We've been released

Doctor O has released us to see our own OB-GYN. BIG step! Woowhooo!

We have 2 OB groups in town. One of which is run by "family". I made the call to the "family" doc yesterday morning with crossed fingers. I was just sure they would say they weren't accepting any new patients or that they didn't accept my insurance but I was wrong. We have our first official OB appointment next Wednesday at 1:15. On Halloween! Yippee!

I'm feeling ok. Well, actually I feel pretty crappy but I guess that's good. I haven't puked but I feel like I could at any minute all day long. I'm really tired and hungry all the time. The last couple of days I've been feeling some stretching and pulling down in the flower pot area and my lower back hurts a bit. I'm having a hard time sleeping. I think that's mostly because I'm up every 2 cotton pickin' hours to go pee! My 2 favorite pair of jeans are now IMPOSSIBLE to get into. I've already boxed them up and put them away. I've bought 2 new pair of khakis for work and 2 new jeans already. Holy moly! I think I'm gonna be HUGE fast. NOT complaining. But WOW! Mom called me a butterball in an email today. Thanks mom! I had M take a side view pic last night so we can start comparing. She says my boobs are definitely growing. Great! Just great! I'm on a potato kick right now. Day before yesterday I had fries, chips and augratin potatoes. YUM! And I'm also hooked on ranch dip with chips of course. ;o)

I think that's about it for now. We're just still trying to let all this sink in and looking forward to next Wednesday.

Anyone know of any good twins books I should check out?

I've heard that "When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads: Proven Guidelines for a Healthy Multiple Pregnancy" is a good one!

Glad to hear you and the tiny blossoms are doing well.

Eat girl. OMG I remember being SOOO hungry I felt like I couldn't eat enough. HOW fun.
Hope this pregnancy goes as smoothly and easily as the conception.
