Last week I ended up gaining 3 pounds in one week, which I thought was crazy! This week, I'm down 2 pounds, so I guess in two weeks I really one gained 1! So now I'm up a total of 4 pounds. My belly is also still measuring big at 24cm (24 weeks).
My peri actually explained that pressure is normal, especially as I get farther along but I'm just not used to it because last time my cervix 'gave out' and so I wouldn't have felt as much pressure. Now that I have a strong cervix, thanks to the cerclage, feeling more pressure is normal. I usually only feel it if I've been up a lot anyway so she said just to rest if I feel it. My peri and OB also agreed that the tightening of one side of my belly was actually round ligaments stretching, not Braxton Hicks. If it was BH, it would tighten everywhere, which is what I was getting with the twins. So all in all, I feel so much better. I really needed that reassurance, because I was driving myself crazy. My next appointment is next Wednesday, so hopefully I will stay calm until then.
