Today I am 10 weeks. I went in for a Doctor’s visit because I have been having some weird spotting/discharge since Sunday. My DR wanted to do an exam to rule out an infection. At the last minute he decided on me getting an ultrasound. I could barely contain my excitement. I had already been told when I made the appt. it would be for an exam only, no u/s. The ultrasound was AMAZING! It is so awesome how much the twins have grown in just 2 weeks!!!!! They really look like babies now!!!! I saw them moving around and one of them was moving their arms, it was seriously so cute!!! The only bummer was that my husband wasn’t there to see it. These are his first children and he wants to be a part of every single thing. I felt really bad but the tech did print out pictures of them for me to show. Here they are!
Baby A is a side profile pic and baby B was looking right at us! I am seriously so in-love with these two little beans. They are both measuring right on track, Baby A is 10 weeks 2 days and baby B is 10 weeks 1 day. They are consistently always 1 day different. Baby A had a heart rate of 171 and baby B 162. Baby A actually looks like s/he has antennas in the picture. A friend that saw the pic I posted on Facebook pointed it out. No clue what the hell those things could be! Weird! I didn’t even notice it and honestly wish she wouldn’t have pointed it out.
As for how I am feeling, I have my moments. Tonight I am actually feeling good. Most nights I feel like crap. I am still having weird discharge but the DR literally cleaned me out today of all the built up Crinone so that could be the cause. It was so gross and I was so embarrassed as he was pulling out chunks. YUCK! I still don’t sleep well. I pee every hour, so a minimum of 24 times a day. I am not even kidding. I did buy a diffuser and some Lavender oil to see if it would help with sleep, it didn’t. It just gave me a headache. My appetite is unreal. I am always hungry and feel like I am going to get huge. Not just belly huge but fat gross huge. I give in to my cravings too much. I need to slow it down, or exercise, or both! My breasts are still pretty full and my nipples are tender. Not as bad as before though, or maybe I am getting used to it. I have been getting some acne on my chin and neck…gross. I have also been pretty stuffy but that may be due to the high pollen count lately. Overall I feel pretty good for someone that is growing 2 humans at once. 😉
