Morning Krysta. I'm sorry you're feeling so poorly, but it does go with the territory, doesn't it? I hope you get to feeling better soon, though. I remember how miserable those days were.

My SIL spotted during her first pregnancy, and as it took her so long to get pregnant, she was frantic. But, she had a very healthy baby boy. I'm glad they did an ultrasound to make sure everything was fine.

Hi Krysta! What a precious ultrasound! Have you started a name list yet?

If it's any consolation, I spotted through my entire pregnancy with both of my little guys. They are both big and healthy!

Hoep you are feeling better soon! Cereal is really a good option when you are nauseous. Between the being dry, and full of vitamins, you can't go wrong. I lived off of dry frosted mini wheats for quite a while my first go-round!

Thanks for all the replies, and the "Happy Fathers Day's to Will

Deb, no we havent really started a name list yet. We have 2 boy names that we both kindof agree on, but thats it. Probably wont really start doing that till we know exactly how many names of each gender we need to come up with!

Dessa, yep we are at Ft Bragg. That is funny that you are from near South of the Border! That is the funniest little town! We drive through there alot.

Beth, I agree that these babies are in the Lords hands. I really feel that, too. That is why I try not to worry so much, but its still hard not to, you know?

Lynn, Nik and Sue, ((((HUGS)))

I hope I didnt miss anyone!

I've felt a bit better today, and was even able to eat 3 chicken tacos from Taco Bell. I figured if I felt well enough to eat them, I had better do it while I can! Yesterday was REALLY bad though. I was sick until 8pm...just in time to go to bed! Well, just 2 more days and I will be officially into my 3rd month! Crazy!

Wow, time is flying by already! How's the belly? Are you showing yet? You know we will want to see some pregnant belly pictures on here!

So glad you were feeling a little better today and able to eat. And able to check in with all of us. Did you say you were still working? I can't remember where you are working...all I remember was when you were taking pictures.

Take care of yourself. That is the most IMPORTANT thing right now. Rest, rest, rest. There will be plenty of time to get things done. Besides you will hit that high energy time in just a couple of months. Months four to six are the best!

Do you have your eyes on any maternity clothes yet? With the style of today most shirts look maternity already. You are going to be a very beautiful pregnant lady. Remember the days we just talked about you being pregnant? It's finally here....still adjusting with the idea....still giddy for you!!!

Praying for you to have sweet sleep tonight. Oh, and if you haven't already, buy a body pillow. They are the best while pregnant. I still sleep with mine!

LOL, Dessa! I have been looking into some different types of pillows. I was going to Babies R Us and check out the different Boppy pillows at some point. But I dont think I need them quite yet.

Beth, Will said the other day when I brought home the tacos (cause it was the second time Ive brought home tacos in the past 2-3 weeks...Don't ask me why, they just sound good to me, ok??) "So someday I can tell the kids that they are made of Taco Bell, huh?"

And yes, my tummy is actually starting to poke out a bit. Kindof early, but then again, I'm short, AND its twins! I will probably take a picture tonight, since I am officially 8 weeks today.

Krysta, you'll need it sooner than you think. I used the regular body pillow. I think I got it about the 4th month b/c I was getting big early so probably same for you and the twins. I got a regular pillow b/c the moms seem to like it better than the boppy pillow and it was way less expensive. I need to get a new one, but it's going on 5 months of use.....maybe try the regular one and move on up as your needs change?

My first child was made out of Chinese food and tuna. My second child of pizza. My third child of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch. The last child of Thai food and fruit.

I got my body pillow at Bed Bath & Beyond. The reason why they are so wonderful is because you have to sleep on your side your whole pregnancy. it just feels good to have cushion b/w your knees and something to hold.

I can't wait to see the picture. You'll have to take one every month. It will be neat to watch your angels grow.

Yes, what LCM said.

I can't wait to see your tummy, Krysta! Mine is growing on my sides and back. I'm getting fatter, not bigger! *OK, pouting over. No complaining! I'm pregnant! There's nothing to complain about!*

LOL at Will. Since you're still looking for names for the twins, may I suggest the following pairs:
Chip and Dip
Bean and Rice
Hot and Mild
Chile and Carne (Those could actually work for two girls!)

Isn't it frustrating how it can take months to get off 15 pound of fat or more, but about 20 minutes to gain it back? I was surpised that my first trimester I gained so much. I think that's the only advantage of puking, you'll keep some of it off, for a time being...LOL! But what a really great reason to gain weight. Actually the only great reason IMO.
LCM, I think my baby's ingredients are mexican food, watermelon, and hash browns. Oh, and orange sherbert

Well, its been a week. Sorry its taken me so long to update, but who knows? I've been sick, tired and busy

I had my first official OB appt today. It went great (so far.) Had another u/s and the twins actually look like BABIES instead of blobs! I could see everything...their huge noggins, their tiny little arms, and little legs curled up underneath their tiny little bums And I could see the umbilical cords attatched and of course, their little hearts just beating away! It was amazing and made me smile big Of course, because of how they are positioned, Dr still couldnt get a good pic of both of them, so in the pic I have, they STILL look like 2 blobs. Sigh. Oh well.

Also, Dr. gave me a new due date, since the babies are measuring 3 days sooner, of Jan 26th. although he said they will, of course, come early. He said he will be happy if I make it to 34 weeks! I just want them to wait until January, so they dont have to share a birthday with Christmas!

Anyway, Im just really excited to be working on 10 weeks! I dont go in for over a month (cause I will be on vacation when I was supposed to go in) and it seems like FOREVER! I will post the pic of the babes as soon as I scan it

Here's the newest picture of the twins. This time, instead of an alien face, I thought it looked like a HEART! See those little white spots in the middle of them? Those are their heartbeats!

And here is a quick belly shot I took yesterday. I'm going to take some better ones in a tight shirt so you can really see the difference as the weeks go by, but this is the only one I have right now. Its 9 weeks 4 days. (sorry, I tried to make it smaller, but for some reason, it won't work!)

Precious...just precious! I can't wait to watch that belly of yours get bigger and bigger. (Never thought I would say that here ) Thank you Krysta for sharing all of this with all of us!

How is your family doing being so far away from you? Are you going to see them any time soon? Have you thought about moving back? What's Will's status at this point? Will he be able to be with you the whole time or do they have plans for him? Sorry so many questions...

Look at that belly. Wow, how neat. I loved it when I started growing and there was evidence of a little one in me. Looking good, Krysta.

Krysta:
Congrats. Those babies look so healthy. The heart is beautiful. I can't believe you're already showing so much! You must just feel so amazingly maternal. It's such a good idea to take belly shots as you go. You're lucky that yours looks like a baby belly and not a beer belly! You're going to have such a fantastic set of memories for any baby book or scrapbook that you create for your little darlings.

Thanks for the info. about the placental development and reduction of morning sickness. I've been feeling better, too, and worrying about it. It's so great to have someone who is going through these things at the same time. Though, I admit, you're going through TWICE as much as I am! I appreciate your encouragement.

Hey everyone! Thanks for all your comments! To answer some questions and comments:

Beth, my family is doing fine..except of course, all they can talk about are the twins My mom is already making plans to be out here when they are born, especially if Will is deployed by then (yes, it is a possibility ) I will more than likely take the babies out to Denver once Will is deployed, but only for a month or two at a time. I won't stay there permanently like I did last time.

Deb, I got some palmers cocoa butter lotion, supposedly for stretch marks, but it STINKS! Literally! I've been putting it on every morning and night, but once its gone, Im going to look for something that smells better! Maybe I will have to take a trip to Babies R Us to see if they have anything there.

Thanks, Nik, for thinking it looks like a baby belly! LOL Considering I havent gained any weight yet, I know that it is all baby so far, which I can't beleive, cause according to everything I've read, I shouldn't be showing yet! When I wear a tight shirt, it is even more obvious! Maybe I should take one today, since I am exactly 10 weeks today! Glad you are feeling better, too

Well, like I said, I'm 10 weeks, and over the weekend, I probably DID put on a pound or two cause I ate a TON! It's really the first time Ive felt good enough to eat just about anything I want, so I really indulged! We ate out 3 times over the weekend, so not the healthiest, but now I have no food in the house so I am grocery shopping tomorrow to stock up on lots of healthy food.

Other than that, not too much to say except I am still extremely tired but feeling much better in the morning sickness category, so thats good.
