Almost 15 Weeks

Hello blog world. Sorry I went MIA. Hopefully I'm back to stay. Wow I can't believe I'm sitting here typing about being 15 wks pregnant. I'm still in shock over all of this because there is that part of every infertile girl who believes they will never be a mother. Besides the morning sickness I sometimes don't feel like this is real. I feel like we are tricking people in to thinking we are pregnant. I wonder if it will become more real when they start kicking or will it be when I actually get to meet them? Here are some updates on what has been happening.

Morning Sickness- This has really prevented me from enjoying pregnancy so far. It makes me so sad because I have waited so long for this. The good news is it has gotten a hundred times better. I had a week where I didn't throw up at all, but was just nauseaus all day. The last 3 days the throwing up is back, but I'm not yucky feeling all day. I actually had my first productive day yesterday in about 10 weeks.

Weight Gain- So far I'm holding steady at 6 lbs. And sadly enough those lbs just happend in the 2nd Tri. Oops. I could technically count 2 in the 1st Tri because I would lose it then gain it. Hey whatever makes me happy lol. Actually for the first time probably in my life I love my fat belly and have no self consciousness.

Babies Room- This was my productive day yesterday. We cleaned out a big part of that room because it's kind of been a catch all room. We still have some left but really it just goes in the attick. We bought our cribs last weekend, but we don't plan on putting them up for a while. We decided with two babies things are going to get expensive so we wanted to start buying now.

Gender- We scheduled a Gender scan with a local ultrasound place for Feb 3rd. I'm so impatient I could not wait another 6 wks. I still think it is 2 girls. We did the Intelligender for fun and it said boy. Chinese gendar calendar says boy. All other wives tales point to girl so far. I am so excited to know what we are having.

It's crazy to think in just about 5 wks I should be feeling these babies move. It makes me emotional just thinking about how blessed we are right now. In 5 short months we should be holding our miracles that we have waited so long for. God is so good. I will leave you with the much anticipated belly shots.

Here is week 4

And here is week 14

Oh yay, so exciting! Love the growing belly! Let me tell you, I am past 34 weeks, feeling her move constantly and STILL get uncomfortable when people talk to me about it because, like you said, it feels like I am tricking them into thinking this is really gonna happen. I don't think I'll believe it all until she is in my arms.

And about being sad that the pregnancy is hard, and not easily enjoyed after what so long - my take on that is that you are just being prepared for motherhood. Those of us who have waited SO long have a fantasy of what having our babies in our arms is like...and it IS AMAZING! But, let me tell you, there are days when it is excruciatingly hard, and when you actually wonder what you were thinking (I know, crazy, right?!). But, it is the reality of being a mommy. So, just get used to that feeling:). When I realized that those hard days are JUST as much a part of being a mommy *finally*, I felt much better:). Take care, hun, can't wait to hear who is growing in there - boys or girls...or both....hmmmm:).

You look so incredibly adorable!!! I can't wait to watch that precious little belly grow. I am so glad you feel good about your pregnant body- I felt the best during those 9 months. Now, I need a little toning. :) Can't wait to find out what these 2 little babies are!!!

You look great girl. I'm about 4 weeks behind you. I'm still praying to get over that 12 week hump. I go to the dr. tomorrow and PRAYING we hear that little heartbeat nice and strong. I too feel like I'm having another girl (that would be 3) but I too took the intelligender test and the chinese calendar all say boy. Love hearing things are going well and cant wait to get the next update.

You look great girl! I'm SOOOO happy to see that you are already at the 15 week mark! Cant wait to see if its 2 boys, 2 girls, or 1 of each!!

(I'm going to guess 1 of each btw!)

God bless XOXOXO
