I'm overall doing well. Cervix is long and closed and the previous partial placenta previa that caused some bleeding around week 14 has resolved. Weight gain slowed down this month (thank goodness), BP and urine were fine. The sickies from the 1st trimester are a thing of the past but, nasty heartburn has begun so I'm going to start meds daily to hopefully keep it at bay and I'm also already experiencing some early signs of circulation restriction in my legs so the OB has me taking once a day baby aspirin. I'm starting to get uncomfortable but just chugging along for now because I know this is just the beginning. Everything is happening even just a bit earlier than my last twin pregnancy, I think my body knows what it's in store for. I'm starting to feel lots of movement and they are getting stronger each day. I can't wait for mom and dad to feel the first baby kicks for themselves.
My IPs made their news FB official a few weeks back and they had an overwhelmingly positive response to the announcement. I feel so honored that they have entrusted me with these two lil miracles and I can't wait until they are safely in J&G's arms and they can begin their life as a family of five.
Twins coming November 2015
We are excited to announce that after 3 long years of IVF, and with the help of our amazing friend and gestational carrier, our family is growing. Someday we will be brave enough to share why this was the only option for us but, for now we just want to be like any other normal pregnant family and share our good news.
