13w4d

wow! almost 14 weeks, i can't believe it.

the whole world now knows about the beautiful babies growing in my ever expanding belly. it's wonderful to share the news. although we have had our share of,"do twins run in your family?!" and,"did you take fertility drugs?" i am amazed that people can't just say, "congratulations, that is wonderful!" we are not secretive about our IVF with family and friends, but in some venues, you just don't want to get into it, or you are not close at all with the person asking.
oh, and about that belly, it is getting B-I-G! i look like a full on prego, and i've got the maternity jeans to prove it! i can't believe how fast it is growing, especially considering i lost 15 pounds originally and have only gained a few back. i would guess i look at least 20 weeks pregnant, maybe more. i was able to find a prenatal yoga class that i've been going to once a week. it's nice to do something since i've been told not to do "anything that will swing a ponytail". i have also been getting some sciatic pains down my butt and leg and the yoga has some good stretches to help it.

that's about all. my next OB appointment isn't until the 24th and the MFM on April 16th when we will find out the genders!! seems like a long way a way, but at least this belly is reassuring me that everyone is still growing in there. it's my birthday this weekend so mr.m is taking me into the big city for a show and dinner :)

mmmm...dinner....

Yay! I'm so happy that you're happy. I get those questions a lot, too, and it's weird because twins actually DO run in my family, but I feel like I'm hiding something when I answer "yes".

And yeah, get ready for your belly to get a LOT bigger in the coming weeks. The speed at which my belly grows amazes everyone, including me.

I am so excited to be near the end of the first trimester...at least partly because, like you, I cannot hide this poochy belly much longer! (And I am only carrying one!). Glad that things are going well. Keep up the good baby-growing work!
