Well not only is today my first PIO free day in what seems like years...
But BabyCenter also tells me that today my babies are no longer embryos. We have entered the fetal stage. That's pretty huge.
And they are the size of kumquats.
I have noticed a cycle... after I have an appointment and a scan, I am on a bit of high. I feel really good about things - very optimistic about the pregnancy and about both babies. I even give my mother and husband permission to tell more people. But after several days my high starts to wear off and the nervousness will come back. I am so lucky that I get to see them via ultrasound scan every two weeks. It is so reassuring. I don't know how people with 'normal' pregnancies cope - how would I manage to not go insane with worry if I couldn't have that reassurance? When do you start really believing that this is going to work out? When do you stop checking the tp every day for blood?
And when do you start getting ready for the babies? I have looked online at a few baby sites with cribs and such. But at what point do you actually start considering buying this stuff? Is there a guideline for at how many weeks you should start getting the nursery ready?
