9 weeks and some Q and A.

Well it has been weeks since I have posted. To be honest I have not been doing much besides getting through the days and then going home to my couch.
I am sooooo tired. My nausea stopped last week, but I still notice if I get too full I feel very burpy and this feels like it could lead to vomiting. So I am taking Pepcid-AC and TUMS. They help for the most part.
Now the bathroom issues are annoying and I get an upset stomach all the time.
Good news, we went to our confirmation doctor’s appointment yesterday. We are pregnant….duh! The doctor we chose seems very nice and I like her. My husband is fine with her too. The nurses are nice. We did have to wait two hours just to get an ultra-sound.
When we spoke to our doctor she is concerned for me because I had a lower back spinal fusion four years ago and it will prevent me from getting an epidural or spinal block. So I might have to go under general anesthesia. I am a little worried but we have to do what we have to do.
I am able to be around food again, and I am going to try cooking for the first time in three weeks tonight. Wish me luck, so here I am going to try to answer these fun questions below. Oh and babies are doing well. They are both still there and their little heart beats are just a beating away. They are 2 cms. So tiny. So that is great. We are 9 weeks! Ok TTYL!

Maternity Clothes? Nope, I have lost 10-15 pounds since we found out I was preggos. My clothes are falling off.

Weight Gain? Nope not yet, weight lose.

Stretch Marks? Yes. But I have always had them.

Sleep? Well its getting annoying. For the first month I was falling asleep and sleeping great. But now that I have to pee 5 times a night by 2am I have a hard time falling back asleep. So I am sure its only getting worse. 

Best Moment of the Week? Seeing our babies again, and seeing their sweet little hearts beating.

Movement? Not yet.

Food Cravings? Nothing per say, I am just starting to eat real food again.

Gender? Not sure yet.

What I Miss? Drinking coke. I occasionally have a sweet tea, but I feel bad about the caffeine. I also miss sandwiches a lot!

Symptoms: Tired!!!! Nausea some, and potty issues.
What I'm looking forward to? No more nausea at all. Not feeling sleepy. And finding out what we are having.

Weekly Wisdom: Rest!!!

Milestones: Going in for our first official “I’m pregnant” appointment, and not seeing the fertility doctor.

Emotions: Everyday is different. Today I am tired and grumpy. I get some anxiety about having two babies. I am still waiting to see if I am going to be laid off for next year. I work in a school and layoffs are rampant. But other than that I just take it day by day and I pray.

Two heartbeats!

Hello guys!
The hubby and I went in for our second ultra-sound. All is well. There are two heartbeats and the two babies are growing at the right speed. Their hearbeats are loud and fast. So cool! I guess now we have to start planning and doing the nursery! Crazy. We have graduated from the Infertility Doctor and now we are going to our own doctor.

Sick, sick, and more sick

So I stayed home today from work. I have not been feeling well all weekend. I threw up last night and felt a bit better. But I constanly feel like I need to go the bathroom. And not to pee. So that is sucking badly. I keep burping then I feel like throwing up. So yeah I just stayed home and I am have been in my pjs all day.
I did do homework but all I can stomach is saltines and sprite. I tried chicken broth but that didnt go so well.
So anyway I wanted to get yalls thoughts to make sure I am not crazy. So since we found out we might be having twins I am feeling a little anxious and nervous. I am feeling scared to have twins. There are so many changes that are coming our way and I cant do anything about them so it makes me feel scared. Am I crazy? I know having these hormones in my body doesnt help either. But I just feel so anxious that there might be twins. I am happy please dont get me wrong, it took a while to get here. But I am just overwhelmed I guess. Please tell me other people feel or felt this.
