Here is the 11 week, 3 day picture


I forgot to post it earlier.
Today I had my 12 week appointment with my Dr. I love her. She gave me this huge binder that the hospital put together for all pregnant couples. It contains info on the hospital, nutrition, classes, labor, caring for newborn, breastfeeding and much more.

She checked for the heartbeats and she could hear two! My uterus is measuring at 16 weeks (larger of course cause I have twins). I gained about 3 1/2 lbs since my first appointment. She reminded me that I need to gain about 20 lbs by 20 weeks. Bring on the custard! I wish there was a Kopps Custard stand downtown. I asked her when I need to take out my belly button ring and she said she'll give it a month. She told me how to take it out - how to pull the ball out and pull back the ring, it was kind of funny. Then she told me she would just take it out for me at the next appointment. I will start ultrasounds in four weeks and have them about every month. They will check to make sure the twins are growing at the same rate.

I'm feeling a little more confident about the pregnancy but I'm still nervous. I'm trying to enjoy being pregnant. Oh, I actually have to go clothes shopping this weekend. My current clothes are getting tight.

How beautiful! My pants are getting tight and I am 9 weeks! I know with twins we can expect it to get a bit tighter sooner, but it is still amazing to see.

Glad everything is going so well!

I've been reading your blog for a while, but wanted to chime in now.

Those photos are incredible. And beautiful. And a little miracle.

Congrats!

Hello Tracey-
Congrats on the great news!! I would like to ask you for some advise about IVF as I will be going down that path this coming February. Any help and advise you can provide will be really helpful.
