8 weeks.


Yesterday Leon and I had another ultrasound to see how the babies were doing. The doctor said that everything looked great! We got to hear the babies heart beats (which was just amazing!) and they are growing so much! So much my jeans already don't fit. :)

I have another appt in a couple of weeks with my regular doctor..! I'm so excited to get as many ultrasounds as possible so I can keep seeing the babies. We went yesterday to get a pregnancy journal... so I can document everything.

As far as symptoms go, I have nasuea pretty much all day. It's actually starting to go away. I haven't had any morning sickness. Thank goodness! My lower back always hurts. Even more after I lay down and get comfy. And I am always tired. It's okay to take as many naps as I want though and Leon doesn't mind- to much. :)

Besides that a funny little thing I have been telling people. I know I have to get used to double EVERYTHING but the other day I got the seasonal flu shot in my left arm and the H1N1 vaccine in my right arm... so two shots! Then yesterday I got two viles of blood drawn to check my hormone levels.

until next time.

Double the Blessings!!

Yep, that's right! Friday the 13th was an amazing day for us!!!! We had an ultrasound to check and see how everything was going. While we were in there the doctor told us that we were rewarded with TWO BABIES!! Leon said he felt it all along that we were having twins, but I said no. The chances were so slim- but hey- We are so BLESSED!! The doc says everything looks perfect so far! They are in different sacs and they have two placentas! We saw their heartbeats going. He said next week when we go back we can listen. :)

I am currently 7 weeks now. He said that with one baby I would be due July 4th but since there are two, chances are they will come early. So, June babies! After we left I called my dad and Leon called his mom. They were so excited! I didn't call my mom I just wanted to show her the pic. I wish I could've caught that moment on video. It was hilarious!

I will update again in a few days.

Love, Cheryl

It's positive.

FINALLY!!! The time has come...

We're pregnant!

I took THREE tests yesterday and they were all positive!!! (Thanks Kell, Amanda, Kim)

This morning we went to the doctor to get my blood drawn and they called back- it was positive as well.


The doctor estimates I'm between 5-6 weeks!

Thank you God for answering our prayers!
