New Pics, But Not The Photo Challenge Kind...

Hi, slacker here.

Taking pics, not posting them.  That's the name of this game.  Still participating in Scrambled Eggs' March Photo Challenge.  Still taking those pics. Still not posting them.  Motivation is NOT my strongsuit, peeps.

Here are some pics, though.  They are my maternity proofs by an amazing photographer who will be taking the twins' newborn pics and some family pics as well when the babes are six months old or so.  The gallery will be up until Monday night (3/19) at midnight (CST), so if you are reading this post after that time and cannot access the pics, that is why.

Anyway, without further blah, blah, blahing...

Go to Beth Jansen Photography.

Honest to blog, my photo challenge pics are coming soon. :)

This and That Friday

I have been vacant this week, but for good reasons, nothing bad.

DH was out of town for work and I had a friend come visit me to keep me company, keep me sane, and (to be honest) help me the heck out.  The days of DH being gone and me just "handling it" are o-v-e-r.  I'm too big, too tired, and too big and tired to go it alone.

So, my wonderful friend K, came all the way from Y-town, Ohio to spend a few days, share a bunch of laughs, and make a freezer full of meals to keep us going on days when it's all just too much.  This is incredibly kind of her, as she works a job where when she does not work, she does not get paid.  Also, she is struggling with IF herself, and will be going down the path of donor eggs starting this summer. I know it was not easy for her to be here, but we talked a lot about it and she knows I am there for her no matter what. She, in turn, is there for me - no matter what.  Our friendship is one of my longest and dearest.

I did go to the OB on Monday, all is well and next visit is my glucose test - blech.

I also saw my specialist for my monthly u/s and the boys are growing great. Almost two pounds each! Back for another u/s in four weeks with him.

Also, I am STILL participating in Scrambled Eggs' March photo challenge. You would be surprised how excited I am to capture each day's photo when you compare it with how much I loathe uploading pictures. I have a post with all pics forthcoming!!

Signing off, I had my maternity pictures done last week and although the proofs will not be ready for another week, my photographer posted a "teaser" photo on her blog and I thought I would share it. For anyone who wants to see it, just click this link!

Pic Challenge

In an effort to be steady as a rock and as boring as possible for the month of March (boring, as in no-more-pregnancy-drama-boring) I am linking up with Scrambled Eggs and doing a month-long daily photo challenge.  I'm not behind already! I did take a picture yesterday, just didn't get around to posting it until now.

Day 1: A self-portrait

Haha, a look my DH sees.....A LOT.

And as far as my kidneys are concerned, I'm still uncomfortable and it hurts to pee. In all honesty, I'm not really straining my pee like I should, but I know for sure I haven't passed anything, so I'm not really bothering with it.  I go to the OB on Monday and am going to have them test my urine again. I'm *hoping* for some answers then.  The important thing is that I'm not contracting. And in nowhere near the amount of pain I was in last Friday.

Happy Weekend! And yay for fun photo challenges!!
