19 weeks

How Far Along: 19 weeks and 3 days

Size of Baby: "Your baby weighs about 8 1/2 ounces and measures 6 inches, head to bottom — about the size of a large heirloom tomato"

Picture: no baby pictures but here is a horrible belly pic....sorry I decided to take it this morning while I was getting ready. I am going to start forcing my self to take them when my husband gets home at night....

Weight Gain: Dr apt last week I am still -6. No weight gain and this was a discussion this time. She said to start eating more meals a we will see when I go back.

Belly: getting big although I dont feel that big for almost 20 weeks with twins :)

Sleep: a thing in the past... swimming before bedtime has helped me get more comfortable. its getting up every 2 hours to pee that keeps me up.

Milestones: half way mark reached for 38 weeks (twins full term)

Movement: still no strong movement which kinda worries me but the DR said everyone is different

Symptoms: dizzy, tired all the time, and new thing...sitting down and feeling fine but standing up and feel like I am going to wet my pants

Food Cravings: the most horrible craving I can have....fountain COKE! I know, I know, I have limited myself to one a day

Gender: BOY AND GIRL found out July 18, 2011

What I'm Looking Forward to: strong kicks from both babies so I know they are there and moving

Dr updates: Due to PCOS, they recommened 2 glucose test. Well, I did my first one last Friday and unfortunately I failed it. I now have to do the 3 hr glucose test which I am doing on Monday. I pray I pass that one. She says often people will fail the first and pass the second....and I know, drinking sodas is not going to help. So I have two reasons to cut it out, caffiene and GD.

You look great!! I'm sure in the next few weeks you'll start gaining, that's when I did, but extra meals don't hurt :) I seem to pretty much snack all day or I get low blood sugar. I get the dizziness too and found eating helps!
Sorry about your glucose test :( I haven't taken one yet but hopefully you can kick that soda habit!
