    Bring it on girls. I feel like I am so in over my head right now. It will get better, I know.

    It's not like I didn't know this was a possibility. I put back two embryos after all. However, my betas were so low and there was only one tiny spot on my 5 week ultrasound. Not to mention, I am old and my eggs are probably crusty by now. I was convinced there was just one in there.  Until my 7 week ultrasound when there were very clearly two sacs and two heartbeats. 

    I'll be alright. I can do this! It's not like I know any better!

    You'll be great! I didn't know any better either and she's made it all the way to 8 months.  1 word for you... epidural!!!

    Body pillows will become your best friends, hummus and pretzels and vanilla ice cream are good non-nausea foods, and if you have a favorite pair of shoes DO NOT wear them for the next 9 months.  Mine got so stretched out that when I put them on after the baby was born they fell off and they are unfixable, very depressing.

    Do your kegels ALL THE TIME!  I wasn't as vigilant as I should've been, and I spent the first two months postpartum learning how to hold my pee again.  Horribly embarrassing.  I don't know if the kegels will help, but they can't hurt.
