Another Pregnancy Ticker! (Cuz I am addicted)

Friday, March 27, 2009


I totally, 100% peed in my pants overnight. Not peed the bed, peed my pants.

See, with the twins, if I do not continue drinking water ALL day, and all night, I do not feel good when I wake up and have migraines. I was so exhausted last night that I guess I didn't wake up to go to the bathroom until the sudden trickle feeling I had on my leg. I jumped up and that is when it just started gushing out! I had absolutely NO control over it AT ALL! In fact, I was running, while it ran down my leg, trying to hold it in but apparently my bladder was SO full that it couldn't be kept in. I got to the bathroom, my panties were soaked, and I still had to pee buckets!

Man!! This makes me completely nervouse for the 40 ounces of liquid that is mandatory to be in my bladder for next weeks ultrasound!

2nd Trimester

Well, I am officially in the second trimester and I think I feel worse than the first! I am more tired, naseaus, not sleeping, and having bladder pain all the time from needing to go potty!

EVERY single smell in my kitchen makes me gag. I open the fridge, blah; I open the spice cabinet, blech; I cannot take it anymore!!

I am going to go take a nap!

Happy 12 Weeks!!

Well, we are officially in the second trimester! Hooray! I am so glad to be in the second trimester, and to be able to see the babies on April 2.

About 20 minutes ago, the doorbell rang and to my surprise there was a big box with a flower logo on it.

Flowers? For Muah?

Hmm, it's not my birthday, anniversary, and DH hasn't done anything wrong to apologize for so. . .

I opened the box and the most beautiful bouquet of 12 mixed colored roses were there with a note from my IP's!! I got a little teary-eyed of course, they are the most generous and deserving 2 people I have ever met, and I am amazed and blessed to be their surrogate!! Thank you T & S!

It's been kind of quiet here in Twinville. No more naseaus to speak of, and no more spotting. Sleep has become irrelevant of course with all the potty breaks in between, but really who needs sleep anyway!?

My next ultrasound is on April 2 and I am so eager to see how they look! I know IP's are too. This Friday marks the great 12 week - 2nd Trimester beginning and that is monumental, especially when it's someone's dream finally coming true!

No movement that I can feel yet, though I am fully rounded and wearing maternity clothes even though I'm not sure it's all baby. It looks like it, and that is fine with me as long as no one think I am fat! :)

Cravings right now are pretty non existant. I mean, for crying out loud, in the EXACT same moment that my brain says "oh YUM!" it also say "gross, gag me!" and I end up not wanting to eat anymore!

On a fun non baby note, DH and I are trying to take a honeymoon (honeymoonish)
FINALLY (after two years of wedded bliss) possibly to the beach!

Threatened AB!?

So I had some bleeding two weekends ago that really scared me. It happened again after a 4 hour shift on my feet at VS. So I called Dr. M and he said not to worry that it is normal, but to call my OB and try to see her sooner than I had planned! So I call my OB's office and get the doctor on call. He says taht most likely I am miscarrying! And that it is just a wait and see thing. Rhat!! Wait and see, come on just show me the babies and make sure they are ok. So I scheduled an appointment to the OB for two day aways and the spotting stopped within a few hours of me calling.

The morning of the appointment I was on target for the hour drive. I got DD and I out of the shower with half an hour to dry my hair and get dressed. I googlemapped the directions after I plugged in the curling iron, and to my dismay googlemaps said it woudl take me an hour and a half! Which means I would have to leave 5 minutes before I got out of the shower! I frantically dress DD and myself, and we left the hous with wet heads and no makeup!

I sped the whole way there, got lost in the freaking parking lot(!) and arrived at 1:17. The girl at the front desk said that I had until 1:15, and unfortunately I was two minutes too late. I broke down in tears, but they didn't even care that I had driven an hour and a half. They told me I could have an ultrasound order to check o the babies, but that I would have to come another day for my appointment.

I was so frustrated, and couldn't stop shaking and crying. IM assured me that it was fine and we decided to go to the adjacen hospital and see if they could work me in so our drive wasn't for nothing. Fortunately we were able to get in to see the ultrasound tech.

I was called into to the room and no one else was allowed in. I tried to look at the tv and see the heartbeats and I was able to see Baby A's heartbeat right away, and felt great. The tech said she couldn't tell me anything, that the doctor was going to have to tell me. I struggled to see Baby B, let alone see his heartbeat. Then we switched to internal ultrasound, and the tech turned the whole screen away from me. We were talking and I jept saying, can't you just tell me yes or no that they are both alive. . . she took a deep breath and clicked on something, then said "Ok, yes, I just found Baby B's heartbeat, they are both alive" and she said we could bring in IM and DD. She apologized for the way she had to be quiet, but the order said threatened abortion (or miscarry) and she couldn't allow people in the room in case of babies without hearbeats. We were so understanding and just happy to see both babies alive and well.

Both IM and I are a bit nervous about my appointment tomorrow. We just worry that the doctor may not be as nice as we hope based on the fact of not allowing me after the two minutes. If we do not mesh well with her or like her, we may look at finding omeone else. Hopefully though, she is great and we will love her!

9 Weeks and Counting

So as you can see by my baby widget, I am 9 weeks and 3 days along. I have also been very absent because of the upcoming "Baby & Kid Expo" this Saturday where I am exhibiting my photography business for the first time. I have been working my butt off, and still have a few things to do. I am sooo tired and fatigued carrying the twins, and with the work into the show there has been no extra time or energy for blogging.

So I wanted to start a weekly check-in type post, so today is my first check-in.

Gestation: 9 Weeks 3 Days

Weight Gain: Not sure, will know tomorrow at appointment.

Overall Feeling: Pretty good, tired off and on, morning sickness is still only slight.

Cravings: Waffles, Tomatoes, Bacon, Pumpkin Pie (Hubsy searched all over for pumpkin, and I now have 2 pies in the oven!)
