24 weeks!

WOW! We are 24 weeks today! I cant believe it...are we really this far along already?

My hubby took some pics of me last night and comparing them to the 22 week pics, I would say that I have definitely grown...or should I say, the babies have grown! I didn't get much bigger than this with my singleton pregnancies, so it will be interesting to see how big I get with twins.

I've been having trouble sleeping the last two nights, I find that I wake up with the side that I was sleeping on to be going numb. I then switch to the other side, and then wake up a little bit later with that side going numb. I don't understand it, I will have to ask the Dr. next week. I hope there is something I can do to prevent/help it, because it is causing me to get very poor sleep.

Yesterday we (more me) had this great idea to take the boys to Sea World to go through the Scary Forest and go trick-or-treating "under the sea." Well, I say it was a great idea (being sarcastic) because with a little bit of walking, I was already hot and light-headed! I know my boys would have been so sad to leave the park so early, so my sweet hubby pushed me around in a wheel-chair the rest of the time! What would I do without him? Im glad we got to have a good time, its important to me to still be able to take our kids out and do things we would normally do. I want this to have as little effect on them as possible through-out this whole surrogacy process.

Heres to 24 weeks down...keep your fingers crossed for 12 more to go!

when I wake up...

Some mornings when I wake up, I still cant believe that I am pregnant with TWINS! Its very surreal to me!

I haven't posted in a long time, I just have been so busy with school! Also not much has been going on, Im in that "boring" stage of know where everything is going great! And by going great I didnt mention: back ache, pressure (down there), being sooo tired, starting to waddle like a duck, clothes are getting tighter, stretch marks getting bigger, babies starting to kick my ribs :) and im sure there are others I am forgetting...but really I am enjoying this experience.
I do have my good and my bad days. I am just glad that my hubby loves me unconditionally, because boy can I be mean and emotional! The good thing is that I have more good days than bad days. I have noticed that I am a lot more emotional this pregnancy than I was with my other two. Maybe cuz its twins? I cry at the drop of a hat, and when it starts, its really hard to stop. I just have to remember that I will be okay, and I am getting through this. I am by no means, having a hard time, it just has its challenging days.
I have two appointments coming up: u/s on the 18th and an ob apt on the 21st. I will update with pics on the 18th! I cant wait to see them, hopefully they will show their faces this time! They are always so shy! Baby A was head down and Baby B was transverse, so I hope that Baby A stays head down and maybe Baby B will follow.

P.S. 110 days to go! exciting! (actually probably more like 80-89 days left-remember twins come around 36-37 wks on average)
