Pregnancy Details

SO I guess I had my fun yesterday being vague and now I'll give some details.  No I did not just take that pregnancy test, it was taken about 7 weeks ago or so.  I am now 11 weeks along and the baby is due August 14th.  We are super excited and I have only been a little bit nauseous off and on from weeks 4 to 9.  I'm good now and can't wait to get into some comfy maternity clothes (but I guess I have to wait until I 'm actually showing, darn) 

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 ( ;

That's great! I hope everything goes well for you! Abby loves to put her hand on my tummy and says, "move". (she wants to feel the baby moving....she doesn't really know what's going on, she just know the other kids get so excited to feel the baby moving that she wants to do it too.)

As much as I didn't want twins before I read about your pregnancy, I reaaally would not like them now! I didn't think of the limbs moving all about while you would be trying to sleep! I would never have guessed you were pregnant when we were in town. What a cute way to tell Mitch and Jan.
