I’m starting to show. So it’s time to start taking photo’s. I’ve been reading on how much weight I should gain and I’m not to happy about that. But that’s all a part of the process.
Pregnant with twins 11wks
I remember when I was pregnant with my daughter 9 yrs. ago the baby weight didn’t go away for sometime. But I believe I made one mistake that keep the baby weight hanging on. Before I left the hospital I had got on a the birth control called Depo-Provera. That kept me from losing any weight.
It took me two yrs. to realize I needed to get off the birth control. At the time I had been going to school and had a weight conditioning class 3 times a week and I went to the gym but I still wasn’t losing any weight. And I tell you within a month of getting off Depo I had lost so much weight.
So this time around I will be a wiser in the choices I make.
twins, two sacks
So when I found out I was having twins, I was about 9 wks. The picture to the left is of the two sacks. The doctor said that because the sacks are divided by a thick line in the middle it made it more likely that they will be fraternal twins.
Scientist refer to fraternal twins as dizygotic, involving the union of two eggs with two sperm to crate two embryos. As shown in picture below. “Twins, Agnew 7”
fraternal sperm embryos
So my hope is that I will have both a boy and girl or 2 boys. I have a daughter who is almost 9. yrs. We will see what happens.
So, I recently wrote that I was pregnant. Well I’ve found out I’m having twins. OMG! That’s what everybody has been saying.
When I went to my first GYN appointment twins was the furthest thing from my mind. I don’t know of any on my side of the family or on the fathers side, that has twins. I surely wasn’t taking any fertility pills, so OMG is right.
Although, about a week before I went to the doctor I had a conversation with my mother, about how I was feeling. I had been overly tired, aggressively hungry, and I had said to her “the way I’m feeling, It could be twins.” But that was one of those things you say, one of those things you blurt out but don’t mean!
But the funny was on me! At first it was total shock. I think me and my mothers emotions were felt all through the hospital, when the words “YOUR HAVING TWINS” flew out the doctors mouth without even a second thought. The doctor was unsure of whether to congratulate us or to say nothing at all and just go on like she never said anything..
After that initial moment of shock wore off we started to realize this was going to happen. Those TWINS are on their way. February 12, is coming and we better get ready.
So, I’m having a baby. Which I’m very happy about. I have a little girl who is 8 and she has wanted a sibling for a while.
The difference this time is I will be doing it alone. Which is the sad part. I of course wanted to be in the situation where the father was there. But unfortunately after 4 years in a relationship with the man I am now pregnant by, I realized he doesn’t want to have responsibility and a family.
I’m not mad. I just figure it is his loss as I know that me and my unborn child are worth the love and happiness. Now I can only focus on the beautiful bundle of joy that awaits me in 6 months. And although things in life don’t go as you plan, I’m sure God will grant me the true family I desire in time.
I have to say, I am very appreciative of my mother as I go through this journey. She is very positive about the situation. I told her I’m going to be breaking the “curse” she put on her children. She had three kids and we all had only one child of our own. So I am the only one left to be able to have a child. So it is very exciting for us. I know this baby will be loved extremely.
So, I say to the father, it’s your loss!
