It hasn't been too long since I've posted, but here's the pg update.

I am doing really well, I think. I have to eat very frequently (I'm going to be the size of a house before this is over) or I get very nauseous. Actually, every evening I feel kinda icky and have an internal debate over whether I would feel better if I would let myself throw up. So far the answer is no! My BB's are sore and are definitely getting bigger. I'm way tired in the afternoons. And I am eating things (like eggs and grapefruit juice for breakfast) that normally never eat!

My first OB appt is 6/17--until then, I think I'll remain pretty anxious. I have kept the POAS to a minimum, but I get a little worried that maybe I'm not pg anymore because there aren't that many outward signs, kwim? I just really need to hear the heartbeat to put my mind to rest a bit. I'm just afraid it's all too good to be true!!!!

Don't worry Courtney your appointment will be here before you know it!!!







I'm doing pretty well. The boys are growing a ton! My belly is rock hard and I feel them moving more and more as the days go by. I love it. I still have some M/S but it isn't unbearable. Heartburn and major back pain are my biggest complaints! My shower is this weekend so I'm pretty excited about that too!

I'm with you, Jess! I have back problems to begin with so my growing uterus/belly (extra weight), makes it impossible to find a comfortable position no matter what I'm doing. Sleeping has also turned into a chore. The worst part is, I have three more months and it's only going to get worse. Oh well, it'll all be worth it in the end.

Another thing I've noticed is how tired I've been. It's like I'm back in the first trimester.

I've been feeling pretty good, actually. Tired often but DH and I have been trying to get out for walks every evening. Sometimes it helps take away the tiredness and sometimes it makes it worse. The hardest thing is eating breakfast and brushing my teeth in the morning. It's hard to stomach both activities but other than that, I'm fine during the day.

I love reading the updates! Keep them coming!

Jess- do you keep belly pics anywhere? I don't think I've seen them. I want to see how twins are treating you!

I updated about 2 weeks ago (May 19 dr appt). That is kind of where I am at this point. Just waiting for my next appt., which is June 26 and we are hoping to find out what we will be having. DH and I have been working on names and have pretty much come to an agreement on both (I think) just as long as DH doesn't change at the last minute. I am feeling pretty good most of the time but for some reason, I have still been really tired some days.

Names
Girl - Victoria Diane
Boy - Joshua Taylor

Diane is my middle name and Taylor is my maiden name, the first names are names that DH and I both like.

Firstly I am not going to be a Mommy I will be a Mummy

Secondly this heartburn SUCKS like MAJORLY sucks!! I can't bend over without getting pretty bad heartburn! putting my shoes on just about kills me!!! I think my stomach is up under my ribs because seriously I have such pain there its so frustrating!! Don't get me wrong I love being pregnant and I have had a very easy pregnancy so far so if this is the worst of it I am happy.

I am living on Tums.... Tums are now my best friend! I think I eat 6 or 8 a day! I need to make sure I don't slouch or I get heartburn too!!

Come on September (although I am secretly hoping she comes in August)

My update.....there's not much, but I haven't been on in ages....well it seems like ages. We're on vacation visiting our families in TX and FL. The drive from CA to TX was so long and then from TX to FL. We're currently in FL with my fam and will be going to the beach this wekeend! We finally told both families the big news! They all seemed excited/happy, so that's good! We will probably be moving back to CA but to Santa Monica instead, DH got a job offer at a studio there, so that's exciting. We are probably going to trade in our Mazda 3 for an SUV too~! Pregnancy updates....I'm feeling great! So excited and happy!! No morning sickness at all. Just feeling tired earlier than before and my appetite has picked up. I am 9 weeks today~ Time is flying by. I have an u/s on Tuesday and I can't wait! I'll def. post pics of our lil one!!

Thanks for the updates everyone! I love reading them~!!

Well i'm still pretty new in all of this...I think i'll be 5 weeks on Thursday
Still very nervous and trying to think positive. POAS on Sunday (in true POASaholic fashion) just to make sure...and there they were...my 2 dark pink lines!

I've got my first ob/gyn appointment on the 25th...really excited! No real morning sickness but the appetite has increased, bbs are growing and I have to get to bed early coz i get sooo exhausted! But i'm loving it all!
