Belly Pics...

I'm not overly thrilled with doing belly pics, but I want to document everything.  So even my expanding belly.  :-)

11 weeks

Dear Babies-

We are getting so close to that first trimester mark-  when I am not supposed to worry so much about losing you.  However, as awesome as the Internet is- it brings a lot of anxiety when pregnant.  For every positive answer or post I find for my most mundane questions there is a negative post about miscarriage and illness and loss. 

Your Dad and I decided again any prenatal screenings.  We waited too long and tried too long to have you.  No matter what you are perfect and we are blessed to have you in our lives. 

This week I am starting to feel less anxious and more excited. I ordered mattresses for your cribs (not that we have your cribs yet) and a friend of mine is giving me a TON of baby stuff too.  I told my big boss at work and now we are free to tell anyone we want.  I think that makes me more excited too.  You both seem more real and part of our lives when we get to share you with others.

I think it also helps that I am finally getting a little more energy back- although as I type this I clearly need a nap.  I hope you both inherit my ability to sleep- and sleep a lot! 

With Much Love,

Last week we went to the OB here in Tallahassee for our first appointment in Tallahassee.  I do miss Gainesville-  they were much nicer there. 

We got to have another ultrasound-  and the whole time both of you were just kicking and wiggling away.  It was really awesome and finally hearing your heartbeats made me cry.  You both are starting to look more like little human beings now.  Including you Baby A-  you clearly got your Daddy's head.  Baby B is my little soccer player- the whole time on the ultrasound you were kicking rapidly with your long narrow feet (must take after me).  Your heartbeats were 179 and 182- very healthy!

Our Doctor in TLH is very laid back - quite the opposite of Dr. Williams in Gainesville.  It is going to take a bit to get used to him I think. 

Two days after our first doctor appointment I woke up and was spotting.  Your Dad had already left and it was all I could do to not cry the whole time while I waited on a call back from the doctor's office.  Long story short I went on bed rest for the rest of the week and I am taking it easy.  The spotting stopped fairly quickly-  but we aren't wanting to take any chances.  Going to lay low the rest of this trimester and take it easy. 

Love you lots-  hang tight babies,
