And I am growing two of them right now. Yep, two little penises developing inside my womb. Ick. Sounds weird.
Ernie could not be happier.
He is already planning the first trick the three of them will play on me. He is already planning experiments to do on them. The pots and pans symphony is being composed as we speak.
My dad is hoping for one Dale Earnhart and one Yo-Yo- Ma.
My Father in Law can't wait to go fishing.
My Mother in Law is trying to figure out how on Earth we are going to live with four Adzentoivich men, three living under one roof.
My Mother can't wait to shop. She didn't care if she was going for pink or blue, as long as she knew one way or the other. Shopping is shopping afterall.
I am just very, very happy and grateful. So far every test and every ultrasound has been perfect. Knock wood.
They each weigh 7 oz and are about 7 inches long from head to butt. Don't ask about names because we have no idea. And if we did we wouldn't tell anyway.
My fears about my employer trying to squeeze me out of the company seem to be coming to fruition. Yesterday they rejected my Maternity Plan. In light of their "No Paid Maternity Leave Policy" I proposed a plan that I thought would benefit everyone in case of complications, etc. This plan included my working on special projects, contributing Blog entries for our company blog, doing sales proposals, and other autonomous tasks that could easily be accomplished from home using our company intranet (which was built for just this purpose)should I need to stop working early or require bed rest (already happened), etc. In the case of no complications I proposed spending some of the 12 weeks mandated by law actually working from home. This would allow me to contribute to the organization as well as continue to nurse the babies and care for them in their infancy. Well, I was told with no negotiations, that working from home for extended periods will not be allowed. Period. So I get the $175/week short term disability pay and that's it. Good luck paying two mortgages on that. Oh yeah, and caring and providing for two infants. Nice. After two years of dedicated service I get their message loud and clear.
So we are freaking out a little bit. Luckily we had an appointment today and got to see our two healthy squirmy baby boys. It helped put things into perspective. So what if we need to squeeze them and their car seats into the back of our two door Hyundai - I guess we won't be the first ones.
