Merry Christmas

I just wanted to tell everyone Merry Christmas and to be safe over New Years! I have off until after the first of the year so I will be hit and miss here on my blog.

I'm officially 14 weeks today! Woo Hoo for the second trimester!! Weekly update coming soon (hopefully!)

Over my vacation I do plan on cleaning out the room we are gonna use as the nursery. I hope I remember to take lots of before and after photos. We wont be buying furniture until late next month or early February since we will know the sex of them by then. At least it will be empty and ready for paint if we decide to do that.

Merry Christmas Bloggie friends!!!!

My little June Bugs @ 13 weeks




How far along? 13 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Babies are now the size of a peach!
They are forming teeth and vocal cords. Baby is approaching normal proportions, with his head now only one third the size of his body. And intestines are in the process of moving from the umbilical cord to baby's tummy.

Weight Gain? My scale at home say 3lbs but my clothes and belly say other wise.

Maternity Clothes? I bought some maternity pant this weekend!!! I love them. I'm not sure why I tortured myself the past week and didn't get them sooner.

Stretch marks? none.

Belly button in or out? In but I'm sure its gonna be out in no time.

Sleep? Still Really good.

Foods I am loving? Mac and cheese and Ice water. I never understood what a fellow blogger meant when she said lots of ice. But I do now! The colder the better. So refreshing

Foods I am hating? Meat by itself, even the smell grosses me out.

Best moment this week? Hearing that even though I haven't gain weight I'm ok and the babies are ok. I mean I'm getting big just not weigh wise....weird!

Movement? none that I can feel

Symptoms? Morning, Day and Night sickness, fatigue, dizziness and the dreaded constipation and to add another, daily headaches.

Genders? No clue, I've had dreams of two little boys and just the past few nights have been of two little girls.

What I miss? eating and not having to go the the bathroom so often.

What I'm looking forward to? Being in the second trimester.

Weekly Wisdom: Write down any questions you have for your OB. If not it will be forgotten by the time you get there.

Milestone: Being in the last week of the First trimester!!!!!!!

Emotions: Good. Still easily agitated but I'm not sure how much longer I can blame that on the pregnancy.

So at the OB on Friday she said I was measuring 20 WEEKS!!!! Not complaining just wondering how big I will get. Like I said earlier I have been concerned about not gaining weight. My OB said that I have such a small frame (5'5" and 110 lbs) she doesn't see me gaining over 30 lbs (even with twins). I asked her if this was safe for the babies she said as long as I'm eating they are getting what they need! HUGE sigh of relief.

While I was at Moth.erhood Mater.nity in the dressing room I decided to stick the belly on and see what I'm gonna look like. DH stepped out to get me a different size and when he came back he got this little surprise!!

Have you ever......

been so tired or so out of it that you second guess yourself on whether or not you did something. This morning after I was done taking a shower I had to think hard on whether or not I actually did all of my routines. Shampoo, conditioner, brush teeth, etc.....I honestly went through my shower on auto pilot. Where my mind was I have no clue.

I have done this while driving home from work. After about 15-20 minutes of driving I will have this OMGosh moment, did I stop at that stop sign or was that light green when I went through it. Days like this can be scary considering I drive over and hour one way to work!

On a completely different note, today I'm officially 13 weeks!! Woo Hoo last week in the first trimester. I will be glad when I start getting some energy back.

My little June Bugs @ 12 weeks



How far along? 12 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Babies are now the size of a plum! After weeks in the critical development stage, almost all of their systems are fully formed.

Weight Gain? My scale at home say 3lbs but my clothes and belly says other wise.

Maternity Clothes? Just the bella band but I think I'm going this weekend for some new pants.

Stretch marks? none.

Belly button in or out? In

Sleep? Really good. I wanna go to bed at like 8:00 (pathetic I know) but I force myself to stay awake until 8:30 or 9:00.

Foods I am loving? Mac and cheese

Foods I am hating? Just meat, even the smell grosses me out.

Best moment this week? Seeing both babies yesterday at my NT scan. Baby A is a thumb sucker and extremely active. Baby B is more relaxed.

Movement? none that I can feel

Symptoms? Morning, Day and Night sickness, fatigue, dizziness and the dreaded constipation and to add another, daily headaches.

Genders? No clue, but I have been having dreams of two little boys. I really hope its one of each. Just a few more weeks and I will know.

What I miss? eating

What I'm looking forward to? Being in the second trimester.

Weekly Wisdom: Use the bathroom before you leave the house, even if you don't feel like you need to.

Milestone: Getting pregnant

Emotions: Cranky and its only with the people I work with. I use to say I wanted to return to work after having the babies, now not so much.

I am so behind on these post. My roll over is on Thursdays so I will be 13 weeks in two days. I'm sure I will get it together soon.

My little June Bugs @ 11 weeks





How far along? 11 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Babies are now the size of a lime!
Your fetus currently enjoys a 1:1 ratio between body and head, and has skin so transparent that blood vessels show right through it. But fingers and toes are no longer webbed, and hair follicles, tooth buds, and nail beds are forming -- setting up a significantly more attractive future.

Weight Gain? I'm still thinking 2 lbs

Maternity Clothes? Just the bella band

Stretch marks? none.

Belly button in or out? In

Sleep? I get up to use the bathroom around 1:00 each morning and have such a hard time falling back to sleep. Other than that I wanna go to bed at like 8:00, I feel so exhausted after working 10hrs. I feel like the further along I get the sleepier I get.

Foods I am loving? I'm still not loving food but if its salty its my best friend. The smell of hot sauce...oh how I wanna eat it but I know it wont set well once I do.

Foods I am hating? Chocolate...normally I LOVE it. I have noticed that things with a tomato base isn't appealing....lasagna, enchiladas, spaghetti....even though I love these things, normally.

Best moment this week? I know this sounds terrible but it was uneventful. At my doctor appt they only drew blood and took a urine sample.

Movement? none

Symptoms? Morning, Day and Night sickness, fatigue, dizziness and the dreaded constipation.

Genders? No clue

What I miss? eating

What I'm looking forward to? Feeling movement, my baby books says maybe only 1 more month! Being in the second trimester...getting so close!

Weekly Wisdom: Even though you feel guilty about taking meds its the best thing for you.

Milestone: Getting Pregnant

Emotions: I'm starting to feel more myself. Still a little weepy at times.

MIA

I have been gone so long from here I haven't even done my 10week update and tomorrow I will be 11weeks!

Over Thanksgiving I got really sick and didn't wanna do anything. I missed 2 days of work (that never happens). I went to the doctor Monday, I needed some type of relief. The nurse who took my BP and temp asked when my last period was. I told him and then said I was 10 1/2 weeks pregnant. After the doctor came in and realized how bad I was he suggested I get a steroid shot. So just to be on the safe side I asked if it was safe for pregnant women. He had this dumbfounded look on his face then check my chart and said oh no not safe at all!! After I left his office I called my OB to make sure the prescription he prescribed was safe.

I know that when you are given meds that you typically take ALL of it until its gone. I already feel guilty about taking meds while being pregnant so I have been thinking about stopping them in a few days. The lenght is for 10 days which I think is way over kill!! What do you think?
