PG - 10 Weeks 1 Day - Great Ultrasound!!!

So I've past what I feel is my milestone ultrasound from a viability perspective. It was actually better than both Leo and I thought it would be. We were both worried that growth would have slowed down because we've been so busy the last week, but it was the exact opposite. I'm measuring at almost 11 weeks by now. Baby A was 10 weeks 6 days and Baby B was 10 weeks 5 days. So you know what that means! No more progesterone suppositories!!! V. Good! Hate those annoying but necessary buggers. The heart rates were great again. I think Baby A was at 160 and Baby B was at 167. We were able to see arms, fingers and thumbs, and legs. It was really cool.

Of course I woke up with a sore throat yesterday. What with the fluctuations of temperature and being around Phoebe all the time with her coughing without covering her mouth, it was bound to happen. We went grocery shopping today to get ready for our New Years Eve/Day parties we have with our friends. Can't wait! Leo is also making us homemade wonton soup and egg rolls for dinner.

I did buy some maternity clothes over the weekend, so I'm glad the ultrasound went well. Leo was able to help me find some cute things, so I don't look dorky. I need to post some pics of some of the clothes I wear. I think my style is a little like Gwen Stefani. I love black, but I love my bright pink or leopard print tights. I get lots of compliments on both of those. So dowdy maternity clothes are not my thing. Leo was great at being able to help find cute things. And I got two pairs of maternity tights. Those are awesome! Definitely more room for my rapidly growing belly!!! I haven't bought any maternity jeans yet. I tried some on at Kohls yesterday, but they were hideous. Made my butt look really bad. I think I'm going to case out the consignment shops in the area and see if they have any designer maternity jeans. I'd really like something not that expensive, that doesn't look like "mom jeans". Basically something comfortable that makes my butt look better than it really is, since lipo is not an option right now, LOL.

Yay!!! Congratulations! I'm so happy the ultrasound went well.
YAY! That is fantastic news! So happy for you guys! As for maternity jeans, I found the secret fit jeans at Motherhood to be very comfy and stylish. They had lots of different cuts and colors and they were inexpensive. And the secret fit can be worn through the whole pregnancy because the band is a breathable lycra. I liked them. :)

Yay. I'm so glad your u/s went well! What rapidly growing babies you have! Overachievers already.

I recently broke down and bought some maternity clothes. I bought one pair of maternity jeans from Old Navy. They are too big in the belly now (obviously) but the rest looks good.

That's wonderful news, have fun shopping. Hmm, I wonder if Gwen Stefani has a maternity line.

Yay for a great u/s! I know I was SO happy to be done with those suppositories too (except I had to go to 13 weeks!) They are so messy! My mom found me a pair of maternity jeans at Kohl's for Christmas. I had given up on finding any, because I am so freakishly tall. She said there was no tag on them, and there was only one pair, so she had my lil sis try them on. I can't believe they fit PERFECTLY and are SO long-I can wear heels! WooHoo! Not sure if they were an old style, or a pair that was made to long, but it was like they were there just for me! I'd love to see what outfits you will put together. So far I only have two 3/4 sleeve shirts and two short sleeve ones-I'm getting kind of sick of wearing them! What is up with maternity sizing? I have some shirts in a small and some in a large!

hey congratulations that's great news! some babies already ahead of the curve, I'm very impressed.

Re clothes, I found jeans pretty much impossible to find a good pair, I'm not skinny enough to start off with for the designer ones, and the others are either hideous or too baggy or fell down all the time. I gave up and wore skirts instead.

Wow! Twins! :)

Your maternity shopping sounds fun. I'd love to see some pictures of the outfits you've found. :)
