27ish weeks!

From my fav lady, Erma Bombeck:

On Sunday I was 27 weeks. 27 weeks? Seriously? It seems like just yesterday I took a home pregnancy test on a Friday, then ran to the bar where teacher happy hour was taking place to pass around a picture of the test to my friends from school, too excited to hold it in.

It is crazy how fast time flies, and how so much can change in a year. It was only a year ago that I was gearing up for another IVF cycle, and then another after that, wondering, praying, and hoping that sometime would be our time. It is so true that God works in mysterious ways, and that He has a plan for us all. I am so glad that these two precious babies are in the plan for us.

27 weeks, which would mean 13 weeks left if I were having one baby, but a maximum of 11 since we are having two miracles. I am so excited to meet these little angels, but I also am loving being pregnant. I promised myself long ago that I would try not to complain about pregnancy too much, after all, it is something I only dreamed would happen to me someday. So I take everyday as a blessing, run to the mirror and check out my bump every morning, just to make sure it wasn't all some amazingly fantastic dream.

As far as pregnancy goes, I really can't complain. Some heartburn, sure, some aches and pains here and there, yes. But I am sleeping quite well, the babies are doing amazing, and I have a doting husband who helps makes life so much easier, so life is good, pregnancy is good, and God is good.

On Friday we had an ultrasound and Rhett and I both took days off work so we could go together. The babies looked great, and they are both measuring ahead of where a singleton would even be! 2.6 pounds each thank you very much! These kiddos love to eat, and I hope they keep growing big and strong everyday! They are both breech, and their two little heads are snuggled up next to one another, so adorable. So it is looking like a c-section but they still could turn, but with twins, a c section might not be such a bad thing after all!

Tomorrow is Rhett's birthday, the most important day of the year in my opinion, the day the most selfless, caring, funny, hard-working, smart, and handsome man in the world was born. The man I am lucky enough to call my husband and our little miracles are lucky enough to call daddy.

Here are my 27 week pics: Yes, I am asked everyday if I am due any day now!! The babies are the size of cauliflowers, but I can't draw, hence why they look like really large grapes..

Here are some ultrasound pics. A is baby boy, B is baby girl! The one pic that says A and B in it is their little heads nestled up next to one another!

25ish weeks!

So I was 25 weeks on Sunday, which means I am closer to being 26 weeks than 25, but I did take my pictures two days ago, so I figured it was time to post!
Time has been flying by! Last week was my Spring Break. It started off with me coming down with a really bad cold that kind of knocked me out. It was nice though to just relax, sleep in a little, lay around, and start putting stuff away in the nursery. There is still a ton to do, like paint, put up curtains, hang prints, but things are finding a place and we can walk in there without tripping over stuff now, so I'll take that as progress!!
Yesterday Rhett and I went to our first child birth class. It was at Northwestern, where we will deliver, and it was cool because it was a class just for parents of multiples! All the couples except for one, were having twins and one couple was having triplets!! We thought we were going to have our hands full. We learned a lot, I got a little queasy watching the birthing video, but beyond that it was good. We are both exhausted though because it was 4 hours long and ended at 9, so that was very late for me to get to bed!!

The kiddos have been super active and are moving all over the place! I just look down at my stomach and it's like watching a tidal wave, they both like me to know they are there, I think they are going to have some adorable little personalities!

Well that is all for now, hope all is well with everyone!

Bails, Rhett, and twinsies

Here are my 25 week pics, I have started getting asked if I am due any day now, I just look surprised and say, "I'm not pregnant." (only kidding, but how funny would that be?!?!)
