Life has been hectic and so, so busy…. Super behind but going to catch you all up in one swoop!!

How are we feeling??!?!?!
Over the moon about having girls…. I took maternity pictures yesterday and my photographer friend brought along her three month old (& shot with her in an Ergo!!!) and I got to snuggle her a little bit at the end! I LOVED IT! Holding a sweet little girl while expecting your very first (two) is definitely a different experience snuggling babies non-preggo.. and, especially in the throws of infertility. I didn’t want to put her down!

Everything is going pretty good….. the feeling of being “uncomfortable” that I’ve been warned about is finally sneaking up on me! It’s the strangest, most difficult to describe feeling I’ve ever experienced! I can’t fit most of my t-shirts anymore, so I’m finding myself rummaging through Thomas’ side of the closet and in his drawers for soft shirts to wear around the house. And, sometimes shirts bother me in general, so there have been moments I’ve gone without.
Sleeping isn’t so restful anymore… Between bathroom trips, getting comfortable with every adjustment, midnight playdates, and insomnia – we don’t get too much rest. I guess it’s just prepping me for real life with twins!

What’s going on with the bump?!?!
This bump is growing and growing and growing…. And, I’m thankful I’m not too concerned about my size because this side view is pretty much panoramic. LOL.. We had our anatomy scan this week and it was so very fun to watch the babies for about two hours! We got a 3D scan of our babies and they were positioned so sweetly!!! Completely snuggled up and moving about! lol. They’re both head down with their feet in my riiiiiiiiiibbbbbbs…….. The optimum position (AT THE END!!!!), but I’m pretty sure they’ll turn quite a few times before it’s time to deliver! I can feel them moving now and so I do feel kicks daily (eeek!!!). For now, they’re soft little thuds…. and, we can handle that!

So, how are you feeling?!
So good…. So thankful. I loved, loved, loved seeing their little faces and that combined with finding out their genders made this whole experience so much more real. They have the cutest features and they actually look like babies now!!!!

Aside from baby feelings, I’m happy with the weight I’ve gained. But, it’s weird…. I get so anxious to get on the scale because I want to know how much I’ve gained…… but, then for a split second I cringe at the number! I’ve never weighed what I do now and don’t care because, hello… I’m pregnant. But, at the same time, it’s still a bit shocking!

Anything else?
ehhhhh……. I’m really digging canned fruit still and Strawberry Limeades from Sonic. I mean, it’s like heaven.

From mommy….
you guys….. mama is thrilled to reveal your genders this weekend! I’ve been working hard to create a “simple” little brunch for you guys and so far I’m quite proud of myself. lol….

Everyone, and I mean so. many. people. are so grateful for you, they are praying for y’all, and are eager to find out what you are! LOL.. It’s so exciting to hear everyone’s guesses of your genders and talking about your personalities. It warms my heart that you are so loved!

– mommy
