14 weeks

I want to be mindful of writing down a few things as I am pregnant with these two little peanuts.

So at 14 weeks:

1.) Pregnancy Brain is in full effect. Twice this past week I have used shampoo to wash my face in the shower, knowing full well it wasn't my face soap as I did it. What's even worse is that I caught myself about to do it again this morning. I can't remember a thing! I've taken to writing everything down right when someone tells me so I hopefully don't forget.

2.) I have felt a few movements, especially from whichever one is on the left. Last week, I was standing outside during car duty, and the little one on the right did a somersault. Later that night, I was lying down in bed and felt the one on the left move. It moved a few more times the next day. I'm not sure if it's just because I recognize what that feeling is now or if it's because there are two of them, but I don't remember feeling Emerson this early on. 

3.) I won't be giving up the anti-nausea meds any time soon. Thursday night, it completely slipped my mind to take them, and I felt fine all day Friday. I decided to not take them that night and see how I felt on Saturday. I really do hate taking any kind of medicine while I'm pregnant because you just never know. After HOURS of being queasy on Saturday I realized I will take those suckers as long as I can!  One of my very sweet, very thoughtful friends brought me this to try to help:

There are no words. It's sweet. It's spicy??? It tastes like perfume. It's weird! I so, so, so appreciate her thoughtfulness though!

4.) Speaking of thoughtful, check out what my secret pal at work got me:

That's what I'm talking about! I came back from lunch and had this sitting on my desk. BEST. GIFT. EVER.

5.) It looks like we may find out the genders next week!! I tentatively have an appointment next Wednesday at an ultrasound boutique place. I'm a little bit nervous about it, but a whole lot excited. Maybe this is the kick in the pants we need to get going on their room and stuff.

We shall see.

Holy moley. We're having TWINS.
