22 weeks

It's official. Today I reached the point in my pregnancy where I officially feel like a cow. I think that's pretty funny since I'm only 22 weeks along. The doc measured me yesterday at 32 weeks, and I have gained between 16-18 lb depending on the day.  After measuring me, my not regular doctor said, "Wow, that's big." I really wanted to say something sarcastic too him, but I refrained.

Since getting my cerclage, I have been ticking along day by day doing normal things. With my mother here to help, I've been getting in some naps and generally able to take it easy. I'm completely pampered with certain parts of life in that she has taken over the majority of cleaning and cooking. Her presence has certainly made it easier for me and E loves having her here.

Some other traumatic and plot twist worthy events have occurred too, but I haven't the emotional wherewithal to write about it yet.

The best news going on in our lives is that E is growing like a weed and the anatomy scan showed the babies are healthy. E's pretty excited that he'll have both a brother and a sister to play with...

  4. I thought it was quite normal to look bigger with twins...your doc can go suck it for his comment.

  5. I measured at 32 weeks when I was only 21 with twins (just last week) and my doc was like "well, yup, twins" so I feel pretty normal about it - except that strangers all seem to think I am about to go into labor lol
