The nurse said she was going to give me a quick ultrasound to check on the babies. We were pleasantly surprised because we were told we wouldn't see them for a couple more weeks. Both of them looked good. We are so grateful for these little babies! We watched as one turned from face down to face up and the other one looked like it was scratching its head. The pictures we have from today aren't nearly as good as last weeks so no point in posting them. I go back two weeks from tomorrow for my next appointment.

No, I swear I'm not "sticking it out"! But in my defense I did just eat some spaghetti. I'm starting to worry about the rate at which I'm growing. I'm afraid by next month I won't be able to breathe anymore. And by the way do you know how many of you said "I can't wait to see you get fat"? I think I've been cursed :) !
Last Friday was Kevin's Grandma's birthday. We saw most of his family and were able to tell everyone the news. It was nice to be able to share it with everyone at one time! Now that we have started telling people it has started to feel more concrete...not to mention looking in the mirror everyday. Our next appointment is this Thursday. It was supposed to be today but was rescheduled. I'm hoping our next ultrasound of the bubs will be in about 2 weeks.
Kevin and I are enjoying watching everyone vote on the genders, if you were curious he is convinced it is boy/girl and I'm guessing its 2 of the same...leaning towards 2 boys. But honestly neither one of us could care less, we just want some babies.

Today's appointment went great! We got to watch the babies in action and they were jumping around everywhere. As you can see in the pics they are chillin bunk bed style. Baby A is in the bottom bunk and Baby B is on the top. Baby B was swinging its arms everywhere while Baby A did a complete somersault. My official progress is 11 weeks and 3 days but both babes measured 11 weeks 6 days and are about 2 inches long each. I have gained 8-10 lbs which is a huge accomplishment for me due to the fact that I feel nauseated ALL day long but I continue to force food down about every 2 hours or so. So we were pleased I was able to put that much weight on. Our next appointment will be next Monday but we won't be able to peek in on the babies again for another 3 weeks.
The following are some pictures of the gifts we have received for the babies already and for me. Our family has already started to spoil them! We want to thank our family for all the generous gifts and emotional support you have lent us.
Frog and Duckie from the McBrides, Baby blanket and frame from Nanny and Papa Guitar and Baby clothes, maternity clothes and blanket from Grandma Merris and Grandpa Denny.
Tank top for me from Uncle Jared and Teddy Bear from Grandma Merris and Grandpa Denny.
