6 Weeks

Today I am celebrating 6 weeks! Everyday that I am pregnant is one day longer I feel so blessed to to have "the hoppers" with me. I am still almost symptom free. My main issue is insomnia, but I am dealing with it just fine. I get the occasional nausea feeling, I am always hungry and still some cramping here and there. I told both bosses yesterday. Al and I made the decision that we wouldn't hide this pregnancy for the fear of losing the babies. Since we are done with treatments, this is very well our last pregnancy and we want to celebrate every minute of it. No worries though, we aren't doing any facebook announcements for A LONG time. I explained to my boss yesterday that it is still very possible we won't come home with any babies and that it is still very early. He said he was going to stay optimistic and know we would come home with two. He said he was very excited to have the need now to come up with a maternity leave policy since we don't have anything in place. We talked about hiring someone to take my place for a few months. Unfortunately one of the co-workers I have can't remember her name half of the time and I told him we couldn't expect her to pick up slack  around here because of her thousands of disabilities (mentally). He agreed. We still have plenty of time and many things can change from day to day.

I put my u/s picture on my computer so I can look at this beautiful sight daily until next Monday.
On another note, I want you to know that I do understand if you are still in the trenches or in a bad place right now. I hope you understand that I do have to celebrate this for me. As long as I am allowed to be pregnant I will be posting on my blog about it. So I totally understand if you need to step back and not follow me for the time at hand. It is not my intention to hurt anyone, but I also need to do this for me.

  2. You celebrate, girl!! God gave you double for your trouble and that's reason to celebrate! I love seeing you so optimistic. I didn't have symptoms with my twins until about 8 weeks and then I felt soooo sick all the time until the very day of 13 weeks and then it was like it magically stopped. I so enjoyed my twin pregnancy, it's truly a miracle and quite a sight for people. Lol! I hope you get to enjoy it for the next 32 weeks! :-)

  4. T, you need to celebrate this. After everything that has happened and what lies ahead, embracing the pregnancy is essential. So no guilt. Yes, I know I wasn't good at following this advice and it often resulted in me suppressing a lot of the fear and joy I was feeling. Which, though a choice I knew I needed to make, is one that I wish I could have let go of.

    No guilt lady. Twin pregnancy is hard enough and embracing it is important.

    1. I was laying in bed the other night thinking of names for them and it was either the hoppers or my sister came up with the raisinettes :)

  9. I was on prednisone and apparently it prevents nausea. I didn't vomit even once! Occasionally, I was disgusted by some food only.
