I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted. On one hand, it has gone by pretty fast since I was busy traveling to Philly, working, and studying for my big exam on Saturday. On the other hand, time feels like it is inching by. After my big test on Saturday, I spent the rest of the weekend hanging out with CJ and watching movies including Breaking Dawn, Thor, and Captain America. It was a nice, relaxing weekend and it was definitely tough coming back to work today.
I have a good excuse for not writing more also in that I have been super nauseous...as in all day and night, waves of nausea with occasional retching (no vomiting yet, although I would probably feel better.) The only thing that makes me feel better is eating, ironically enough, except that when I'm done eating the nausea comes back with a vengeance. I'm also more exhausted than I have ever been. I go to bed around 8:30 at night and that's after lying on the couch after eating dinner form 7pm on. My boobs are also bigger and sore and I have a constant metallic taste in my mouth. Most of all, I am loving all of these symptoms because it reassures me that the little eagles are doing well.
Oh I forgot my last symptoms, almost paralyzing fear...I'm so scared that we are going to lose these babies. I don't know how I'm gonna make it through the next month, but the symptoms are definitely helping, so there's that and lots and lots of prayers!!
As far as I know, the little eagles are doing well. I took a sneak peak on the ultrasound on Saturday and they had both grown and their heartbeats were flickering away. My next real ultrasound is on Friday and I can't wait!!
Thank you to all of my wonderful commenters and followers! I'm at 49 followers, which is awesome!! I have been reading and trying to follow along, but it's harder now with how I'm feeling.
