This week has been wonderful and not so wonderful, but mostly wonderful! I only say not so wonderful because I have been experiencing the most painful headaches I've ever had. For example, last night I woke up at 2 am with my head throbbing in intolerable pain. Headaches are common in pregnancy, but I've never experienced anything like this.
This past weekend was wonderful because we
finally told our families the news! Friday night we Skyped with Chis's
family in California, which was great to see their faces. It's been a
long time. They were so surprised we are having twins! Then Saturday was
my mom's birthday BBQ with my family. I was dying to finally tell her.
The best part was how we did it. Here's a video of her reaction!
Below is a picture of what was in the gifts. The first one was with the binky saying we're pregnant, and the second gift had the other binky, the embryo picture before transfer, and our most recent ultrasound picture.
It's been so enjoyable to finally share our happy news with family. All of this has been a long and difficult road, but being surrounded by so much happiness makes it all worth it. I feel so blessed!
