very very sneaky

Yay for medicine! The Zofran came in and I am a normal person again. Or at least I am after I set my alarm at 5am so I can take the meds and go back to bed. Then I trick my body into thinking it feels better on its own when I wake up at 6 :-)

We have spent this week doing a lot of resting and cleaning around the house. I am usually too exhausted at night to do anything but lay on the couch and pass out around 9pm. However, we did get two exciting books about having twins in the mail from Amazon. We have loved reading "When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads" which really details out how multiple pregnancies are different than single ones. Did you know that twin pregnancies cause you to look the same as a single pregnancy that is 6-8 weeks ahead of you? Or that by 24 weeks, my uterus will be as big as a basketball? While I find this fascinating, it did cause a little anxiety in Brian. That's a lot of tummy!

Double Trouble Watch 2009: Well we know that both our little sweet peas hearts are beating strong this week (since we heard them and all). Now that I have less nausea, I feel a lot better and can actually function more in the morning. My stomach is starting to swell a little bit (already switching over to the maternity pants!) and I am excited for all the fun changes as the babies get bigger.

Life is always a rich and steady time
when you are waiting for something
to happen or to hatch.
