Thanks to everyone who was so encouraging about my last post. I got so many calls and emails from friends and family wanting to help, and the comments were very appreciated. One of my friends reminded me that just because I experienced infertility and losses does not mean I cannot complain when I am feeling tired or in pain, because pregnancy is wonderful and AMAZING but sometimes tough.
Here is the large-and-in-charge belly picture for 15 weeks! I cannot believe we are already here! Now we need the babies to stay inside for another 20 or so, and they will be great. The strangest thing happened with my pregnancy with A, and is already happening now. From right under my bra line to my mid-abdomen, I am completely numb. It sometimes tingles like a foot that is asleep, but mostly I cannot feel anything! Apparently it is the uterus pushing on nerves, but feels so strange. Amazing how much earlier everything is happening. Last night I dreamed that I had sextuplets, and they just missed three of them this whole time. I must be feeling big for a crazy dream like that!
I have literally been counting the days (and today, the hours) until the BEST show on television, aside from "Mad Men" comes back on. Tonight, my friends, is the premiere of "True Blood," a sexy, bloody, funny and intelligent show about a culture where vampires are "out of the closet" and living among us humans. If you haven't seen it and get HBO, I highly recommend it. You can download the first season on iTunes, too.
Doctor's appointment tomorrow... will report!
