The other two week wait
My next ultrasound is in a week, a full two weeks after the first one, and I am going a little crazy with the waiting.

I'm pretty sure I'm still pregnant. I've developed the ability to be hungry and queasy at the same time, odd as that seems, so if that's anything to go on I'm pretty sure I'm still pregnant. The big question is whether or not they are both alive.

You see, much as I tried to warn myself not to count on it, I have become really attached to the idea of having twins. I'm worried about that much smaller sac. Sure, Grace was all positive and upbeat about it, but still. I keep thinking thoughts like 'better buy those cheaper Ikea cribs since we'll need two' and then I remember the woman I know who was originally having twins only to end up with a singleton. I really want both these babies.

I held out and didn't use a pee test until after I had my blood test. But I used a couple while waiting for my ultrasound, just to convince myself that I was still pregnant. It's tougher because I don't really have any symptoms except being tired.

For what it's worth, we didn't buy a crib until Dorothy was three or four months old at least. A bassinet by your bed is better for a tiny one, especially if you're breastfeeding. (Didi lent us a really nice bassinet. Definitely try to borrow stuff like that that you're only going to use for a few months. Maybe George still has some stuff?) We also liked the boxy baby bed thingy that goes between your pillows. If you have a king-size bed, you might even be able to fit two of them, or you could have one in the middle and one in a bassinet on the side.

We didn't really use the crib all that much in the early months. I still have the baby in bed with me a lot. A cosleeper is a nice choice. I had rented a really tiny wood one (maybe I can figure out from where again if you need it) And there is also the Arm's Reach Cosleeper.

Wait on the crib. I think twins will fit in one crib for awhile, they really don't move much in the beginning and the crib is plenty big enough.

Queasy while hungry is definitely a pregnancy symptom. I found if I ate then the feeling went away. Tired was my other big symptom but that doesn't seem as specific.
