A few facts for Week 11

I have been really enjoying reading about pregnancy and what to expect with multiples...I came across some advise for what kind of maternity clothes to wear in the book, When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads.
Here are the words of wisdom: For clothes with extra roominess in the belly choose: a denim jumper, a cotton tent dress or a jersey cat suit...so which one will it be...only time will tell, but I think I am leaning towards the cat suit:)

I discovered my "baby bump" this week. It is not visible in clothing yet, but it is there!

My 11 week doctors appointment was on Wednesday and I was able to hear both of the babies heartbeats via Doppler. They were both 160bpm....very strong.

One more week of my first trimester and into the second:)

10 Weeks and Counting...

Today I am 10 weeks along and I am feeling much better! The past 5 weeks have been filled with a lot of sleeping and not eating (morning sickness that lasts all day...no fun). I am really looking forward to the 2nd trimester and feeling a lot better, having more energy, and putting on the lbs. We found out that because we are having twins we are automatically classified as a high risk pregnancy. I have my first appointment with the specialist on February 25th. The specialist will take full measurements of the babies and go over all the risks/complications. The good thing about seeing a specialist is that we will get an ultrasound each month. I am excited that we are going to see the little munchkins that often!

Here is to a healthy final 2 weeks of my first trimester:)
