Some Bittersweet News ...

So, it's been a while again. Mostly because I'm tired, sick, and just don't have all that much to say. Until today.

So, we had a Drs appt today. Unfortunately, one of the trips is no longer with us. There was no heartbeat. The baby was measuring about a week behind, so whatever happened, happened sometime last week. Of course, my sister is sad, but the good news is that the other two are doing great ... moving like mad, and measuring right on schedule, with great strong heartbeats.

On other exciting baby front news, I didn't mention that we had a CVS done. Due to my sister's age, we decided to do genetic testing. We also got those results today. Both babies are wonderful and healthy. Oh, and a boy and girl!!!

Yes, one of each, and they are VERY excited.

So, that's the update. I'm excited for this weekend. My parents are taking the kids, and DH and I are planning on relaxing and taking it easy.

I'll update soon, I promise!

So sorry about the loss of one of the trips. Well, twins- that's familiar territory for you, huh? And a boy and a girl- how perfect! Tell your sister welcome to the boy/girl twins club from me. Sorry to hear that you're still tired, but I'm glad you're taking some time for yourself as you grow those babies!

Oh, I'm so sorry. I know that there is good news, too, but how sad to have lost one of the babies. You're doing such a good job! Very fun about the boy and girl, though!

The morning sickness is still going strong? When did it stop with your twins' pregnancy? Hope you feel better soon.
