My pregnancy started off with hypermesis gravidarum (a fancy word for throwing up everything). Once that calmed down a bit, I began to experience dizzy and fainting spells. So the doctor ordered me to as much rest as possible. This made it very difficult for me to be able to fly back to California for a very gracious baby shower that my family was planning for me. But the health of the babies and myself forced me to stay in good ole Texas! Now my "joy" is trying to ward off preeclampsia, which is a condition in which I have an elevated blood pressure, experience swelling and a few other unmentionable symptoms. I go in for lab testing in a few days to make sure that everything is under control.
Needless to say, pregnancy has not been rainbows and butterflies for me, but we are so excited about our growing family! Here are a few pics to show how well our babies are growing!
