Hey ladies! We are home. We were going to stay a couple more nights but I felt like death warmed over this morning and wanted to come home. I immediately went to bed and have been here since. Braxton hicks have been my constant companion. They're staying JUST below the "time to call the doctor" level. And I mean JUST very literally. In the last hour I've been feeling queasy on top of it. I'm hoping I just need some rest but if it continues beyond the next couple of hours I will be calling the doctor and making a trip to the hospital. It's starting to concern me but I'm hiding it from DH because he freaks out so easily when I'm sick or hurt. I'm also keeping it off FB because of our families so if we are friends on there, please don't mention it on there. Anyway, just wanted to update and maybe ask for a prayer or two.

Finally the BH's subsided about midnight and the queasiness went away. Yay! Feel human today. Don't know what in the world was going on yesterday. Ventured out to get my hair colored and a new cut (with soctor's approval on the color). Getting rid of my highlights and going back to solid color and getting a cut that will be versatile enough for ponytails for baseball, nicer for other occasions and can be pulled however I need it once the twins get here, but gives me a little something different for the present. Hope everyone is having a great day!!

MissB- i forgot to thank you for thinking of us & trying to find a donor! you are really So sweet! sorry i didn't mention it in my earlier post. my brain is so spacey sometimes.

Amy- i am continuously praying. i'm starting to worry about those BH!!! i can understand why you would want to keep in hush hush from DH, sometimes husband worries can transfer to you & add more stress to your plate. i'm happy to hear the BH has subsided. is there anything that can be done to keep them away? bed rest? i know bed rest would be difficult, but maybe for a few hours each day? you look radiant! i'm glad you treated yourself to a color & cut. the hair & the bump look great!!! congrats on reaching the 21 week mark! WOOHOOOO!

Kelkl- first off CONGRATS on your number doubling!!!! i am so happy for you. i was so anxious to get on here to see what your beta was doing. your US isn't too far away, but you must be so excited for it that it feels like a year away. i will check your message after i post. thank you for thinking of me <3

afm- i met our potential back up donor today & i was SO nervous to meet him. i was scared he was going to ask us how much $ we made & things like an adoption agent would ask. he was very sweet & kind. please don't think i'm judgmental, i pray i don't offend anyone. i sincerely apologize if i do. when i first met him i was surprised when he spoke. he had a feminine voice. about 2 hours into the convo, i thought we were going to say our goodbyes, he told me that he's gay & his sister is very masculine. i have gay friends, have nothing against gay people, but they've had hardships because of it & i don't think i want that for my kids. i don't know if it can be passed on or hereditary. but another example is the Rachel zoe project. her make up artist is gay & so is his brother. i called hubby after the meeting & he was kinda quite. he said he would prefer the donor not to be gay.

like i said before, i pray i don't hurt anyone's feelings. i'd love some feedback from you girls. i value your opinions greatly. xoxo

Amy you look amazing! I've been meaning to ask my doctor if I can color my hair. I guess I have the answer! My doctor kind of laughs at me with my silly questions. oh well! I agree with April, get some rest each day!

Kelkl- Wahoo for doubling!!!! I didnt feel real to me to the first ultrasound, actually sometimes it still doesn't feel real. But you are prego! Celebrate with some water!


April, you've had such a struggle to find a donor. I think about you often. Sometimes I wonder what I would do if I was in your position. Very interesting situation with your interview with the donor. I personally don't believe there is such a thing as a gay gene that can passed on. Personally it would not bother me if I liked all other aspects of the donor. I think it would worry my DH though. I wouldn't judge you if you decided to pass. But keep in mind it's going to be hard for you to find the perfect person. You may find the perfect donor and then your child doesn't get the features you were expecting. Just don't want you to be disappointed if you aren't able to meet your expectations.


AFM, nothing really new. I still haven't felt the baby yet. I have an ultrasound tomorrow to check on the SCH. Sometimes thats the benefit of being high risk, lots of ultrasounds!

Hey MissB! yay for another US!!! i can't wait to see another million $ smile.

there is 1 thing that concerns me. i was watching oprah years ago. there was this story about this US Olympic skier. he was adopted as a baby. they located his biological father & they were able to meet on the show. it was SO crazy how many similarities they had, their laugh, mannerisms & gestures & hairstyle?! they both had long hair lol. so a part of me is concerned about nature vs nurture. the potential back up donor was so animated & feminine. don't get me wrong he had a lot of great qualities too.

thanks for your feedback

xo

MissB...I can't remember how many weeks you are. My doctor said during the 2nd trimester only and to avoid the scalp itself as much as possible. I had my hairdresser match as closely as humanly possible to my natural color (it's seriously like an identical match, thank goodness) because my thinking for this color was to remove my highlights and go back "natural" so that if we do end up on bed rest, I don't have to freak out over my roots needing touched up. I added in layers and bangs but left my length. I wanted something versatile (up, down or half & half depending on my mood and the occasion).

April...no offense taken here. Having said that, I have a nephew who just recently came out. I suspected for YEARS but never asked him because I didn't want him to be upset or anything. His Dad is having a hard time accepting this revelation. My brother (God love him) is very...I'm not even sure of the word. He's an Army vet (nearly killed in Iraq), firm believer in man & woman, firm believer in man being head of the household, etc. Nothing wrong with any of his beliefs. As a matter of fact, I'm a firm believer in man & woman myself. Those are based in my religion. BUT I love my nephew unconditionally and will support him regardless. He is the ONLY person in the family (on any side for as far back as any of us can recall, including his Mom's sides of the family) to come out as gay. So I find it hard to believe in it being hereditary. On the same note, I always hear from other people I know that are gay that it wasn't a choice, they were born that way. I personally don't know. I can't say. Not much help in that department, I know. Just because back up guy is gay doesn't mean that any biological children would be. I can understand the concern though. With all the years of suspecting my nephew was and knowing how my brother is, I often wondered how I would handle it if one of my children told me they were gay. I'd like to believe I'd be supportive and understand and love them regardless (I'm having no trouble doing so where my nephew is concerned so I'm more confident that would be the case) but I wonder how I'd handle it going against my beliefs. If that makes sense? All I can recommend doing is praying hard on it. In the end, only you and your DH can make the final decision. (((hugs))) It's a tough situation added to a tough situation.


AFM, felt great all day yesterday. Today, so far as well. DH is seriously kissing butt and doing all the of the housework and keeps telling me to sit down. Trust me, it's not to be kind. He's trying to get out of the dog house. Monday, when getting ready for the lake, I felt like a beached whale in my bathing suit. I mean, horribly bad!! Then, Tuesday evening, we were ordering our parent shirts for my son's travel baseball team. Now keep in mind that 1) all of these shirts are unisex and generally run to men's sizes 2) I don't plan on attending tournaments beyond the end of August most likely even though they'll play until October and 3) these shirts are for next year as well when the team resumes. I ordered an XL. That's the same size I've been ordering for years because it's a little loose. I was wearing one of DH's XL shirts at the time and it was loose. He looks at me and asks if I'm sure I don't need to order a 2XL!!! I haven't much spoken to him since then. First I was a combo of pissed and hurt. Then, just hurt. I keep telling myself he was thinking of wearing it all fall but at the same time he knew I wouldn't be. But hey, as long as he wants to do everything for a while......

LOL. My husband ALWAYS sticks his foot in his mouth. Last month when I was telling him about a couple that broke up, where the female was much more attractive than the male (and I mean by A LOT!), my husband said, that's why you never go for the most attractive one in the pack. I was so hurt. The funny part is when we first got together I was A LOT more attractive than him. I was skinny, blonde, etc. I was thinking, what, I was way out of your league when we met. But regardless, his comment totally hurt me, especially because coming off birth control was what added the weight...so I can totally relate. Use this to your advantage, I am sure it can last a few more weeks, right???

hi Amy- thank you so much for your feedback, I appreciate it! I hope there has been a lot of healing & love coming to your nephew. I have a really close gay friend, his dad is a pastor. because of their strained relationship, he self destructs sometimes. it's hard to see someone you care about struggle so much. I reached out to another girl I cycled with back in May. one of her co workers has 2 sons she loves them unconditionally & they are both gay. one of her sons has to keep his home life a secret @ work. I can't imagine how stressful that must be.
i'm sorry Hubby hurt your feelings. sometimes I think they forget that we have feelings lol. I think every girl in this group has experienced a moment like that once in their marriage, or for me it's like once a week lol. i'm glad he's been trying to make up by helping around the house. I would LOVE it if my DH would do that .

Kelkl-omg, did DH know that hurt your feelings? if I pointed that out to my DH, he would probably be like "what did I say?"

I can't wait to hear about your beta tomorrow!!! XOXO

Hello *****iness! That's my life right now. The last few days I've become the Queen of *****! EVERY thing is getting on my nerves. I'm snapping at every one. DH can do absolutely NOTHING right! It's horrible!! And I can't seem to control it. I know I'm doing it, even as I'm doing it. Yet I can't stop it. And being out of control is making it worse. I'm not sleeping because of it. BH's have been constant for days (just not at a high enough frequency to have to call the doctor). Josiah has decided to camo out in my left lung and spends 3/4 of the day there so I spend a lot of time trying to just breathe. A friend of ours owns 2 home health care businesses. He found out about the breathing issue and brought me an oxygen tank and showed me how to use it on the lowest setting so that I can get some pure oxygen to me and the boys. Everything I eat seems to make me sick at my stomach. Makes me not want to eat when I'm already having trouble with that issue. All of this is making me feel like I belong in a psych ward somewhere. I keep telling myself it'll pass, it can't last forever. But I HATE this feeling. These boys are totally worth every second of it. I just wish I weren't feeling so crappy right now. Guess I'm just having a pity party today.

Amy, I'm sorry your hormones are out of control. I'm sure your DH understands. I wish these BH would go away for you. I've had day sickness everyday too. I've only actually vomited twice but I came really close a few other times and if I would have been near a bathroom, I would have! Now I carry saltines and a plastic bag with me in my purse. I'm glad you got breathing relief with some oxygen! I Joe you start feeling better soon!

I've spent the entire day at the ball park in the heat and then at the hotel since the tournament is 2 1/2 hours from home. The kids have gotten on my last nerve but I've managed to not snap at any of them. Traffic in this town is horrid!! I like my little home town better. Gotta be back at the ball park at 8:15am. No idea how long we will be there. Depends on how they play. Won't this be interesting??

I hate that you're dealing with morning sickness but it'll be worth it in the end. I can't wait until your u/s!!
