So much fairly uneventful information to catch you all up on! We had our level 2/anatomy ultrasound last week and everything looked great. We still have a little boy and a little girl growing along, albeit much more visibly this time. Weighing in at about 13 oz each at that time (they should each be… Continue reading Maternity Clothes and their Colors
We made it another week and get to see our babies on Thursday! We are on our way back into Columbia after celebrating the baptism of our cousin's fourth child of whom I'm the Godmother. We are four weeks from our first milestone - 24 weeks. This is when our babies are viable. Viable does… Continue reading 19+6 and Arachnids 🕷
18 weeks tomorrow and I've got two little bell peppers growing away in my belly. We're getting closer on some names for our babies and overall doing well. How far along? 17w + 6 Total weight gain/loss? Not sure. I'm guessing up about 10lbs at this point! We will find out at the next appointment.… Continue reading Bell Peppers in my belly
RIP Kurt Cobain Wednesday was a very busy day. I toured a daycare (that I liked better than the previous, but there are not two open spots) and then diligently worked until it was time to see our sweet babies! We got to the ultrasound and didn't have to wait too long before we were… Continue reading In Utero… 16 weeks
On the agenda recently: daycares vs. nannies and house painting. I've toured one daycare, am touring another next week, and another the second week of October. Two of these have two openings for late April, one does not. The comments are funny - they did ask me if I'd be interested in one spot. I… Continue reading Can you make your accent walls French?
Tomorrow we leave for Myrtle Beach in a vacation planned by my lovely MIL. As luck would have it, the hurricane might be there, as well. Hoping the course changes its trajectory, but I guess we will see. Most people have assured me I won't get stuck and will be on track to be home… Continue reading Babies’ First Hurricane
I'm gonna see how many references I can make to members of NWA throughout this blog's tenure. After relaxing and reclining for the morning, I met Justin at the doctor at 1:30 PM. We were taken back to the ultrasound room quickly, something for which I was very thankful. It was my first belly ultrasound… Continue reading Today Was a Good Day
12 weeks and 2 days and our babies are the size of plums. We have an appointment on Thursday to see them and I couldn't be happier! It will be our last appointment until 16 weeks, then 20 weeks before more frequent monitoring may begin again. I think Justin and I are finally starting to… Continue reading Plumble Bees 🐝
I saw my OB this week after graduation from our RE. She's only been my OB for about three years because I had to unexpectedly switch due to an incident that happened with my previous. She's a very good doctor who many people I know use and is very kind. The last time she saw… Continue reading OB Appointment and the diagram of a cervix
Strawberries. Kumquats. Prunes. Apparently, the babies are the size of all three this week. They've graduated from embryos to fetuses just as I've graduated from my RE to my OB. As I gave a pantless hug to everyone yesterday, I was overcome with emotion. It's hard to believe. 6 rounds of clomid. 3 rounds of… Continue reading Fruit I never knew was the same size.
