The goods from yesterday’s scan at the RE. We cheated and saw him in between scans so we could get good pictures and guess the sexes. Guessing the sexes ended up being more complicated than even the RE thought lol. So although we saw things we aren’t saying anything cause it’s likely not accurate. Still fun to try though, it was comical.
I can’t believe that they look like babies, real tiny itty bitty babies. A bit alien still of course but OMG Baby B turned itself around fully, looked at the camera and we got the best picture of his/her little face! I’m pretty sure it has my nose as well, poor thing, Kate agrees lol. Weird to see similarities so early on. It’s the Italian genes showing through!
Baby A’s heart rate was 156 bpm and Baby B’s was 163 bpm. They were both measuring right on target, Baby A being one day ahead of schedule. We took a video again but it was long and pretty boring so I’ll just leave you with the photos.
How far along?
Size of babies
Baby A is 53.5mm and Baby B is 50.7mm
Almost completely. Pants for sure.
Total weight gain?
Started to show yet?
None yet. Hope to avoid these completely.
Terrible. Ok well, it could be worse, but still I’m sleeping off and on all night and having bouts of insomnia. Nothing I do or don’t do seems to affect it much. Peeing is a give in and I’m ok with that, the not going back to sleep I’m not ok with. My back and my legs/hips hurt a lot too.
Random bouts of anxiety, roller coaster exhaustion and energy, insomnia, sensitive skin, acne, starting to have emotional moments, sharp pains in my groin area, mild cramping, breathlessness, and constant baby brain!
My normal appetite, energy, pants that have a zipper and button.
Nothing in particular.
Anything making you queasy or sick?
Cooking anything, not eating, eating too much, water on an empty stomach and random smells.
Won’t know for a while yet. Guessing two of the same sex, Kate thinks one of each.
Dear god no!
Belly button In/Out?
In but shallow already.
Wedding ring Off/On?
On most of the time, off at night and when I’m swollen.
Happy or Moody most of the time?
Both. Happy to be pregnant and married to an amazing woman who is going to make an awesome mom. Moody but keeping my cool as best I can.
Best moment this week:
Seeing the babes on the ultrasound. Baby B jumped twice and turned around fully to face the camera!
Looking forward to:
Our next ultrasound. The second trimester!
