It’s about time….

I am the worst, I know. I’m not even going to apologize for the lack of updates because it has been so long. But here we are, sliding into 21 weeks of pregnancy. It has been an interesting process – my belly is growing daily, literally and I have gained 24 pounds already!! I’m on target to where I need to be for weight gain with twins, but man! It’s really mostly in my belly, I promise ;-). So the big news is that we found out we are having a BOY and a GIRL!!!! It was so exciting when we found out. We’ve had one more ultrasound since then and still looks like the sexes are accurate. We had our big 20/21 week scan this week where they measure everything, look at the organs, the heart, etc. The scan went well and the doctor ushered us out for another 4 week wait until our next visit. After that visit, we will likely start going to the doctor more frequently and we will have an ultrasound each time we go to monitor the babies’ progress, check for any signs of preterm labor, etc. Pregnancy has been so interesting and scary at times. Seems my body does something different every day and of course I am changing shape rapidly! Maybe I will try and post a picture of my big old belly.

Alex and I have even started the process of cleaning out the room we will use as the nursery. And when I say process, I mean process. We have essentially used the room as our ‘junk’ room since we moved in 4.5 years ago, so it is quite an effort to get it cleaned up. We are going to paint the walls a sage green and decorate with a palm tree decor. We’ve bought our nursery furniture and our big double stroller should be arriving today. We ordered a glider and I’ve even registered for baby stuff. It is crazy! But fun. I am so clueless about all of this stuff so luckily I have a couple of smart people guiding me. I am counting on the maternal instincts to kick in once the babes are here….for now, I still feel totally not in the know.

So that’s about all for now. I will try to do better with updates, but I know I say that every time. Maybe I will post some pics of the nursery when we get it done ;-).

Love to all,
