21 Weeks

Ok I know I have been absolutely horrible at updating this and I don’t have a good excuse except for I’ve just been flat out lazy! I get home from work and all I want to do is change in to my pjs, eat dinner and sit in the recliner with the heating pad. And let me tell you….It’s Heaven 
Update on my pregnancy. As you can see from the title and my little ticker I am now 21 wks along. Holy cow when did this happen? I’m so amazed at how fast the time is flying by. All my Dr appointments have been going great and my little boys are looking so cute. I will see my specialist for the second time today. I can’t wait to see those cute little babies again. I will start my bi-weekly appointments next month. I’m pretty sure I am going to be all Dr’d out by the end of this. As if I wasn’t already from IVF. Ok so here are some bullet points.

Morning Sickness: I still throw up every morning first thing. After that I eat my waffles with peanut butter and a glass of milk and I’m good to go. It’s so refreshing to feel good during the day now. They are still grounded when they come out for making me so sick though. JK!
Weight Gain: Well this sure did change. If you remember at 15 wks I had only gained 6 lbs. Now at 21 wks I am up 17 lbs. My Dr assured me though that everyone has 10 lb months. WHEW! I’m still not concerned about my weight. I want what is best for these little guys. She expects me to gain at least 40 so I’m still right on track. . I’m happy to say it is all belly too.
Babies Room: We pretty much have the room put together. We still need a rug, curtains and to hang their names on the wall. And then of course just some added decorations. I love it. I love walking in there and being filled with the tears of joy that were replaced from tears of heartache.
Movement: I felt Beckham move for the first time on February 14th. Oh how amazing it was. I have been feeling them daily although it’s still not as prominent as I would like. I know, a million people have told me don’t wish too much for this because pretty soon you will be asking them to stop. Miserable and all I will still marvel at these little ones moving inside me. I’ve waited a long time for this feeling.
Daycare- This just makes me cry. I hate even talking about it. But it’s one of the things that have to happen. We found an in home daycare for a VERY affordable price. We really liked her and this is where the boys will go. I thought I would walk out of there happy because we find a place that we liked, but I was even sadder leaving. It means I really have to leave them. I really don’t know how I’m going to be able to do this.

I still have to admit that pregnancy is not at all what I expected it to be, but I’m starting to enjoy it more and more. I still get no sleep at night thanks to back pain and constant peeing, but I think I’m starting to adjust. Seeing my belly grow just makes me smile. I will update with pics later. I have so much to write about, but that is going to require me to stop being lazy. So maybe soon you will get more out of me. For now that is all the updates I have.

I'm so happy for you!!! Feeling your baby move inside of you is really indescribable!..... but I gotta say... it gets even better than that! Just wait until you can SEE them moving from the outside! You will see an elbow sweep across your belly.. or a butt stuck up in the air. It's sooooo crazy! =D

I could even feel my baby boy playing with his hands while he was in there!

It gets more and more exciting from 20 weeks on. (in my opinion!)

Yes, of course it gets more uncomfortable the farther along you are... but it's also crazy exciting. Enjoy it sister girl! They'll be here soon! (as if you havent heard that a billion times already.) =) LOL

God bless

Woo hoo, all good news! I hope you post belly pictures soon:). I was all belly too and I'm happy to say that I now look pretty much back to normal. I mean, if you knew me, you could tell I gained a little weight. But if you didn't, you'd have no idea I had a baby 10 days ago!

As for the movement, I NEVER got to the point when I wanted her to stop. Maybe during pre-labor when her movements spurred on a contraction. Otherwise, I just LOVED it, all the time. Every time she moved, I smiled.

And the no sleep thing - I've heard people say it's our body's way or preparing us for no sleep with babies. Maybe so, because there is very little sleep with newborns...and with 2, well, even less:). Enjoy the waking up just to pee because soon it will be waking up to feed and change 2 babies and it will take a lot! And it will be magical:).

Hang in there, girl!
