15 wks…and finally an update

April 20, 2008 2 comments

Ok…so things have been kind of crazy around here…still not feeling well all the time…we’re tired…and anyone who’s gone through this probably knows what we’re talking about.

Well…we had a doctor’s appointment this past Thursday, and it was short. Very short. We walked in…heard the heartbeat…which sounds like this: whah whah whah whah…the doc said things were fine and sent us on our way. Oh…and we’ll see him in another month…where we’ll be close to confirming the sex of the child and if there is more than one.

Also…we’ve started picking up some things for ??????’s room. We’ve gone with fairly neutral colors…green’s and blue’s of different shades…and turtles! Awww…take a look…it’s the “Turtle Bay Collection” from CoCaLo.

Yesterday we ran out to Grand Rapids to “U.S.A. Baby” because they had been advertising some huge sale…well first off…not a lot of huge savings there. Also…we picked up the “Turtle Bay Collection” bedding at a place near us, “Sweet Dreams Baby Boutique”…it’s next to “Mom & Baby Again” on Riley and US-31…well had we picked it up at “U.S.A. Baby”, we would have had to spend about $50 more…that should give some insight to their “Sale Pricing”. However…we did find a matching switch plate for ?????’s room:

Other than that…Annie still feels ill in the morning…fine at school…and tired when she gets home. It just kind of stinks that the only time we see each other is when she’s sick & tired. Oh well. Before we close out…here’s a picture of Annie at 15wks…not much change since last time…but according to the heartbeat…it’s really in there.

Week 13ish…

April 8, 2008 1 comment

Hey there all you friends and family!

Sorry about the skipping a week, it kind of got lost in the shuffle. Well here’s an update for you. First…here’s what Annie’s tummy looks like as of April 7th…

\"Hi there lil\' bump!\"

Hello bump!

Needless to say…something is definitely growing in there. Now…as we look at this picture is there anyone else that notices something strange? Yes…you there in the back with your hand raise…is that Diane? Go ahead…uh huh…yep you’re right…Annie is in fact wearing a pair of jeans!

Those of you who know Annie know that she’s always a little more comfortable in a pair of p.j. pants or sweats. This fact is even more so as her tummy continues to grow.

Also…we all need to take from this what we will but, I (Jeremy), experienced a couple of interesting scenarios this weekend, that could possibly be foreshadowing. Here’s what went down…

I went to the grocery store late Saturday night for a microwave popcorn run, when I run into an old acquaintance from my time at the video store. Out of our conversation, it turns out that he and his wife are expecting, plan to deliver in the same hospital as Annie and I, and get this…they’re due date, given to them by the doctor, is the same as ours! October 15th!

Now you might be asking, where’s the foreshadow-ish part? Well…they’re expecting twins! Then on Sunday morning, I come downstairs to find Annie on the couch watching television…watching “Full House”…what episode is it? Only the one where Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky find out that they’re having twins!

\"The future of Annie & Jeremy?\"

Those of you that may not know me or my family…twins aren’t completely uncommon…in fact, my sisters are twins, my grandma and great aunt are twins, and if memory serves correct, there is another one beyond that! Okay…okay…okay…I might be reading to much into it, it’s just coincidence right?

I know that this post is already quite long, but here’s the last thing…we’ve got another doctor’s appointment coming up on April 17th, so hopefully we’ll be able to hear the heartbeat and more! Look for an update after that!

Thanks for checking in…we’ll talk to you next time!
