Just Some Filler…

I’m set up to do some iChatting with my sister at 9, so to stay awake I thought I would spend some time here and actually blog about what we’ve been up to. Sorry to have left you all up at the lake- a lot has happened since then.
Two weeks ago, we made a trip to the ER because I was having abdominal pain. I thought it might be my gallbladder, and, knowing I was pregnant, wanted to get that checked out in case it was rupturing or something. We discovered that my organs were all doing great, especially my uterus, which was housing two babies! What a shock! I was so grateful God had us go into the ER- He wanted us to find out this piece of the puzzle, definitely. Now the abdominal pain is somewhat explained by double the hormones and double the morning (afternoon, evening) sickness. Whew. I hope the yucky feelings subside in the next month or two. For some it can last all nine months, a possibility I am bracing myself for.
I’ve figured out that if I eat every hour, I can achieve a sort of baseline as far as daily activity. School, dishes, laundry, child care- these are the biggies and the only things to get done for a while, until I find an unattractive nanny. Joke. Last week saw us at three different doctor appointments. The first day went well- I forgot to pack my hourly snack, but a Duke station on the way came through for me with some water and a Nutrigrain bar. I arrived home almost energetic, and was excited that maybe the morning sickness might be on its way out. Well…The next day was rough- I remembered my snack but left it in the car so I had to sit many minutes and look at pale green walls, entertaining A Flat with nothing but a set of John Deere keys (thanks for the stroller, Leigh Ann!). She quickly tired of them, kicking me to get down, and I was kicking myself for not bringing sustenance for us both. The third day went okay, but by the time I got home I was so exhausted. The weekend and today have been passing pretty much the same- tired and sick are my constant companions. Par for the course, and I am not complaining. These babies must need a boatload of nutrients, and it is encouraging to think when I am at my worst, that they are getting their strongest. Grow and thrive, little darlings.
