I apologize, I’ve been gone awhile. Hubby had a terrible flu a couple of weeks ago, we both had obnoxious colds last week, I celebrated my first anniversary of owning my dental office, and this week Hubby and I had 3 evening meetings between the two of us. I’ve been wanting to jump on here, but just haven’t had the time or energy.

Everything is going well, I’m feeling good despite the cold, but am just amazed at how fast 2014 is going by so far! Do you agree?

My weight gain was pretty steady and minimal in my first trimester. But this week has been another story, 3 lbs in this week alone and my bump is definitely starting to make its appearance. I’m not complaining, it reassures me that the babies are growing.

We are heading to Hawaii the first week of March and I am SO excited, Hawaii is my happy place and Hubby and I are in need of some R & R and some uninterrupted time together. However, this is probably the last vacation we’ll go on until who knows when. Again… complaints, life will be just as wonderful, just different!

Here are a few “bump” pictures. I don’t have one from this week which has been the most dramatic, but I’ll include that one soon.

11 Weeks:


13 Weeks:


14 Weeks:


Our next appointment is on March 13th, I will be 18 weeks, we are hoping we can find out the genders at this appointment. If not, we have our detailed scan at 20 weeks, so hopefully we’ll know what we are having by the end of March. After my next OB appointment, my doctor wants me to come in every 2 weeks! She wants to closely monitor my cervix….fun! I’m just hoping I can work out all the appointments with my work schedule, my doctor’s office is about 20 miles from my work, so it’s not easy to get there in the middle of a work day.

Hope all of you are doing well! Miss you!

  1. EEEEK!!!! You are so adorable! I’m loving last weeks bump! I think it’s so awesome to see the progression each week… grow babies, grow! So glad to hear from you and know that you and the babies are doing well! Enjoy Hawaii!!!

  2. Oh my gosh, stop with your adorable bump! You look amazing! Glad to hear everything’s going well, and weight gain is good! Don’t forget you’ve got two in there, and I’ve read that weight gain can fluctuate. So maybe you’re up 3 lbs. this week, but next week it’ll only be .5 lb. Enjoy Hawaii–so jealous! And I’m looking forward to finding out what you’re having!

  3. Wowzers!! You go mama. I haven’t had much time to post lately (these boys are a HANDFULL!), but I’m secretly watching and reading… πŸ˜‰ You look great! Take care of yourself and keep baking those little turkeys…. πŸ™‚ Woohoo!
