So the weekly updates have stretched into bi-weekly updates, mostly to coincide with my doctor's appointments. On the in-between weeks, there's just not a whole lot to update!
Weight Gained: 31lbs. I'm getting a bit nervous about this! I know that a LOT of the weight is fluid, because I have pitting edema up to my knees on most days.
Cravings/Food Aversions: I'm combining these two for this update, because it seems that I'll crave something (let's say.... Ramen Noodles, for instance) and as soon as I eat it, I get nauseous. This is NOT a good cycle and for the past week, nothing has sounded good to eat. The thought of food in general makes me a little queasy.
Symptoms: Nausea and swelling (broken record, anyone?!). Also, this may be too much information, but since it's my blog I'm saying it anyway. I've started leaking colostrum. And it's freaking me out, majorly.
How I'm Feeling: Tired! I just can't sleep, which is distressing because sleeping is one of my all-time favorite pastimes.
Exciting Stuff: 1. Today, I have zero stretchmarks. I'm sure they are coming, but I'm celebrating small victories. 2. Our crib bedding is here, in my house, and I love it! 3. The cribs should be here by this weekend, so our nursery will start looking like babies might live here.
Weekly Worries: My glucose tolerance test is at 9:15 tomorrow morning- please God let me pass! I really think that a diabetic diet might kill me. :)
We also started to register tonight, which terrified me. I had a mini-bawling-breakdown in Babys-R-Us, because I have absolutely no idea what we need to take care of these babies. A few texts/calls to friends with children made me feel a little better, but Paul's response was the most helpful. He said, "Do you know how hard it is to kill babies? Babies are strong, and ours will survive. We are going to be just fine. If the twins get here, and we realize that we don't have what we need, we'll buy it!" This is why I love that man.
