Okay here is my pic from 7w2d weeks on top and my pic from this week 9w6d! Do you see any difference yet? I still just feel fat!

Sick Sick Sick a roo!

Ha! I swear every single week my morning sickness just gets worse and worse! It seems like every Thursday night it gets horrible, Friday is no fun, Saturday is usually a little better and then sunday is so, so. Monday-Wednesday seems to be easy and then I swear my HCG levels spike again and I'm cooked for the weekend!

I came home from my mom's tonight feeling like crap, almost creamed a huge deer, and then got sicker than sick when I got home! I have never hurled so much in my life! Even Dh was standing near me saying "Wow". Lol, yeah, "Wow". Idiot. I can't wait to get out of the first trimester! I am praying I am not one of those freaks that feels sick all the time.....oh please dear goodness NO!!!

Well, Things seem to be going good so far! I have had some pretty good morning sickness for a few days here and there. It seems to come and go as it pleases. Some days I have it horrible and throw up alot and then it seems to dissapear for two or three days. At least its giving me a break. Either way, it doesn't matter, I am pregnant and that is all I really care about at this point. I dont care if I have to throw up 50x a day, as long as I am pregnant!

So, starting about a week ago I started trying to find the babies HB's with the doppler. On Sunday night I finally found one! It was 170bpm and sounded so beautiful!!! I couldn't find baby B though until yesterday. I turned on my right side and finally found what I think was baby B's hb. Either that or I pushed baby A up from laying on my side? Not really sure anymore. Anyway, it was slower so I am assuming it was baby B.

My next appt is at UConn for the NT scan on June 15th. I really didn't want to even do this stupid test but decided it will give me a chance to see the babies and make sure everything is okay and give me peice of mind so I guess thats a good thing. I have already told myself if the results do turn out to be less than favorable I am not going to panick. I heard you get so many false positives from the bloodwork and most of the time everything is fine so I'm not gonna put too much weight in it.

Gary and I have been camping every weekend. It helps the time fly by too, we have been taking the dogs and just relaxing up there. Its nice to get away on the weekends. I am starting to HATE my job lately. I need to think of something.....anything that I can do to make money and stay home! I just dont know that I will be able to keep working here after the babies are born. I just feel so bored here all day long, I need something a little more stimulating and fulfilling I think. Dealing with bitchy freaking old people all day is not my idea of fun anymore!

Well, I guess I will get back to my hellhole of a job and try to get something accomplished for the day! I will take another belly pic maybe tonight!

8w4d First Ob appt

Well, I had my first Ob appt today with Dr. Cluette. She was nice....maybe a litte too nice! You know the kind of person that is instanly happy to see you but they dont know you and talk too loud and happy...well that was her. Which I guess could be a good thing? I mean I'm not gonna hold her happiness against her for goodness sakes! So, it was a pretty uneventful appt. I had just about everything done at the RE's office so all we did was talk. Yippee. So, I go in a month for my next ultrasound and I have my NT scan also scheduled for next month.

So besides that I feel pretty good. I am still having some morning sickness and last night I had the headache from hell and actually had to take a tylenol and I have been feeling stuffy too, but thats about it! Hopefully everything continues to go well.

Took the Plunge!

Well, since I gained horrible amounts of weight while doing IVF and then couple that with he fact that I am having Twins, I feel like a cow! So I have been putting off buying maternity clothes.....I honestly dont know what I was waiting for. So tonight I went to motherhood, with my mother, and I got a cute pair of jean capri's and a pair of black capri's for work and a few tank-tops. It felt good to buy myself something that fit!

Also my girls on TWW have been great to me! They have been sending me some mat clothes to hold me over (thanks Erica) and even a gift card to Motherhood (thanks Maria)! Dh is getting jealous at all the packages I get! Lol! Amber even sent me her doppler! I can't wait to use it! When can you hear the heartbeat anyway???

Well enough ramblings for the day. I need to go wash my face. I think I am going to be one of those pregnant girls with bad skin......its not fairing too well now!

6w4d ultrasound and 7w4d ultrasound

Well I got back from my ultrasound and everything looks great! The babies are measuring 7w5d (one day ahead) and their heartbeats were 155 and 161! They doubled in size since last week! It was nuts seeing them so much bigger! The top picture is from last weeks ultrasound and the bottom is from today! Can you believe how much bigger they are???!!!

Next ultrasound

Well tomorrow is my last visit with my RE and my last u/s until my OB gives me one at 12 weeks. Its gonna be a long long month! Hopefully everything is still okay from last week. I am freaking out worrying (as usual) that something has gone wrong! I can't take the worry anymore. Its killing me. I know it will probably be like this for the next 30 years with them but I wish I could gain a little bit of control over it at least for the time being, for my own sanity for goodness sakes. I think when you try so hard for a baby for so long your only concern is its going to be taken from you once you achieve it. I think day and night about it, it is consuming me. Everyday I analyze my symptoms more and more and google more and more (which by the way is a horrible idea for anyone)!

I hope after I see my babies tomorrow I will calm down a little until my first Ob appt.

7w2d belly pic

I dont think I look like I have a belly yet.....I think I am just eating too much and am getting fatter by the day! Ugh, comeon belly!

Well, I finally decided to post pics of my kitchen now that its finished. It sure looks 100% better than it did and thats all I care about right now! So I will give you a run down of what we did! First we painted the cabinets with 2 coats of primer and we sprayed on 3 coats of paint. We finished them with 2 coats of polyurethane to ensure they would be nice and washable since they are white. Then we replace the countertops with wood butcher block countertops we got from Ikea. They were super cheap we only needed 2 8 foot sections and it cost us about $400.00! I also got our Farmhouse sink from Ikea for a measly $189.00! Then we did beadboard on the backsplash and copper behind the stove as a backsplash. After 4 different pain colors we finally found the perfect one called Barley by Benjamin Moore. I love it! We are still contemplating replacing the tile floors.....Gary wants to rip them up this week but personally I dont want to deal with more dust and demo in my house for a while so I am trying to hold him off. The top pic is obviously the before picture!

Oh man I am feeling so emotional right now. I can't believe that after trying to get pregnant for 3 years I am blessed with twins! It is starting to sink in now and I just can't believe it. Ugh, darn hormones. I just feel like crying (tears of joy of course)!

Double Trouble!!!

So today I am 6w4d and went for my first ultrasound and ITS TWINS! I seriously can't believe it!!! Gary and I are so excited! We saw their little heartbeats flickering too and it was just absolulty amazing! They are both measuring exactly 6w4d also so the RE that was great! I have my next ultrasound in a week and then I can be released to my OB and I can't wait!

So, besides that fantastic news at 6 weeks the morning sickness kicked in. Somedays have been worse than others but I dont care, because to be honest with you, I'M PREGNANT!!! And that is all I care about. I could throw up all day long and I dont care!

Well Gary is home with my Big Mac.....I am eating for 3 now so I think its allowed! Lol!
