Well, I didn't see this coming ...

I'm pregnant.  With twins.  Since I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, it's a minor miracle that I've conceived without medical intervention at all.  So I'm delighted, but it definitely was not in the plans for this year.

On a happy note, my ovaries obviously understand that I should have all my medical expenses in one year and get the child tax deductions for 2011 with only 2 months of baby expenses (I'm due Oct 31).

HOWEVER, no one ever explained to me the living hell that is so-called morning sickness.  In my case, it's more like 24-hours-a-day-7-days-a-week sickness, and it's akin to having airplane sickness constantly.  It's been going on for 3 weeks and my midwife expects that it will only continue for another month or so.  Some days it is all I can manage to wipe the vomit off my face before I go back to bed for the rest of the day.  So expect sporadic posts from me until life starts revolving less around my proximity to the bathroom facilities.
