19 Week Bumpdate





How far along? 19 weeks over halfway there!!!!

Total weight gain: The holidays did me in I’m up 18 ish pounds. I say ish because they weigh you before you pee and with all your clothes on and hello it’s winter I have on 3 shirts, jeans and boots. So who knows how much plus I went right after lunch with a full belly. My doctor didn’t seem too concerned.
Maternity clothes? Yes maternity clothes with some regular tops still mixed in
Stretch marks? No new ones. Using lotion nightly after my shower and in the morning

Sleep: Horrible this week. I woke up several times covered in sweat and just could not get comfortable. I had to start taking a Tylenol before bed just to be able to fall asleep because my back was so bad at the end of the day.
Best moment this week: Christmas!!! Grayson was adorable, and we got some cute things for the twins.
Miss Anything? I officially gave up grocery shopping and that was hard and I shed tears over it. I fell bad putting one more thing on my husband’s plate but I would be sore for the whole rest of the night and most of the next day so it was time.
Movement: Yes just waiting for the outside movement so my boys can feel them.

Food cravings: Oreos pizza chip dip and cheese. Why can’t I crave healthy food?
Anything making you queasy or sick: No smoothies and the smell of lunchmeat is still horrible to me
Gender: We have to very sealed envelopes containing the genders that we will find out with out family’s on the 16th!
Labor Signs: No

Symptoms: I feel very heavy. I fear that a maternity support belt is in my future very soon because I just feel low and have a ton of pressure.
Belly Button in or out? Flat. My belly looks fake
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: HAPPY!
Looking forward to: Christmas festivities!
Grayson: He has started to give the babies a kiss goodnight. He lifts up my shirt and says “let me kiss dem babies mommy” it’s super sweet. He also bought them each their own lovie for Christmas. He was so proud and happy that he got them their first present.


Our sonogram was great. The babies are both doing great and still measuring a little (about 6 days) ahead of what they should be which is not a bad thing. Baby A is about 11 oz and Baby B is around 10oz. I’m thankful that we don’t have to worry about twin to twin transfer because they each have their own placenta so that is a huge relief. Both have strong heartbeats Baby A 145 and Baby B 148. It is my favorite to just sit and watch them plus they are both movers and shakers. The doctor commented that we didn’t seem enthusiastic during the sonogram (this is not my doctor but the specialist where we had to have our 18 week done) and I said I’m just taking it all in doc. It’s still such a miracle to me that I have two babies in there so I think that when I see them I’m still in shock/awe with it all.
