9 Weeks

Today was our final appointment with our RE's office. We got to see two healthy babes with great heartbeats. One of them even gave us a little wave and some kicks. Since everything looks good, we got the release from our RE. It's very bittersweet. We love our RE, but are excited that things are progressing well enough that we get the release. On a super exciting note, I get to stop my suppositories. Hell to the yea!!

How Far Along - 9 weeks 2 days
Total Weight Gain - Up 2 pounds
Maternity Clothes - Not yet, but I have a feeling we're not too far off. Most pants require the hair tie trick. Lots of maxi dresses and loose fitting tanks are getting extra wear.
Sleep - Not as well as I'd like. I've been getting in a nap everyday, and sleep great at nap time. Bed time is a different story though. I can't get comfy, and the dogs make me extremely hot. They may be getting the boot from bed sooner rather than later.
Cravings - Nothing really. I've still been relying pretty heavily on carbs, and mixing in lots of fresh fruit and veggies.
Symptoms - Headaches have thankfully gone away. I'm still tired all the time. It's 10:30 now and I'm already looking forward to naps. my stomach is still all kinds of messed up. Brooke and Harrison are constantly saying "excuse you," because I'm burping all the time.
Purchases - I picked up a Snoogle yesterday, but I'm still not sure if I'm going to use it. I've heard lots of mixed reviews when it comes to supporting a twin belly later on in pregnancy.
Miss Anything - Energy. I'm ready to be able to make it through the day without feeling exhausted.
Looking Forward To - Telling H and B about the babies. They still don't know yet, and Rob and I haven't agreed on when is the right time to tell them. Today he suggested we wait until 7 months.


  1. Congrats! Very exciting!

  2. Haha! I remember all of that first tri gas!!

    Release from the RE and stopping the suppositories?! That is awesome!
