Rants/Raves/Questions? I feel
bad that I’m not as engaged with this pregnancy as I was with my first. I feel like the second child is getting
the shaft already and he’s not even born. Also, any tips on how to stop obsessing about weight gain? I know it's healthy and I'm within the guidelines, but it sure is difficult watching the numbers on the scale go up, especially since it's happening so much earlier this time.
either starving or nauseated. No
in-between. I know the nausea
lasted a long time with my first, but this seems excessive. Also, I've been having a hard time running lately. I still make myself do it 6 times a week, but I don't run as fast or as far.
Upcoming appointments? Anatomy scan
on Tuesday and monthly appointment on Wednesday. We’re bringing my 2 year-old along to the anatomy scan. I have the feeling my husband is going
to miss most of it.
What would you most like to learn and why? Japanese. My husband is mildly obsessed with
Japan and I’d love to be able to take a family trip there without feeling
totally out of my element.
How many weeks? What size is baby? 21 weeks, endives (boy/girl twins)
Rants: Pregnancy rage, yes rage, showed up for me this past week. My first pregnancy I was weepy, but I'll take that any day over this uncontrollable rage. I'm definitely going to bring it up at my next appointment.
Cravings: Chocolate Ice cream and fried pickles. Not at the same time. That'd be gross! Upcoming appointments?
2nd anatomy scan to follow up on parts that we didn't get quite enough measurements on last time. I'm one of those who gets faint when lying on my back while pregnant, so I was so uncomfortable, I guess they figured it'd be easier for me to come back a second time than continue scanning the babies. My 5th month OB appointment is the same day.

How to optimize our investments for our financial future. I feel pretty confident that I'm maximizing what I can at this point in my life, but is it enough?! That worries me, especially with twins on the way and a preschooler already here. I want to know they'll have a secure future too.
