14 Weeks_Baby Hammar 2 and 3

How Far Along: 14 weeks 
Size of babies: lemon/orange...I'm getting two different things in my emails.
Weight gain: 2 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Little bit of maternity and regular. 
Gender:We find out April 11! I had a very vivid dream last week of what they are...and I should probably be listening to my dreams considering I dreamt 3 times before finding out it was twins that I was pregnant with twins! :)
Movement: Yes! I know it's early but I asked and it's normal to feel them this early with it being my second pregnancy and there are 2 in there! :) And it's super cool because it's in two different places in my tummy. :) I can't wait for Tucker and the Mr. to be able to feel them on the outside!
Sleep: Sleep is okay...I get up twice during the night and I keep finding myself on my right side and that freaks me out. ha!
Symptoms: Well, I was better last week and then the sickness came back.  :( Throwing up every morning is back...go away! ha! I can't stand being sick...I'm too busy to be sick!
What I miss: Nothing really right now. And iced coffee would be yummy!
Cravings: Nothing too much this week. I'm still enjoying mint chocolate chip ice cream but not wanting it as much this week as last week. :)
Best Moment this week: Asking Tucker where the babies are and he lifts up my shirt and rubs my tummy...he even gave them lots of kisses this week! Now, if he really understands what it all means...probably not...but it's so sweet. :)
What I am looking forward to: Our doctors appointment next week!

Here is what I'm saying So What to this week:
So What If...

  • I'm ready for April! March has been full of nasty weather!
  • Tucker does the cutest noise with his mouth and when I do it back he gets so excited! :)

  • I'm obsessed with the Florida Georgia Line and Nelly remix of Cruise!
  • The Fiber One brownies are AMAZING! ha!
  • I'm ready to know what the babies are! :)

Mini Wheats and Ultra Sounds

Tucker has found his tongue! :) We think it's because he has new teeth coming in, but it's so darn cute!

We got to see the babies on Friday! And as soon as our ultrasound girl started the ultra sound Baby B was waving! :) So precious!

They are so active! They are always moving so much during the ultra sounds! Which is so funny because Tucker didn't move hardly at all when he had ultra sounds! ha! Now, he did move for sure, just not when we could see him! :)

We are enjoying all the extra ultra sounds for sure!

This weekend was so yucky but it was nice to stay inside as a family! 

The Mr. introduced TJH to Frosted Mini Wheats...and he LOVED them! :)

Tuck went to the store with me on Saturday and when I looked back to talk to him he gave me the biggest smile! :) Love that boy to pieces!

He was pulling his sock of his favorite things to do in the car. :)

So much to be thankful for right now and I'm just enjoying the simple things in life right now and thanking God constantly!

Fun with Daddy!

Saturday I had a wedding shower to attend so the Mr. and TJH had the afternoon to play together!

First they went to Home Depot and Chick-fil-A with T to do boy things. 

Then when they got home they had even more fun!

I am so blessed that the Mr. is such a fun hands on Daddy! He is always doing things with Tucker so that he has so much fun! :)

Tucker's Tummy Update II

First of all, thank you for all the prayers, emails and questions about our sweet boy!
We went last week to Scottish Rite for two scans for Tucker's tummy. I talked about it in this post.

Well, we got the results and they all came back normal. Praise the Lord! :) We were glad that the scans came back normal. But we were also concerned because it doesn't solve the problem. Tucker is still dealing with extreme constipation.

We did try something new this week and we are hoping it helps. We have been giving him a cap full of Mirlax every night with his evening bottle. But we switched it to the morning because our friend L suggested it might work better. So we are seeing how that works before starting the new medicine that the specialist gave him.

Tucker's GI specialist did call us back on Monday and reported again that all the scans came back normal and that she wanted us to try a different medicine to see if it would help. We will try it if the change in time of the Mirlax doesn't work.

We just want our little boy to feel better and not have problems going to the bathroom. Our specialist did say that we have to get this fixed before he potty trains because it could really interfere with that.
Again, thank you for all the prayers and love. TJH has been so brave and strong through all of this and we are thankful that he's hopefully getting better! :)

Surprise Blessing!

Monday morning was the first day back from Spring Break. I was excited to be back with my kiddos but already starting to count down the days until summer break.
Then all of the sudden one of my students from last year brought me a unexpected present. A double nursing pillow! WHAT? I was just looking this past weekend online for these...they are usually about $80! My sister-in-law was going to a consignment sale and I just told her, you may not find one but just in case and I sent her a pic of one.
The one my student brought me is BRAND NEW! I'm just so amazed by her love and thoughtfulness. The students I teach come from nothing but have the BIGGEST hearts! God is blessing us so much, first by giving us two babies at the same time! :)
What a wonderful surprise blessing!

Our Weekend! :)

Thursday Tucker and I headed to a hotel to stay to be closer for his appt on Friday. He had to fast 6 hours prior to his Upper GI Scan and we didn't think it would be fair for him to have to sit in 2.5 hours of rush hour traffic on a Friday morning. So we went early! It was fun! Expect, I woke him up at 2am for a bottle because that was the last time he could eat. And he didn't want to go back to sleep until almost it made for a long night. But it was so nice to only have to drive 5 min with him to the hospital. 

He had to drink Barium before his scan and he did great! 
Then they took x-rays every hour for 4 hours. So in between we explored the great hospital! 

When it was all over he was so tired and slept all the way to PTC. 

Saturday we played with GMama. 

Then Saturday afternoon we celebrated LK's 18th birthday. I didn't take any pictures of the birthday girl. :(  But I did get this cute pic of T and Aunt K in their matching shirts! :) We had a great time celebrating and being with everyone. We headed home Saturday evening. T slept the whole way home. 

Sunday we headed to church and then spent the afternoon at home. I got things ready for school and Tuck took some good naps. His fun weekend wore him out! :)

We are so blessed to be able to go see all our family in one weekend. T loves being with his grandparents and aunites. :)

What a great weekend! 

Now, it's back to the real world...but summer break is only 44 school days away!

12 Weeks_Baby Hammar 2 and 3

How Far Along: 12 weeks 
Size of babies: limes
Weight gain: none

Gender:We find out April 11! I have my predication already though! :)
Movement: Not yet...but I can't wait...I felt T move at 16 weeks so I'm hoping I'll feel these sweet babies sooner since there are more arms and feet to kick around! 
Sleep: Sleep is good. Only have to get up once or twice for a potty break. 
Symptoms: Lots of headaches this week...even though I'm drinking a ton of water. Hoping after this 12 week mark I'll start to feel better!
What I miss: Being able to do all that I used to do...I need more energy and to feel better!
Cravings: Nothing inparticular. I did have one craving this week and I acted upon it since I've felt so bad lately. I wanted Baskin' Robbin's mint choc chip ice cream with hot fudge! YUM!
Best Moment this week: It was Spring Break! So lots of relaxing!
What I am looking forward to: Our next doctors appointment on March 22...we get to see the babies again! It's the big appt where they do all the scans for please pray that our sweet babies are healthy!

Spring Break!

This week was Spring Break for me and the Mr. We spent it at home and on the road to Tuck's doc appts. It was a great week with pretty weather! 

Here are some pictures of our week:

Tucker thinks it's funny to try to drink the water in the bath so he thought he could get this one past with me by drinking through the wash cloth! ew!

We made a trip to the store!

Tuck squeals when he gets out of the bath tub now with excitement! 

We took the doggies swimming one day and they were so happy!

Tucker loved watching! He looks concerned but he was having fun!

This boy loves to read! We read a lot this week!

Wednesday morning we headed to Scottish Rite for scan one!

This was Tuck about 10 minutes down the road from leaving Scottish Rite! Worn out!

We made sure to have a fun afternoon after a not so fun morning at the hospital! Lots of playing and a popsicle! 

Daddy even brought in the swing and slide to play!

Little wagon ride around the living room!

I'm trying very hard to teach Tucker to stay seated while in the bathtub...this is pretty impossible! And he found out he could put his toys away while still in the bath and loved standing and playing with Mr. Frog!

Thursday morning started out with smoothies and Tucker LOVED them!! He loves fruit already so put it in a liquid cold form and he was in heaven! 

Sweet boy! :)

We were thankful for a nice week at home all together! The Mr. got school work done and I got some resting in. :)

Life of a teacher is pretty great! :)
