There is no proof that anything is wrong" I am trying to focus on upcoming milestones. The next milestone I am looking forward to is feeling the babies move around and kick!

Let's talk cravings! Boy have they changed just over the last 13 weeks! I was on this cereal kick where I was making DH buy me 2 boxes at a time. Well, now it has shifted to sweet stuff... I know, I know not good for me or babies. Good thing is that fruit seems to be quenching this craving. I am trying to eat as much fruit as I can but a girl can't resist Sour Gummy Bears every now and then.. Yum!

My next OB appointment is on Monday. I cannot wait to hear what he says on a wide range of topics. I will definitely let you all know what he says. I really getting excited about having these babies!! Also, per the instructions of the Philly doc we have to get another u/s sometime this coming week. I cannot wait to see the babies again.

Well, that is all for now. Hope everyone has a great weekend. I think I might try to get my mom to take me to BRU this weekend. hehe. Talk at you all later! =)
