we are P R E G N A N T with T W I N S!!!
it's been a L O N G time coming!
little did the duke and i know that when we got married we would have such a hard time trying to make ourselves a little family.
after so many prayers, so many tears, so many sad days, sad YEARS (f i v e to be exact), we were blessed with a miracle. TWO miracles.
if i'm sore/tired/nauseated it means that my baby is growing.
i'm grateful for that.
i can't wait to see my husband become a father.
the cutest thing in the world is seeing him rub my belly (oh yeah, it's growing, as are other things....) and gazing at it knowing his little babies are in there.
i love it how randomly he tells me little tidbits about pregnancy. LOVE it.
so now i feel like i am so unprepared!
i don't have names picked out! we picked some out FIVE years ago when we started trying and now they're super popular names, so no thank you, i'm not going to name my baby today's equivalent of the jessica's/jennifer's/ashley's of my growing up time. (*disclaimer: no offense if that's your name, they're perfectly LOVELY names, i just don't want to pick a super common name so she has to be known with her last initial/name so anyone knows who you're talking about. but at the same time, i'm not going to pick a crazy name that no one knows how to spell. poor kid.)
i stopped thinking about my babies. well, ok, honestly i never stopped THINKING about them, but i stopped PLANNING things for them....names, nursery decor, birth plan, etc.
so now i'm playing catch up!
now i can crack open "what to expect when you're expecting" that i've had for 5 years and feel like i can actually apply the advice that is given.
i can go on babycenter.com and see the countdown (or count-up?) to 40 weeks.
i'm planning the nursery. goodbye guest room, HELLO nursery! sorry guests, your room is gone. (i'm really not that sorry...hehe)
i'd post a pic of the prego tests, but that's kinda gross. i peed on those. and you bet i tested early! i was supposed to wait until monday morning, but guess who had ants in her pants and did one thursday NIGHT? it was positive. so was the one saturday morning. so was the blood test on monday!
we're so blessed!
oh and my due date is december 19th. but that's if i go 40 W E E K S! twins never go that long. 36 weeks is considered full term for twins. so maybe thanksgiving time? eek! crazy!!
ooooh and i got this dresser for their nursery! i LOVE it! it's just low enough to be a changing table too :)
the picture says "be kind to others" and tucked away in the bottom right corner of the pic is a mirror that i'm going to put above the dresser/changing table. and we scored a free crib...i'm going to paint an accent wall....it's going to be beautiful! :)
