Welcome Third Trimester; Growth Ultrasound

23 12 2009

I cannot believe it – I am about to embark on the journey that is the third trimester, WOO HOO!!!  I am overflowing with happiness and gratitude and shock and disbelief.

I had a growth ultrasound today – my “little” ones are rock stars – our little girl’s weight was estimated to be 2lb 13 oz (85th percentile) and our little boy’s weight was estimated to be 2lb 12 oz (82nd percentile) WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!  I was hoping for at least two pounds and this just blew my mind and I had a smile on my face all day.  I could see their sweet little faces – it was amazing.  I have gained 35 pounds so far – a little ahead of schedule but I could care less – I do not have gestational diabetes and the babies are kicking ass and taking names!

As for pregnancy and me – I still have crazy heartburn but it is not as bad – I am on 75mg of zan.tac before bed and I try not to eat big meals and I have learned to fall asleep sitting up.  My tailbone feels like it is going to explode at work when I go from sitting to standing and my ankle bones are nowhere to be found at the end of the day – my ankles and feet swell from sitting all day.  I try to keep my feet up under my desk but that only helps so much – as soon as I get home, I throw them up on the coffee table on a pillow.  So, all in all – not bad and after hearing about how wonderfully the babies are doing, it makes it all worth it and then some!  

I really could not ask for more this holiday season – we have everything we ever wanted and more than what we could have dreamed of.  My one desire is that all of you get the same thing.

What an awesome baby-grower you are!!! So happy to hear your babes are doing so splendidly. I’m sorry that you’re still plagued by the heartburn/reflux but be comforted in the fact that I know exactly how you feel. Seriously. Exactly.

I also know exactly what you mean by having everything you could possibly want this holiday. In fact, i was just writing a blog entry about the very same thing! Merry Christmas Eve.

So happy for you lisa. Hooray for your little super babies! What great weights, they are thriving inside their mummy! Happy Christmas to you all x

Great news! I definitely wouldn’t worry about the weight gain. I think you want to gain more early on, since your stomach will be so squished soon that you won’t be able to eat all that much in one sitting. I’m pretty sure your weight gain will slowly taper off, but having packed such a good amount on each baby by now is a real blessing.
Happy Holidays!

Horray the 3rd AND LAST trimester! Won’t be long now. Take it easy, take it slow, with twins you grow much faster and bigger, time to really enjoy lots of R and R to keep the babes in. Just 7 more weeks till your full term! Just 7 weeks, crazy eh?
