That about sums up my life since school started. I truly have like no time!
Come home, eat, shower, and go to bed! Otherwise I am one crabby and sick momma!
The babies are doing well and we have a big ultrasound on Monday where would should find out the genders if they cooperate!
I kept a journal all through our journey and have recently transferred it to an online blog. You may check it out and stay updated at:

I know .... it's been awhile since I have been on here. I am still dealing with extreme fatigue, 24/7 morning sickness, and every other bad pregnancy symptom you can have! I spend most of my time sleeping, resting, relaxing, and forcing myself to eat at least something. I have been weighing myself weekly for the past 3 weeks and have lost 9.8 pounds. That is just crazy!
We had our 8 1/2 week ultrasound today and everything went and looked great. As soon as I saw the first baby on the screen, I could totally tell they were bigger! It was crazy to actually see some features this time. You could make out a head, body, arms, and legs! Baby A is measuring 2 days ahead with a heartbeat of 182. Baby B was a little more shy and didn't show us all of its wonderful features but is measuring 1 day ahead with a heartbeat of 180. The doctor was very pleased and as are we! He told us that we have a 95% success rate now which is amazing.
We have officially "graduated" from our infertility clinic now which is bittersweet. I absolutely loved them and quite frankly.... it's where we started our journey and all we have known! So the transition to something unknown is a little scary for me. I am calling an OBGYN tomorrow to establish with and continue our care. The upside to leaving the infertility clinic..... we won't have drive 3 hours one way!!!!
With that being said, I was sent into panic mode this evening......
I came home and took a nap with my husband and slept on and off. When I got up I went to the bathroom which was accompanied by blood.... and more of it then I would have ever liked to see. I immediately panicked but tried to remain relaxed. I called the infertility clinic after hours line and was able to speak with a nurse. She informed me that sometimes after ultrasounds this can happen. She said your cervix is very sensitive and the doctor may have hit an area. She said the good news is that it was only one episode and the bleeding has seemed to stop. I am also not cramping at all which is good. She put me on pelvic rest for the night and told me to keep them updated if it happens again. I just wasn't expecting this at all after such a great ultrasound.
And of course it made me cry.... as scary and intimidating as twins were at first.... I already love them more than anything and don't want anything to happen to either of them!
