Oh this experience thus far has been so wonderful. My intended parents are simply the sweetest and most generous IPs. I never would have expected the match to be this great. I posted on facebook, but I received a package in the mail full of Burt's Bees products. I have never tried their skin care line. I must say, I love it. This is really just one of the many nice things they have done. I don't even want to list some of the others. I'd feel braggy. Since I am well into the second trimester now, I am feeling great and it's almost not like work at all, so I don't feel I deserve to be so spoiled. I am not complaining at all. It really just helps make me feel even more secure in this decision and in them as my match. I don't know how I got so lucky. I am just glad.
Symptoms right now:
- some headaches in the evening
-hunger- either I want to eat everything in sight or absolutely nothing sounds good.
-it is getting slightly uncomfortable to sleep because I either need to go pee or I have heartburn
-cravings- they change every day. right now I want fried eggs with toast and a peanut butter milkshake.
In other news: My husband is amazing.
For every craving I have had or every nap I have needed in the middle of the day he has been understanding. He is just as perfect now as when I was pregnant with his own baby, which is far better than I expected. He agreed to this journey as much as I did, but the true test was when I started putting Popsicles, kosher dill pickles, and a few other odd things in the cart and he just went along with it. He also has gone downstairs to get me pickles on several occasions when I wanted them. Once again, I find myself astounded at my luck.
As far as the babies, I have felt a few flutters, but I am never quite sure if they are babies moving or my stomach acting up. The babies will be about the size of avocados by Tuesday. Our next ultrasound isn't until the 28th so we have a little bit of time before I get to see them again. This one is just to check cervical length to make sure it's enough to hold these babies in long enough.
I do have a sight baby bump now, but some of the bump is really just leftover chub, so I feel like it's cheating to post a cute belly picture now. Maybe I will get one later. :)
I have no concerns or worries. I am a textbook pregnant- even with twins apparently.
