11 Week Ultrasound and Graduation Day!

Friday was a big day- I went in for lab work, another ultrasound, and had my first prenatal with the midwives.  The babies measured 11wks 1dy and 11wks 4dys and had strong heart beats.  After reviewing my results, the IVF doctor approved my coming off medication and graduated my care to the midwives.  Finally in my element. :)

I had a couple of very sick days last week, which were caused by either pregnancy or the stomach flu, I'm not sure which one.  It's always hard to discern in pregnancy!  Either way I am grateful for the good health this week brings.  Overall I have had the best first trimester I have ever had in a pregnancy, with less than a handful of sick days.

My cravings have been all over the board, but I can tell you that I am definitely hungrier growing two babies.  From chef salads to fresh juice to Round Table pizza and homemade soup with farmer's market produce, I have been enjoying a feast of sorts.  Food is part of the celebration.

I cried watching an episode of Friends the other night (Phoebe was a surrogate.)  The hormones are strong and the emotions are not far under the surface.  On a conscious level I don't quite know what I'm in for but something inside me is processing the journey.  It's a blessed one at that.
