22 weeks!

Hello!! I just got home from my doctors appts. The boys are doing GREAT! We are so blessed! Baby A (Leon) is 1 lb 2 oz and Baby B (Logan) is 1 lb 1 oz. Their heart rates are still strong and their anatomy is great! We even got a 3D pic of each of the boys because they are starting to "fill out" as the doctor would say. As far as the pregnancy goes... I passed my first sugar test today! :) The other day I started to notice that my feet and ankles were starting to swell and my legs hurt. I was just told to not walk or stand a lot and elevate my feet as soon as I get home from work. The doctors are afraid though that I might have the beginning stages of Preeclampsia which is totally controllable. I am just so happy that everything is going so smootly right now. My baby shower is in a couple more weeks. (Mar 28) I opted to have it early just because as the babies grow- I grow- and it gets harder to do things that I need to do. Plus, with the swelling it's better to have it early. Anyways, below are a few pics. I don't have a scanner so I had to take a picture of the ultrasound picture with my digital camera. TTYL.

19 weeks!

Well, IT'S TWO BOYS! We are so excited and proud to say that we are having two little guys. The doctor is 99.9% sure of it. She said she saw the male parts a ton of times. How cute. The past week has been no walk in the park though, that's for sure! On Sunday night I started getting cramps in my tummy so I called the doctor and they said to just relax and call on Monday morning if I wasn't feeling better. So, on Monday I called and the doctor said I might be dehydrated and that I did to much strenuous stuff over the weekend, so drink water and stay in bed. (No work.) Tuesday it wasn't any better so I went in. The doctor checked and said that I was having basically growing pains. He checked and saw the babies heart beats were strong and my cervix was fine. So I was told to just take it easy! Today everything looked fine. :)
We decided to surprise my dad today at work with IT'S A BOY balloons. He was so happy! The pic is below of the balloons. We have also registered at Babies R Us so far and we are going to Wal Mart as well. The theme for their nursery is jungle/safari animals. :) Thanks for all the positive comments and thoughts!!! I'll come back soon! :)
