Still here

...and still getting over this monster of a cold. This nasty thing has been going around the lab where I one is safe!

But I am getting better and my appetite is increasing, so that is good. In fact, after I finish typing this up, it's time for a snack!

Next week, actually next Tues I go in for the amnio. Am I nervous? Kind of. At this point I'm actually settling into the idea that I'm REALLY pregnant with two babies (and not just getting fat and irritable).

To let you know what leap this is for me, I'll let you know a little secret. I've actually given nicknames to the babies: bit and bot. Not that original, but that is just what keeps coming up in my mind. "Naming" them is a scary proposition for me. Up until this point in my life, I would have always told you I was an optimist. And I am: FOR YOU. Everything WILL work out well for you. Just not for me. Dang, that sounds harsh....

I guess I am still waiting for the proverbial "other shoe to drop." I was hoping that this would cease when I actually got pregnant. Then when I reached the 3 month milestone. Now, I am not sure that it ever will, but I am doing my best not to dwell on it. But I still realize that I keep a "healthy(??)"distance from the pregnancy.
In fact, some baby update-thingy suggested that at 15 weeks you should start talking to the baby to help strengthen the bond between the two of you. I almost passed out. I have only just gotten the courage to give them nicknames, let alone have a conversation with them.

I've always been a late bloomer, perhaps we'll start our "conversations" at little bit later :)

That cold better go away to the Kingdom of Faraway Land, from where it came!

All the best for the amnio! And be good!

Eat away!

Well, I'm here to be optimistic for you! Everything is going to work out wonderfully for you, bit and bot! I hope you get over your cold soon. Good luck with the amnio.

Well, you've already made it this far! What a blessing! 15 weeks pregnant! You're beyond the dreaded 1st trimester!

I can't believe you're still sick! I hope you get feeling better soon!

I also hope the amnio goes well... Why are you getting one?

I never really talk to the babies either, it's weird, so I sing out loud instead! LOL!

Nahh, you're doing it just right for you. My friend, who is also pregnant with twins, and didn't suffer through any infertility, didn't really let herself get too involved until after the amnio results. then she broke down in a a puddle, and has been talking to them ever since.

I had a amnio too, and it wasn't until after the results came back (perfect) that I really believed I was pg! Even then I didn't have "conversations" with him, although I was always thinking loving thoughts. That is probably more a personality thing with you - whether you will do the conversation thing or not. Best of luck on the amnio - fyi it didn't hurt at all (esp thinking of all the millions of shots I've done now!) but it was really nerve-wracking.
