Jumpin' Jelly Beans!!

Best day ever. I went to see Dr J today and we got to see the jelly beans. One measures 11w5d (one day ahead - clearly a genius) and the other one ... 12w2d!!! Seriously folks, this little one is not so little anymore. Rugby player I think.

Anyhow, this is the 'best day ever' news. Dr J was trying to get to the 12w2d baby who is positioned high and the little bugger started jumping! S/he pushed off the placenta and started bouncing up and down!!!! Oh man, even Dr J shrieked with delight. "Wow, so strong!" she said. It was so totally cool. Jumping up and down. Dancing was cool but bungee jumping was the delightful.

We have our NT ultrasound this Thursday (unless I can get them to move it up) and that will be the last time I get to see them until March 2nd. Am I concerned? A little but I have learnt to give up to this whole process. What can I do? If I worry now will it change the outcome? They are moving around and growing well so hopefully that is a good sign.

Oh and here are the results on the anti-blak research.
Eating ever 2 hours really helps
Get up and don't lie down (sleep sitting up)
Go for a walk before and after food (with plastic bags if needed)
Preggo pops/drops - amazing!
Grapefruit followed by saltines first thing in the morning
Snack on protein.
Raisin bran for ... well, you know

So thank you fellows - you got me through blak Olympics!!!


  1. So glad you are feeling better. AND what great news on your little beans!! I am glad that they decided to put on a show for you all :)

  2. Your babies are amazing, obviously they are overachievers! Maybe they are inspired by the olympics? So glad you got to see them on the big screen. Take care.

  3. So exciting! I'm so happy everyone is measuring well and they are both so active. It's incredible the first time you get to see them on the screen - so amazing. :-)

  4. Super duper fantastic news! Two little superstars, showing off for mom!

    When we went for our NT scan, I gushed about how amazing the whole experience was for me, and I cried (of course) and ooohed and aaahed over every little body part. I think the tech felt my gratitutde and gave us a strip of like 20 pictures. I'm just saying.....

    Glad you've found a series of remedies to help with the blak. Life just keeps getting better and better!

    glad you are finding ways to manage the yuck
    and hope things continue this way!

  6. Awesome! I am so happy for you EB!
