Yes we have 2 babies!!  We were very surprised when we saw the ultrasound the other day.  They both look great and have strong heartbeats.  I think we are still both in shock.  They are due the day after my birthday...June 20th.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Holy Betas, Batman!!!

My beloved pregnant one has been eating enough for three or four... and I'm thinking is there a reason for that?  She had her third beta test today which came back at 6571.  Today is day 22. Check out the average numbers.  The numbers are looking scary- median numbers for triplets aren't even that high... but we hear betas can vary greatly (I'm still praying for one single healthy baby)  Tonight she is having "night sickness" and needs assistance.  She wants a trash can by the bed, Tums, and "No moving around!"
 I had Hayden take a picture of her belly tonight. It looks like a checkerboard.  Estrogen patches leave a stubborn bandaid type of residue in their rectangular shape.  Carey lines them up in rows :) We have a ritualistic type of cleaning every couple of days.  I "get" to use the cotton balls and Neutrogena oil on her while she relaxes on the bed. She likes it when I am in service to her- kind of like when you get a pedicure and the little asian ladies rub your feet and legs when they are through... she eats that stuff up.  ( and I received a "Hell no!" when asking to post the belly pic ;)

If I knew how to post music...

The song would be "I'm So Excited" by the Pointer Sisters... laughing...I just watched the video for the first time on YouTube. If you click the title of this post, you can see it! WOWSA! hahaha
Carey has the blood test today to confirm the pregnancy(ies). I already know she's pregnant. I think she is in disbelief, so she wont TRULY come to terms with it until the blood test comes back positive. I can't get this song out of my head.
So, I expect she will hear from the nurse this afternoon. I'm just so excited for her! For us!
We went to the movies the other night. She had her feet propped up on the seats in front of us at the $2 theater. We are the theater's biggest customers- and there aren't alot of people there on the it's like our own little slice of heaven :) . We bring a blanket and our own candy. Carey got nachos with cheese and jalepenos...she never ends up eating more than 2 of the jalepenos...I don't know why she gets them, really, but it's kind of cute. So, she turns to me and says, "I think this is the happiest I have ever been in my life." It makes me feel good to know she is where she wants to be.
About the unfinished post: Carey was supposed to tell you how they surprised her with a catheter, but she was a busy bee last week!
She has had a couple of bouts of morning sickness already, poor baby...she stopped to pick up some Tums this morning on the way to school. I was eating those like freakin tictacs when I was pregnant! I am so anxious for her to call or message me!!!

2 Embryos Transferred!

On Friday we had "Puppy and Kitty" tranferred to Carey's estrogen laden womb...Carey suggested we name them, but I didn't want to assign gender or get too attached. So puppy and kitty it is. The doctor and embryologist said the embryos were "beauuuuutiful."- Really. She said it that way- which made us beam (as if we had something to do with it). The doctor said you couldn't ask for it to be better, they were already hatching out of the zona. So,Carey took a valium on the way to the clinic and was feeling pretty good when we arrived. She looked like a cartoon character with her droopy eyelids, but she wasn't really animated- chillin like a villan :0) So I decided to do a photo shoot, which REALLY annoyed her. She always gets huffy when I take pictures in unusual places. I, personally, think it's cool to be able to capture a moment in time. This was a moment I wanted us to remember. The valium took a little of the fight out of her, but 10 pictures of eye rolling, 5 hateful looks,3 of us and 5 blog worthy ones later, she had enough. Shortly thereafter, her valium nearly metabolized, the doctor came in to take her back. She gave me a kiss and a hug. They said it would be about 15 minutes. About 5-10 minutes later she was being rolled back in. Both of us wondered why she needed a valium on the way to the office, but as our eyes met, I knew there was probably a good reason for it. She gave me the wide eyed look we give one another when we are trying to telepathically communicate- let the other one know something without saying it... They closed the curtain and I came to the bedside in a whisper asking "what happened in there?" be continued...
