I was worried about how Travis would feel and he was totally fine with it. He said they can fish and hunt plus they are gonna be daddies little girls anyway. Good answer. The rest of the ultrasound was amazing. With these level 2 ultrasounds they look at everything brain, femur, spine etc. Everything looks great and babies weigh about 5 ounces now. Me on the other hand weighs more than 5 ounces. On Friday I went to my ob appt for regular routine check up. I have gained 10 lbs. which doesn't seem like much except for the fact that you gain it all in your middle section. I am starting to feel the effects of our little girls on my body. I am starting to get my baby bump for sure. It makes it harder to bend and do anything for that matter. I have been wearing support hose since 8 weeks and thank god because I am starting to get little varicose veins. I have since switched to medical compression hose to avoid any further damage. HA HA! I still have acne all over my chest back and face hopefully this sunshine will dry some of it up. We will see. I am no where near as tired as I was in the first trimester but I still can take a nap everyday if I can. I am feeling little flutters but no full blown kicks yet. Dr said probably around week 20.
Now for the fun stuff. SHOPPING! Travis and I have both agreed no matching matching on a daily basis. We want them each to be their own people. I am trying to avoid dressing them in all pink as well. Of course that gets a little hard. I bought another crib, changing table and dresser. Travis is still busy remodeling the basement for the girls play area and next we will move to the nursery. He has been slowed down a bit because he dislocated his shoulder hanging drywall 2 weeks ago. Everything is a work in progress including our little ladies. Next ultrasound will be June 20th which will be 20 weeks. They will confirm genders at this point and we will hopefully have names picked out by then.
