- Wedding: July 2012
This is sort of a vent, realization of how much has actually happend in MY first year or so of marriage. Anyone else’s been this eventful?? :
Was with DH for many years…got engaged in spring of 2010, found myself unemployed January of 2011 and on my way back to school to finish my nursing degree which I had started some years back but never finished. Got married Summer 2012, finishe dmy nursing program summer 2013, got my BFP just two weeks after graduation, got a job only about a month and a half ago, and at about the same time found out we were having twins! Just getting my feet planted in this new job which is challening, requires one to be very, very meticulous and just so happens I work with a doctor who is a complete and utter prick, who hangs up on you and treats you like a peon….but it’s a desk job, for a fantastic company that pays VERy well and nurtures it’s employes to move forward with their professional goals….and by that I mean they offer tuation reimbursment for those who want to continue their nursing education, as well as trasfer opportunity to other departments, etc.
Still, stress has been high, but my hubs had been great, treating me with extra care and kindess as well as patience throuought my pregnancy. I”m 19 weeks on wednesday and I feel very, very pregnant. I’m hustling and bustling atll day at work with these two little ones kicking around in my belly, rushing home and crashing out emmediatly….getting almost nothing done during the week, depending alot on my husband and family to help me with errands and chores during the weekend.
I didn’t budget for childcare for two children when we started to ttc….I never in my wildest dreams imagined I’d have twins….I’m scared how we wil afford for both, I”m praying my mother or mother in law will decide to stay home and care for the children….so that I don’t have to throw my career away completley. I do realize it may be unrealistic for me to work full time…but who knows, I’m going to give it my best.
There is so much uncertainty and also worry about the pregnancy. It’s been normal and healthy thus far, but I can barley walk at the end of the day due to the strain on my pelvis and I”m only about half way through this. The babies are measuring large, about 80th percentile for their gestational age. I haven’t gained much weight thought, about 14 or so.
Still, I can honestly say this is about the happiest time in my life…even though I’m scared to death half the time. =)
