Weird Pregnancy Effects

I don't know if you call this a pregnancy effect or a pregnancy symptom. I basically can't feel my right hand. That probably sounds a little more dramatic than it needs to be. It is like my hand has fallen asleep; 24/7. It is driving me crazy! I have never heard of this from anyone else. Is this normal, or is it me and not my pregnancy that is weird?

These Babies Are Moving!!

This week has been a pretty amazing one. I have really begun to feel these babies moving around and it is the coolest thing.

Before my ultrasound last week, I was a little worried something was wrong because I hadn't felt anything yet. Boy, on Thursday that all changed. I swear they both did a complete 360 degree turn at the same time. Weird but amazing feeling!

I am going to enjoy this right now because I am sure in the not too distant future these babies are going to be beating me up real good!

We have a.......

We are so excited right now, it's a boy and ........ a girl. Isn't that amazing? The ultrasound tech said " You can be done!"

Everything looked good, no problems at all. They couldn't get a good look at the girl's face because she was sleeping on her stomach. Which is funny, this was my previous sleeping position before the babies nixed it!

I will get an ultrasound every month now, so they should be able to get what they need on a future visit.

Right now, everything is full steam ahead with nothing to worry about. Until of course, I create something in my head to worry about. Stop it........

Anatomy Scan Today

We leave in about an hour for our anatomy scan. I am nervous but excited also. Keep your fingers crossed for 2 healthy babies!!

Misunderstandings, Miscommunications, and other Misses

Struggling tonight.

Sometimes in a relationship whether it be with friends, family or a significant other it is hard not to judge yourself. Conversations can grow wildly out of control and become completely different entities than they were ever intended to be.

I sit here contemplating whether it is really worth it. It seems like such a bother. I could just be quiet. Not say a word about how I am feeling; and live in ignorant bliss. Maybe being true to yourself is overrated.

Then again, maybe it isn't.

Glucose Screening Take 2!!

Well, tomorrow is the big day. I have to go back in to try and take the test one more time! I have been pretty sick all week so I am hoping for the best. I am going to get up, take my anti nausea pill, have a little something to eat and go for it! Wish me luck:-D

Other than that, things have been going pretty good. Getting pretty excited about the anatomy scan next week. I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything is still okay with the babies. I still worry so much; but I am fairly certain I will worry about them in one way or another for the rest of my life.

I have been looking at baby stuff but still have not been able to pull the trigger and buy anything. I think we are going to order the cribs tonight though. Big move! Making this first purchase has been a hard move for me to make. Important move though. Weird, I know. We just want these babies so much that the thought of something going terribly wrong and having a nursery in the house scare me to death.

However, it is time to stop avoiding...
