20 weeks (almost 21) and moving along

Tomorrow I will be 21 weeks preggers. We had our 20 wk u/s where the baby was not so cooperative. The tech had a hard time getting measurements cause the baby was so wiggly.

We also decided to fore go finding out the we are Team Green! I am excited! We are also not sharing the baby names either..I know we are mean and we suck. But this is fun for us! It is also the last pregnancy, so I am trying to have as much fun and enjoy as much as possible. Here is the one picture of our little Baby M (nicknamed by my friend Kate):

This is what happens in the playroom when you leave the girls alone for like 5 minutes...they are the twinadoes for sure! And they are saying "cheese" while I take the picture, sweetie pies!

This is Kristin being silly one morning on my way to work:

This is Lara this weekend with her cupcake at their BF's birthday party, she loves her sweets:

Oh guess what! Bobby has FINALLY relented...I get to be a SAHM next school year! YAY! I have to take in some kids and do a little daycare as we have to have some money coming in or we will be destitute. But I get to be AT home with MY kids! ROCK ON!!! Now to make it through this school year! I can do it. I can do it. I think I can. I think I can!

Oh and my advisor effed up and I am currently really taking my LAST class for my master's. However to graduate I still have 2 big tests to take, the next time they offer one is on my due date in June, so I will be missing that one. Hopefully I can take it in Oct so I can graduate in May 2013....ughh!

A little update....

From my family to yours, I hope you had a Happy Holiday Season, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hoping 2012 brings you many blessings!

The girls were fun and just keep growing leaps and bounds. I love it! Though I want to hit "pause". Except for the tantrums..whew!

So on to some pictures:

Kristin in her fairy wings, princess crown and dress up skirt at my mom's on Christmas. (4 kids and the place was a wreck)

This is Lara just Tuesday night being silly in her highchair when it was time for bed and she crawled in there, fastened herself and said "I stuck Mommy, no night night"

And me. 16 weeks. Doing pretty good. Can't complain (yet). And big u/s is scheduled on Feb 8, where we may or may not find out the sex.

Happy kid, Baby New Year, and all things good!

I am busy, busy, busy...who's not? I know. And HELLO..tis the Season to be Merry!

Finishing this last class for my master's. Growing a fetus. Trying to run a household. Trying not to lose my job... or at least not lose my schmidt at the job...and well I try not to lose it at home too. You know the norms of being a mom.

I love Christmas. I love decorating! I love the sights and the sounds and the lights! Oh the lights! I love love love Christmas. Oh I also get a little mini vacay from the job, and who doesn't love that? Part of my perks of being a teacher, since the rest of it isn't much fun or worth the pay.

The girls are doing awesome and are just so cool it is amazing! So Thanksgiving was awesome and as parents we had a little 1:1 time with each kid. That was cool and after the 100 question of "where Ra-ra go?" and "where Ti-ti at?", I think they too enjoyed some 1:1 attention.

This was Lara's time with Daddy:

Happy kid!

Kristin: although this is not from her 1:1 time, it was too cute not to share. My Little Baby New Year (with my niece)

And here is the most recent pic of baby #3...all is well and doing great. Even waved Hi there!

10 wks and 2 days. Moving right along.

In the midst of badness there was goodness

I missed Halloween. Thanks to a parent for sending their sick and puking child to school on that Friday, I woke up in the middle of the night Sunday/Monday thinking I was in the throes of hell aka as morning sickness...until, well I will save you the details, just know it wasn't pretty and then OMG I was about to keel over. I called Dr M's office who stated I should probably go to the ER and get fluids.

8 hours later and a couple bags of fluids they asked if I wanted an u/s..well yes since we are here and my co-pay for an ER visit is outrageous, I might as well tack on something worth coming in here since I am missing seeing the girls in their costumes and saying "ick or tweet"


We have a heartbeat! 122 bpm which for 5wks 6 days (which I was at the time) was "normal"! I heart "normal"!

Had an appt 2 days later with Dr M and there was still a little flickering heart in there! He asked so you want to come back in 2 weeks or 4? What do you think? See ya in 2 weeks! Which was really last week, so next week we go back and I will be 8w1d.

Other than that, busy busy busy. Loving on the girls and trying to survive this last class for my master's.

Sorry no pics of the girls..I haven't uploaded and Bobby really didn't take many Halloween night cause he was overloaded and all, you know with the 2 kids and taking them trick or treating, cause being with 2 kids by yourself is hard! Just sayin'!

Still holding my breath

That's the newest addition to our family whose arrival date is June 26, 2012 (which is my dad's birthday, he would have loved to seen all his grandkids). We had a good appt with Dr M. My second beta was 808. WOW! And when he did the u/s everything was "good and normal"!

Still seems surreal. We are still keeping it a secret for awhile longer. Go back in 2 weeks for another u/s to see a heartbeat...until then I can worry and analyze everything and worry some more.

Bobby asked Kristin do you want a baby brother or baby sister? She said a sister. That seems so far away! Wow, I am pregnant!

Holding my breath on things....

So still! But I am trying to find a way out of here! I am hoping I got something up my sleeve so I can call it quits to teaching for at least 2 years until the girls are in school. We shall see.

I LOVE fall! It is college football season and the leaves are starting to change! I love it!

I love my girls and being with them just rocks. It is hard to imagine my life without them and boy I must have been bored before them! The girls are just awesome in every way and I can hardly believe that Bobby and I created them!

Here's some pics of them picking out their pumpkins:

Lara saying "cheese"

Kristin on top of her pumpkin

Oh and here's something else:

Shocked that we got this far. Had a Beta done on Friday at 12 dpo and it was 188. I went yesterday for one so waiting on that result. And Dr M wanted to see us when the nurse told him Friday. Probably cause he missed seeing Bobby. So I will see what he says today. Prayers for healthy please! Oh and we are keeping it on the downlow right now.

Sad September

Our Mommy went back to work and that sucks! We are mad and we don't like it!

So September has started and with that it means, Mommy is back to work. I did not go easily, I went kicking and screaming. Then Irene came and though I didn't have power for days, I enjoyed having a few more days with the girls- power or no power. Isn't it pathetic, I enjoyed a hurricane cause I got to be with my kids? Sad. Now I am eyeing the tropics, just kidding...kinda. No really we were lucky in that we had minimal damage and we are all safe. It was a pain to not have power for over 4 days with 2 kids, but a generator is nice thing to have. Our area still has alot of damage.

A friend coined the term "Sad Sundays", you know the afternoon on Sundays when you realize that Monday is right around the corner and you get all glassy eyed. That's how I feel about September...and every Sunday of course but only during the school year.

Here's some of the girls 2 year portraits:

My precious Kristin

Chillin' Kristin

My loving Lara

Laughing girl

In other news, last month BFN, but I do believe I Oed on my own. I had my second 28 day cycle but with some major monitor mix up we missed prime time per se.

However, I am currently 1dpo. And I managed to get in some good BD in. So now we wait. Just hoping for whatever God has in store for us. Starting to accept that our family is probably complete. Which that's ok. But #3 would be awesome too! Time will tell!
