8 Weeks!

Today, I am 8 weeks pregnant with our little kidney beans. Tomorrow at 10:00 AM, we get to go in for an ultrasound to check on them.  If they both have heartbeats are are growing appropriately, the miscarriage risk is significantly diminished.  I am crossing every thing I have and praying that we see and hopefully hear those sweet sounds.

How do I feel?

Physically, I feel tired and as though I have insomnia at the same time. I can’t sleep between 1:00 AM and 4:00 AM, but am very tired the rest of the time. Today marked my first car nap in the middle of the day at work.  I thought about going home, but then reasoned that I’d just be wasting possible nap time by driving, so I took a nice little power nap.

I feel bigger in my tummy.  I don’t have an explanation for it as I really shouldn’t be showing and I haven’t put on a ton of weight or anything (still down), but it’s definitely different.

Acne.  I haven’t had this many breakouts since I was in middle school. They’re everywhere. And not like I said they were everywhere during my second egg retrieval cycle. Much different.

Mentally I feel good, I’m still playing a slight mind game with myself I think… looking forward to seeing everything tomorrow and proving that my body is doing its job and keeping these babies safe and growing.

Someone asked me if I was pregnant. I didn’t really know what to make of it.  I didn’t lie (no reason to), but I was curious to know why she asked. Her reasoning was that she’s 63 and she just knows these things…. I’m not sold on that, but I’ve got nothing else.  She was kind and said I had a “glow.” Perhaps it’s the overabundance of oil on my face. 🙂

I might publish all these tomorrow. I don’t know. I wish I knew who all read this, but I did knowingly make this public for human consumption.
