Over the weekend we took the girls to the pediatrician. They are really congested and coughing. Sofia is really bad! No fever or anything, but I wanted to make sure they weren't getting an ear infection or pneumonia or anything. I figure better safe than sorry. So we went, and they are fine- just a cold. They said just to keep an eye on them and keep suctioning their noses! They did get weighed- Maya was 10 lbs 14 oz and Sofia is 12 lbs 11 oz. I may be a little off on the ounces.

Oh, and now I caught this cold from them! I started feeling sick last night, and it's not too bad yet, but I can tell I'm getting sick. I stocked up on vitamin c drops so hopefully those help.

You may remember that I have a stress fracture in my foot and have to wear this lovely shoe and can't work out. I was so afraid of gaining weight, but I've lost 4 pounds in 2 weeks! I am very happy about that! I think it is a combination of things, but probably one of the biggest factors is that I went back on the pill. I think my PCOS symptoms were coming back ,and it is impossible for me to lose weight when I do nothing about the PCOS. So the birth control pills suppressed the symptoms, and so now I am losing weight, Also, I've been eating at home almost exclusively. We eat out maybe ince a week. It was a lot more before we had the girls! And I have been trying to watch my portion sizes. I think the weight loss came at the right time because it is helping to keep me motivated.

Another great thing is that my belly is going down! I have diastasis and I have been doing the exercises to help it. I checked it last night and it feels like I only have about a 2 finger separation! I used to be able to fit my whole hand in there! It still pushes out a little at the top, but it is so much better. I do have plenty of twin skin, but that will start getting a little better as I lose weight.

Things are going really well right now, and I couldn't be happier! I feel so lucky to have both of my girls. They are awesome. I love their smiles and laughs, and even their pouty mouths when they get upset. And even though I would never wish infertility on anyone, and it is not something that anyone should have to go through, I know it has made me much more appreciative of my two girls. I definitely do not take them for granted!

I totally agree with you! For all that I went through, if I ever get upset with the kids because they wont go to bed, or they want to suck too much on my boobs, I just think how lucky I am to have what I have. I think of all the women who have not yet conquered infertility and realize how lucky I am. I got two, TWO freakin adorable babies. Talk about the jackpot!!
Congrats on the weight loss, you will have to post another pic of you and the girls!
