The cat is trying to escape from the bag...

So it turns out people just love telling other people you are pregnant, even when you told them not to. Sheesh. Of course it doesn't help that I have told a few people myself, but it was necessary! First of all, in order to manage my morning sickness I have been eating constantly, therefore I already look 4 months pregnant with twins, secondly it sucks feeling like crap and having to pretend you feel fine.

The dads were pretty excited about our news on Saturday, although my dad immediately started asking who else already knew; he is a heat seeking missile for the truth. Of course now I am finding out that both dads went home and told the extended families. Sigh.

I can't believe I have to wait until the 19th for another doctor appointment. I wonder what that will be all about. Will I get to hear the heartbeat? I hope so. I am such a anxious person, I am already worried again.

Phew, what a relief!

Guess what? I really AM pregnant! We got to see the baby's little heartbeat today, it was so cool! The heart rate was 131 which the doctor said is totally normal. I am measuring at 6 weeks 6 days, so a little behind where I thought I was according to ovulation. I am so ecstatic right now that I am practically walking on clouds.

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day everyone! The drive back from the beach only took 5 1/2 hours, thank god. I am so happy to be in my clean house with my lovely animals. The beach was fun but perhaps not my thing. In the future I think I need to plan vacations where I can go to the movies and museums and restaurants. Sitting at the beach is boring lol. It really didn't help that my morning sickness decided to kick in on the 6 hour trip down there. It was miserable and I spent the rest of the week feeling awful but trying to have fun. The beach house was seriously amazing and our friends were fun to be around but just thinking about the trip makes me nauseous.

When we got home I gave Mac his father's day presents; a little card that expressed how lucky he is to have me and a onesie that says "I love Daddy".

Next weekend we are having my dad and Mac's dad over for a home cooked lunch so we can tell them we are pregnant. The moms already know, of course.

Tomorrow is our first ultrasound, I am so nervous! What if there isn't anything there? Tomorrow morning can not come soon enough.

Oookay just got off the phone with my doc and my HCG needed to be at 192 in order to be doubling every 48 hours like it is supposed to and it is at 235!!!! yay!!!!
He said I can schedule my first ultrasound for 2 weeks from now.. which is when we are at the beach so I scheduled it for the Monday after we get back (the 21st).

I knew I was nervous but I didn't know how nervous til I almost cried when he told me the results. He joked that he hoped there aren't 4 babies in there... haha!
