The BIG 20 Week Ultrasound

So Monday was the big 20 week ultrasound. Every time we get to see our babies I am on a super high for quite a while. It is so amazing to see what God is knitting together inside me. It's still hard for me to believe I am actually pregnant with these precious twins. Talk about miracles!!
Baby A
Baby B

Everything seemed to be ok, but I got a call this morning from my doctor saying I need to go back for a repeat ultrasound. I didn't get any details except that they need to take another look at baby A's heart. I am just praying that everything is ok. I don't like getting scary calls like that. I also don't like when the ultrasound tech  takes 2 hours to do the ultrasound (not kidding) and has to bring in a few different people to look at my babies.... There is nothing more I can do than pray. I know they are in God's hands and I am trusting Him too keep them safe!

On a happy note, we found out the sexes of the babies! 
I know you all will hate me, but we are not spilling the beans yet!! Not even our families know. You'll find out soon enough ;)
Now we have to start thinking of names, shopping for the nursery, all that fun stuff. So exciting!

Lastly, here is a peek at me at 20 weeks. Fat and happy, lol!
I'm playing a guessing game with my facebook friends called "If you didn't already know, how far along would you think I am?". Risky, I know. I think I look more like 32 weeks...but I am having twins! :)

Things are Changing

First of all I have to say that I have such sweet readers!! I have received several emails and messages from you guys just checking up on me, wondering how I am doing. Aww shucks, you really like me! :)
Those of you who are my Facebook friends get the play by play of what's happening in my life, but for my poor neglected blog friends, I suppose I owe you an update!
Mostly I have been busy growing babies :)
Here is my attempt to pull my head out of the toilet (which is mainly where you can find me these days), and document in pictures this miraculous journey.
Keep in mind I am carrying twins!!

Now for some random factoids you may or may not be interested in reading ;)

* I have been completely smitten with celery over the past few weeks. It's the only thing I ever care to eat. 

* Between 16 and 18 weeks I feel like these babies grew at warp speed and my belly must have doubled in size! (see photos 3 and 4)

* My regular jeans no longer cooperate in the buttoning department.

* I am only 6lbs away from gaining back all the weight I lost during the first trimester, and if these kids keep growing at the speed of light I will get there in no time!

* We get to find out real soon the sex of these little ones. I can't wait!!!

* I am going to try not to go months between posts again. If you just have to know what I'm up to you can find me on facebook!
