Everything is different this time around (starting with the fact that this time we were trying to have a baby and not preventing), so I kinda feel like I'm pregnant for the 1st time. I hear tales that I will only have to go to the doctor once a month for a while- how wonderful! My last trimester won't be spent in the doctor's office for 2 hours, 2 times a week? Yes please! I might be awake and actually doing something during childbirth? What novelty! Oh and I'm not going to be feeling 8 limbs doing the conga in my belly when I'm trying to sleep? Bliss! But I think the best part is that I won't get to the point where I only have 2 shirts that fit over my monstrous belly until maybe month 9 instead of month 7!
I will miss getting to have an ultrasound with full anatomy scans for the baby at every single doctor's appointment. Even though I hated going to my 2 doctors from 3 to 10 times a month (and paying all those copays), I will miss getting to check on the baby so often. So I am in for some new stuff and we are so happy. We ask the twins "where's mommy's baby?" and they point to my stomach and it is so cute! That's how we broke the news to Russell's parents ( ;
