I am thrilled to announce that I’m pregnant!
Many you may have already guessed from my radio silence for the last couple of months. I had fully intended to keep writing about random topics, but I could never figure out what to say that wasn’t about finally being pregnant.
I got my positive beta test on December 28th. It was 612, which was a vast improvement from last try were it was 27. I was tentatively excited. The second beta seemed to be what would really make me believe that this was actually happening. I had that second test on New Year’s Eve and it had doubled! That was the point when I felt comfortable enough telling my siblings. It all still felt surreal and I’ve got to say that even today at 12 weeks, after multiple ultrasounds, and major morning sickness, it still sometimes doesn’t feel real.
While I’ve started to feel better, the morning sickness has been pretty awful. The mornings are rough…really rough. I have to do everything in slow motion. I eat almost every hour on the hour and some days struggled to stay awake in the middle of the work day. Through all of the sickness, I just keep thinking that it’s proof that I’m pregnant and that the babies are growing like they should.
That’s right, I said babies! It’s twins! Even though I always knew that was a possibility, it has still been an adjustment to the idea of two, but I really couldn’t be happier. I hope you all understand why I stayed quiet until now and I’m very excited to continue sharing my story with you!
