19 weeks!

Well it is safe to say, that my nesting mode has offically kicked in! We got our cribs and changing table, and Rhett put them together! The second room is now a nursery! We still have a lot to do, such as adding a new paint color, curtains, and rug, and I need to find a glider, but there is still lots of time for that!

In other news, I am 19 weeks and 5 days, so I am a little late on the blog post, but better late than never! We had our big ultrasound this week where they looked closely at each twin to study their organs, growth, heart rates, etc. It all looked great! The only thing that was noted was one of my placentas is a bit low so it just means no lifting,running, etc. Which is all fine by me right now! The doctor said that it isn't anything to worry about, it can just mean that I might have to have a c- section, which with twins is pretty common anyways!

The twins are a really great size, they are the each the size of where a single baby would be right now, which means they are REALLY big for twins, so the doctor was quite pleased with this. I felt like perhaps I was getting big a bit fast but when I heard this news, I knew it was all for a great cause! I will continue to work on growing some big babies!

They aren't just making their presence known by increasing my ever growing bump, I feel them move around a lot! It is like a twitch or flutter, not really a full on kick, but that will happen soon. I can't wait to see the look on Rhett's face when he feels these little miracles for the first time!

We still pinch ourselves and are so excited our miracles are doing well, we can't wait to meet them soon. As always thanks for your love and support. We can't wait to share the gender reveal with you on March 2nd!


Here are the proud big brothers helping Rhett with the cribs:

Here they are checking out the structural soundness, we put a blanket down, don't worry, no doggies germs!

Here is baby A, this isn't the name initial it refers to which baby will leave mommy first!:

Here is baby B, the B is not for boy or an initial, it means this baby leaves second:

17 weeks!

So I am supposed to be blogging every week and posting a pic every week, but that hasn't really happened. I am feeling a lot better, am getting more of an appetite, just have been so tired! The little ones are growing a lot and I have been feeling a lot of stretching lately!

Rhett and I have been busy getting our place ready for baby while I am still feeling okay. We have gotten rid of our guest room furniture and have a changing table, and a storage unit in the nursery so far! I have been looking at paint and we ordered the cribs, which should arrive next week! I know that I am doing everything way early, but figured if I am feeling motivated to do it, might as well! We are so excited to meet these little ones and are both so in love with them already!

In March we have two showers! One here in the Chicagoland area on March 2nd and one in Cincy later in the month on March 16th. We are looking forward to sharing the genders of our little ones on March 2nd! It seems like time is just flying by, it is hard to believe that I am already 17 weeks! We feel so blessed and sometimes I still can't believe that our dream has finally come true!
