Ultrasounds and chubby cheeks!

This is our 28 Week Ultrasound video.
(Sorry about the watermark over the video I was lazy and didn't find a good file converter yet.  I'll update when I can get a better copy up)

The best part, for me, of the video is a little after 8 minutes when we get to see baby Bs face looking right at the camera! :p  You can see her cute chubby cheeks, I love it!

At my normal appointment on Monday I was measuring a little big.  After going to the specialist on Wednesday for our complete measurement U/S everything is looking great.

Baby A is taking up a bit of room weighing 2lbs 13 oz.  While baby B has her little butt wedged in my rib cage (yes, I can feel it.  Lots of pressure).  Weighing a whopping 3lbs 2 oz.  So they are 5oz from each other but that's fine.  It's just great to hear they are getting over 3lbs!  Makes me confident they will be a healthy weight when born.

My brother was able to close on his house recently!  I'm so happy for him!  From the pictures I've seen it looks amazing.  So we planned a trip May 1st to head down to Vegas and help him move in a bit.  Problem is all 3 of my doctors are saying I shouldn't travel since I'll be 30 weeks around that time and if anything happens on the drive I may not be near a good hospital.  Right now I'm waiting to see how I feel next week.  So we'll see what happens.

I haven't gone too crazy yet without work but I can see I'm running out of things to do!

Tomorrow is my baby shower.  It's going to be a blast to see people I haven't seen forever as well as just chat and eat some good food!

Last day

So today is the last day of work for me.  I've been working since I was 17 and now to be just quitting and not trying to find something new is..........strange.  I'll be honest I have never liked work. Ive had a few jobs that I tolerated and didn't find too bad.  When it came down to it, I'd prefer to just sit back and enjoy life without the thought of "money" in the back of my mind.  The plans for the next several years will be to focus on getting my Bachelors degree while, of course, raising our little girls.  It's a large load to take on but in the end we believe it will be the best outcome for our future.

I really cannot wait, it is like starting a new life!!  I can start new routines. I'll have time to focus on my design and what I like to do to get a move on with a future career.  While in the mean time taking care of my self until the little ones are born. 

I'm truly blessed to have the husband I do!  He is so supportive in what I do.  He was the one insisting I go for my BA rather than AS.  Which is a smart idea but he is willing to take on so much just so I will be allowed to do so!  I love him to death!

I'm going to take this weekend real easy then start making some kind of schedule the next week so I can prepare for my "new" life. =D

It's going to be fun, scary, hard and at times we may want to throw in the towel.  It's what we do though....just keep on truckin'!

Hey, maybe a miracle will happen and I'll start to cook more!

26 Week update

So I've hit 26 weeks!  I was told yesterday that I look like I'm 32 weeks, don't know how to take that lol!
The back pain is really starting to get to me, as well as hip pain while sleeping.  They move like they have all night parties and make my stomach do some crazy shapes.

We have a specialist appointment today again.  Seems like they are wanting to monitor me a little longer than expected.  That's fine.  The safer the better.

My mom and I went and got our hairs did yesterday as a birthday gift for me.  So I no longer have the same hair color/cut as my husband! hahah.  Dark hair is fun but I'm just so used to being my blond self.

Anyway, I probably wont have much of an update after this appointment but we will see!

Easter Weekend..deformed looking stomachs...

Easter weekend was great!  Its the best getting those comatose feelings after such amazing food!

We spent the weekend with my family while Austins family was out of town.  Saturday had a fun time finding some decorations for the upcoming baby shower and deciding what foods to eat. 

Speaking of babies I will have to get these photos up soon cause it was the creepiest thing Ive seen pertaining to my body. Haha....  I was relaxing on the couch at my parents watching the bewb tube when I felt some strange pressure just below the right side of my ribs.  So I slowly glance down and see what looks to be a huge tumor like bulge, protruding about 2 inches high above my stomach!  Austin was sitting next to me I grabbed his arm and squealed, "Look!!!".  He looks over at me and his eyes widen as he says, "HOLY COW!".  He instantly got up to get some photos.  I tell you what it was definitely an experience, Im sure there will be more of those to come.  One of those little trouble makers must have been doing a summer salt or something...silly thing.

Anyway, Sunday was great the food was amazing.  Thank you again Mom and Dad!  We were able to get out and see Alice in Wonderland just before dinner time.  Good movie but most uncomfortable one Ive ever sat through to date.  I was getting back pains from hell! 

This week looks to be another slightly busy week.  Hair appointments followed by another specialist appointment just to check the smaller measurements for the kiddies.

I dont mind the busy weeks its keeping me occupied while this horrible weather keeps cracking down on us!

Its April people!  It is supposed to be nice! Or at least just raining NOT snowing!!!!!!

K lets all work on thinking nice weather from here on out!  K thanks!

Till another day! <3

It's April already!  This year has been flying by so quickly.  It seems to be if you have things planned in the year to come it makes the days fly by.  I do not mind this one bit!  I would love for June to get here....NOW! =D

Although I'm very upset with the weather being as uncooperative as it is.  It should not be a blizzard in April!  I want birds singing, trees blossoming, pretty sky's and happy faces!  Instead I'm still bundled in my beanie and sweater.    Soon enough mother nature will bring me what I want.

Bright side, today is Thursday, this means tomorrows Friday.  Friday means weekend!  Weekend means....I don't know but it will be awesome and you all know it.

Anyway, I feel like having a couple of the cookies I made last night, while I lounge around and listen to some tunes.
