Okay, I figured everything out regarding this weight business.
1. I gained 10 pounds during IVF so I will just go ahead and add that to my pregnancy weight. I won't need to gain as much because I got a head start.
2. I used to have muscle from working out. I haven't worked out in almost 8 months. Muscle weighs more than fat and since I am slipping into flabby land quickly I probably am gaining cushion and losing muscle.
3. I drink TONS of water. Drinking water burns calories so I probably burn thousands of calories from the cold water.
4. Online I saw a healthy full term baby with all the parts (sac, placenta, etc) weighs about 17 pounds. So for two I really only need to gain 34 pounds.
I have no idea how to explain why my belly isn't measuring big. But I'm not a doctor. :)As was mentioned before, the babies weigh perfectly so who cares.
I failed the one hour glucose test and have to do the three hour. I also have iron definciency. If I go on a no carb or sugar diet how the french toast am I supposed to gain weight? This is just getting silly . . .
Only two weeks until the 4-D ultrasound!!! I am SO excited for that! I want to see what the babies look like so bad. We're taking a crowd with us too, my mother in law, my mom, my grandma, my great grandma and my aunt. We'll have to see if this is the first ultrasound that I cry for! I know our monkey boy looks like hubby so it is up to our little lady to carry some of my features.
