Sorry to those of you who faithfully read my blog...especially you E &S. I have been so very under the weather with these kidney stones. I landed back in the hospital with a serious infection (due to these things) and was there for the better part of a week. I am feeling okay for now. I am trying to stay positive and healthy for "Luke" and "Leia" so here is hoping for a better week ahead. I saw my OB for the first time this week and he and his Nurse Practitioner are both wonderful. They have alot of questions about surrogacy but they are eager to treat me and these babies and seem to be as excited as I am. It is starting to become aparant to many that there are indeed TWO babies on board this ship:) I am not growing as rapidly as I anticipated simply because I have been sick but after every meal...THERE. THEY. ARE!!! Sticking out for the world to see. I am in need of a t-shirt already that says "I am not the Mommy, just the Stork" or "These are not my husbands babies...don't worry they're not mine either"...or something clever. Let me know suggestions because I am getting the "Oh, honey two more??? You're gonna have your hands full" I know I am not so I would just like a shirt that will do the explaining for me:)
I am 11 weeks on monday which means only one more week of shots and hormones that make me feel bonkers and then it's just pregnancy as usual. I could be wrong but I think I am starting to feel a slight hint of movement...could just be that my uterus is 2 times as big as it ever was with my kiddies but still, there is definately something going on. In a few weeks I will be feeling them all the time. E & S, I think of you every time...I wish so badly you were here to feel my belly and talk to your babies. We'll have to figure out a way to do that once they can actually hear!
For now it is school and homework and kids and their homework and baths and books and bedtime and on and on...I so love my life. I am blessed that this torrid and painful time in my life has been touched with love and hope for two precious lives...
Thanks for reading, xoxo
