7w5d...Happy Monday

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 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.


  1. I had to be put on zofran after losing more than 10 pounds in the first 14 weeks of my pregnancy, so I understand the severe Nausea. Some minor tricks that seemed to help a little bit: Sour candies made my body think it was creating extra saliva because of the sour and helped between eating. Avoiding smells was the biggest one, but since I work at a deli/bakery there's not much I could do about that. Good luck and I hope you feel better once you are out of the first Trimester. I'm 25 weeks now and still sick. I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

  2. Oh hey I think I missed a few posts behind but yay! Twins! Me too! And you are only a few days ahead of me!

    I'm nauseous day and night, too, basically constantly. It's just awful. Keeping my stomach from being empty seems to help but it's so hard to eat that much because my baseline is still nauseous!

  3. I just found your blog and am now your 50th follower :) Congrats on the twins! SO exciting!!! Best of luck getting through the nausea- that part is SO hard I know :)

  4. YAY!!! I just caught up on my reading... This makes me happy.

    Don't focus on the possibility of loss. Focus on the fact that you have 2 beautiful little ones growing. I am so excited for you!!!

  5. Oh, I'm totally with you on the needing to eat constantly to quell the queasiness. I feel much better when I'm grazing all day, unless I eat too much! So much for loosing a few pounds in the first trimester. I'm already up 3 and really shouldn't be!
