16 Week Update

Things are wonderful here.  Anxiety is very low and I’m really enjoying being pregnant with TWINS this week.  We went to the doctor yesterday and had a stellar visit.  I passed my first one hour glucose test…way to go Pancreas!   The doctor was pleased with everything she saw and I was pleased to see those little Sparks swimming around on that little screen.  I love them!   I was able to make out the profile of Spark A this time but Spark B was face down but boy does he have a good looking spine!  I couldn’t make this out but the doctor said that Spark A was still kicking Spark B in the head.  I’m thinking there will be retribution somewhere down the line, so watch out, Spark A.   We have to go back in 2 weeks.  Funny thing, when I was making the next appointment, the receptionist told me which doc it would be with, then she stage whispered, “He’s not married.”  Made me laugh.  Dating a doc right now would be extremely efficient although I would drive him crazy with many many obsessive questions and worries.  Thanks for looking out for me, Receptionist.

I felt so good about the appointment that I treated the Sparks to their first toy:Babys' First Toys

Guess it’s not hard to figure out what gender I think the Sparks are.

I’ve been working with a program this summer which gives a free sack lunch to kids who normally get free lunch during the school year.  Every week I would work with different people but some showed up more than once.  I worked with a dear woman just a few times and today she came on my last day with a gift for the Sparks.  This just made me smile and smile.  I believe it is their first gift:
First Gift

In other news, school starts next week and although I’m a little worried about the full steam ahead schedule, I’m ready for a more regular routine.  Stretch is starting her sophomore year and has her driver’s permit.  So far when I’ve driven with her she’s driven like a 90 year old so I’m not too worried about that.  I think she’s pretty excited about the twins coming.  Today she asked me about morning sickness and if she could help with a shower.

I’ve begun to clean out the back room and have friends on stand by to paint it when I’m ready.  Have I mentioned my home is teeny tiny?   I will be moving to the little bedroom and giving them the “big” one or should I say bigger one.  I think it’s going to be a very busy fall.

I almost forgot to mention that I turned 42 on Saturday.  42!!  We celebrated by going to our local ice cream stand.  I think “42 and Pregnant with Twins!” would be a great name for a reality show.  Although right now there would be little to film except me “resting my eyes” in the afternoons.

    Since Luca was born I have not had the time or much of a desire to follow blogs the way I used to (He turned two yesterday, by the way).Your blog is the only one that I have followed. For many reasons I have felt a connection with you for several years, and I have often wished that you and I lived closer to each other because I would love to share this experience with you, that I feel is unique in so many ways, because of our age, our weight, using donor eggs, carrying twins, and loss. And joy! Oh joy!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot wait to see you become a mother. I think you will be such a good one. I am so glad you have your family close by to help. All my blessings, and I am waiting to hear about every detail that you wish to share. I am always open to furthur contact if you wish to email me.
