Belly Picture

Here's a picture. I realize that most of this belly is ovaries and the monster bowl of spaghetti I had, but here's the belly at 9 weeks.

Some are are stupid and some are just ignorant

We have some ladies that work at our school that I just love to death. But they say the stupidest things. For example:
1. If you eat too many tomatoes you will end up with appendicitis
2. Our grape sized fetus can hear what I say
3. Going out with wet hair will give you pneumonia

Now I now sooner or later the baby will be able to hear me. But at 9 weeks, this is not happening. For goodness sake the brain hasn't even fully developed yet! It doesn't even have ears!

On a funny note, more kids are finding out. One kid in particular I told yesterday and he was so excited. Then he decided that he wanted to be my midwife. He's currently in EMT training and wants to be a doctor. I told him that this was not an option, but he is persistent. NOT GONNA HAPPEN. So today he was talking about how excited his is, that he wanted to give me a hug. They are so funny.

So I don't think you should run out and join the skinny jeans fab. I have seen some girls that I want to tell them, "Do you realize that those jeans make your ass look about the size of Texas?" Stacey would be appalled and Clinton would cry.

Like a broken record

I've said it before, and I apparently will say it numerous times. I AM FREAKING TIRED!!!! Holy cow. I just don't even know what to say other than that. Around 1:30 pm I am a walking zombie. Geez, I think I need to take a nap instead of eating lunch except that around lunch time I am starving. Oh wait, I am starving all the time!

I am excited to see the twinkie again next week. I think it will look more human and less alien! Or at least I hope so. One of the teachers at school lent me a doppler and I can't wait until we can hear the heart beat with it. I want to try now but I know it's not going to work. I think I will try anyway.

It's hard to think of a title when you are writing about how one of your babies died. But to be honest, I am sad but not heart broken. The way my RE made it sound, with the fibroid, it would have been a hard pregnancy and we would not have made it to our due date. So now we just have one twinkie and I think that is for the best. This means we should be able to make it the full 40 weeks, I can try for the birth I want, and the bonus is, because we started out as twins, we should get more scans than normal so we will get to see our Twinkie grow. I know that sounds harsh, but it's reality. I was really not looking forward to having a Csection. So here's the latest pictures. I cropped the second one so that you get a clear view of Twinkie but the first one shows the empty sac of twin a. Twinkie kinda looks like a alien!

Too much food

I made dinner tonight and we ate way too much. I made roasted chicken, roasted veggies, rice pilaf and a salad. I was doing great, then about halfway through my meal I took a bite and thought I was going to hurl. So that ended dinner. It was tasty though.

I went ahead and took Thursday off. Even though I think I have accepted whatever is going to happen, I don't think I necessarily have to go torture myself at work. Plus with the construction, I probably wouldn't make it back in time. It puts a kink in my plans for the week but I can work around that.

Well, I went to the doctor today to get all the insurance paperwork in order. I found out that the midwife I wanted doesn't manage twins so I might have to find someone else. They decided to do an ultrasound to identify fetal heart rates. Twin B had a great heart rate and looked great. Twin A however had a really low heart rate. The ultrasound lady was very concerned. I don't think personally that twin A has a good chance. I am scheduled to go back next Thursday. I really hope that twin B can hang on.

You've got to be kidding me!

I needed an oil change and a tire rotation and I decided that today was the day. So I go to Jiffy Lube, but they don't carry my filter. I should preface this with I have always gone to the dealer even though it is not convenient mainly so they could deal with the warranty crap. So I head on down to the dealer.

Tony is my service manager and I have always gotten along with him. He gets the car taken back but he has to leave for a parent teacher conference. No biggie. So after a little over an hour they tell me the car is done. I go to pay and they want $110. What???? The lady can't tell me why so they call in the other service guy. I don't think this guy has been there long because he can't tell why either. He goes off to fix it. 30 minutes later he comes back and the bill is now $95. Still unacceptable. He doesn't know what is going on. They have charged me $52 for the oil change. Usually oil changes are $34. Finally, after 15 more minutes he gets it worked out to a more reasonable $62. That they charge $24 to rotate tires is criminal, but what are you going to do. I blame this all on Tony. He is not allowed to leave anymore when I am there.


It's hard to tell what you are looking at but here's the ultrasound of the twins. Twinkie A is on the right, twinkie B is on the left. Click to see it bigger.

I was going to wait....

Until I scanned the pics and posted them, but I am being very lazy and I didn't scan crap tonight. So it's official, we are expecting twins! Freak out. The dr. said we shouldn't tell anyone in case we had one twin "vanish" but we couldn't keep it in. I have a good feeling that everything is going to go well, mainly because things have worked out so far.

One of the main things that is driving me crazy is the need to pee every 30 minutes. It's very irritating. But I will continue to drink up in hopes it will help with digestion.

I am very excited but nervous. I think we will have another ultrasound in two weeks. I can't wait!

The anxiety is starting to get to me

I am trying so hard to be calm but it's so impossible these days. I just can't wait for the ultrasound Saturday. I am pretty much convinced it's twins but i hope I am not disappointed if it isn't. I am also a little freaked that it might be nothing, but I am trying really hard to keep that thought out of my head. Tomorrow I am 6 weeks so that is one day further than last time. That has to be a good omen!

The PIO shots are getting better. We have developed skills for them I guess. I still have little lumps but ntohing like what I had the first weeks when I couldn't even sit down! I do have a nasty bruise right in the middle of one but cheek but whatcha gonna do?

I am pooped so off to bed with me!

Gummi letters are delicious

I know they aren't good for me but gosh they are delicious. Of course I eat too many and then I want to hurl. So I have to make sure that I only eat like four at a time.

Gatorade tastes good too but then I want to hurl and frequently upchuck a little. Nothing major.

I am having anxiety about the ultrasound. I know it's the same thing everyone thinks but still, I need some reassurance.

I am thinking about going to see my mom for vacation. DH thinks this is a bad idea because he doesn't want me to drive all that way. Then I told my mom she would have to give me the shots in the ass and now she's freaking. That may mean she is coming down here.
