16 weeks

Today I am 16 weeks!! It seems like just yesterday I found out I was pregnant! My bump is getting huge and I am gaining weight like crazy, which my DR says is good??!! I have seen two different DR’s and neither seem concerned at all with my gain, they say it is completely normal with twins. Speaking of DR’s we had our 16 week appt. today and everything looked great! We found out we are having a boy and a girl!!!! SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!

Baby B is the girl and she is weighing 5 oz. already and measuring at 6 weeks 5 days, and baby A is weighing in atΒ 4 oz. and measuring 6 weeks 2 days. We saw each babies brain and the cerebellum. We also saw the 4 chambers of each heart. Baby girl had a heart rate of 150 and baby boy had a heart rate of 146. It was amazing to see them! I am feeling them more too now, mostly at night when I lay down. I feel so blessed!

Tomorrow morning I leave for Florida for a week. I am having some bad anxiety. I have wanted to go home for so long, it has been 2 years. But now that the time has come, I am not overly excited. I get major anxiety when I am away from my husband. Strange I know but I hate being away from him. We can’t both go because someone has to stay and watch the kids. He went two weeks ago. I know I will have fun but ugh, I will miss him, my kids, my Tempurpedic, my house, my car. I am such a homebody so being away from everything freaks me out. On a good note I will see my parents, my friends, the ocean, all my favorite food spots, and I am having a baby shower which I am really excited about. Oh, and I am having my first maternity shoot, I will have another next trimester with my hubby and kids. I got extremely lucky and managed to book Adam Opris for an underwater maternity shoot. He is absolutely AMAZING! His work has been featured on news reports, magazines, and several other sources around the world. I literally just caught him before he has to leave for Antigua for a week and he is squeezing me in. I cannot wait! Here is a link to some of his work…

As for how I am feeling, well, I am pretty good. I feel HUGE and tire easily. I get out of breath so quick, must be all the extra weight. I am my hungriest early in the day, by the time dinner comes I usually eat just to eat, not because I want to. I am constantly thirsty and pee allllll the time. I am back to about 6 times per night. I still have pretty bad insomnia. My nausea is almost completely gone though so I am sooo happy about that!!! My next appt. is in 4 weeks for my 20 week anatomy scan. This will be a very in depth ultrasound and they give us a DVD of it afterwards which is really cool! This is also going to be my last 4 week appt., after the 20 week I go to every 2 weeks, which means I get to see the babies every 2 weeks! πŸ™‚

Well here are some bump pics, I was actually at the end of 15 weeks in these pics. My Mamagama shirt is awesome in my opinion, it totally fits my personality LOL.
