The First Trimester Remembered

Randi has passed a major milestone in reaching the twelve week mark. No more concerns of postponing hair color treatments or flu shots. Everything has been going well. We still will not be able to get another glimpse of Pooh and Tigger for another couple weeks, but all signs are positive. There is also the outside possibility of determining the sex of the babies at the next ultrasound, but we would more likely see lassos than tutus.
Randi's appetite is erratic, either nothing sounds good except a long nap or she's eating anything she can every couple hours, but she is pushing through. We have had no visual signs of issues with the blood clot. So here is a "best of " for the first trimester:

1. Randi taking 5 home pregnancy tests to make sure they were accurate.
2. Learning of twins via teleconference from the exam table to the construction site.
3. On said teleconference, making sure Suzy took a couple extra minutes to make sure there were only two babies and no more.
4. Sharing the news with our families, and trying to make it a surprise with only a few minor hiccups.
5. The look on Oma's, Randi's grandmother, face upon hearing of twins and saying, "NO, you are lying!"
6. Hormones, hormones, those crazy, unpredictable hormones.
7. Eating large dinner's out and stopping to pick-up a "snack" on the way home.
8. Gaining more weight than Randi in the first trimester.
9. Always knowing who was driving home from Auburn football games.
10. Seeing Randi glow.

5 predictions for the 2nd trimester.

1. Randi starts to build her pillow fortress in the bed

2. Todd finds a new cozy bed to sleep in.

3. Todd trys to explain to Randi that she's not getting fat, but that she is pregnant. (Good luck with that one.)

4. Todd becomes an expert on all the different departments at Babies R' Us.

5. Todd gets really excited when he finds out it's twin girls!!

I thought #9 was pretty well known even before Randi was pregnant.
