Seven Quick Takes: Where have I been?

— 1 —

I consciously decided to take Holy Week off from blogging this year. It would be good for me. I had had a whirlwind Lent and I didn’t really feel prepared for the holiness of the Triduum liturgies and Easter, so I wanted to unplug for a little while. I didn’t realize that I would unplug for so long!

Coincidentally, something was going on inside my body that I wanted to watch as well. See, Good Friday was to be P+18. For those of you who don’t do NFP, that means I would be welllll past ovulation. Like, most people would take a pregnancy test around P+12. Because of the medications I was taking, my doctor asked me to wait until P+17 to test, but I had had a few heatbreaks on P+17, so I decided sometime last summer that I would wait until P+18. But, P+18 was Good Friday, and since the doctor’s office might not be open, Brett asked me to test on Holy Thursday.

So I did.

And what a whirlwind it’s been since then! I had an ultrasound at 9 weeks on April 29, and we saw this.

The tech said "Oh, you have two."

For those of you who aren’t skilled at looking at ultrasound photos… that’s right. There are TWO BABIES in there!

I had about eight weeks of exhaustion and intense nausea (no vomiting, thank you very much). I’m due December 3. And now I’m just exhausted and eating like a horse, and I look something like this.

By the way, at the end of last month, we took a long road trip out west for a friend’s ordination. Congratulations, Father Chris! We also went to the Grand Canyon.

  1. I am so happy for you! Double happy for you!

    I was ravenous most of my pregnancy and eating a ton of protein (100 g daily) made a big difference.
