18 Week Update
How many weeks? I've made it to 18 weeks! Being 18 weeks brings back many memories for me. I was 18 weeks when I lost our precious twins (Brian and Brendan) back on September 24, 2008 due to an incompetent cervix. I was at 18 weeks with the sextuplets when I was admitted to the hospital in July 2009. With this pregnancy, I'm so happy to be at home with my family and doing normal everyday stuff.
How am I feeling? I caught a mild cold from the girls so I'm getting through some congestion and sneezing. Other than that, I'm feeling good. I do still have a touch of nausea here and there, but it has definitely decreased this past week.
Weight gain? I have gained a total of 10 pounds.
Doctors appointment? Yes I see my doctor this week. I look forward to another ultrasound. I'm happy to report that the last time I saw my doctor, I had blood work done to screen for genetic disorders. All the tests came back normal. I'm so happy about the normal results! It puts some ease to my mind.
Maternity clothes? I have finally started wearing maternity tops with maternity bottoms. My belly is just getting too big for most of my non maternity tops.
