Oh 16 weeks! YIPEE!!! With twins we are trying to celebrate each and every week as a big milestone as we know we are a bit higher risk and they may decide to come earlier than we’d hope. So I can’t lie – each Sunday morning as we turn into another week I wake up and nudge Daniel and say we made it!
This particular last week was super exciting for us. I teased you a bit on Monday and asked what you thought the genders would be. We had an appointment this past Thursday. I thought we MIGHT be able to find out but told Dan not to get his hopes up. But before I could make my way into the exam room the ultra sound tech had told Daniel she should be able to tell since we are measuring ahead of schedule. I said – ok – as long as you show me they are happy and healthy I don’t care :) So she did that first – showed me two very healthy happy babies. Then the big moment…Daniel seriously on the edge of his seat
First up – Baby A – my prediction because the little thing never stops moving on the ultra sounds was a boy…so I told the gal and she said….
Then Baby B – my prediction girl because this little one is shy and doesn’t move around a whole lot just enough to let us know everything’s ok. Baby B was a bit trickier. The gal had to work a bit to find out but then she said….
Yes – I am going to be WAY out numbered in the house, but I couldn’t be happier. Two baby boys sent from God to us!
Best moment this week: Oh man – picking one is tricky each week, but especially this week. I have started to (barely and I have to concentrate if that makes sense) begun to feel them both. It is weird since there are two – of course I don’t know what just one feels like – but it is the strangest thing…I can’t wait until I can feel it more. And then of course finding out that their genders.
Movement: Just a little but enough to make me oh so excited!
Food Cravings: Nothing but my full appetite after the flu is back, yipee!!! I still love eggs and cheese a lot!
Sleep: Pretty good. One night after my flu recovery, I could NOT sleep for the life of me. Dan thought switching to the guest bed (it is harder/firmer, I love it!) might help. So after an hour of trying to fall asleep in our bed, I (we) moved into the other bedroom. That didn’t work…so back to our bed. Eventually I fell asleep but it was quite the adventurous journey getting to dream land. Other than that night I’d say I’m still loving sleep!
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody: Happy! Not happy that we had some major well issues and had to spend $$$ to get it fixed and then car problems so had to spend $$$ to get those fixed…right after we bought both cribs and whatnot…I started to freak out. I mean I am a CPA but thankfully Daniel was still at work so my freak out moment came and went.
Miss anything? Nothing at all this week. I walked a 5K with my mom so I felt like I was still a want to be runner hanging out at a race. It felt great to walk outside (I can’t wait for the 50s forecasted for this weekend). I miss runny eggs :( I haven’t let myself indulge in this pregnancy no no…but Daniel loves runny eggs. Usually every Sunday I make him 2 over easy eggs and just stare at them and say to myself…soon :) But until then I am still LOVING eggs of different styles!
