twinpack: 15 weeks

i'm guest posting for kerri over at sixuntilme today - check it out! if you found your way here from her blog, welcome! :) 


i realize i didn't start answering these questions as early on in my pregnancy as i did with your brother. being pregnant (with two of you) is a lot different the second time around when you're chasing a toddler and growing humans! don't get snippy with him about it. and don't be bragging, bro. from here on out i'm keep up with what happens until your arrival!  


How far along? 15 weeks (compare to 15 weeks with my son here)

Maternity clothes? gosh yes, for weeks now.

Stretch marks? nope

Sleep: pretty good, my almost-15-month-old is my alarm clock at just the right time each morning.

Best moment this week: my mom and are checking out some big kid's consignment sales, which are great when you're expecting two and have one who is quickly growing!

Miss anything? not especially

Movement: my friends who have twins told me i may feel movement earlier, and i was skeptical, but i think for a week or so i've been feeling some movement here and there. :) it doesn't feel like two babies - yet.

Food cravings: nothing in particular... kind of similar to my last pregnancy, when i see or hear about something and it sounds really delicious, i have to get it soon because i can't stop thinking about it.

Anything making you queasy or sick: just strong smells make me feel kind of queasy. like foods with a strong aroma, too much perfume/cologne, cleaning supplies, etc. 

Gender: we'll find out on march 25!

Labor signs: it's way too early for this question

Symptoms: a growing belly and babies

Differences at this point between your singleton pregnancy and twin pregnancy: they're pretty similar at this point except for the hip issues and pain in my left leg that starts up around my hips and radiates down my left leg to about my knee. i've been to the chiropractor, i stretch, i put ice on it every night ... not a lot helps. sitting and standing make it worse which is pretty much what i do on a daily basis. i feel fine when i wake up every day, but after a few hours... not so much. i also run out of breath very easily. i noticed this from the start, even before we knew i was having twins. i kept wondering, WHY am i so exhausted after carrying my son up a flight of stairs? this is ridiculous! i know why. 

Belly button in or out? in

Wedding rings on or off? on

Happy or moody most of the time: depends on who you ask ;) 

Blood sugar: pretty good, we're checking out what's happening during the night since i woke up with numbers higher than we'd like to see a couple times this week, but the majority of the time things look pretty good. i've had my dexcom off the past few days but it's time to get a new one put on. 

Looking forward to: knowing what these babies are and getting moved into our new house (which is a blog post for another time, we're building a house - which was already going up when we got pregnant, and yes we have enough bedrooms)!
