Ups & Downs....

9w5d..........

Biggest symptom: EXHAUSTION. I can't see to get myself off the couch to do anything. I start something, like the laundry, and I eventually find myself sprawled out in the floor in a complete daze. I am totally worthless right now! I still have a long list of stuff that I was supposed to get done before school tarts again in the fall. Only a month left, so hopefully this exhaustion ends before I have to try to go back to work! I guess I got my wish... Nothing to do this summer but incubate! What a perfect way to spend my months off!

I received the fetal doppler heart monitor in the mail today!! It took me a several minutes,but I was definitely able to find at least one of the babies' heartbeats! I think I found them both, but they are so close and small right now that I'm not positive! What a beautiful sound...

My hubby and I had a date afternoon on Sunday. We saw the movie "What To Expect When You Are Expecting"... It was hilarious and so truthful! We had a good laugh and it was refreshing to know that we weren't the only people experiencing all f these ups and downs!!

We ate at Granite City because I was craving some spinach and artichoke dip. We split that and a salad. We narrowly made it home before I threw it all up?!? That was a first! My hubby made a stuffed pepper tonight and the smell of his dinner did the same thing tonight... I lost my own dinner. Seems a little backwords, but nights are the worst for me. 8pm rolls around and I am exhausted, emotional and apparently very SE sitive to smells that make me throw up... Yuck! I wonder if I will ever be able to eat cooked vegetables again?!

We are in the midst of debating whether or not to have our First Trimester Screen next week. It is a screening for Downs Syndrome, Trisomy 18, and other chromosomal and genetic defects. It is only a screen and gives you either a positive or a negative result. It is a non-invasive procedure and is done using ultrasound and bloodwork. I have known several people who have gotten positives, worried for several weeks, gotten an amniocentesis (which carries a risk of miscarriage) and then the results come back normal. Seems like a lot of worry and stress for no reason! Ugh. I think we are leaning towards canceling it. We will still have an ultrasound at the appointment... We get one every 3-4 weeks since we are considered high-risk and are carrying twins. We wouldn't do anything about it if either came back positive, so we will find out in time during later ultrasounds if something is really wrong. I just do NOT need anything else to worry about!!

Well, it is almost 8pm... Time for my progesterone and my bed....
