Hey everyone! For those who didn't catch it in the other threads, OMG I am having twins Not been posting much as my sister's wedding was the weekend. Was mostly fun with some frustrations surrounding my parents and their spoiling of my DD and unrealistic expectations and not respecting me and DH as adults/parents at times, but we've decided we are going to address it with them (again) and then just do whatever we need to do. My brother who is right after me in age is also going to talk to them as they tend to listen to him better than the rest of us. I don't want to bore you all, but DH has decided for now he is not coming back for Thanksgiving as he needs a break from their BS and I can't blame them. He said he is fine with me and Sydney going, even though he is bummed to miss out on Thanksgiving with us, but he just can't take it. He may change his mind depending on the outcome of my brother talking to my parents, but I doubt it. Anyway, lots of fun...but twins, wow! I'm mostly over the shock and full on into research mode as that is one of the ways I deal the best with new things. The OB is confident (and so am I from the U/S we saw) that they are di/di, separate sacs, separate placentas, so the lowest risk twins. Probably fraternal (DZ) as those run in the family, but can't tell for sure yet.
For Halloween, DD's daycare always does a trick or treat in the daycare, either out of people's trunks if the weather is nice or inside their gym if not. So I'll go to that with Sydney tomorrow and she's going to be Captain America as that is her current favorite, she's been wearing the costume nearly everyday since I brought it home. We won't do regular trick or treat as with her allergies (peanuts & tree nuts) there is just so much of the treats that I would have to take away and she is too young to understand that yet. When she's older, we'll work out a trade system so she can get something she can eat for the stuff she can't.
For pregnancy symptoms, all of a sudden I'm into the OMG hungry mode I was in for most of my first pregnancy. Which is good honeslty as I need to eat more than I have been for twin, especially more protein. I did a quick grocery store run today at lunch to stock up on protein heavy snacks for work (peanut butter & cheese bread, greek yogurt and PB&Cheese crackers) and I'll pick up some eggs to make hard-boiled ones tonight along with whatever else I can think of that is peanut/treenut free for home, definitely some yogurt and string cheese or other cheese snack for home. I'm already getting into that it's hard to get comfortable to sleep time that I didn't really get into until at least half-way through last time. I'm going to be breaking out pillows soon!
Twins! How did I miss that!? Congrats!
I will be back to read more and write more tomorrow. I was gone all day today.
