I should have posted sooner, but I've been tired, sick, or busy. We found out last week that the two embryos that were transfered on April 5th are still in there and developing healthily. Such great news!!!! We were all able to hear the heartbeats, it was so wonderful. A&M are beyond thrilled it is so good to see. I am excited too because I have always wanted to be pregnant with twins -- now I can experience it :))

My sickness is not all from the pregnancy. Last week one of the kids brought home a cold, so hubby and I had to catch it this weekend. It has been a rough couple days, but it is finally looking up.

There's not much else to report for now. We're going in for another ultrasound tomorrow. :)

Busy Weeks

Everything is going great, but just been busy, sick, or tired. I'm happy to report that the pregnancy is progressing wonderfully. We go in tomorrow for the first ultrasound to see how many little ones that A&M will be expecting. Of course they will both be there to see, we're all so excited!

We have been having so much fun this past week with all sorts of little adventures. First, we went to the Blazers last playoff game on Thursday night. They didn't win, but it was a super close game. We all had a blasty blast. Here is my family before it started

Then on Saturday we drove to Eugene to see A perform with her concert choir. We arrived way early, but geocached a bit to kill the time. Such a fun little hobby to do anywhere in the world to pass the time or see interesting sites. It was great to see A&M and spend time with them and also see A with her amazing talent.

I started to feel sick throughout the day and my energy has been starting to dwindle down. I've been doing my best to push myself and be as active as I can. It seems that when I'm busy doing something I don't feel as sick. I started a pregnancy workout video and we do a lot of hiking/walking around with geocaching for activity. I've come to rely on my afternoon nap. If I don't get it, I'll end up sleeping at 5pm and won't wake up until the morning -- not good! I limit it to no more than an hour and a half, which is just about right on most days.

School has been going quite well. My statistics exam a few weeks ago had be quite frazzled. I didn't study as much as I usually do, I didn't worry about it either, but I also didn't have the confidence during it. To my surprise I still scored an A, well a 92%, so I am very pleased with myself. :))

The kids have been well behaved. i think they like to get out and do things that we normally don't do. It has been nice for all of us, but at the same time, tiring. It is good to relax and unwind from all the go go go. Andrew has his first school play coming up on Thursday. I am so excited to see it!! I remember doing plays allll the time while I was in grade school, but it seems as though the school budgets just don't have room for them anymore. Sad!

I'll be sure to post again after tomorrow when we all find out. :) :)
