Time is flying by!

August 13th, 2012

19 weeks 6 days

Life has been so crazy busy lately, and time seems to be flying by fast! Which is definitely a change of pace. We had our appointment two weeks ago with our new OB, well the new office, and had our Anatomy scan done and everything was perfectly healthy with both babies! We found out we're expecting two little boys! We're over the top thrilled! We went and registered for the baby showers two weekends ago and then last weekend we painted the nursery and put together the cribs and changing tables! It's so exciting to get things done and see them put together in the nursery!

Baby A and Baby B - 17 weeks 1 day. 

Last Monday our car seats arrived, they were a gift from Erik's mom. My breast feeding pillow also arrived, I chose the My Brest Friend, Double Twins Deluxe thanks to some wonderful recommendations from other moms of multiples, or MoM's. That also arrived. I'm so grateful and excited we got the nursery and the cribs/changing table put together. It's starting to look full in there, I can only imagine how much more full it will be. I'm just glad we can put things in there for them, without having to worry about where we will put the cribs together at, might not seem like a big deal to others but Erik and I do NOT get along when moving furniture. I get the heeby jeebies just thinking about it... ekkk! We also went to a consignment shop, unplanned, last weekend while out and about and I found a $5 pair of Old Navy maternity jeans - ohhhh the comfort!

We have two appointments this week, one tomorrow with our regular OB and one Wednesday with our MFM, which is the Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist - my high risk doctor. I'm hoping for another ultrasound to see our baby boys, just because I love seeing them. I'm sure they are going to want to check my cervix length and such.

In other news, Erik and I are joining a Parents of Multiples group here in our area! I think it's going to be a great idea, and a great way to meet other parents and get advice, not to mention make friends and have play dates for the babies.

I can't get over how fast time is flying by! My goodness it's already August! My baby shower is at the very beginning of September, the 2nd. I'm super excited only because I never thought I would actually get to have a baby shower! I know many people won't be there, and it'll really just be a few friends I have here and my sister in laws and the new Grandma's. But I think it'll still be fun. I'm wanting to get pedicures done with my one sister in law who is helping to plan it and then my friend who is also planning it. I'd really like it if my other two sister in laws came and my mom and MIL but I don't know what they all have planned. So - we'll see.

Erik started painting our guest bathroom this morning, and after a funny with the paint it'll be finished up tomorrow. We opted for a grey color, I think it'll lighten up the room more, and it's neutral enough to change out the feel of it and is on the 'boyish' color scale. It will also be the boys' bathroom. The only thing I really need to figure out in there is the storage, I've been using it for coupon storage (stockpiled items) so I really need to figure that out or take over a shelving unit in the Garage for that. We'll see. I'm in this phase right now where everything needs to be organized, painted, cleaned and pretty. I think part of myself is preparing to be on bedrest and knowing I won't be able to do much to help with preparing so - I want it done now. If that makes sense.

I've started to feel little kicks over the past few weeks, and I absolutely love it!! I get so excited every time I feel it, or feel the little flutters of them moving around. Seriously, it's the most amazing feeling in the entire world.

Here is to another week, and to being half way through this pregnancy!! I can't believe how fast it's gone by!
