The Frankenbaby Chronicles

Two girls, three cats, some frozen sperm, a doctor's office, and a big dream.

So we're 16w today! Now that things aren't as dramatic, it really does seem like time is moving more quickly. It helps that we are in a bit of a routine and have moved out of the "living out of boxes, where is my shirt?" phase of things and now can get to things like unpacking nonessentials and perhaps even hanging some art sometime. I hope so!

For the last 5 days or so, I have been getting occasional pain twinges on either side of my belly. They sound kind of like round ligament pains but most people describe RLPs in relation to a sudden movement like rolling over, or something like a sneeze. This is not the case for me, but rather, they will just happen at random times, usually a couple in a row. I have all of these speculations but really I just have no idea. I'll chalk them up to Phantom Pains of Pregnancy and will ask my midwife about them in two weeks if they continue.

Two weeks from Friday we go for our big anatomy scan and also hopefully get to see the goods. We were in the "not sure if we want to know" camp for a short time, then definitely wanted to know when we were having twins... when we lost the twin it was hard to lose the idea of finding out the sex early. So here's hoping we get a good peek!

I'd also REALLY like to lose the B-shaped belly and get more of a D-shaped belly. D says pregnant and B just says fat. I'm so ready to be a real pregnant lady! But hopefully I'm getting close if these aches and pains are any indication. We'll see what happens.

Not sure if we'll be taking a picture tonight or not. We have a houseguest coming for dinner, and well, I don't think anything's changed since last week.

Those twinges could be the baby moving! I felt ours move bang on 16 weeks :)
