About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog! Me and DH are 27. We met at the end of our senior year in High School and married three years later on June 25 2005. We have been TTC for over 3 years. Now we are expecting twins in June. I hope to encourage and be encouraged through our journey.

Last visit to my RE

So today was my last appt with the RE. It wasn't sad but I think that is because I can literally see in the waiting room for my OB's office. So I will be making frequent visits.

On a different note the ultrasound today was great. Just a little info before I continue. My RE's ultrasound machine is very large and crisp when it comes to images but they don't have a doppler so you can't hear the heartbeat. The OB has a doppler but her ultrasound machine stinks! The screen in like a little laptop and its very grainy. So last Friday when I went I heard both heart beats. It was exciting but not as exciting as I thought it would be. Today completely different. On my RE's machine they were so clear and "baby" looking and.......I saw them moving around like crazy! OMGoodness it was 1,000X better than hearing the heartbeat. I cried and then wished DH would have been there. Man it was amazing.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

My little June Bugs @ 9 weeks





How far along? 9 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Babies are now the size of a green olive!
My little embryos have now officially graduated to fetus-hood. Adding to the excitement, a Doppler ultrasound device might be able to pick up the beating heart. With basic physical structures in place and increasingly distinct facial features, baby is kind of starting to look like...well...a baby!

Weight Gain? I'm still thinking 2 lbs

Maternity Clothes? Just the bella band

Stretch marks? none.

Belly button in or out? In

Sleep? I get up to use the bathroom around 1:00 each morning and have such a hard time falling back to sleep. Other than that I wanna go to bed at like 8:00, I feel so exhausted after working 10hrs. I feel like the further along I get the sleepier I get.

Foods I am loving? I'm still not loving food but if its salty its my best friend.

Foods I am hating? Chocolate...normally I LOVE it.

Best moment this week? Being able to hear the heartbeats for the first time even though it was only like 2 secs per baby.

Movement? none

Symptoms? Morning, Day and Night sickness, fatigue, dizziness and the dreaded constipation.

Genders? No clue

What I miss? eating

What I'm looking forward to? Feeling movement, my baby books says maybe only 1 more month!

Weekly Wisdom: Take a book to the OB, she could very well be gone for over an hour delivery a baby while you sit in the exam room half naked bored stiff!

Milestone: Getting Pregnant

Emotions: Still a little weepy and snappy. I feel like I'm getting better, maybe.

My official due date is June 23rd but she said she wont let me go past 37 weeks which would be June 2nd. But she said to expect the babies at the end of May. That's only 6 months!!! Crazy. So if they really are coming at the end of May I might need to come up with new little nicknames instead of June bugs....

First OB Appt Friday

I have my first OB appt on Friday. I have a list of questions written down to ask her but I don't have as many as I would think I should have. Do you have any suggestions of really important questions I should ask?

I think next week will be my last appt with my fertility doctor. I would like to do something nice for the office. I was thinking about cards for my favorite ladies and then maybe an edible arrangement for the entire office. Did any of you do anything for your last appt with the doctor? If so any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

My little June Bugs @ 8 weeks



How far along? 8 Weeks!!

Baby's size? Baby's are now the size of a raspberry! Baby is growing like mad, putting on about a millimeter every day and continuing to straighten out in the trunk. Though you can't feel it yet, baby is moving those little arms, legs, and (now only slightly) webbed fingers and toes like crazy.

Weight Gain? I'm thinking 2 lbs

Maternity Clothes? Just the bella band

Stretch marks? none.

Belly button in or out? In

Sleep? I get up to use the bathroom around 1:00 each morning and have such a hard time falling back to sleep. Other than that I wanna go to bed at like 8:00, I feel so exhausted after working 10hrs.

Foods I am loving? I'm still not loving food but some days are better than others.

Foods I am hating? Chocolate...normally I LOVE it.

Best moment this week? Seeing both babies still growing on schedule.

Movement? none

Symptoms? Morning, Day and Night sickness, fatigue, dizziness.

Genders? No clue

What I miss? eating

What I'm looking forward to? Seeing the OB this Friday.

Weekly Wisdom: After you have gaged yourself brushing your tongue don't keep going back.

Milestone: Getting Pregnant

Emotions: Still weepy and snappy. Mainly with the people I work with. I didn't realize how much common sense they lacked:).

I swear my stomach isn't that big. At least not from the babies. I have been very bloated this past week...I'm not one of those girls who push their stomach out to look further along.

On a different note I turned 27 yesterday. My sister called me and asked how it felt to be a mom on my birthday. I told her I kinda don't feel like one yet. Is that weird of me to say? I mean I love them already but I don't feel like I'm a mom.

PS I look very tired in this photo. I tried to get a better one but all the others DH took came out blurry. I should inspect them before I put the camera away.

My little June Bugs @ 7 weeks




How far along? 7 Weeks!!

Baby's size? My little June bugs are the size of a Blueberry. Baby's brain -- both hemispheres! -- is growing fast, generating about one hundred new cells every minute. Arms and legs are emerging as joints start to form, and a permanent set of kidneys (baby's third!) is now in place

Weight Gain? My weight fluctuates so much anyway, between 3-5lbs so I'm not really sure if I have gained any.

Maternity Clothes? I bought a bella band this weekend. My pants will still button but after about 5 minutes of sitting my stomach is hurting pretty bad.

Stretch marks? none

Belly button in or out? In

Sleep? Is getting better. I sleep most of the night but right before my alarm goes off I wake up a million times.

Foods I am loving? I'm still not loving food but eating has gotten better. I had Ninfas the other day and it was WONDERFUL

Foods I am hating? Chocolate...normally I LOVE it.

Best moment this week? Seeing both babies still growing on schedule.

Movement? none

Symptoms? Morning, Day and Night sickness and fatigue.

Genders? No clue

What I miss? eating

What I'm looking forward to? Being 2 months

Weekly Wisdom: Asking for a prescription for nausea medicine doesn't make you weak.

Milestone: Getting Pregnant

Emotions: weepy...I feel like I have been chocking back tears on everything lately. Yesterday at church the opening prayer had me in tears and as soon as it was over we had to shake hands and greet people around us. The first guy probably thought I was a fruit cake! hahaha

My belly is definetly getting bigger. Even DH said something the other day. The pic I think makes it look bigger than it really is. I guess thats what you get with twins though!

Sorry I don't have pictures up, not that anything has changed. I haven't felt like doing anything this weekend.

I have been feeling a little down this past week. I am so use to doing everything around the house that when I see DH putting away the dishes or folding laundry I feel like a terrible wife. Between the nausea and the hormones i feel like a completely different person. Is this normal?
