........yeah... I know... you don't have to tell me... my shirt and pants don't match LOL
I didn't even realize MYSELF how round I was until I went to take a pic of my bellybutton for myself... this pic wasn't even MEANT to be share... I just wanted to SEE it LOL
Getting bigger...and bigger... by the day it seems <3
Only about 15.5 weeks left... 15.5... holay smokes!
I can't believe it sometimes... and I can't believe how FAST this pregnancy is going! By far.. the fastest one yet! I thought my first one went by super quick because I spent literally from the first day until the DAY before I went into labor [labor started at 40w6d] in school. The second, I spent over half of it in school, and hte second half dragged on... forever. This time, I'm at home... full time. So I thought it was going to... drag on forever and ever. I was soo wrong!
In about 10 weeks, it could be any day!
I'm sorry I haven't been around... I've been super sick. I thought sickness lasted forever with a singleton pregnancy... but my body is having like... 10x harder time getting better from this with TWO. It's been almost a week wince it all started... maybe only 5 days... but ti seems like a week. Started with aches, then a slight runny nose, then a sore throat + runny nose, and then a sore throat + super runny nose + cough. It's the normal cold that we all get, it's just taking forever to just set in and then leave haha. No real fever, but I am watchingit for strep throat... which apparently I'm prone to while pregnant.
The cough is the worst part... it makes everything else SEEM a lot worse than it really is.
So yes... it's probably not nearly as bad as it FEELS, but we allll know that the sinus and throat cold... SUCK. I'm nearly at the point where I'm willing to get a sitter for a day.. and just sleeeeeep.
Josh has been going through... a lot... lately. That's putting it lightly.
So I can't really ask him to come over and take care of hte kids while I sleep right now. I'm... exhausted.
But, other than feeling sick... I dno't have many complaints. Yes... I'm sore and I've been a lot more achy in my pelvix, but I knwo that's a lot to do with being sick right now. Most of my aches and pains are... if I elimate those... and the tiredness of fighting this cold off... I'm feeling pretty fricken good to be honest.
I had someone say that they were "miserable" throughout most of their twin pregnancy. It kind of upset me... how many people get to carry twins?
I know I DO complain a bit... but I hope that I get it out that I'm also EMBRACING the experience as well. Yeah... it comes with it's disadvantages... but man... there are TWO babies in there!! Some people are miserable from day 1 with ONE baby... do people think it'll be a rollercoaster of sunshine and rainbows?
I know that I didn't have the same situation as them... I'm not them.... etc etc... but I think that we should also appreciate what we're doing as surrogates... it's 9 months for crying out loud... I think we can sacrifice that for a life time of happiness....right? We do for our own kids... and we could actually have them ourselves... imagine the ENHANCED joy if we couldn't.
I get that near the end... most of us are saying "Is it over yet??!!" ... the swelling, puking, bloating, aches, pains, headaches, sinus congestion, exhaustion, decreased immune system and the thousand other things you can deal with during pregnant ARE annoying... but common... especially as a surrogate, we have to have known what we were getting into. We signed up to help someone. That's what we shoudl be focuxing on.
I'm sorry to rant, I always seem to do that huh? lol
