PG - 7 Weeks 2 Days - Suck it in Baby!

Not that the baby has to, just me. For the first time, I had to suck in my gut (as much as possible) to button my trousers this morning. I don't think I'll be able to button them next week, so I'll be starting the rubber band through the button hole trick, wearing long shirts and looking to see if those Bella Band things work for me. I guess I'm getting big so quickly because it's twins.

I had a meeting with the nurse at the doctor's office today to discuss first trimester screening and other pregnancy do's and don'ts. She ended up mentioning that I probably still have some anxiety about whether or not this pregnancy will work out, and I was honest with her that by now, I do not. And it feels really weird. But we've had three miscarriages and one successful pregnancy. All were through the RE's office, so we really know what good and concerning betas look like, as well as good or concerning ultrasounds, heartrates, etc. This pregnancy is so textbook perfect like Phoebe's was, so I feel fine.

So that said, nothing had better change in that respect. I'd like to go blissfully through the rest of this pregnancy. Worrying about the normal things like avoiding epidurals, C-sections, etc.

I've noticed that my pants are all of a sudden snug (7w5d). I guess it's true twins make you bigger sooner. Yikes. I ordered a bella band. I hope that works for me for awhile.

Good luck with the rubber band. With my luck, the rubber band would break during a meeting and shoot across the room. Fun times!

Here's to stretching bellies! I just moved into my maternity work pant this week-they feel SO much better, not constricting at all. Let me know if you like the bella band, I still haven't decided to get one or not.

So happy that it seems like it will be a boring (as boring as a miracle can be LOL) pregnancy for you. Fabulous!

Woo-hoo to 7 weeks. I have been thinking about epidurals and c-sections..I don't know if I can take pain..I nearly died from my lap, d&c, hysteroscopy which were done all at one go...

Anyway, here's to the bella band. I had it on until my 12th week or so and gave up. My hips grew too wide after that. :)

Congrats Heather about the twins!! Guess I haven't checked in for a while and have just read your last five or so posts. You must be absolutely rapt. I am jealous of course. But you deserve this. Take care. x
What an awesome thing to have such a sense of peace!! Maybe because it's your second AND twins... but regardless, you will be a beautiful, hot, pregnant mama!
~~HUGS~~
This is so exciting! Here's hoping you stay right in that place of calm confidence. You have worked so hard to get here and you deserve to enjoy this pregnancy! Hope I'm right behind you...after Monday's ultrasound I hope to join you in feeling calm and worrying about normal pregnancy things.

I loved the rubber band trick when I was preggers. I practically lived in sweats and big shirts.

My pants will probably be the same way at 7w2d, as many of them were tight pre-pg. Blah. Let us know how the rubber band thingie works if you give it a try. Good luck!
