Hi ladies! Just popping in to say hey! Nausea and vomiting ended about 3 wks ago. The bursitis in my right knee has disappeared and the swelling of my left ankle has gone away too! They aren't lying when they say the 2nd trimester is the best! I feel great! :)
I go in for an ultrasound in one week to see how the critters are doing! So excited to see which is which! Doppler had been my saving grace so far.
Anyway, hope everyone is doing well. I have attached a 20 w belly pick. I feel huge, but I don't really feel like I look like I've got twins in there!!!

(Hope this link works)

    You look great. My daughter in law is in her second trimester too right now and she is doing much better after an awful first trimester!

    I'm so jealous of your baby bump!!! You're looking great!
    I still have no bump other than looking like I had a bit too much to eat.
    Good luck in your appointment!!
