Now at 14 weeks, the babes are about the size of a lime! And my baby belly can no longer be confused with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I’ve been instructed to eat as much as possible, as often as possible… and I do! Trying to eat an additional 1000 calories a day is not an easy task, but eating cheesecake for breakfast every morning should be helping me out on this venture. It’s a small price to pay for the good of my offspring.
My college friend Crystal and I have been emailing a lot, and she’s been sharing tons of twin knowledge. Her twin girls just turned one! So the adventures of twin babies are fresh on her mind. She also thought to send me her twin books! Who knew that books were even written specifically for twin parents?! I’m about halfway through the Twinspiration book, and it’s SO interesting! And helpful! And I’ve started adding TW to the beginning of any word that begins with IN… it’s such a TWINformative book! Not to mention TWINteresting! Now that I spell that out, it’s kind of annoying.
We had an OB appt yesterday, and all is well! Sadly we didn’t have an ultrasound at this visit, but we got to hear their heartbeats, and that was enough for now. I’ve been really emotional lately, and even the smallest things make me cry. Like when I think about how excited I am to meet our little duo. I just can’t wait to hold them. That’s all.
