I know I took quite a long hiatus. I have to be honest. It was pure superstition and fear that kept me away. The week leading up to 24 weeks were filled with anxiety. I just couldn't imagine making it past that magical number...and I didn't want to blog for fear that I would jinx anything. I can't believe I made it past there and things are still going well. I'm still scared. I love my little eagles so much and I cannot wait to meet them in September...I love their little kicks and I love my growing belly...and even my swollen feet because it means I'm getting closer to bringing them home. Here' s what's been going on it bullet points.
-Work has been getting harder. I try to sit down as much as possible, but there are still times when I need to be more active and it's definitely tough. I'm just going to keep taking it one week at a time.
-Speaking of work, I recently received a horrible peer review from my colleagues. I basically scored the worst out of all the residents in my class. I received comments like "always tries to get out of work" or "I don't appreciate all the times that I have had to cover for her at work" or "honesty is important for gaining the respect of your colleagues" or "needs to work harder" or "only works 50% while at work and tries to get out of as much work as possible." It was horrible. I basically cried for a day straight. I didn't ask for any of this, the miscarriage, infertility, IVF, twin pregnancy and I'm doing my best to make it work, but apparently my peers don't see that. Even people who knew how hard the past 2 years were still gave me bad marks. It's just frustrating because I have been working as hard as I can. Have any of you had trouble in the work place due to loss, infertility, or pregnancy? Any tips?
-And also speaking of work, 2 of my friends announced they were pregnant. While I am super excited for them, it still stings that they were able to get pregnant so easily. Mostly though I'm just so thankful for my twins!!
-Okay and now time for the twins and this pregnancy. They are still a boy and girl. At 24 weeks, they were both measuring 1lb 9oz. I love feeling their kicks and listening to their heartbeats. It is so wonderful.
-I'm getting really big!! I even had to move to medium scrub top to accomodate my growing belly. It's impressive.
-I just started getting awful reflux and heartburn. Nothing seems to help at this point, but I'm going to talk to my doctor about it at my check-up tomorrow. I'm going every other week now, which is definitely helping me with my sanity!!
-We bought our baby stroller. Or rather my in-laws got us our baby stroller, but we picked it out this weekend. We got the Baby Jogger City Select in Red!! It's awesome!!
I will try to catch up more tomorrow. I'm trying to study as much as I can now before the babies come so I gotta hit the books!! I've been reading and following along!! I may even try to post a belly pic soon.
Anyone have any good nursery ideas for boy girl twins? Or recommendations for cribs and car seats??
