9 Weeks - Ninja Babies!

Just got back from my first appointment with my OB (officially done with the fertility clinic once insurance and payments are resolved - that's a whole other story) and it was wonderful! The highlight of my day WEEK was seeing my two little babies wiggling around like little dancing gummy bears! Both babies are measuring where they need to be, their hearts are fluttering away, and they're flailing their arms and legs like tiny ninjas. Seeing that was the most amazing thing. I am so relieved to know that both our babies are still developing just as they should. My heart is overflowing!!! 

I have an appointment set up with a Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist since I'm at a higher risk of complications carrying twins. I'm actually thankful I'll be monitored closer because I'll get to see my babies that much more. I also like to be very in-the-know of what's going on, so seeing two doctors will give me lots of information. 

Ah! I'm so excited!

Sorry, I like can't think straight or stay still because I'm filled with so much JOY! I love my babies!

Here's an update: 

How far along? 9 Weeks 1 day
Babies are the size of: Grapes
Total weight gain: Down 4lbs since pregnancy. I think I'm just losing muscle weight since I haven't been working out.
Maternity clothes? No ma'am.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: It's getting better, but some nights are still rough. 
Exercise: Lovely spring walks, but I still haven't gone to the gym.
Miss Anything: TMI: I miss my small boobs! I really need a new bra.
Movement: They're too small to feel anything, but they are moving!
Food cravings: I still want sour patch. I tend to ignore my cravings instead of satisfy them.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing right now!
Labor Signs: None.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy :)
Looking forward to: Our wedding anniversary! 

We were going to tell our families about being pregnant at Easter butttt we keep pushing it later and later. Now we're thinking the first weekend in May because Chris's parents will be in town. Can't wait's hard keeping everything hush hush!

And here's a cute photo of our spring picnic last week. Aren't the mountains gorgeous?

No my husband isn't wearing's a compression sock from his surgery ;)


  1. You could always try to satisfy that craving with the sweet/sour notes that are in Sour Patch - try eating a candied or sugar coated lemon slice. That way you can potentially satisfy your craving and avoid eating Sour Patch. :-)

  2. What a beautiful photo of you two!!! You are covered in joy!


Thanks for stopping by!
