Food is good, right?

There were a few minor things that, if I knew better, could have told me I was pregnant before the pee stick.  The fact that I could hibernate without a second thought, or that all of a sudden I needed new bras (bad news for me and the large "ladies" I already have to contend with), and the eating. I could just eat and eat and eat and eat. Then I got the sinus cold from Hades and I couldn't taste anything... booo! Who wants to eat flavorless food.  Then I found out that there were two babies needing nutrition, so I tried to consume all the servings necessary for this task. Now, I am a lover of food, but this is a difficult task. Most of the snacks and food I eat during the day have no nutritional value, so fruits and nuts and cheese it was.  THEN...  we went on the cruise... I ate all day every day.  The cold was gone, so things were yummy.  Then we get home, and... ehh.. food no taste good. Everything I look at just seems... blah... but if I don't eat, the babies still take what they need, and the dizziness and loss of brain function set in.  I will say that salsa at chili's is gooo-oood.  Especially on fries and little big mouth bites, yuu-uum. Still, on average, this week is gray on the food front.  But herein lies the worse news, no pants fit, already.  Either I ate WAY too much white things were tasty, especially on the cruise, or all my "extra" belly padding is starting to be rearranged by the growing uterus...  oh, btw... I will not be posting pictures of my belly over the weeks, maybe occasionally, but not regularly.

Cruisin' to Mexico

We had a lot of fun doing a lot of nothing on our cruise.  I keep telling everyone that we ate a lot and slept a lot.  It was a nice break.  Of course, I am horrible at taking vacation pictures. I would always rather get pictures of cool looking things than of us "on vacation." I also ran into an Interior Design Grad Student from SFA at Cozumel... small, small world, right?!  Anyway, here are some of our random pictures.
We were greeted by the first of many towel animals after dinner on the first night.
Ryan as we scowered the beach of Progresso for something to make a weapon out of.
This is where I was hanging while he was "working."

Apparently it was mating season, so they were all out looking for friends.

Ryan was snorkeling in Cozumel.

I was hanging out under this.

And enjoying this view.

The two Carnival ships docked at Cozumel.  Ours, and the Carnival Glory.

Off to Mimi's

We've been waiting impatiently to tell Jane about the babies, but we really wanted to tell her in person. We new that we would be staying at her house on the way out for our cruise so we would have a chance to tell her then.  I had Nick in my office make these graphics for me so I could iron them on to onsies to give to her as Mother's Day gifts, along with the latest sonogram picture of course.  We started with this one.....
Then after that set in...  we gave her this one....
She almost didn't believe us! And Aunt Elsa thought we were pullin her leg!!

Well, we are off to Galveston to board the Carnival Esctasy for our trip to Mexico! With Doctor's approval of course!  I guess this is going to be the last vacation for a LONG while!

5 weeks 6 days

Had another sonogram today.  My doctor's office is crazy busy, so you take an appointment when you can get it.  Had a little spotting over the weekend, so when I called they said I could have a sonogram today if I wanted. I also go sent home on bedrest for the rest of the afternoon. Booo!  Sonogram showed that all was well AND that there were two little heartbeats! Yeah babies!!  Baby A heart rate of 110, Baby B heart rate of 120.  Sonogram tech said is was a little low for babies, but still normal for only having hearts for a few days!
There they are! This one went to Mimi in a frame!

Here we are ladies and gentlemen! Your eyes are NOT deceiving you, there are two dark blobs in the giant blob there!!  I was so shocked I couldn't keep from giggling. There are no twins in either side of our family, just a natural wonder of nature I guess.  Man, has my 9 month financial plan gonna have to change significantly!!

This is 5 weeks and 1 day.
