Dr's Appointment of Blah and Sharing the News

I took a long lunch to go to my "OB Concerns" appointment, cause this is a miracle baby damnit, and I'm gonna make sure it's legit. I sat around for AN HOUR AND A HALF before they decide to tell me that the Dr is trapped at the hospital and would I mind rescheduling...
All in all, I wasted 2 hours of my day. They did however do a blood draw to check my Progesterone and HCG levels. I go back for the 2nd Beta Thursday, and then am seeing the Dr on Friday. Hopefully for my first ultrasound to hear the heartbeat (fingers crossed) and hopefully figure out how many are in there. I have a hunch it's twins we'll see if I'm right. lol.

Today is my father's 65th Birthday. I told them over the phone and they were super excited. This is going to be their first grandkid and they are over the moon. Definitely need to hope it's a real baby in there now. lol.

We're planning on telling Hubbs' family over 4th of July with a cheeky photo announcement e-mail thing. They have plenty of grandkids on that side, so they'll be like, eh whatever. At least by then we'll know how many there are so we can accurately report. I am large and tall, and apparently that ups my chances of twins. I'm also thinking that since my ovaries hoarded my eggs for so long, they released a few too many the one time they actually decided to release something.

I haven't started feeling nauseated yet, although today is apparently week 5 day 6. whatever, that's fricking 6 weeks. According to most, that's when the pukey-ness sets in. I've definitely been burping a lot more, but not really feeling gross.

I bought a little stash of healthy snacks for work. Hummus, veggies, nuts, whole grain goldfish crackers, and fig newtons for if I ever get a sweet craving, which honestly, I might be over sweets. I'm trying to drink my recommended amount of water, I suppose it helps that I'm obnoxiously thirsty all the time. I think I actually did 2 liters today, so go me.

I've also been obsessively pinning things on pinterest. What? It's never too soon to start planning your registry, right? I have decided though, and I don't know how possible this is with modern technology... but I want to be surprised as to whether it's a boy or girl or both. No one is allowed to tell me! I've told Hubbs he's allowed to find out, but he's not allowed to tell anyone and definitely not me. Let's see how far I get with this plan.

Anyone have any tips or tricks or words of warning or anything? This whole I'm-going-to-be-someone's-mother-in-8-months thing is starting to sink in. lol.

  1. I have been off the blogs for awhile and logged on to see this. I am sooooo excited for you!

    I never had morning sickness, so don't panic if you don't have any. No women in my family ever had it.

    The only advice I can offer you on parenthood is TRUST YOURSELF. Everyone and their mother, strangers on the street, idiots online, etc. will tell you to do this or not do that. Most of it is conflicting advice. Kind of like you have already recieved getting up to this point. Smile, say thank you, and do what you and your husband think is right for YOUR child.

    Oh, and enjoy the ride!
