Ahhh...finally! We reach the third trimester. :) Actually, I'm a little late getting this post out.lol. I'll be fifteen weeks on Wednesday. I cannot believe how quickly this pregnancy seems to be going.
For the most part - I feel great. My blood pressure remains manageable. And believe it or not - it is much lower when I up on my feet and active. :) Which makes me happy. I tend to get tired by mid afternoon, and back aches are starting. But I welcome it all. Oh, and did I mention heart burn?? It's horrible. I can literally drink a bottle of water and get heart burn. ha! I remember this with Lilly too... I had heart burn from about 10 weeks all the way until the day of delivery - and then, boom. It was gone.
As I said in my last post, I gained five pounds in two weeks. CANNOT believe that. Before we found out that we were having multiples - I had only planned on gaining twenty pounds. That went out the window!! So far, at almost fifteen weeks, I've gained about ten pounds. It's a little depressing. BUT I have to tell you all that I went to buy new maternity pants yesterday (for work!) and I am still in the same size pants as I was BEFORE I got pregnant. THAT made me very happy. The majority of the weight I have gained has been gained in my tummy (all baby...grow babies grow!) and in higher regions. :)
Well...just wanted to give a quick little update on how things are going. Clif and I go back to see Dr G on March 30th, and then hopefully two weeks after that we will know the sex of our little Skittle's. SO SO SO excited about finding out. I feel like I will finally be able to start planning and decorating. Before I was really feeling two girls and a boy... but now I am HOPING for two boys and a girl. Only time will tell...
Thank you all so much for your continued prayer for me, babies, and for Clif too! :) Speaking of prayer, if you think of it... please say a prayer for a blogger friend of mine - Annette. She lost her second baby a few days ago, "Little Bee". Annette and her hubby suffered the loss of their beautiful little daughter, Valentina, just a short time ago. I can't imagine the pain that they are feeling as of now. :( Love ya, Annette!!
