8 weeks and counting!

We're 8 weeks along and a few things were (or at least thought they were) seen at the last ultrasound. The Sonographer said that both the embryos looked good (they'll be fetus' next week) and she still thought they were identical. It looked as if both had their own amniotic sac, which is great news. We also got a pretty cool 3D picture of them (above). When you look at it, Baby A is standing on its head and Baby B is up on the left wall . . . you can make out a little of a facial profile- but they're pretty much "kidney beans" at this point.

We have definitely entered "morning sickness" time . . . I never really had it too bad with my own three, but these two "peanuts" are bringing it. I start to feel nauseous if I go a little while without eating something. My "morning sickness" turns into "nighttime sickness" when around 9:00 PM I start to feel queasy. Also, I'm going to bed a lot earlier than usual. I've been so exhausted this time around. Not sure if it's because I'm carrying 2 or because I'm raising 3 this time around . . . but man, oh, man I'm tired 80% of the day. I usually put my kids down at eight o'clock and then work (around house, internet, etc.) until midnight or so. Now, I put them down and hit the hay myself! Needless to say, the house looks terrible and I haven't done anything to my website in weeks. But I know soon enough I'll be out of this phase . . . . and into another!
