    How far along are you?  8 weeks, 6 days

    How are you feeling? Tired. exhausted actually lol. but excited and happy. Waking up in the night to pee and hungry every couple hours. Gone up a bra size already too. crazy.

    Any baby news (tests results/scans/upcoming appointments?) Definitely two healthy heartbeats 151, 149, bpm.  Fraturnal twins, each with their own placenta.  another US in a few weeks.

    Rants/Raves/Questions: We were so excited to tell our DS and we wanted to make it special for him so we did a whole thing where we gave him a shirt that said big brother, etc. We wanted him to know so that he didn't over hear it and find out a different way. BUT, now he's almost spilling the beans to everyone. He told a co-worker of mine when we ran into her at baseball practice and he almost told another co-worker yesterday when we ran into them too. So it looks like we're probably going to tell our families a little earlier than anticipated since he's not going to keep it bottled for long LOL.

    GTKY: my go to foods at the moment are Granny Smith apples and cheese and crackers!

    Hey there! That's really good to hear @liss_37, glad your two LO are doing fantastic! yay!

    How far along are you?  5 weeks

    How are you feeling? some moodiness at times, boobs a little bigger, and some fatigue. Wish my symptoms were a little more intense to ease my worries  

    Any baby news (tests results/scans/upcoming appointments?) my first OB appointment is 2 full weeks from now... this will be a very loooong 2 weeks. 

    Rants/Raves/Questions: Only in pregnancy would feeling miserable make me so happy, lol, this lack of major symptoms has me so nervous. Maybe b/c I checked out my birth month board, and the ladies on there wrote about such severe symptoms, but they also could be a couple weeks ahead of me. Trying to relax but difficult sometimes.

    GTKY: I LOVE real vanilla bean ice cream with some whipped cream, makes any bad day better!

    Thanks @cornchipLAfor easing some nerves :) Dreamt last night I had MS - seriously?..  when I was TTC I would have dreams about getting a BFP, now I'm pg and dreaming about symptoms. My subconscious needs a vacay

  • I hear you guys. I wish my symptoms were stronger too, which I know in my mind is totally ridiculous. but I just feel like if I felt crappier I wouldn't constantly have the first trimester fear

  • I get it about wishing for m/s. I don't have it either and didn't with DD and only off and on with DS, but I still weirdly feel like having more symptoms would keep me more sane until our first u/s.
