26 Weeks - Weight: 148 lbs Gained: 45 lbs Waist measures 44 inches

I went to the doctor today and got 'fired' from cooking and cleaning!  So Rick has to do all the work now!!  Poor Rick.  I think I have to get a house cleaner because I don't think Rick has time between renos, managing properties and working full time!!

I worked my last full day today.  It was actually very uncomfortable sitting and having a full day meeting, now I understand why the doctor told me to reduce my workload.  I feel way too much pressure in my belly and I'm starting to get more and more cramps..likely because of my expanding belly.

The twins are slightly underweight based on their last ultrasound, 1 lb 9 oz and 1 lb 11 oz..rather than the normal 2 lbs...but pretty close and according to the doctor, everything looks good.  At the ultrasound, Naomi was shown petting Keira's back for a while, it was sooo cute!!   Keira had the hiccups and yawned too.  The twins are soo adorable, I feel lucky to have twins :)


  1. That's so cool, Tracy. I'm up at 4:30 with heartburn, waiting for the Gaviscon to take effect! It must be so cool to see the interaction like that! My ultrasounds are so clinical at this point, I don't really see wider shots that show what the twins are up to, but I hope they are comforting and supporting each other. I keep telling baby A to take care of her sister...! So happy to hear that all is well.

    Re: workload...I hear you! I haven't received those orders, but the natural order of things is taking care of this. Back is hurting, so standing at kitchen counter cooking is hard within 5 minutes, and I tried to wash the bathroom floor a couple days ago; it was comical. So yeah...I'm mostly done too!

    Keep up the updates - love em!

  2. Congrats on your last day! Must feel so good to be off work. My sympathies to hard-working Rick, hang in there!
