All I want to do is sleep! Ahh! I had no idea I would be this incredibly exhausted all of the time!
So, last week at our ultrasound both babies were very active! They were flipping around like crazy. We didn't get any wonderful pictures because MaKayla insisted on helping Dori again and always moves the thing.
The babies measured at 12 weeks! Everything looked wonderful and Dori said that I can stop my estrogen and progesterone and if I need anything from here on to let them know, but I am free to be seen locally now! She said to let them know what we are having and send them a picture when they arrive.. and that is probably the last time we will see her! I am so so very thankful for her and Natalie and the rest of the staff at Fort Bragg! I could never express in words how much their services and kindness means to me! 
As soon as we left the hospital I had a message on my phone from MUSC, the hospital I will be going to here! We weren't able to schedule an appointment right away because they didn't have everything they needed, but it was only a few days before I got everything set up. They tried telling me that I had to wait until September 3rd to have an appointment and I freaked out a bit. They also told me that they aren't scheduling me with a high risk doctor until after they initially see me to decide for themselves if I am high risk. I got it so that I can be seen this Friday. I have to go to the North Charleston clinic at 10:30 for an ultrasound and then the downtown Charleston location at 2:50 to meet with the doctor. I would much rather do that than wait three weeks though! Especially right after coming off all of the medication and everything! I have still been using one Endometrin a day... just because Im crazy and too scared to go from 3 to 0 so suddenly! Hopefully everything at the appointment goes smoother than scheduling it did! I will definitely switch clinics if it doesn't.
I feel like I have grown a lot in the past week! My tummy is just always there now where before it would tend to get more noticeable in the afternoon or evening! 

12 weeks!
 13 weeks! (ignore the face!=P)

That is the last weekly picture that Savier will take for me until the middle of December! Four whole months! That's crazy and super sad to think about! He is moving to Wisconsin this Saturday because he has an interview on Monday in Menasha and then starts school three weeks later! Hopefully he will have a few more interviews during that gap also! =) I'm getting pretty sad about living alone.. especially since I have just been so incredibly tired lately and he has been an angel. He has been taking care of everything while I am a lazy hunk of junk. I don't know how I will function on my own right now.
My military separation is officially approved! As of December 2nd I will be a civilian! I was so excited when I got the email this morning, but a wave of sadness immediately followed that feeling. I have had such a wonderful experience and it really has made me into the woman I am today. Five years ago I never could have imagined all of the things I was about to see and the people I was about to come across! I have learned many harsh lessons along the way, but I cherish every single one of them for different reasons. I could go on and on about all of the ways the military has molded me... but I'll save that for another day! =) Maybe when I'm officially out ;) 
It's only 19 days until I can have a 3d/4d ultrasound to find out the genders!!! EKKKK!!! 
I won't update right after Friday's appointment since it's my last night with Savier, but I will update soon after that! <3

So much support!

We're almost to the 12 week mark! Woohoo! =)) I have been feeling much better lately and last week was filled with lunch hour naps! The babies both measured at 11w1d on Monday at our appointment! Still measuring ahead.. grow babies grow! =)
At our appointment we had one super active one again and one lazy one! I think the letters are mixed up on the ultrasound photos and Baby B was really the active one again! As soon as we saw "him", he was bouncing around and arms and legs were flying everywhere again! I hope he moves this much when I can actually feel it! =)) MaKayla got to help Dori do the ultrasound and she was so so excited!
Look at that little nose on the top!! <3

We scheduled one more appointment there for next week Tuesday and then hopefully the doctor here will at MUSC will have called me back to schedule my first one there! 
We announced our pregnancy on Facebook on Monday right after the appointment and got an incredible amount of love and support in return!! How amazing! =) 396 likes currently on the announcement picture. These babies are going to be so so loved! 

I was told that the doctor's at the clinic I will be going to typically will not tell you the gender until you are 20 weeks, even if they can tell before that! I am hoping that is not really the case, but if it is we will just schedule a 3D for September 8th! I had a dream last night that it was two girls! So I have now had dreams of every single combination and can't even guess at what the real result will be! If i had to guess from the past two times I have seen them, I would say one of each because they seem to be completely opposite in there! =) But whoo knows! Hopefully us in about 4.5 weeks! Ekk! That sounds so so soon! 
I am too the point of feeling like I can't even bend forward comfortably because my belly is growing so much! But I love every second of it! =) 
Until next week... <3

10 weeks!
 11 weeks!
