So, finally, the Tomlin Twin update (newsflash music, please): Henry is weighing in at 1 lb. 8 0z., and Cadence is just behind hime at 1 lb. 7 oz. This is SUCH good news, as we all know, as they will most likely stop growing anytime between 32-24 weeks, as is the norm for twinkies. All their organs and parts measure great, heartbeats are excellent, and they are in a yin-yang position. Henry has his head in my low belly, and Cadence's head is in my rib cage. Thus, the searing pain I have been having in that area on that side.
I have gained 14 pounds, 10 of which have been in the last 10 weeks. So I guess I am averaging about a pound a week since 14 weeks. I am pretty happy about this number, as it shows I am gaining, but not overly so. I had gained 25-30 pounds in the months befor TTC when my period did not come for 5 months (during my grandmother's cancer and death: it'll be one year tomorrow), so I will still have a lot of weight to lose post-partum, but I hope it stays somewhat under control.
I do have a new Tomlin Twins DVD, but am too tired to try and fuss with that tonight. I will post pics soon. I probably will not be able to capture this, but one funny thing that happenned was Henry was poking/punching Cadence, and she put up not only both arms but BOTH LEGS in front of her face in defense! What a little yoga baby! She looked like a ball of limbs.
