15 Weeks

It's definitely nice being in the 2nd trimester.  Everyone at work knows now and it's fun to talk about on occasion and I like to admire my growing bump constantly.  Plus, I'm finally feeling better.  It's been a little over a week since I last threw up and the nausea is much more manageable with food now.  I'm still exhausting and getting up to pee 1-2 times each night, but I definitely feel more like a normal person with a nice sized bump and it's only going to get bigger.

The other thing I did this week is borrow a doppler from my mom's friend.  Even though I have access to the ultrasound machine at work, I think that the doppler is less invasive and still very reassuring.  I love hearing the thumping little heartbeats!!

I had my 15 week appointment on Tuesday of this week.  All we did was talk, BP, and listen to their heartbeats.  Baby A was at 143 and Baby B was at 151.  My weight is up a whole bunch (I don't even want to record it on here), but let's just say that I should have no trouble making it 20lbs by week 20!!

My in-laws came to visit last night and it's the first time we have seen them since I got knocked up.  My mother is law is so cute and just kept hugging me and almost crying.  They also got us some nice gifts.  Some onesies for the little ones, a cool shirt for CJ, and some great and much-needed maternity clothes for me.  All in all it was a great evening!!

I still can't quite believe that this is real, but I keep praying everyday that we get to bring these babies home safe and sound in September!!

13 weeks and 2 days!!

I'm still here and the little eagles are still doing well.  I'll try to post more later, but between work, my nausea, and exhaustion, it's been hard for me to do anything extra except for work, eat, take a walk (if I'm lucky), and sleep.  I'm trying to follow along on blogs, but that's been tough too.  I'm also still terrified to lose my babies and somehow by not blogging, I'm feeling the passage of time easier.  That doesn't really make awhole lot of sense, but that's just this weird feeling that I have. 

We had our NT test and bloodwork last week and we are low risk for Down's Syndrome and it was great looking at the babies for such a long time.  Next up is my 15 week appointment with my OB.  I checked on the babies yesterday and they still have heartbeats and were moving around, so that's good!!  I'm also definitely popping out.  It's pretty funny, but I love my belly and I'll be buying more maternity clothes this weekend out of sheer necessity! 

I'm looking forward to feeling the babies move because I hope that give me more reassurance.  I'm definitely feeling better about this pregnancy and I just keep repeating...we are bringing these babies home!!

Happy Friday!!
