20 weeks

I am around 20 weeks now! Yay! We are half way there and I am really happy with the way things are going right now. My stomach is growing bigger by the day and sometimes I feel like it can't stretch any further! My back has been hurting as I sleep so I went out and purchased a Leach Snoogle Body Pillow tonight. The reviews on it are amazing so I hope my results are just as good. Other than my back hurting every night, I am doing pretty well. I am eating normally now as I was before I got pregnant so bring on the weight... ;)

Today we had our 20 week appointment at our perinatologist and I was really anxious to see our little babies. They are both doing great and growing on schedule. Every finger and toe are still there and their hearts looks healthy. The boy weighs 11 ounces and the girl weighs 10 ounces. Those little twiners were head butting the whole time and were turned down. We did get some great pictures today! My tech was nice enough to show us what the 3D looks like and she gave us some pictures to take home!

Baby Girl is the top picture. She was face down just about the whole time so this was the best profile picture we could get of her. Clark says her nose is a hybrid of mine and his. She is even smiling at us! What a little cutie!

Baby Boy is the bottom picture and he definitely has my nose! We think he might have Clark's lips. Baby boy was facing up the whole time so we were able to get more pictures of him this week.


This is a picture of our girl's bum, legs, and feet. Clark says she has his cute bum...oh geez haha.

I believe I have been feeling them move just a little. Most likely in the next few weeks the movements will be more noticeable. We see our OBGYN next week so I am excited to see our babies on the screen again! Seeing the babies in 3D really did make my heart melt and made me fall more in love with them. I can't wait to meet them!

Christmas 2010

 I had such a great time on Christmas day spending time with the Gray family! All 9 of us opened presents and relaxed all day! We had a great ham and turkey dinner that night as well. 



Clark received clothes and golfing gear and I got some clothes and a cool alarm clock I have been wanting. I am still waiting for Clark's present... ;)




I hope your Christmas was wonderful too!

Fabric Pom Pom Flower Headband

I am so proud of myself! I saw this tutorial online HERE and it showed me how to a make a fabric flower headband and it is super cute! I am going to make tons (okay maybe not tons because it can be time consuming) for our little baby girl! I was saving this for a craft night with some girlfriends but I had to make one just to make sure I was talented enough to do it first! I look forward to making more and also making a flower bib necklace found HERE!

Thanksgiving in Georgia

For Thanksgiving this year Clark and I went to Georgia! I always love visiting home and seeing all my relatives! The food and company was great! We had it at my parent's home this year since my grandma has been sick and we didn't want her to feel like she had to slave in the kitchen all day! My cousin Lydia was so nice and took some family pictures for us! The last real family picture we had was at our wedding. We have all changed a little since then but we still love each other which is whats important!

Twin Gender Unveiling

I have been waiting for this day forever! On Thursday Clark and I had our first appointment with our perinatologist who specializes in multiples and high risk pregnancies. I was around 16.5 weeks and they were going to do a pretty extensive ultrasound and take measurements of the twins and make sure everything was looking normal. Well the appointment took around 2 hours (1 hour for each twin) and I enjoyed EVERY minute of it! I think I need to buy my own ultrasound machine! The twins were waving and head butting one another. When it came time for the tech to check the genders, we turned our heads because we didn't want to know at that moment. We wanted to wait until Friday night when our friends and family were there with us to unveil the genders! So after our appointment we had to wait 24 hours until we could know the genders! The results were in an envelope that was sealed. Later that night Vicki (my very sweet mother-in-law) and I went to build-a bear to create some teddy bears! We picked out the boy and girl outfits we wanted to use depending on the results. We handed the associate the envelope and said to dress and package the bears and to NOT let us see! They were so giddy and so excited that they were part of it. So the bags of bears were sitting in our room and man was it some what tempting to peek!!!

Friday night we had some friends come over for a bear-b-que (Clark's name idea) so we could eat and unveil the bears! Here is what happened:

We were both thrilled that we got one of each! I really wanted at least one girl! Clark and I both had thought they were a boy and a girl and I guess we were right! Now we can start talking names and pick out some outfits!


Well here I am at 17 weeks! I am getting bigger despite what people think! I am so excited to see a baby belly forming! My appetite is better than a few weeks ago. I can eat about a whole meal now! I need to start exercising moderately for the next few weeks before it gets too uncomfortable. I can now make it through some nights without eating and going to the bathroom! SWEET! This only happens occasionally unfortunately. My mood is great (despite what Clark may say!!) and I feel more connected to our little twins now that I know the genders! I bought a few maternity jeans and shirts for a great deal so I look forward to wearing them! Okay maybe not the jeans, even though they are pretty cute!



Below is the ultrasound pictures! Baby A is the boy and Baby B is the girl! Their little parts are showing too, just in case you do or don't want to see!
