Thanksgiving 2008

This year we spent Thanksgiving in California. We stayed part of the week in the condo in Oceanside and then on Wednesday we traveled up to The Grand Californian hotel at the Disneyland resort.

This was a big family vacation with Dad and Mom, Jesse and I, Steven and his wife Liz, and Sara and her fiancé Max. Dad thought this was a good time to get the family together before there are grandchildren in the picture.

We had 4 nights and 5 days in the park. Dad rode his scooter around as usual and I ended up needing rent one as well. There was too much walking for a pregnant mom of twins. I didn't ride on many rides, but Jesse was all over the park with Linda and the rest of the able bodies. Linda stole the show riding on the most rides over the 5 days.

Uncle Jim came up for a visit on Friday and shared his wealth of Disneyland knowledge. The Haasis family is big on going to Disneyland and Jim is just like a kid in a candy store when he is there. We had a blast.

Spotting Scare

On Monday afternoon I started spotting and cramping. I was worried that something was wrong with the babies. I cramped throughout the night and into the next day. I called the Dr. in the morning and they took all day to get back to me. Finally they sent me in for an ultrasound to make sure the babies were okay.

We went to a very nice ultrasound place where they did an external and internal scan of the babies. The babies were just fine and they had heartbeats of 174 and 175. One baby was jumping and wiggling all over the screen. Apparently he or she was giving us a show.

The tech searched around my uterus and ovaries to see if there was anything that was causing the bleeding. They couldn't find anything at all, so I guess all is well. We got a 3D scan and a regular scan of the babies. They are so cute and growing big already.

Update Time

I haven't had the energy to update lately. Today is the beginning of the 9th week of pregnancy. I'm only a few weeks away from the 2nd trimester. I was feeling really well for a few days and I was starting to wonder how the babies were doing. Well ask and you shall receive. I threw up this whole weekend. I was nauseous the entire weekend and very weak. Jesse rented some movies and we stayed at home all weekend. I left the house for an hour to go have dinner with my parents, but sadly that meal came back up.

Today is a much better day. I hope I can keep down my dinner and my vitamins. It has been hard to take and keep the vitamins down and I know that the babies and I really need them.
We are looking forward to the Disneyland trip even though I can't ride on very many rides. I will hang out with dad and enjoy the park that way. Heck I may even rent my own scooter to get around because I know the walking will get to me after a while.

Once we get back from Disneyland we will have our next OB appointment and get another look at the twins. My belly is growing and I feel more comfortable in maternity pants or lose fitting garments. I don't have much left in my wardrobe that fits so I need to start buying some bigger items.

8 Weeks Pregnant

This pregnancy is moving along. I'm already 8 weeks pregnant and my body is slowly starting to change. Here is a picture of my baby belly.
