Our Pregnancy: 11 Weeks!

One week closer to reaching the end of the first trimester! Yippee! :) I am completely exhausted and had a fair amount of queasiness over the long weekend, but other than that I can't complain. I really just want to rest and sleep all the time lately. It is so hard getting up and out of bed with the alarm on work mornings. I crave sleep! A nap is a definite must today, I'm hoping to catch one soon and then just try to make it through the day. I really, really hope my energy levels recover at some point - it's making the work week very difficult for me to say the least.

It's only been a week since we got to peek in on the babies last but I'm already so ready for our next appointment on the 15th just to make sure they're growing well and looking happy and healthy! I think seeing the babies looking good gives me a little "boost" and helps make the hard days a little easier to get through - as long as the babies are happy and healthy all is well! :)
How Jenn and Chad's babies are growing:

Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.

She's already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won't feel your baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.
I know I'm not supposed to be feeling any movement yet and I'm still not 100% convinced I am - but every now and then I've had a very tiny fluttery/bumping sensation and it makes me wonder... we'll see as the weeks progress if that develops into more noticeable sensations! I can't wait 'til they're big enough for their mommy and daddy to be able to feel and see! :)

I'm still having some of the old brown blood discharge. I thought maybe it was going to stop after very little since Saturday, but it seems to be back to about what it was on Friday today. Sigh. I wish I knew why it was there and why it was taking so long to work its way out! Never having bleeding in a pregnancy to this much is disconcerting to say the least - knowing it's common in IVF and especially in a multiples pregnancy, and knowing many before me have experienced similar to much worse and been fine is somewhat reassuring, but only to a certain extent. I am fairly certain nothing I've done or not done has contributed or caused it, but I can't help the "what if" wonderings - should I be doing something differently? Drinking more water? Should I ignore it completely? I don't know if there is an answer and I know the OB's office wasn't at all concerned about it so I guess I should try not to be too...

I'm looking forward to taking a new belly pic tonight and seeing if there's any noticeable difference yet. I don't feel like that much has changed in the past couple weeks, but we'll see what the picture says! :)

Belly picture from this evening - looks mostly the same as the past couple weeks though I've noticed the upper part of my stomach is actually starting to stick out a little more from everything below pushing up and moving things around!! (Ignore giant puffy eyes please! :D )


  1. Wow! 11 Weeks already! Time is flying by! I felt my first flutters with these twins at 11 weeks! :) Fingers crossed that your energy returns...that stinks. Can't wait to see the belly pic tonight!

  2. Wow! I can't believe you are almost in the 2nd trimester!! I love reading your updates!
