Pip and Pop are feeling a little top heavy this week, with heads that are equally as big as the rest of their bodies. Seriously, look at the video. You can see them. Their oversized heads are starting to develop hair follicles while nail beds are forming on the fingers on toes. They are also now able to do somersaults and forward rolls. Again, see the video. One baby performs for us!
EXHAUSTED. Bloody noses. Lots of bloody noses. Sore boobs. Lightheaded/Dizzy. Aching stomach. Sharp pains in left ovary region. Queasiness.
How I'm Changing:
Nothing new. The nurse at the RE said that much of my bump is now uterus and baby, not just swollen ovaries. Although my ovaries are still swollen and big, they have come down in size A LOT. I am still having complications from OHSS and SCH.
What I'm Eating:
Gatorade. More Gatorade. Peanut butter. Almonds. Chocolate covered almonds. Dairy. Avocados. Fish. Jalapenos.
Hot tea. I would even be happy with a cup of decaf hot tea! I was told to drink caffeine before my final RE appointment to get wriggly babies for their video debut, but it was SO HOT outside I couldn't even consider my beloved hot tea in the middle of the afternoon. I drank an iced tea instead. It wasn't as satisfying as I hoped it would be.
Belly Button Watch:
What I'm most excited about:
We graduated from the RE on Monday and have our first OB appointment on Wednesday. Big week! At our RE appointment we saw them wriggling around and moving at our last appointment! Here, look:
