12 weeks 6 days

Things are still going well here in waiting land. Life is busy, working full time, we went to Cleveland and saw Nickleback in concert and went the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this past weekend.
DH and I have been helping in junior church (4-6 year olds) each week at church. We average 25-30 children a week. It's a lot of fun but it wears me out, especially in my current condition. Today, the children's pastor called and left a message that said that the lead teacher of the class has decided she needs to step down so would we be interested in teaching. I just don't know if I should tke on that kind of committment right now. What if I end up on bedrest in the next couple of months? What should I do?

Long Time, no post

Well, a lot has happened in the past year. In February, we came back up on the list for donated embryos. Choosing embryos was complicated -- finding donors that we were happy with, then someone else had chosen them before us. So, then we had to choose again. But we found embryos we were happy with. On June 8th we transferred two high grade embryos. On June 13, 5dp5dt we a had a positive home pregnancy test. At 7dp5dt, our beta was 96. Two days later, it was 194. Our 5 week u/s showed two gestational and two yolk sacs! At 7 weeks, we saw two hearteats! I am currently 11 weeks 4 days pregant with fraternal twins.
The past couple of months have been such a whirl wind. We can't believe this is finally happening for us! God has blessed us in so many ways. Tommy will be starting junior high in a couple of weeks and now we have two more on the way.
I didn't show until 7 months with Tommy. I'm kind of disappointed because I am still not showing at all. I thought since this was the second pregnancy and that there were two (plus I'm heavier now)that you would be able to tell by now.
