Thank you, everyone, for being just as excited we are about Friday's big announcement! It has been fun to hear/read/see everyone's reactions, which seems to range from squeals of excitement to a look of shock followed by nervous laughter- don't worry, we have experienced every emotion in between ourselves!
To answer a few lingering questions:
- Yes, we do plan to find out if they are boys, girls, or one of each. We have had people predict eery possible combination, so no predominant guess so far.
- No, we don't have names picked out yet, but we are working on it. Coming up with 3 different combinations is a little bit of a challenge, but obviously we have plenty of time.
- We still have not been given a concrete due date, and they were measuring a little bit ahead of schedule at our last appointment, so my safest guess is that they are due some time in April (which means they will share a birth month with my mom, Brian's dad, Brian's mom, and Davis!)
So that's that. I am still not feeling too bad for the most part, but my confusing relationship with food continues. I basically feel like I am dealing with constant indigestion, with a few moments of I-have-to-eat-right-now-or-I-will-die in between. Although generally as soon as I do eat following those moments, I feel uncomfortably full after just a few bites.
I have just 2-3 more appointments with the fertility clinic before I'll (finally!) be released to my OB (first appointment tentatively scheduled for October 12th). Apparently I will also get to stop taking the progesterone and estrogen supplements that week, which excites me almost as much as the fact that Needle Lady said that I can resume taking baths the following week. I am thinking about having a party because this occasion certainly merits a celebration, wouldn't you agree?
Oh, and yes, to clarify, I am still going to acupuncture once a week through the end of the first trimester. It's nice to have 20 minutes of forced relaxation each week, and it also seems to be keeping some of the notorious first trimester symptoms out of the way, so I'll take it!
Other than that, we are just carrying about life as normal, which at this time of year means that Brian is glued to the TV watching football while I mindlessly peruse the internet approximately 75% of the time. Fall is really productive at our house, as you can imagine.
Have a great week, peeps!
