Thriving Baby #2 and #3
It is hard to believe that I am nearly halfway through my pregnancy. It feels like it was just yesterday my two little blastocysts were making their way into my uterus. My first trimester went quickly and always left me hungry. If I didn't eat every hour on the hour (or even before that) my littles would throw quite the fit. With the help of having healthy snacks always on hand and the occasional ginger ale (should my nausea just be too much) I was happy to move into my second trimester and start experience this "golden" time I had read all about.
|So excited to enter my "golden trimester"...or so I thought.|
Despite my mother and grandmother not having too many pregnancy woes, it seems that for me carrying two just threw my lovely genetics over the edge. Am I going to sit and complain or feel sorry for myself? Heck to the NO! I really don't care how uncomfortable or awful I feel, as soon as I reach down and touch that belly, connecting with my littles nothing else matters. Mind over matter ladies, mind over matter!
Now that I am officially in my 18th week, I am proud to announce that my TH and I are expecting two beautiful boys!!!
Now, the "stats":
- Estimated due date: August 21st, 2014 (fingers crossed I make it that far...)
- Symptoms thus far: 1st trimester, all day queasiness (made better by constantly eating and sipping ginger ale when necessary), feeling tired and into my second trimester came the crazy relaxin/back issue...not.fun.at.all.
- Unlike the cake pop loving, secret keeping Nic, we are proud to say we are having TWO BOYS!
- Was I happy with what I got? To be totally honest...I would have loves to have one boy & one girl, but I love my boys and can always have a girl next time!
Let the wall papering begin and the fire truck buying continue!! Now that I know what we are having our nursery can get finished up and I can call my littles by their names; Clarke (My MIL's maiden name) and JR (Joseph Richard, our grandfathers' name).
