twelve weeks plus some

Random pregnancy craving, and it was very very tasty. Sweet potato cut up, tossed with olive oil, rosemary, salt and a little pepper, oven roasted until melts in the mouth. Yum. Probably too many carbs, though. It hasn't been a good week for me for carb counts. Tomorrow is another day and I'm planning on being good starting tomorrow. I have another yogurt attempt on my counter this time made with extra dry milk powder and whole milk greek yogurt which I found at Huckleberry's. I hope it is successful. That whole milk greek yogurt is not cheap! But it is super super super creamy and yummy.

Twelve weeks. I had my mid-wife appointment yesterday. Somehow I lost two pounds first trimester. Not complaining too much. I've been careful to make sure I was eating enough and I'm not sure where the two pounds went. I definitely don't look smaller than six weeks ago. Not worried at this point. I am scheduled for an ultrasound next Friday, though. I wasn't going to have one this early, but my mid-wife's eyes got really big when feeling my uterus, while noting that it was pretty large for date. I'm a twin, though most likely not fraternal. I'm 90% sure I'm not having twins. My brain can't even go there. We do not have seat belts for six kids. The 10% of me will be comforted by the ultrasound when it decidedly says that I'm not having twins. First of all, there was only one spirit baby. Second of all, I measured large for date with Oona early on. Third of all, it is my third pregnancy and my uterus could just be stretching really easily. Little guy has plenty of room in there. But it will be nice not to have a small niggling doubt in the back of my head. Could you imagine if I was having twins? That would be a huge joke on me...


  1. Oh Gretchen, can you IMAGINE?! No way dude. Remember how huge i was, and take solace that there was only tiny Becky in there. I'm excited to hear about the ultrasound though! If you need the girls to come over and play, just shout. xoxo

  2. woohoo, baby pictures early! :) no twins; just one super kicky stretching out the mama early baby :)
