I am sorry I have been off with my posting lately, but I am trying to figure out what is normal for us right now. I am having a difficult time being okay with everything. I am still afraid of the dangers of twin-to-twin transfusion (TTTS).
The best way I can explain the feelings going on inside of me is that it is like someone you love being sick and you don’t know if they are going to make it through the illness. You don’t know if you are ever going to get to be with them and hold them in your arms.
We are going to start having weekly ultrasounds. Every Monday we will go see the high risk doctor and take a look at how our girls our doing. Our babies will be closely monitored until they are safely in my arms.
I cannot thank all of you enough for the kind and caring messages you have been writing me. They have really helped me get through this tough time. I am so thankful to have your support.
Today, I am going to try and post my regular Wednesday post. I need to try to get back into some sort of routine.
We ate Greek Yogurt Waffles for breakfast. But, unfortunately my waffle iron is still sticking. Since, we love waffles so much we bought a more expensive waffle maker and it is not even a year old, yet already sticking. The waffle maker I have right now is Warning Pro WMK300A. I do love it, so hopefully it’s not the end of it. If you have any suggestions on what to do or a new one to buy I’d love to hear about them in the comments below.
I wish I would have taken a picture of the mess I scraped out of the waffle iron. Nonetheless, they were still delicious. Click here for the recipe. (23 grams of protein)
This is a picture of a time the came out beautifully.
I wanted to make my protein pancakes, but there was no time before dance. Instead, I ate a luna bar and drank a glass of milk. The protein pancakes would have had double the protein, but I can only do so much. (17 grams of protein)
Lunch was my typical salad with turkey, sliced almonds, pita croutons, and a sprinkle of cheese. (15 grams of protein)
Carrots with hummus. I have been loving hummus lately and this combination is perfect.
I knew I needed more protein for the day, so I opened a can of tuna fish and added a little miracle whip. This has been a favorite ever since I can remember. (26 grams of protein)
I ended up doing way too much today. Therefore, Steve decided he was going to pick up dinner. We ordered one of our favorites, Drunken Noodle, from a Thai restaurant on his way home from work. I have to say it really hit the spot. (25 grams of protein)
