Holy Exhaustion, Batman!

First, please accept my humble apologies for not updating in the past 2 weeks (!!!).  I have been so unbelievably tired during the past few weeks.  Apparently, growing babies is hard work.  I've also been really cranky, so you'd probably not want to read anything I'd have written anyway.  Trust me on this.  I'm going to ply you with a picture of the babies, so you can't be mad at me. 

7weeks, 4 days!
We got to see the twins again on Jan. 5.  They are growing so quickly, and their little heartbeats were fast and so strong.  Such a tiny thing, but hearing that steady whoosh-whoosh-whoosh was amazing.  I don't think that I'll ever get tired of hearing that sound.  It's reassuring and steady.  Just perfect.

I graduated to see my OB a bit early at 8 weeks, but I'm not complaining.  Reproductive Endocrinologists are amazing doctors and excel at getting women pregnant, but OBs they are not.  I need a little hand-holding and baby-centered care right now that the Baby Maker and his wonderful staff are simply not equipped to give me.  They are all really excited that I am pregnant, of course, but you can tell that their bottom line is how many successful cycles they turn out each year.  When we were leaving, my nurse hugged me and said, "Your success is our success!", which really sums up how they feel about their patient's pregnancies.  Don't get me wrong, we'll be back if/when we are ready to attempt another pregnancy, but I'm ready to see my OB on the 19th so I can start feeling somewhat "normal"!    


  1. Congrats Mary Margaret to you and your husband! So happy and excited for you. It is a bit surreal hearing the heartbeat at first.. so cool. Wait until the first time you feel a little foot or elbow kick you. Amazing. I was exhausted in the first few weeks of being preg. with my son, and that was only one baby! So I can imagine how tired you must be with two. Take lots of naps! :o) Prayers for a healthy pregnancy! :o)

  2. Beautiful picture!!!! You are supposed to be dog tired, and really, really cranky all perfect signs. Keep us up to date when you can and rest, your body is so busy right now growing two beautiful babies.

  3. How great to hear all is okay! Growing two babies must take more energy so no wonder you are tired. Take care of yourself and rest when you can, okay.

  4. All is allowed and doubly forgiven because OMIGOSH LOOKIT THOSE CUTE BAYBEES!! I also got the feeling my RE was congratulating himself more than me but I don't feel my OB knows how super extra special I am. Doesn't matter in the end though: Hooray for babies!

  5. Mary Margaret I am so excited for you. Thanks for sharing your photo of the babies. Sit down, put your feet up, and rest up for those beautiful babes.
