At the 18 week mark I am feeling pretty good, well besides the fact that I still feel horribly sick from this cold. Belly wise though things are going great. I gained five pounds over the past four weeks which is pretty on track for a twin pregnancy. My tummy also isn't feeling like it is going to rip open anymore so I hope this trend continues.
I've been feeling more movement in there and last night I felt two swift kicks on either side of my tummy so I am thinking they have decided to finally make their presence known.
I also dragged my sick self to my first prenatal aquafit class on monday night. I just hated the idea of showing up on week 2 of the session and not knowing where to go, and not knowing anyone. Getting in the pool felt great and the work out was really light which is fine as I joined the class more to meet other preggos and to just be in a pool every week. The hardest part was realizing how heavy I felt when I got out of the pool!
We've made a few baby related purchases recently and are just waiting to go a little nuts after we find out their gender next week!!!
So far we have purchased four packs of diapers..... I assume we will need about a thousand more, a video monitor, a wipes warmer.... you might think this is unnecessary but I just think that putting a cold wipe on a warm tush cannot feel pleasant, and we just purchased a book on healthy sleeping habits for twins.
I can't wait to start buying for the nursery!
And now for the belly.....
I think it is rounding out a bit and definitely think it is significantly bigger than my 16 week belly.
Happy Wednesday! ..and just in case you missed it... here is the twin bump at 14 weeks and at 16 weeks!
