I'm trying to decide if I want to post my belly photos. I've been taking them since I was 9 weeks and I'm 17 now. I'm a bit embarrassed about showing my bare stomach to everyone.
Lately things have been going slowly and bumpy. I've been desperately trying to get our house cleaned and organized but it's not as easy as it seems. The fact that I can't lift anything over 15 pounds really makes things difficult. Normally I would be moving furniture and lugging boxes around but now...I'm stuck. Also the fact that I'm terribly exhausted even before I start doing anything much less. Slowly but surely I guess. I only have a few months more to work on the house so I just gotta push through it. It's just frustrating knowing that you have so much stuff to do and such a small amount of time to do it. When I can actually see some real progress I think it will motivate me a bit more...now, it's just depressing. :-/
I went to my second appointment with my OB. I really didn't do or learn anything new. Since I get all my sonograms with the Internal Fetal Medical Specialist my other appointments are really just about blood work and questions now. Everything is normal and all the crappy symptoms that I'm having are normal. I had to go get some more blood tests done to test for neural tubal defects (brain defects), cystic fibrosis, and other scary things. Tomorrow we get to see the doctor and hopefully, if the babies aren't camera shy, we will be able to find out what gender they are.
