I Did It After All

So, I decided to post the photos of the blobs anyway. After staring at them for awhile I did finally notice the difference. If you visit my first ultrasound post, it was taken at the same strength, so the babies are a lot bigger. So is my gut, but I don't think it's from the growing babies. Yesterday for lunch I ate an egg salad sandwich. Then another egg salad sandwich. Then a piece of cheesecake. Then another piece of cheesecake. Then two fun sized halloween candies. That was just my lunch. Someone commented on my "baby belly." I smiled, but wanted to say, it's called a fat ass!! It's not like a hard belly from babies growing, you could get a finger lost in there. We will take a 2 month belly picture tomorrow and I might post it depending on how embarassed I am.

The first photo is Twin B. Twin B is the blob getting smashed on the bottom. Twin B is definitely a sweet little boy. Twin A is obviously a girl who got a lot of genes from mama, a pushy bitch who isn't even about to let the little guy have a chance at the spot light. Aww, what a cutie!

Here is Twin A, in all her glory. You may notice that she is one day ahead of Twin B and is .4 mm bigger. That big black thing up top to the left is my bladder. As I mentioned before, I almost had to pee all over the expensive ultrasound equipment.

I feel good and confident today. I only had heartburn and a few headaches and a little wooziness here and there, but nothing crazy. I really would love to work out and didn't bleed today. So if the bleeding stays away for two straight weeks, I will get to begin working out again and I also hope to go to yoga on Sundays. We'll see how it goes.
I will have to have more ultrasounds than normal due to twins. I have a call in to my insurance company, but I have spoken with someone else with our insurance who had twins and they should be covering everyting. So I have a little love letter for them.
Dear Insurance Company (I will not name names, although I would really like to),
For the last two and a half years, I have suffered from infertility. It was deeply devastating to learn at 23 my body wasn't going to cooperate in babymaking. So I jumped on board willing to do anything I had to do. To add insult to injury, you didn't help out at all. My total, after my last appointment where I found out you didn't cover any blood tests because you don't recognize my RE's lab, is near to $23,000.00.
Now I am so joyously pregnant with twins. I can't tell you how satisfying it is to realize that is going to cost YOU a lot of money. This is exactly what you deserve for being stingy all these years.
Revenge is the best medicine. From my empty wallet to yours, THIS IS WHAT YOU GET JERKS!!!! I'll milk you for every penny, and enjoy every minute.
P.S. I love you little monkeys. Please stay snuggled up in your well fed womb for the next 6 months or so!!


  1. They are so cute Ash!!! I'm so happy!! Can't wait to see your baby pudge!! I'm sure its all baby even if it isnt hard yet. Remember there are 2 BABIES IN THERE!!!! lol! Wish I could rub ur belly!! *rub*

  2. Thanks for posting the monkey's pictures :) I giggled at your note to insurance - while I have been very lucky to have decent insurance through this, I am still getting bills that I feel I've paid about 34 times!! I feel, maybe to a lesser degree!, your pain! :) Hopefully the bleeding is at bay and you can start yoga soon! :) Go babies go! :) ~Beckie from tCC!

  3. Haha, I think that insurance note should be a form letter that we can all send out...

  4. Happy babies!!!

    Love the insurance letter. I am going to hire you to write my love letter to my company.


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
