I promise I have not forgotten about my fellow bloggers or even my own blog. I have had so many blog topics floating around in my little preggo brain; however, when I actually sit down to pound the words out on my keyboard, it just does not happen. I am still reading blogs. I just have to read them through my blog app which sometimes makes it hard for me to comment. Please know I’m still praying for all of you ladies who are still waiting for your miracle(s).
How Far Along?: 20w1d ish. The babies are measuring 4 days ahead according to our ultrasound last week.
Due Date: January 14th. Dr. W told us last Tuesday that he will not let me go past December 31st though. I will be 38w by then and the babies should be all nice and plump.
A stranger asked me, “When are you due?” She then told me about her adopted new born baby. It was neat. I was excited to know I finally look pregnant to people other than my family and friends!
Finalizing the nursery bedding. It is on our registry now. There is no turning back! I’m so glad to have this behind us now. I was really stressing out over it!
Seeing our TWO HEALTHY little miracles wiggling, flipping, kicking, and sucking their thumbs on the ultrasound screen!
Getting a confirmation on the genders of our precious little ones.
Telling our friends and family the genders and names of our babies!!
Adding TWO baby showers to my calendar! I cannot believe this is all of happening! I’m so excited and can hardly wait to celebrate our little ones with my friends and family!
Weird Pregnancy Moment: Still rockin’ the swollen feet and ankles. Thanks to Tennessee’s awesomely hot late summer heat wave.
Symptoms: All of them. Kidding. Kidding. Growing belly, nasal congestion (this one is new in the last few weeks), frequent trips to the bathroom, increased appetite, round ligament pain, pelvic pain, pregnancy mask, swollen ankles and feet, shortness of breath, heartburn, and growing boobs. See! All of them!
Cravings/ Aversions: Still drinking a lot of milk.
Anything Make You Queasy: Not eating when I get hungry. I sometimes get queasy when my heartburn get too out of control too. The past few nights I have gotten a little queasy once I get home from work, and I haven’t felt like eating supper. I do force myself to eat something though.
Many people have asked about their names. Here’s the scoop on that.
Big Brother Gavin stressed over naming the babies from the day he found out he would be a big brother to twins. Everytime he got in the car, we had to run through a list of names and “yay” or “nay”. One day he said something about “Ryker”. I told him I would consider it. A few days later, Trey was googling baby boy names and he also mentioned “Ryker”. At that point, it just seemed like our baby boy was destined to be a Ryker.
