Today I am officially 11 weeks 2 days pregnant, and my appointment on Friday went great. Both babies were moving around, especially Baby B. Baby A looks like s/he is waving at us in the ultrasound photo. Both babies were measuring one day ahead with great heartbeats.
Morning sickness has gotten way worse the past two weeks. Unfortunately I have been continuing to lose weight (down 7 lbs.) but the doctor wasn’t worried about it right now. My list of food I can stomach is also decreasing down to crackers, soup, toast, PB&J, and smoothies. That’s pretty much it. On the bright side I am not as exhausted as I was before. I can actually make it through the whole day without a nap, although if I get the chance I will still take one.
After almost 5 years of infertility every time I see the babies on the ultrasound it does not seem real. I just lay there looking at them sort of unbelieving that they are mine, and they are doing well.
