Tracy's Multiples Pregnancy Journal ~ a story of pregnancy after infertility

Week Seventeen
~ Tummy Time

I'm feeling pregnant this week. I'm starting to show a little. Those who know me are starting to notice. I generally don't wear tight fitting clothing, so I'll probably get a way with not having to wear maternity clothes for a little longer. Larry loves the fact that when I hug him now he can feel that my tummy is growing. I make him feel my tummy almost every night when I lie down so that he can see how much they are growing. I do feel less sick which is great. The occasional sciatic pain and dizziness I can live with!

This week I turned 31! I always said that I wanted to be pregnant with my first child when I turned 30. I wasn't last year, but we were going through the infertility process. When I realized that I wouldn't be pregnant by the time I was 30, I told myself that I would be for sure by 31. Well, I made it this year. Boy, did I!! Most of my brothers and sisters called to wish me a happy birthday. I haven't talked to all of them since we found out that we're expecting. I really enjoying talking babies with them. I have three older brothers, an older sister, and a younger sister. Ages range from 48 to 29. I love being from a large family. Holidays are so much fun.

I am looking forward to our trip to Virginia for Thanksgiving. I think all of my brothers and sisters will be there, nephews and niece, and my parents. I will get to see my nephew's new baby girl who should be born any day now. I will also have my first baby shower while I'm there. They are planning it for Thanksgiving Day since everyone will be there at one time. Not easy with a family so large!!

We are hoping to go back next week for another ultrasound. Larry's sister Missy is going to try again to see what they are. I have an appointment the following week with Dr H, who will be in Fetal Assessment that day doing anatomy scans. If Missy can't see for some reason next week, we'll have another chance a week later. Can you tell we are dying to know what we are having? I don't want to buy anything until we know.

No more news on the baby names. We're waiting for that too. We can't seem to agree on any, so we've agreed to at least wait until we know what gender names we should look at.
