9 Week Update

Posted Apr 09 2010 5:56pm
Whew! What a week! I feel like such a bad blogger. Chris told me a few nights ago that I better update my blog soon because it had been too long. Sorry for the short hiatus. I've just been exhausted this week. I've been keeping up with everyone else, but I just didn't have enough energy to update mine. I promise to do better moving forward.

We had our first appt with the new OB/GYN yesterday and we really like her. She was very nice and very informative. She did an ultrasound so we got to see our babies again. They are both doing well and still measuring right on track. Baby A had a heart rate of 163 bpm and Baby B had a heart rate of 175 bpm. We could actually see them both moving around on the ultrasound yesterday. It was so neat. Our sweet little ones still look like little snowmen blobs on the ultrasound right now, but we could see the heads bobbing and we could see them moving their arms and legs. Baby B was really groovin' yesterday. Dr. M said that's why "she" has a higher heart rate. She's just more active. Now, I know we don't know the sexes yet, but since the first ultrasound I have felt that Baby A is a boy and Baby B is a girl. This is how I will refer to them until I am proven otherwise! :-)

The bump is definitely growing bigger. I know I owe several of you a bump picture and I promise I will post one. I just want to post a picture where I don't look half asleep and I actually have something on other than my lounge-around-the-house pants. My GI issues have been better this week, thankfully. My doctor did refer me to a nutritionist, though. I will see her next week. I'm still hungry all the time and I never feel full. I now have an aversion to green beans and corn. I've always loved veggies but now I'm starting to not like them as much. Green beans and corn don't make me sick, it's just that I don't have any desire to put them in my mouth. They just don't sound good anymore. My dreams are still crazy too. Gotta love pregnancy hormones!

Chris and I are going to the Bluebonnet Festival in Chapp.el Hill tomorrow and I am so excited! I'm most excited about the funnel cake and lemonade that I will be getting tomorrow. I LOVE funnel cakes and lemonade! Yum! I'm hoping to have a relaxing and productive weekend. The weather is supposed to be really nice. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
