After forever of waiting, I finally got measurements of our babes again. It will be the last measurement scan and the last indicator of how big our little guys will be when they're born. They are each around 5.5 lbs currently; the boy a bit smaller than the girl. So, they're small, but mighty. Both… Continue reading 35+2 and FINALLY, a growth scan
Oh boy, you’re about ready!
Shouted the man across the parking lot at the grocery store. "Twins!" I shouted back. "Three weeks and three days left." This was after a woman said "boy or girl?" To which I answered "both." She walked away bewilderedly with no further questions. I don't know if she didn't get it or if she thought… Continue reading Oh boy, you’re about ready!
33 plus some days
I've made it to 33 plus some days and another appointment today for an ultrasound, non-stress test, and doctor's visit. They want to check my cervix today to see if I have what's called invisible dilation. I'm thinking not but we'll see! A year ago today was my second egg retrieval so I again get… Continue reading 33 plus some days

Cucumbers & Cauliflower
27 weeks and some days and I'm feeling pretty great, overall. I'm anxiously awaiting my gestational diabetes test next week and our next appointment to see our sweet little babes. I can't wait to check on them and make sure they're growing appropriately. Almost in my third trimester and under 11 weeks to go, time… Continue reading Cucumbers & Cauliflower
Pictures so far....
Whoaaaaa, we’re halfway there!
19 weeks tomorrow and I'm at least halfway through my pregnancy with our babies. It's hard to believe how quickly time has flown, but at the same time, not. It's an interesting mix of paralyzing fear and realizing that I absolutely have to prepare for these babies, so standing still isn't an option. Justin doesn't… Continue reading Whoaaaaa, we’re halfway there!
Remember a while ago when I told a story about not being able to sleep when I was younger for picture day? One of the few days annually in grade school we got to wear civvies and it was excitement inducing and fun. This afternoon, it's picture day for our little babies! Hopefully, if they… Continue reading Picture day!
Never get too comfortable
It feels like as soon as I wrote the post a couple days ago, the universe was like... "wait, just one second...." I started spotting again (the first time since quitting suppositories with the exception of after my appointment) yesterday morning. It continued throughout the day, but I wasn't specifically worried. Then, last night, it… Continue reading Never get too comfortable
And, the spotting or whatever is back. It is so scary and impossible to literally not want to run home and hide in a dark room. Logically, I know that I can't stop the bleeding, no matter what I do, so going home does nothing. It just scares me because today was a particularly stressful… Continue reading And…it’s back
