16 week appointment
Thu, 04-21-2011 - 9:01pm

I had an appointment today with my regular OB. I haven't gained a single pound this pregnancy (I started out a bit overweight), but I was very concerned about this being a twin pregnancy with no weight gain to day. In fact, I was kind of freaking out about it yesterday. Well, the Dr. is completely unconcerned with my lack of weight gain...in fact my fundal height is 23cm!!!! I was shocked by this number, considering I'm only 16 weeks. The babies are doing great. Their heart rates were 143 and 141 (down about 10 bpm from last month). That's it my anatomy scan on May 10th!

Good for you for not gaining any weight yet! I hope I am that lucky. (But I'm overweight anyway) So far I've only lost weight, lol. Looks like babies are growing just fine though! GL at the anatomy scan! Are you going to find out the genders?

We actually found out the genders last week. We went for a 4D u/s. It was SO cool! So, we know we have a boy & a girl.
I'm overweight, too. I also lost weight in the 1T. I think the not gaining has just been the rest of my extra fluff re-distributing itself for the babies. :smileywink:

It sounds like losing weight is the trend around here! I'm definitely there, having lost 5 so far. I'm glad your babies are doing well and I hope the time flies for your next appt!
