Well, I am 11 weeks along today. It's weird. I am so tired and so nauseous, but I don't really "feel" pregnant. I don't think that I'm showing, altough H. thinks I am. I always had a belly, but now there's a bit of a different shape to it. Maybe, I'm showing. I was down 8lbs the last time I checked, but I'm sure the weight will start piling on soon enough. I am reading a book that's for women expecting multiples, the dr. in the book recommends gaining between 58 and 75lbs regardless of how much your starting weight is. I cannot imagine putting on over 60lbs. It's just plain crazy! There is so much evidence to support what she's saying though; the multiples that are born through her practice are 35% above the average weight for multiples and spend less time in the NICU. This is a big incentive for me. I'm going to talk to my doctor next week when we're there about this book and how realistic it is for me. We go for our u/s on June 23rd, I will be 11w6d along. As you know, we are hoping that they see a third sac that day. Please keep us in your thoughts.

On another note, things are getting busy at work and at home. This weekend we have dinner at a friend's on Friday and dinner at my parents' for Father's day. Tonight we're bring the wheaten in for her shots, we already tooke the lab in. Next week, on Tuesday we have the New and Expectant Parents night with the local multiples group. I'm really looking forward to that. Also, I'm working from home next week because of the G20 summit in Toronto. My office is pretty close to the site and for safety reasons I won't be going into the office.

Anyway, that's all I've got for now.

Congratulation on 11 weeks!! When is you next scan? My symptoms are getting stronger, no puking but definitely nauseous a lot during the day and the boobs!! oh my! They are HUGE and sore! And I'm hungry most of the time. I hope it's a good sign!

Congratulations. I'm thinking about DE so reading your blog is an inspiration for me. All the best with your pregnancy.

My fingers and toes are crossed that you have a great scan and that the sac is visible.

I had no idea that the summitt was going to be so huge! I've been so busy at work as well because of it, and I'm north of the GTA!

Have a great weekend!

I so feel you on the weight. I was a bit high, then I started the BCP's and the lupron the next month, and I've gone up a pants size...highest pants size ever. If I am pregnant with twins, and they want me to gain all that weight, I'm not sure how I'll ever lose it...Oy. However, a friend of mine who had identical twins gained lots of weight without really trying all that hard, and then lost it so fast after the delivery that she ended up with gallstones! She didn't try to lose it,it just 'fell off'.
