11 Weeks Update

If you look up the definition of a Bad Blogger, you'd see my picture.  There hasn't been a lot to report, and I've been so exhausted. 

How far along? 11 weeks....WOO HOO for double digits!

Weight gain/loss: Still no gain.  I've lost the bloat weight and I'm actually down by 1 pound.  Most people say "dont' worry, it will come" but I want both babies to be born at a healthy weight.  According to Dr. Luke's book, I should gain about 20 pounds by 20 weeks!?!?  I'm trying not to stress about it because I had some extra weight prior to my BFP, so I keep telling myself the babies are eating away at my stored fat.

Maternity clothes? I'm wearing maternity bottoms but most of my tops are regular tops.  As for dresses, I've bought a couple of maternity ones, but I can still wear many of my pre-pregnancy ones as well.

Stretch marks? No more than the ones I started with....

Sleep? Not so great.  I have no trouble falling asleep, but staying asleep is an issue.  I still take my Ambi.en on occasion, but I really do not want to take it every.single.night. 

Best moment since last update? Mr. MBC brought me roses to celebrate the 4th anniversary of our 2nd first date.  So sweet.  Also, seeing the sweetest girl in the world stand up in church and announce that "my daddy and Mrs. MBC are having twins!". 

Food cravings: Cheese....anything with cheese, especially mac and cheese

Genders: Unknown...should find out around Christmas.  I've got to find out if the anatomy scan is done at a regular appointment or if it's scheduled seperately.  I'd love to surprise my parents and my MIL with bibs, onesies, or something at Christmas to announce the genders.  This is going to require a little bit of fibbing on mine and Mr. MBC's part, but it's with good reason.

Belly button in or out? Still in.  I have a scar from having my gallbladder removed at the bottom of my belly button.  I wonder if/how the scar will come into play.

Movement? None yet.  Everyone tells me I should start to feel flutters within the next month or so. 

What I miss? My energy :(  A good friend of mine said that she felt a world of difference when she hit 12 or 13 weeks.  I'm counting the days!

What I'm looking forward to: My appointment next Thursday.  I'm nearing the end of my 1st 4 week stretch of no dr. appointments.  It's been quite the adjustment from weekly appointments for bloodwork and ultrasounds.  Dr. H said we'd be able to hear the heartbeats at this appointment.  YAY! 

Milestones: Hitting double digits, only 20 days left of progesterone vaggi-tabs


  1. Early on in my pregnancy I was REALLY worried about my lack of weight gain. I was down about 12 pounds by the end of my first trimester. Now I'm worried that I'll gain too much weight! LOL! Something magical happens during the second trimester and the weight gain usually starts then. Happy double digits to you!!

  2. I hope the second trimester is kinder to you. I know I feel so much better now. Actually, things got much better around 11 or 12 weeks.

    My fingers are crossed for you!


Have you seen my baby carriage?
