9w 5d

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since my last post. Time flies when you spend your days puking :)

Everything is just perfect with the twins. I had my first OB appt today and we saw them both dancing around in there (they get their moves from their mommy). I'm getting sick at least once a day, but it's usually more. I've stopped the PNV's for a few weeks, and the Zofran is long-gone, so my constipation is going away. It's not normal yet, but at least we're heading in the right direction.

EJ is getting more active by the day and I'm getting more exhausted every day. I'm not sleeping well at night, but at least I don't feel sick when I lay down in bed. We're doing a lot more "big kid" things with EJ like coloring, play doh, etc. Those are the times I sit on the floor next to his little table and enjoy the "stillness". LOL.

I'm so lucky to have my Mom close by as she is a constant help when I'm just too sick to get off the couch (or out of the bathroom). She's all fun and games so EJ giggles and runs to the door just at the mention of "Mom-Mom". She's so wonderful to him...and the cookies & chocolate chip pancakes she makes are an added bonus to a 22-month old.

My SIL just had her ER yesterday...47 eggs! Holy sh!!t right? 24 fertilized and they're hoping to do a day 5 transfer on Monday. I really wish I could help her out more with watching my niece, but again my Mom is there to help out. My Mom is going to deserve a vacation very soon. Many days she'll have both kids at once since our appts always seem to fall at the same time. It's great how EJ and his cousin get along, but I'm sure my Mom would also enjoy sipping coffee and watching her soap operas. Haha. I swear I don't know what I would do if she wasn't retired!

Oh well, off to read some books to my little man :D

Wow. 47 eggs. Holy sh**.

Good to hear from you! Time really does fly - but I am glad to know that the babies are doing so well.

So glad that the twins are growing and dancing.

Good luck to your sister in law for her transfer. She's lucky that she has you in her family to cheer her on and understand her fears and frustrations. Plus you are a walking inspiration to the wonders of IVF
