OB Appointment

Blood Pressure: a little high
Weight: +1 - total 22lbs

I love my OB, but I am glad I am going to a specialist also. My OB nurse was not at all concerned about my lack of weight gain, which we all know is not good at this stage of pregnancy with twins. She talked all about how our body knows when to hold on to food blah, blah, blah. But I know that one baby can pull its nutrients from me, but two babies can't without some extra calories in there. My lack of weight gain tells me that the girls are using ALL my extra calories. It is just frustrating for my OB nurses to know so little about twin pregnancy. On a good note, I heard the heartbeats and they were loud and strong. She had no trouble finding them and they were just beating away.

Olivia has moved so she is laying diagonal with her head down and Abigail is squished down there at the bottom with her head right by Olivia's still. The position that Olivia is in is SO uncomfortable. She is mostly sideways and when she stretches, whoa!! When I have a BH contraction there will be this huge lump on the top of my tummy. I am not sure if it's her butt or what, but it is kinda alien like. And when Abigail moves, she is grinding against my pelvis and bladder and whatever else she can reach. Poor baby, she is probably really squished down there. Ahhh...the joys of twin pregnancy.
