Today was a fun day. My mom went with me to the doctor and got to see an ultrasound for the first time. Not only did we see heartbeats today, but we also saw moving, squirming babies!! All 3 were moving!! The nurse said this is a great milestone because it reduces my risk of miscarriage to less than 5%....that brought some much needed peace of mind.
After my appointment we headed to a local "garage sale" that was sponsored by a local "moms of multiples" organization. I had joined the group earlier this week so that I could shop first in the sale as a "pregnant member". When we got there it felt a little like Black Friday. There were long lines and crazy pregnant women pushing to get to the strollers. It was a little overwhelming to me. However, I found a double stroller, some unisex baby clothes, and a few maternity clothes. The funniest part was that I was so excited about the stroller...pushing it to the car just smiling ear to ear. I get to the car and open the back hatch and suddenly I am FROZEN. I had NO CLUE how to fold it up!! First, I looked to make sure no one was watching then I tried really hard to do it myself to no avail. I called my mom to come out and help...no luck. Finally, I saw a man loading strollers into his car with his wife so I nabbed him. He was so nice...he showed me how to do it and explained everything. Needless to say, I have LOTS to learn. I am very happy with my purchases and consider our trip a success. I can't wait to go back when I know how to shop for boy/girl specific clothes.
Enjoy the weekend!
