Grr. DH and I are in a fight right now. I have to admit, my pregnancy hormones are making me easier to anger than normal. So here's what happened - I was laying on the floor, and my little dog was sitting by me. So he starts playing with her, and she starts jumping around. Then suddenly, he pushes her, and she jumps onto my face! Her claws dug into my nose and it really, really hurt. So I sat up, and reflexively popped my DH on the arm. I couldn't help it, I was pissed! I didn't do it hard though. Anyway, so then he makes a big deal of it saying I HIT HIM. OMG, like I'm some sort of husband abuser?? So now we're not talking. I swear, sometimes he's a bit of a drama queen.
I have this urge to buy a bunch of pregnancy tests, just to see them turn positive!! I've been looking at negative tests for the past almost two years, so I'm a little addicted to that extra line. Hehe.
Yeah, I thought twins would be SO cool, as one of the earlier kids, until I read other people's journals about how hard it really is! Nadine comes to mind!
They still are a double blessing though and look so cute together!
Do I think Gabby will be a talker? I hope not too much! I just think Gabriella is too long and too official so we will just call her Gabby or Gabi, hoping she will not be too gabby....
Sorry about hormone induced spats with your DH. I am just as irritable these days and my DH already knows not to cross me... He just says:" I will just wait it out..." Oh well, hope you two can work it out! I know you wil.
It's so weird, yesterday, I was STARVING but nothing looked good. So DH and I drove around town looking for something that would sound good to me. Finally, I ended up getting two large mashed potatoes with gravy from KFC! Fast food has been looking really good to me, but only the side dishes. How weird is that?! I have no idea what I'm going to do for lunch today either. I am so hungry, and all I've eaten is a few olives and half a snack bar. Ugh, I think that's the worst - when you're hungry and nothing looks good!
We were talking to DH's parents last night, and they are sooo excited about this pregnancy, it's so cute! DH's dad wanted me to send them belly shots, LOL. We also told them we're planning a trip there in June, and they were over the moon! We'll have our BIG ultrasound the end of May or early June, so we'll be leaving after that to tell them the news in person. Can't wait! It's going to be so much fun!
I am starting to get really nervous about our ultrasound tomorrow! I got a reminder call from the hospital about my appointment, and I wanted to puke. I just keep picturing the worst case scenarios in my head and wondering how I'll react if they see no heartbeat, or the baby's not growing well! OMG, I am starting to freak myself out again. Please pray (if you do pray) for us, and for a healthy baby!
I'll come and tell you how wonderful twins are in another month or so k? lol
(sorry, I missed that part and just HAD to comment.)
They do look cute together, I have lots of shots of them together in my dropshots. That's the best part
I'm baaaaack!!!! It went GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The baby is measuring exactly one week behind, so either I ovulated late, or I told them the wrong date of my menstrual period. Who can remember?? It's not like I thought I had any reason to keep track! The baby's heart was beating away, we got to hear it AND see it!! The doctor recorded it at right around 160 BPM!! She said the baby looks healthy, and there is no cause for concern at this time!!!! My due date has been moved to October 24th. I am SO HAPPY and relieved!!!!!!!!!!!!! And can I just say the baby is BEAUTIFUL???? Of course, I might be biased! We also asked for a nuchal translucency scan, but our hospital doesn't do it, so the doctor said she'd refer us out to a bigger hospital in the nearest city to here. They'll do that around 11 weeks. We are not at risk for Down's, but I still wanted to get it done. Plus, it just means another, more high-tech ultrasound! I am SO excited!!!! Thank you for ALL the PM's and good thoughts you sent us - they worked!!!!!
