10 weeks

I'm amazed that I am able to type "10 weeks" as a title for this post. This is really amazing and I am so excited and pray that everything continues to go well. We are so happy, Super S and I and are just besides ourselves really.

April 26, will be 13w2d and thats when we will go in for the nuchal scan. Its an important day and I pray too that all will turn out well.

I'll be honest I have stopped consulting Dr. Google so much. It makes me crazy when I find something and then I tend to read more into it and of course not fully understand everything and it makes me nervous. This is in regards to everything from size of fetus to heartbeat rate and so on.

But, I did come across this site, it has videos of fetal abnormalities from nuchal scans and is quite interesting. I only viewed one video and just saved it in my bookmarks. It is very interesting though.

I am not knocking being informed, I am all for it and cannot stress how important it is to be informed. I mean I credit the internet and your blogs and my research into immune/implantation issues for my successful pregnancy. (after the Will of God of course first)

So I guess I want to say that while I will continue to educate myself, I am taking alittle break from researching every little aspect of being pregnant and just letting things take their course.

Still waiting for my Bella Bands from the States, my friend should be FEDEX ing them this week, I can't wait. I can still button most of my pants but they are a bit snug now.

I feel hungry all the time. Really, I want to eat everything. I watch myself and don't give in always, but I must say I know I put on some weight from my weigh in last time I was by Dr. K. I will not divulge what it was, but when I saw it I was like damn! He said it was good, LOL ok then.

So Super S's family knows we're pregnant. OMG can I tell you how excited they were! We started by telling his brother, who is not doing well, actually he's pretty sick. Super S said he wanted to give him something to feel good about and boy did he.

See this brother waited 11 years to have a baby back in the day. His son is now like 22 I think. They did not use any medical intervention back then they just kept trying and it finally worked for them. So this was a special thing for him and his wife to hear and they were very happy.

Then we told the rest of his brothers and sisters and his aunt and they are all so so happy and excited too.  It was wonderful to see their faces and share this awesome news with them.

I had told my mom and dad awhile back but couldn't get in touch with my sister. I finally got her the other day and told her. She is so happy! She was like "maybe you can give me one.." we laughed so hard, she was joking of course. So now all the important people in our lives know the amazing news.

You guys of course are the privledged ones, the first to know after Super S, cause you're special like that, and I love ya! Oh and maybe because the internet is public domain too?

Another HOT day in Cairo today, forcasting 91 degress for today and its just beautiful. We had our morning coffee, (Super S had coffee) sitting in the garden and it was just perfect. I wait for the day we are able to take our kids outside and watch them run and play, then it will really be perfect.


  1. Oh man, 10 weeks is WONDERFUL! I am so happy for you!

  2. Happy 10 weeks! YAY!

    Dr. Google is the a nurse, I constantly tell my patients to NOT consult Google for their issues! ;) Good Job!

  3. Yeah for 10 weeks! I know it was such a nice feeling to be in the double digits - knowing the 2T is not too too far away!! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!!

  4. Congrats for reaching 10 weeks...and hey I hope the NT says 'All Good' in bold letters!

    I am so happy that you got to share the sweet news with your family and they are so elated about it...I pray that it all goes well, and that your vision of seeing your kids run around in the garden comes true!

    One Q: I had thought of asking then also, but it kind of slipped me....for how long have you given up on coffee? You don't take coffee at all, or would take it still on a rare day?

  5. Giving Google a cooler is a good idea!

  6. Happy 10 Weeks! :)

    Kudos to you for laying off of Dr. Google. I had to do the same thing...he was giving me nothing but bad news (or things I couldn't really understand or do anything about) and I was constantly keeping myself in a state of panic...for NO reason. Praying that you'll have a measure of peace about it all and of course, that the NT scan will be perfect on both the Superbabies.

    Enjoy your lovely weather! xoxoxo

  7. Hooray for 10 weeks!

    FYI, the twin book that I followed said that to reduce the chances of premature labor/birth you should put on 24 pounds by 24 weeks, and eat over 3000 calories per day including 160 grams of protein. I could never eat that much, but maybe you can. When I was 10 weeks, I was too nauseous to eat much at all. You're lucky that you're hungry now. It's for the good of the babies, so eat away! :)

  8. Oh sweetie, considering that here is raining and grey I'm quite envious!! 10 weeks!! I know I'm right though, even the scan said you were ten weeks already, but I suppose with twins it doesn't matter too much! Absolutely stop reading dr. Google, your babies are just fine and I've no doubt they are perfect also. Much love, Fran

  9. taking a break from researching on google is a really good idea. now if i could only take my own advice! :)

    congrats on 10 weeks! you're blazing the path, girl! it must feel so good to know that all of your loved ones know. i'm not sure where we'll tell people. might even wait until 13 weeks.

    p.s. thanks for keeping your hair braided. i'm sure it won't be necessary, but i'm grateful nonetheless.

  10. WOW--Welcome to 10 weeks, here's to 30 more good ones! Keep us posted!

  11. 10 weeks down, probably less than 30 to go, since there's twins. Get your eating in - those babies need calories and energy! Worry about weight after they're here.

    Glad to hear that things are going well. I'm sure both your families are very excited!

  12. Happy 10 weeks! Congratulations!

    I can remember the constant feeling of hunger--it was so bad I contemplated ripping food out of people's hands! (I didn't. I just thought about it!)

  13. Wow, 10 weeks that is absolutely sensational!! It sounds like everything is going really well and how wonderful to be able to tell everyone, it is such a lovely feeling!!

  14. Happy 10 weeks! So glad to have you as my pg buddy xx

  15. Hey you!!
    Wow, yay for 10 weeks. LOVE the new header, I hadn't seen it yet!! Woo :)
    You're right about not consulting Dr Google so much, I can understand why you stopped doing that.
    Thanks so much for visting my blog!
    take care

  16. YEAH!!! 10 weeks!! That is awesome! Dr. Google can be such a worry inducing booger sometimes huh? LOL!!! Are you going to find out the sex of the babies?

  17. I limit my Dr Google time, it's not healthy for me. What a special moment to share with your BIL, he gets it.
    Happy 10 weeks!!

  18. Yeah for 10 weeks! I am so happy for you - it must have been so fun telling your family members :)

  19. I am surprised you still fit into non-maternity pants at 10 weeks pregnant with twins! I dawned maternity pants at 10 weeks with a singleton. My advice, don't wait to wear them. If you do, you will wonder why you waited. Maternity pants are a gift from God. They are so incredibly comfortable.

    Cheers to being 10 weeks!

  20. Happy 10 Weeks!!!!

    I'm thrilled for you. Great to hear that your families are so happy as well. Hope the Bella Bands arrive soon :)
