Just One :*(

Well good news and bad news. One baby stopped growing 5 weeks 6 days, so sad. I did see the second baby who is measuring 8 weeks 5 days and heartbeat. I am not sure how I feel except bummed. I am happy the second baby is doing great. I go back in 3 weeks for first trimester screening since my blood test will show elevated levels. I sure hope I don’t have to go through all I did with AJ.


Hello my fellow tech classmates

The amount of information we have learned in this class seems to be overwhelming at first. But now that I have had time to process and apply all our new knowledge I am feeling more confident about the content learned. I have really enjoyed all your presentations and feel that they will help me be a better teacher in the fall. The links so many of you have provided and used in your presentations are so valuable! I hope you all enjoy blogging and take advantage of this means of communication. In my blog I am sure you will learn more about me then you ever wanted to know, read at your own risk.


So we waited forever to be seen by my OB (Dr. Behram) and he came in and was so sweet and excited to see us again. He was really happy to see Ava. Then he hold us he was going to do an internal exam but since I was only 6.5 weeks it maybe possible that he might not see anything. So then Kev starts cracking up because he remember when they did the internal to Izzy in Knocked Up, I tell Dr. Behram that its a really funny movie and he says “Well this isn’t really funny, do you see what I see?” I said “Yes” very matterfactly bc I just knew I was having twins. Then he showed Kevin who said you have to be kidding me. So he checked the first sack and said he saw a yolk and a fetus he could see the second that well and told me that sometimes one twin won’t develop so not to get to excited but to all remember it was really early in the pregnancy and that might be why. He asked me to come back in two weeks and to also go see the Maternal Fetal Specialist I saw with AJ (I love him he is so HOT). So that’s where I am at two sacks praying to babies develop and decide to stick around. I am really trying to stay cautiously optimistic but am SO HAPPY, Kevin is in shock to say the least, my Mom is so worried about how we are going to pay for 3 kids she cried. I need lot’s of prayers and well wishes please.


We took AJ to Clemyjontri Park today; she had a blast. (http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/clemyjontri/playground.htm) That place is so cool. If you are ever in the area I highly recommend it. She had a blast on the bridges and swings. The Merry Go Round really was cool. She loved it, though I was completely nauseaus and dizzy. O n the swings she kept saying out in out in and kicking he legs it was so cute this is her and Kevin practicing:

Addie and her family came too so she had someone to play with and I finally got to talk to Stacey and play with the baby. Nate is getting big though I can’t believe he is 7 months now.

After the park we went to get subs at the Italian Store and waited an hour for 2 subs. I sure which I could have gotten an Italian sub but the meatball was good. The pizza we got Ava was delish. No wonder everyone raves about that place.

I took some belly pics to show how I am starting this pregnancy but I will keep them until 8 weeks because I am hoping it is more bloating than baby. Well I think thats it. My first appointment is next Tuesday and I can’t wait.
