I am getting rounder by the day.
Yesterday I went to my best friend’s house. She just had a baby 2 weeks ago, and has another that turned 1 last month. Yes two children under 1.
She says she’s tired. Of course she is. And with that I see my future!
I asked her so many questions about everything: strollers, diapers, food.
Turns out a newborn goes through 6-8 diapers a day. Double that and times that by a week I should be changing diapers 112 times a week! Believe me I am not complaining. I wake up every day thankful to G-D. Yes, the thought of twins is very overwhelming. But as my friend
Kj& thekids said that at least I will be able to jump into twins without prior knowledge of how much easier one single child can be.
I’ve also come to the conclusion that when people will ask me whether or not twins run in my family I will say no. I don’t need to give them my life story (even though technically my cousin had twins last year).
I just hope they continue to grow and be healthy. Nothing worries me more than my children- and they aren’t even here yet!
Pregnancy Symptoms so far:
-Tummy very large
-Nauseous in the mornings (but no actual throwing up yet)
-Breasts tender and getting large
– Nails are getting stronger and longer (my nails never grow!)
-Bathroom trips are often and I am NOT constipated.
-Tired all the time
-Hungry all the time
All in all not too bad.
I would love some suggestions for my nauseousness. I take the train to and from work every morning and I almost puked today. I drink a lot of seltzer which seems to be working, but I need a better remedy. On Friday when we went in for the sono I asked my doctor of I should be feeling morning sickness, since I hadn’t yet. He said “wait”. I guess I spoke too soon.
I started my new job today and it’s going well. Its very laid back and relaxed and my boss is cool. I am just dreading the day next month when I sit her down and tell her that I am pregnant- I bet she wont see that one coming so soon! But what can I do- I interviewed for the position long before the IVF. I got the job one day before my positive beta- so truthfully there is nothing that can be done. I will need your advice before I muster up the courage next month to talk to her (when I will be in my 2nd trimester G-D willing)
The good thing is, not too many people know me at my new job so I can blend in for now (without sticking out like a sore thumb- they may just think I’m large in my gut area)
So the past few nights have been very hot here in NYC. On Saturday afternoon I slept with my AC on and awoke with back and shoulder pain. It happened again today. My back is caught and my only option to not have this happen is to sleep sans air conditioning. How can I do that? The heat is horrible. I have no idea what to do!
Other than that Im just plugging along for now!
