Weeks 12 and 13

We've had such a busy month! I can't believe that February is G.O.N.E. ! Where did time go? I'm sure I spent the most of my time being sick. ha. ha.

Last week we had our first trimester screen. It's to check for Down's and Trisomy 18 and 23, which are genetic abnormalities that can be life threatening. Really, we weren't worried at all about any of these conditions we just wanted to see our babies again! So what's a finger prick (for the accompanying blood test) and a heavenly hour long ultrasound?! Both babies heartbeats were 170 and they have grown SO much since the last time we saw them! Daddy was very impressed. They both are about the size of a plum, measuring 5.5 cm and 5.3 cm from crown to rump. "Baby B" was very active and "Baby A" just wanted to sleep. Our specialist gave us a 'guesstimate' that they were a boy and girl. How amazing would that be?! Honestly, I don't care if its 2 boys or 2 girls, OR one of each! I'm just so excited and can't wait to see how different they will be.

Saturday we went to a friends short term going away party. He's going to Chicago for 6 months for Goldman. We'll definitely miss him! Everyone had lots of questions about the pregnancy and are so excited for us!

Sunday, was a day that we spent entirely too much $ moolah $. We should have stayed home! Needless to say, our babies will have lots of Burberry to match their Mommy and Daddy! Mason Kardashian will no longer be the best dressed baby in NYC next year! haha

Please forgive the pictures being like this, but for some reason it won't change to landscape and well right now is not the time for me to get frustrated. Either turn your head or look on my facebook. haha

AND I was too busy to take a 12 week tummy picture last week. Sorry!

...Week 13...

I just left my OB appointment for 13 weeks. Dr. Yamashiro says that I can fly up to 30 weeks (if all is still well then). YAY! Especially since we have a trip planned for the end of May and we also want to go to New York and South Carolina before the babies arrive. I've gained a total of .... hold on to your seats... completely out of control... obscene amount of.... 2 pounds! I swear I'm eating and it's staying down, I just can't gain weight. I've kinda always struggled with this anyway. Regardless, I've been told I HAVE to gain 1.5 lbs per week from here on out. One positive, he said that "I scan beautifully". I'm not really sure what that means, but thanks.... I guess?!! I guess the babies are always where they need to be and he can see them clearly or something.

I can barely stand to wait until 16 weeks to find out what these babies are. Today, I found a place that can tell at 14 weeks. Umm, that's next week people! We're definitely going, although I'm not sure how accurate it will be. They said that if they're wrong, according to our dr., they will do it again. Dr. Y did take a guess today as to what they are. He's 60% sure, but if I have to wait to know 100% so do you!

Cravings so far: Right now, as in right this second, Justin can't get home quick enough so we can go get Hibachi. I haven't craved this yet, and I'm probably going to regret it later, but its all I can think about.
TOAST and Jelly! Oh my goodness gracious, I can't get enough. This is new as of last week.

Things I stay FAR away from: Tomatoes, Onions, Soda and Coffee of course.

I still have a few days before I take our "official" 13 week photo, so until then, I'm going to stuff my face full :) I'll add the picture then!

13 weeks.
Please ignore my dirty mirror. Justin wasn't home and this is in our guest bedroom
