ICLW week!

Well - this is a good week for us to have ICLW, at least for me. If you are new here a quick history of us:

2005 - made the decision to go off birth control. Aaron was nervous, because we really wanted to wait 2 years after we got married to have children. I explained that they take about 9 months to grow - so we were right on track.
2006 - start seeing an RE
Oct 2006 - Have an ectopic
August 2007 - Switch REs because mine is a fat-phobe and an ass. Love the new one.
Oct 2007 - Start first IVF cycle
Nov 2007 - Pregnant! Low HCG and spotting
Dec 2007 - Miscarriage
March 2008 - second IVF cycle
Dec 2008 - Welcome Hulk into the world!!!

And the new kicker....
April 2009 - find out pregnant with fraternal twins. Naturally.

Besides the quick history, I'm happy to report that Hulk slept like a total champ last night. He went to bed at 7 - got up at 3 for a quick bottle, and then slept again until 6:30. What a rock star. I'm hoping that the sleep issues are resolved!

I'm starting to stress on an off about the u/s on Friday. I have this gut feeling that everything is fine... but I've really left myself wide open. I'm SO excited for this pregnancy and the idea of twins and the chaos that my life will be when I have 3 babies under the age of one.... I'm not sure how I will handle a disappointment. I have to keep on remembering, if it is meant to be, it's meant to be, right?

Wow! What a great story you have!

I am new- wandered on here from SQSPJ's ICLW list. Drawn in further by your header- it was the boxers that did it. I have two myself. :) They've been keeping me grounded through this whole process...

Congrats on your pregnancy! :)

Malloryn said...

Kristin said...

Wow...what a wonderful surprise. Hoping and praying that both twins are growing and thriving when you have your u/s.

I had three under two, so why not 3 under 1?

Jen said...

That is some awesome sleep! Way to go, buddy!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for Friday.

Congratulations! We just conceived our second the old fashioned way ourselves this month! This is just less that a year after my first, an IVF baby, was born. Wow, fraternal twins. I hope things continue to go well!

Happy ICLW and congrats on your pregnancy! You are going to be a very busy lady come December.

Love your blog title -- I've definitely got some BMHs of my own. ;)

Jill said...

3 under 1?! That makes my head spin. Twins are fantastic, though! Congrats!


Lucia said...

You probably will have three under one, because twins tend to come early, but it won't be for long. And then fter a few years of wondering if you'll ever sleep again, they'll start entertaining each other.

My baby is 13 today, so I'm in "how did it go by so fast?" mode. Enjoy it while they're little -- it seems to take forever, and it goes by so fast.

Meanwhile, I'm still so excited for you!

WiseGuy said...

Wow! That's what I first said when I read your lowdown...Good luck with your pregnancy!


Becky said...

Jennifer said...
