Here were the basics of my first 13 weeks…
Morning sickness? Some but only occasionally and sometimes was brought on by being hungry! With my first two pregnancies I had some nausea but nothing horrible so I was thankful that this was even less. I have read that with twins, morning sickness is often worse than that of a singleton pregnancy.
HUNGER! I really haven’t been eating a ton like you would expect but I have woken up in the middle of the night starving! I was not about to get up at 4am to eat so I would muscle my way through it and go back to sleep! So to prevent waking up starving I try to make sure I get a snack in before bed.
Weight gain: Surprisingly only 4lbs so far! I often feel overwhelmed at the unbelievable weight gain that is expected with twins. 24 lbs by 24 weeks is a good goal, as it is most important to gain weight earlier in the pregnancy than later.
Fatigue: I was absolutely exhausted every day. I at first assumed this was just from keeping up with my girls (2 years and 15 months). Once I found out it was twins I could definitely tell I had two babies and two placentas forming with in me, as I had to take a nap almost every day. Having twins takes a lot out of you!
Emotions: Very quick to cry at almost anything, this is rare for me!
I feel so blessed to have had such a smooth pregnancy so far and pray daily that God will continue to bless this pregnancy.
