The Frankenbaby Chronicles

Two girls, three cats, some frozen sperm, a doctor's office, and a big dream.

Oops, it's been a while.

Well, I guess time flies when you're having fun. Or something like that. I've been really lax in writing here and have been doing most of the blahblahblah in my other blog.

We'll be 9 weeks tomorrow, though I don't know how the beans are doing because I haven't been to the doctor or anything since I was 7 1/2 weeks when I had a bleeding episode. They told me I had a subchorionic hematoma (blood between the uterus and placenta) and that it would go away on its own. I had gushes of red blood for two days. Two very scary days. During that time, we also passed papers and closed on our new house in our new town. Yay!

I haven't had any bleeding since, just occasional brown spotting that has mostly subsided, so I am hoping the worst is over. I haven't had any morning sickness to speak of, just the occasional feeling of 'yuck' in the back of my throat, so of course I am worried that I'm not /really/ pregnant or something. When we had our last u/s after the bleeding, the beans' heartbeats were 131 and 143, so I guess things are still good in there. Still, a lot can change in two weeks!

I am scheduled to meet one of the midwives in my practice on Dec. 12. I called them yesterday to let them know that we're expecting twins and to see if she wanted me to do anything differently or see me sooner, and she called in a prescription for an extra mg/day of folic acid. Yay, more pills! That's 4 metformin, 1 prenatal, and 1 folic. I hope she doesn't give me crap about the metformin because I want to take it as long as I can.

We moved into our new home on Saturday and it has been a fiasco like moving usually is. Now I am housebound while I wait for utility installers, delivery people, etc. etc. Good times! At least I can lay around and nap a lot... except that I'm supposed to be looking for a job.
