Belly at 12 weeks...

Forget about buttoning my regular pants!!! I have now fully transitioned into my maternity pants with a few exceptions .. a couple of my yoga / sweat pants are still comfortable. I also had to put away most of my fitted shirts as they are just not flattering with a piece of belly sticking out below!

I am now officially done with all the fertility medications both injections and vaginal progesterone... yeah! No more human pin cushion and no more icky sticky mess. The bloating that came along with the injections has gone away too which is very nice. At my OB appointment on Monday, my weight had not changed from 3 weeks before - which really I think is due to the step down of the dosages of the intramuscular medications ... I am sure that will not be the case at the next visit. The 5 or 6 lbs gained with the beginning of the cycling medications can now even themselves out nicely :-) At this point I am up about 10 lbs from my pre-cycling weight.

Next visit is 4 weeks away which seems like such a looooong time given all the appointments we have had throughout the first trimester. If all is well then ... then another 4 weeks and it is time for the mid-way ultrasound. L&J are planning to come up for the ultrasound so we can all find out the genders together - it will be very exciting.

Now here is to patiently waiting for the little ones to kick me! I have felt a little something a few times but nothing definitive yet ... can't wait!
