Just Checking In

Long time no talk :) 

All is good here. We are hanging tough and dare I say starting to feel a bit better. I've been in a bit of a fog lately- between constant nausea and fatigue I haven't spent much time online. When I am feeling better I have been trying to be present in everyday life.

We had an OB appointment yesterday- and after a two hour wait- yes a two hour wait!! I got to hear the babies heart beats- Baby A is still much faster than Baby B and I am still convinced its a Girl and a Boy. My BP was perfect at 112/70 -and that was after waiting forever to be seen. I am now down 10lbs instead of 12lbs so I have started to gain some that I have lost back which is good. All my labs came back good as well. So far we are doing just great as we enter into the second trimester. 

My APN told me it won't be long before I may start to feel movement. The babies are currently right on top of one another so she said I should start to feel flutters and sensations soon.

DH and I have scheduled an elective Ultra Sound at a place near us. Its called "The Angle of The Dangle" and we will have two ultra sounds done. Our first is next week as we enter week 14 and they will do a 3d/4d ultra sound and guess the babies genders. The lady I spoke with said that their guesses are normally 90-95% accurate. After that ultra sound they will schedule a return appointment for us to come back and do a second ultra sound and at that appointment they will know the genders for sure. Also at that appointment we plan to bring our parents along since they have a viewing area so we can all find out together. 

We're starting our diaper stockpile as well. So far we have 432 newborn diapers, 476 size 1, and 260 size 3. We also have 2400 wipes stockpiled. The grandparents have gotten in on the diaper stockpile fun and every time they go out they also grab diapers and pile them up at their homes as well.

We've started to plan the lay out of the nursery- but are holding off on designing it until we know what the babies are. Which won't be too long now :) 

I hope you are all doing well. I've been reading and thinking of you all, but will probably continue my internet hiatus a bit longer. 

Can't wait to check in next week and tell you what the guess are! What do you guys think??
