It's a Brand New Week!

Last week, my feet finally started feeling better after the medicine from the dermatologist (he is my new best friend)! What a blessing it is to walk and sleep at night! Abby and Paul did not fair so well as a few nights ago Abby started a new family trend by waking up in the middle of the night in a pool of vomit. I got her cleaned up and sent her into the bedroom to clean up the bed and guess what? She throws up all over Paul so then we had TWO sets of bedding to change and wash in the middle of the night! Now it's been a few days and Paul is still trying to shake the bug (Abby was better after a day). Knock on wood, I am the one who is supposed to be throwing up all over the place and I don't feel nauseous at all (exept a tiny bit in the morning when I'm famished from not eating every 2 hours or so... but NOTHING bad at all). All I do is eat, Eat, EAT and I LOVE IT! I am supposed to consume 600-1000 extra calories per day to grow the babies and create a fat store for when I don't have enough to give them at the end. My wonderful friend Jenny invited us over for dinner last night and cooked the best pork tenderloin and I could not get enough (should I admit I had 2 helpings of dessert as well?). Maybe the fact that I cannot fit into my regular pants any more has less to do with pregnancy and more to do with my new "diet". Let's not mention why the button up shirts had to go as well. Officially, we did the wardrobe turnover yesterday... and I'm only SEVEN WEEKS! They say you measure 4-6 weeks ahead with twins... I'm getting a bit worried. And yes, that is a Christmas shower curtain in the background only I like to think of it as a "winter" shower curtain after December. In April, well... it IS snowing today quite hard so I guess it's decor to match the day's weather. Doesn't everyone do that?

You forgot to mention there was bacon on the pork tenderloin, my carnivorous friend.

I can't believe how big your books are. I feel like such a pervert, but I can't not look at them.

I meant boobs, not books.

So were you allergic to HCG? Glad to hear your feet are better, sorry your family is sick. Good job on weighing a normal weight - even though it takes three of you to do it. :)

CONGRATS!! What a surprise! Twins! I can't believe you are only 7 weeks... looking great! Enjoy the food! I am enjoying the food here in South Africa, and I don't have your excuse.
