Here I am at 23 weeks pregnant with my second set of twins. I am feeling eh, not too bad. Since I am over halfway through this pregnancy, I figured I would share some answers to some commonly asked questions:
What am I craving? Sweets. Chips A’Hoy cookies, Star Crunches, and Pop Tarts mainly.
How am I feeling? Easily exhausted. Sore abdomen, sore legs, and headaches. Super heartburn and indigestion. Oh, and insomnia has set in.
What do I miss? Eating. Everything makes me sick with heartburn and indigestion, and the twins have my stomach squished to the size of a tennis ball so I can barely eat much at all. Yet my taste buds and brain scream “ I am still starving!” oh, and sleep.
Weight gain? About 20lbs. Although it feels like 50.
Baby movement? Yes! They are acrobats! Just like my last twins. They are especially active in the evening.
Best moment this week? I had some painful Braxton Hicks contractions and I could distinctly feel a baby’s head during them!
Maternity clothes? Please, I am measuring about 30 weeks pregnant so I have been in yoga pants for a while now. I just recently had to switch to specifically maternity tops because they are made to be longer and cover my new bump.
