I can't believe I'm already 8 weeks and two days! We've been overjoyed that things have gone so smoothly this far. No blood, no bad cramps, nothing unusual. These babies are here to stay! Of course I won't feel completely comfortable saying that until the first trimester is over. We pray everyday that our babies are continuing to grow strong and healthy.
So I've been lazy and haven't hung my chalkboard yet...next time, I promise! But I did take a picture this time. I still don't have a bump, but I can't wait until I do!
Babies are the size of: Raspberries
Total weight gain: Still down 2lbs since pregnancy
Maternity clothes? No
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Sleep has been awful. I toss and turn all night, have to get up early in the morning to relieve a very full bladder, and I'm constantly exhausted.
Exercise: I'm way too tired!
Miss Anything: Energy!
Movement: No, but at this stage they should be moving their little arms, legs, fingers, and toes like crazy!
Food cravings: Nothing really sounds good lately. Although I really wanted Sour Patch last night.
Anything making you queasy or sick: My mom's lasagna. It killed me.
Labor Signs: None
Happy or Moody most of the time: I've been getting a little moody lately. I have to watch myself.
Looking forward to: My first appointment with my new OB next week. I can't wait for an update on my little babies!
On Monday we celebrated Chris's birthday, and I've planned a romantic picnic downtown at the Capitol tomorrow night. I'm trying to enjoy every moment I have alone with my husband since a baby changes everything. Especially two! I love this picture of twins fetal development at 8 weeks. The human body is so incredible.
So life is good! I've been wanting to change the name of my blog since Itty Bitty Ivie doesn't really fit for twins. Any suggestions?
