Since I got to see the babies last week before taking off for my trip home to see my folks, I have felt more calm than anxious. Of course, the worry about this amazing dream going POOF is in the back of mind 24-7, but it’s easier to keep the good thoughts front and center after seeing them. 🙂 Sooooo, today was my official 16-weeks appointment, which meant another u/s peek inside (yip!). All there really is to say is that all is well!! I could bore you with details from my convo with my doc (one of Dr. Zen’s partners, they rotate you through each OB in the clinic in the early appointments) about my ubiquitous constie-ness, waking up on my back, cervix stuff, weird rib pains, a comes-and-goes ache on my right side about where I think my ovary is, my shuffling/jogging routine, etc, but I will spare you the details.
The best part is that I saw the babies and they were moving around and their little hearts were beating away. I love them so much! 🙂
Next appointment is in two weeks and then the big anatomy scan—where we finally, finally, finally find out the genders—is in four weeks and three days. We won’t do much toward figuring out the babies’ room or what we’re registering for until we know if we have girls, boys, or a boy and a girl in there, and I am so excited to get to the point where we can do that. The honest to goodness truth is that I have ZERO inkling about what we have, and we are going to be thrilled with any of the above. It’ll just be so awesome to KNOW!
I hope and pray with my whole heart that these sweet babies continue to be healthy and strong.
In other news, hubs’s brother and his brother’s wife are visiting us this weekend. We are really, really excited to show them around Chicago—they’ve never been here before!! But, oof, I’m zonked just thinking about the weekend of adventures we have planned, beginning with an 11pm comedy show tonight after my latest work night of the week. Ummm, bloggies, I haven’t stayed up past 11pm in MONTHS. How in the heck am I going to last until 1:30-ish in the morning?!?!!? (Seriously.) Should be interesting….
Have a great weekend!
